A product's availability is clearly noted on the product detail page as: In Stock, In Store, Out-of-Stock, Discontinued Online, Advanced Sale or Release Date. Most items on our site are In Stock and ready to ship. Some items are either temporarily out-of-stock online (and may be available at your local RadioShack retail store), or are not available for shipment until a specific release date provided by the manufacturer (Release Date items). For more information, please read the details below.
Most orders for In-Stock items begin the order process as soon as your online purchase is completed. Your In-Stock item will be shipped once the item is located in stock, your payment is approved, and the receiving address is verified. You will not be charged for any item until it is shipped to you.
For example, if you order an In-Stock item on Monday that leaves the warehouse in 1-2 full business days, it will leave the warehouse by end-of-day Wednesday. After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you select during Checkout and the location of your shipping address. Please note that business days are Monday-Friday, excluding federal holidays within the United States.
In Store Items
RadioShack.com provides access to a greater diversity of products than you will find in your local RadioShack retail store. Products carried by retail stores will be noted in the "Other ways to get it" section of the product detail page. If you wish to purchase the item at a retail store, simply click on "Available at most stores, find it near you" to locate the item in your area.
If you would like to be notified when an item returns in stock, sign up to receive a Back In Stock email notification. (Note: This service is for notification purposes only. Signing up for Back In Stock e-mail notification will not "hold" or "reserve" a product for you. Quantities may be limited for items that return in stock.)
From time-to-time we alter the mix of products sold at RadioShack.com. A product that is discontinued online will not be available for purchase online. However, limited quantities may still be available at your local RadioShack retail store. Simply click "Available at most stores, find it near you" to locate the item in your area.
Advanced Sale Items
If an item that you have already purchased goes out-of-stock, you will be notified of the status via an Advanced Sale e-mail. The Advanced Sale item will be shipped directly to you once it is in stock. You will not be charged for any item until it is shipped to you.
Release Date Items
Release Date items are items that are available for purchase on our site in advance of the manufacturer's release date for sale to the general public. Release Date items are shipped directly to you once the approved release date arrives. You will be notified of the status of your Release Date item via e-mail. You will not be charged for any item until it is shipped to you. Expected shipment time (for example, "Release Date: Buy now for shipping on 04 / 08 / 2005") is indicated on the product detail page.
Please note, expected shipment times appearing on the product detail page specify when an item is expected to leave our warehouse, not when the item will arrive at its final shipping destination. After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you select during Checkout and the location of your shipping address.
