On some occasions, after you click "Proceed to Checkout,"
or complete your transaction, an item you purchased may actually be out of stock. This
happens either if inventory for that item was very low when
you began to shop and a customer (or customers) ahead of you
in Checkout bought it first, or if the item was a best seller,
and demand for it quickly exceeded our inventory.
If an item in your order is out-of-stock or backordered, it
will be shipped as soon as it becomes available. This
ship-date can range anywhere from a 2-3 days to 3-4 weeks
depending on the manufacturer.
If an item you purchased is out of stock and must be specially ordered from the manufacturer
your credit card will be charged for the full amount of the order. This transaction is
considered a deposit for the special-order items.
