If a book is out-of-stock, there will be a wait between the date you place an order and when it will be delivered to you. Our standard delivery estimates apply once a title is restocked and has been sent from our partner's warehouse.
The time it takes for stock to arrive will vary depending on the title. When viewing any book on Bookshop.org, check under the “Add to Basket” button for specific information as to when you can expect delivery. For example:
Payment for out-of-stock titles is taken at time of purchase.
You can check the progress of your order or cancel any unavailable item before it leaves our partner’s warehouse either by visiting the ‘My Orders’ section in your Bookshop.org account or by clicking on ‘View Order’ on your email confirmation.
Please note that you still get to choose from different shipping options at checkout if your order is out-of-stock. There will still be a wait before despatch, but this way, you can choose how quick delivery will take once we receive stock.
