Do all items need to be in stock for an order to begin being filled?

    Do all items need to be in stock for an order to begin being filled?


    If so, that kinda stinks. Especially if you have A LOT of different items.

    For instance, I'm waiting on two things to be stocked (one of which I don't think will be stocked again: the Xtend deal with the free orange, and also some Theanine) and I'm stuck in the "Pending" mode.

    Just curious!

    Everything needs to be in stock in order to check out which is kind of a pain in the ass. I've had the same items in my shopping cart for probably close to two weeks and at least one item has always been out of stock so I cannot put my order through. It's not a big deal to me b/c I do not need any of the products until the end of the month but it would be nice to take advantage of the sale. I do understand the current situation they are dealing with though...sale...holidays...sup pliers...etc...

    Hopefully NP can change this so you can place the order and they will package your order as out of stock products come in...

    Only problem with this is it will cost Nutra more money in shipping charges, which will eventually trickle down to charging more for the products they sell to cover operation costs.

    Besides, chasing back orders is really a customer service nightmare, distributors have delays, companies sometimes shortship products or have less than expected production runs, miss promised deadlines or sometimes people just make mistakes, and Nutra would have to bear the burden of dealing with all those things outside of their control while waiting to fill customer backorders for out of stock merchandise that was ordered and I dont think Nurta would even think about getting into something that would taint their near perfect customer service reputation.

    OMG !!! Someone finally gets it...LOL! Naw, but seriously...you hit the nail right on the head.

    For added clarification, you can place an order even if something is out of stock, but on certain items we've disallowed oversell due to: discontinuation, MAJOR delays in arrival, or extended backorders. Items that are out of stock but quickly replenishable, we allow to oversell, and we ship out the order in it's entirety once those items arrive.

    Well how about this :


    you put all the items that are currently available in stock in the box , and when the out-of-stock items are back in stock you can just add them to the box. This guarantees that at least the customer will only be waiting for whatever was out of stock when the order was placed, and NOT what also is currently out of stock that is part of the order.

    The only downfall here that I see is the fact that you will probably need a lot of space to keep these boxes that are waiting for items to arrive.

    Will this item be stocked again? The deal is great and I'm more than willing to wait on a deal like that!
