What is SUBTYPE Raffle and how does it work?
We've introduced a new raffle system.
You can enter the raffle via our SUBTYPE website for the opportunity to purchase limited release and exclusive products. We know there's a high demand for these releases so we want to give everyone an equal opportunity to purchase.
Entering this raffle ensures that you'll be able to purchase your size should you win.
How do I enter?
In order to enter the raffle, there are a few conditions:
- Entry is via the product page
- You must either create an account with us OR log into your account
- You'll be prompted to verify your email address, phone number, shipping details and payment details (Credit card or PayPal only.) You will not be able to enter without verifying this.
- You'll then be prompted to answer a specific challenge question based on the product
- Select the product & size that you're after
- Once done, you'll receive a confirmation email
- If successful, you'll receive an email to confirm (please note: winners will automatically be charged if successful. If payment is unsuccessful the product will be allocated to the next customer.)
- If unsuccessful, you'll receive an email letting you know.
Does it cost anything to enter?
It's free to enter and you don't have to purchase anything to enter the raffle. Simply jump onto our website and select the "Releases" category to see the full list of limited product. Choose the product that you're interested and follow the above process to enter.
When you enter a raffle and verify your payment details, you'll be charged a pending amount of $0 - $1 which will void as soon as your account is verified. Find out more here.
Please note that payment can only be made by credit card or PayPal for SUBTYPE raffles.
How does payment work?

Why has my account been charged $1?
When you create an account with SUBTYPE and save your payment details, an authorisation charge of $0 or $1 will be charged. This is a common practice by banking gateways to verify cards. Please know that this charge will be automatically voided.
The $1 transaction you see on your credit card statement is not a charge, just a temporary hold on funds. It is not debited into the SUBTYPE account and SUBTYPE cannot access this money.
For most financial institutions, a $0 authorisation will first be tried. If this authorisation is not supported, a $1 authorisation will automatically be performed.
In any instance where a $1 authorization returns a successful result, our payment gateway immediately follows up with an automatic void request to cancel the transaction. This is to ensure the transaction does not settle and that it disappears from your statement as soon as possible.
If you find that the charge does not void, please contact your financial institution.
