How Do Preorders Work?

Preorders allow you to purchase an item that has not yet been released for shipping. The preorder purchase will guarantee you the qty of the item you purchased when it becomes available. Preorder items are clearly marked as preorders with the “add to cart” button changing to a “preorder” button. There will also be an expected shipment date listed on the product page.

The preorder process works as follows:

  • -You add the product(s) to your cart as you would any regular, in stock product
  • -You complete the checkout process and receive your order confirmation
  • -Your payment method is authorized for the full order total at the time of purchase (completing the order)
  • -Your order will be on preorder hold until the item(s) you purchased are available
  • -Your order will be fulfilled and shipped and you will then be billed and will receive a shipment confirmation

If you ordered both a preordered product and an in stock product, the in stock product(s) will be processed and shipped without delay and you will be billed for the shipped product(s). The preordered product(s) will remain on preorder until it is available. At that time, the product(s) will be released fulfillment and shipment. You will then be billed for the product and will receive a shipment confirmation.
