We will not back order out-of-stock items for International Destinations.

If you accidentally order an item that is out-of-stock, we will attempt to notify you so you can switch to another product. If we are unable to contact you, the order will ship without delay minus the out-of-stock item. If you paid by money order, we will mail you a refund. If you paid by a U.S. credit card, your card will not be charged for the items out-of-stock.
