Some of you may have noticed that the backorder feature is no longer available so I thought i’d explain why. Basically it’s cost to the business, due to the time it takes to receive re-stock orders not just from the USA but the UK as well i’m ending up with rather a lot of backordered items with many orders that are coming in having at least one backordered item on them. In order to not delay shipment of these orders i’ve been sending them out and then sending the out of stock item at a later date. Obviously these follow on shipments are at my expense and i’m afraid with so many orders being handled this way shipping is costing me double, what with the extra packaging and postage costs not to mention the extra time too. So i’ve had to remove the backorder feature for the time being to save money and time. I hope this change will not effect anyone unduly and apologies if it does but I can’t sustain doubling up on postage it dosen’t make good business sense.
All backorders currently placed will be fufilled once my shipments turn up but after that only in stock items will be available to purchase. The DiD re-stock will put most items back in store with only a few models needing to be ordered and the Onslaught shipment is a little delayed but should be here by early next month.
