You can choose to replace the Out of Stock goods with goods that are In Stock and of the same value, cancel the order for the Out of Stock goods, or cancel the entire order.

- If our suppliers have the goods in stock, then an additional delay of 5-10 days can be expected.
- If our Suppliers do not have the goods in stock, then the goods may not be able to be delivered.
We will advise you of the situation involving your order within 5 business days of the goods being placed on Back Order.
