What Happens if My Item Is on Backorder?

We strive to keep most items in stock for immediate delivery (unless we specify that it is available on Special Order basis only).

In the event that an item is out of stock or for any other reason it's unable to be shipped, we will notify you usually within one business day. We will keep the order open unless told to cancel it. When the item is in stock, we will ship it out to you. Your credit card will only be charged at the actual time of shipment, there might be a hold on the funds until the time of shipment.

Due to high international shipping costs and taxes and duty fees, we cannot ship any international order that includes backordered items. We will hold the order until all items are in stock and available to ship. Contact us if you wish to cancel or change these items.
