Inventory Status CodesWe use the following inventory codes to display the general availability of the item:
In stock: We have plenty in stock.
Low stock: It is possible that we will run out of the item within hours/days.
Very low: It is possible that your order or part of it will go into backorder.
Backorder: We currently have no stock, but more are expected soon.
Pre-order: This product is currently being manufactured and we are accepting pre-order for it.
Special order only: Order for this product is accepted only as a special order and additional time is required to prepare your order.
Discontinued: Maker is now defunct or has voluntarily discontinued production of this item. Although we may be able to supply you this item, it is not sure. Please contact us first if you are considering order.
Second hand: The item is second hand and not a brand new one. Many of our more rare items are second hand models, as brand new ones are near impossible to obtain these days.
Please note that the stock statuses at our website are not yet automated – they are manually updated and some time lag occurs. At the time of writing this we are planning to implement automatic inventory display, so please bear with us while we develop the new system.
If you are concerned about the stock availability of specific item please contact the approriate division/website for stock confirmation before ordering.
If you wish to order item that is in backorder/discontinued status we might be able to accept your order, but please do contact the approriate division/website first before ordering.
