Back-order items are items that are not currently in stock at our warehouse but can be requested from our distributors. Once a back-order is placed, we will check with our distributors to see if we can procure that item. This process can take up to 2 weeks to complete. Please kindly understand that in some cases it may not be possible to fulfill back-orders depending on the distributor’s stock status. Please keep in mind that combining Back-order items with in-stock items will delay your in-stock order's shipment, and in some cases we may separate such combinations. Only items marked as "Back-order" are eligible to be back-ordered. Items marked as "Unavailable", "Pre-orders Closed" or "Orders Closed" cannot be back-ordered.
