1. How can I access my previous online orders with TrainWorld?
To access your old orders, visit old.trainworld.com and from there you can view your old order history including preorders. You'll need to log in with the user name and password that you used for our old website.
2. How do I register for the new website?
3. How do I use my store credit?
When you've placed the items you'd like to purchase in your cart and are ready to checkout, click on the shopping cart icon in the top right of the website, then click "checkout." If you're already logged in, you'll see that your information from your account profile will automatically populate, but you can change it if needed, choose your shipping method, click next. On this page, plug in your payment information and agree to the terms. You can apply any current discount codes or use a gift card if you have one. If you have a recent store credit from after the time our new site has launched, it will automatically appear on this page and you can choose to apply it towards your current purchase. If you have a previous store credit from the old website that you’d like to apply towards your order, you will note that on this last page of the checkout process. Simply write "Apply my credit to this purchase." in this blank box here. Since we deduct your credit from the order total at processing, you won’t see the credit reflected here during the checkout process, however, you will see it reflected on the physical copy of the invoice that is sent to you with your purchased items. Once all the information is filled out, all you do is click on this “place order” button and you’re done! For a quick video tutorial on how to navigate the new website, see the video below.
