About Items With Different Availabilities

When you order items you can choose how to have them delivered to you, depending on their availability.

"Group my items into as few deliveries as possible"

Choosing this option during checkout means that we'll wait until we have all the items in your order before dispatching them. For example, if you order one item marked as Usually dispatches within 2 to 3 days and another marked Special Order: usually dispatches within 4 to 6 weeks, we'll dispatch both to you when the special order item becomes available.

Note: Very occasionally, we may choose to deliver non-gift orders as the items become available, even where you've selected to have only 1 delivery when your complete order is ready. In these circumstances you'll be charged only for 1 delivery.

"I want my items faster. Dispatch items as they become available (at additional cost)"

Choosing this option during checkout means that each item you order will be dispatched as it becomes available. This may mean that your delivery charges will increase as there'll be a charge for each separate delivery.

If you're ordering using 1-Click, unless you change your 1-Click settings mid-session, all 1-Click orders you place within a 30-minute period will be combined as follows:

  • items with availabilities of 3 days or less will be dispatched together
  • items with availabilities of over 3 days, including not yet published or released items, will be dispatched together, on the basis of similar availability, wherever possible.
