How Pre-Orders workItems that are not currently in stock are marked "pre-order". If you are interested in an item that is out of stock you can chose the pre-order option. If you are paying with credit card, we will bill and ship you when the item arrives. If you pay with PayPal, payments are made in full at time of order. Most pre-order items arrive within 2-3 weeks. You can cancel a pre-order at anytime (provided the order has not shipped from our warehouse to you).
