Usually ships by the release dateThe item is expected to become available for shipment by the release date if it is pre-orderd while this indication is shown.
Usually ships in 1-4 days after it is releasedIt may take additional time if they are pre-ordered right before the release date, or if the supplier has received more pre-orders than they are able to fulfill on the release date. An approximate span of time is displayed in such cases. Record companies and suppliers need time to make arrangement to supply new releases. If any item is pre-ordered immediately before the release date, they will need a few extra days after the released date to supply it. Similarly, they need extra time if they have already received more pre-orders than they are able to fulfill right on the release date.
Collectibles, Figures & BooksManufacturers are not necessarily able to control the actual amount of time needed to make products available. So, an approximate date such as March 2017 or June 2017 is shown as the release date. For such products a default length of time (normally 3-7 days for most manufacturers) is shown as availability, but the product will actually become available for shipment as soon as the manufacturer has finished the production. Similarly, an approximate date is shown as release dates for some books.

Record companies and suppliers continue updating availability they feed into our website as long as they continue receiving orders from stores. However, if they are no longer receiving orders frequently, the information is no longer updated. In such a case, this default length of time is indicated. It is based on the average length of time they needed to fulfill orders in the past. It is a rough estimate. In some cases, items with this indication prove to be unobtainable.
