A: RTS means the item is ready to ship! These items are in stock and do not require additional processing time. In general, these items will ship out within 1 business day of placing your order.

Q: What is a Buy-In?
A: A buy-in is when orders are collected for a specific product that allows a larger amount to be purchased in bulk and as a group. This provides everyone with lower costs for purchasing items without having to purchase bulk quantities themselves. Buy-Ins typically last around 2 weeks, then it is closed to new orders and the bulk product will be ordered. Many Buy-Ins have long turnaround times, but all estimated time frames will be provided before ordering. Please pay attention to the estimated timeline for your items when placing your orders.

Q: What is a Preorder?
A: Preorders are opened when bulk quantities of a product have already been ordered, but are awaiting arrival to our company. Occasionally, products will have preorders opened for them due to high demand shown after a bulk order has already been placed. Estimated time frames for preorders to arrive also vary considerably depending on the product. Please make sure to pay attention to the estimated time frame provided when making your purchase.

Q: How do I get updates on Preorders or Buy-In orders placed?
