When calculating how long it will take to receive an item, you need
to take into account its availability. This is shown on the item's product
information page (the page on which the item's name, image and reviews are
displayed). The availability is just below or next to the image.
Availabilities are as follows:
- in stock (auf Lager): if
we have at least one of the item in stock in one of our fulfilment
centres this is the estimated
time it will take to pack it and prepare it for dispatch. If the item
is being fulfilled by a seller other than Amazon.de, then the seller
has the item on hand and can ship it out within 2 business days.
- any other specific length of time, eg: 3-4
days/weeks (Gewöhnlich versandfertig in X bis Y Tagen/Wochen): if the
item is available but not in stock, this is the estimated time it will take us
to receive it from the supplier, pack it and prepare it for
- not yet available/published (Noch nicht
erschienen): you can still order this title; it will be sent to you as soon
we receive it from the supplier. The latest release-date information we have
from the suppliers may also be displayed.
- currently unable to offer this title (Führen
wir nicht oder nicht mehr): this item may be out of stock with our supplier
or out of print. If you would like to purchase it, we recommend you
occasionally check this page to see if it has become available.
Once you know the availability, you can use the
time to calculate the total delivery time for the item.
To keep you fully informed of the progress of your order, we'll send
you one e-mail when we receive it and another when we dispatch it from our
fulfilment centre, confirming the date, contents and method of delivery.
