About Availability

The availability estimate on each product detail page tells you how soon we can dispatch the item to you.

When you shop at Amazon from outside mainland UK, product detail page messaging will let you know whether an item can be delivered to you. To determine your location we'll use your default 1-Click delivery address when you're signed in to your account and 1-Click has been set up; otherwise, we'll use your IP address.

You may see a number of different availability estimates at These estimates apply only to items sold and dispatched by Amazon. For example:

In Stock
The item is available; we expect to prepare it for dispatch within a few hours to a few days, depending on the delivery option you chose.
Any other specific length of time (3-4 days, 3-5 weeks, 1-2 months)
The item will take this amount of time to receive from the supplier, pack and prepare for dispatch.
Available for Pre-order
The latest release date information that we have for the item will be displayed on the product detail page. If you want to pre-order the item, we'll dispatch it once the release date passes and the item is made available to us by the supplier. Pre-order items imported from another country may take longer to dispatch once the release date has passed. For example, we estimate that pre-order items imported from the United States will dispatch 7 days after the release date.
Temporarily Out of Stock
The item isn't currently in stock but is available for ordering. If you place an order, we'll send you an e-mail with the expected delivery date as soon as we have that information from our suppliers. It's possible that you could order the item (new or used) from a Seller on Marketplace. Look for the More Buying Choices box on the product detail page.
Currently Unavailable
This item is currently unavailable for ordering and it may not be in stock again.

Note: The availability estimates are for single-copy orders only. If you're ordering more than one of a single item, here are some things to consider that may impact when your order dispatches:

  • Multiple copies of the same item may not be available.
  • Orders for multiple copies of a single item could dispatch from different locations in separate deliveries because we spread our inventory across our network.
  • Larger orders take longer to prepare and dispatch.
