Real Time Inventory
With the launch of our new site Atlantic Cigar has switched to Real Time Inventory. We did this for a variety of reasons, but mainly to show the customers what’s in stock and available for purchase right away. Some products are still available for Backorder, but unlike the past, not all products are available. We have built a Notification system in for items that are Out of Stock, or on Backorder. If you choose the “Notify” Button, you will be asked for your name and email. As soon as these items come into the warehouse, you will receive an email with a link to the item. You can also call us when you receive the notification to order the item.
Each Product have Stock Status associated with it, they are listed here:
|In Stock||In our warehouse and ready for shipping today|
|In Stock, Dropship||This is a dropship item. We only dropship a small amount of our inventory. If you order a dropship item, we will contact you to let you know how long it will take to get to you. Most orders will be within 1 – 2 weeks.|
|*Backordered- Less Than a Week||The product is on Backorder. We expect to receive this item within a week in our warehouse. Backorders are filled as the product arrives. More details on our Backorder policies are in the next section.|
|*Backordered – 1 to 2 Weeks||The product is on Backorder. We expect to receive this product in our warehouse within 1 to 2 weeks.|
|Out of Stock – No Backorders||This item is Out of Stock and we are not currently taking backorders for it. You can choose to be Notified when it comes in.|
*Please note – The Backorder times are estimates. Due to the nature of our industry and the manufacturing process, we are making our best guess on how long, on an average it takes to receive a product. Some manufacturers may hold a product on backorder for an undetermined amount of time due to unknown reasons.
Again due to the nature of our business, keeping Real Time Inventory can be very difficult. With many items on Backorder with the Manufacturer, customer’s on Backorder in the system, we would like to say that we are close to 95% correct when we give an inventory status.
Although we are using a Real Time Inventory system, some of the items on the site are still available for Backorder. If an item is available for Backorder, you will be able to place it in your cart, and the item will show an an estimate of when we will have it back in stock (1 - 2 Weeks, Less Than a Week, etc). Just like any of our other inventory systems, we fill backorders in the order that they are received.
When you place an order, we will ship any items that we have in stock immediately. If your order contains a Backordered item, we will ship it out as soon as it arrives in our warehouse. Because of our real-time inventory system, it is our policy *not to "hold" orders, item's will go out as they are available. You will not be charged any additional shipping fee, however a $2.95 Handling Fee will be charged per backordered item. If you need us to hold your order until all of your items are available, please call (800) 887-7877 or email us.
Please note: ALL International Backorders will be held until they can be completely filled.
Most Out of Stock items arrive back in our warehouse within a week, sometimes longer depending on the manufacturor. Instead of placing Backorders, we recommend putting yourself on the Notification List for the product you want to purchase. When that product comes into the warehouse, you will recieve an E-mail the same day.
*For customers using Debit Cards for Backordered Items. Please make sure that you balance your checking account taking into account the purchase price for the Backordered Items. We do not bill your card until your order ships. Therefore if your backordered item is marked for fulfilment and you do not have the funds available, the purchase will overdraft your bank account.
Atlantic has built a Notification system into our website for items that are out of stock. If an item sells out on our website, you will see an orange "Notify" button appear. If you click this button, you will be asked for your name and your Email. *Atlantic Cigar Co will never use this information for anything beyond Notification purposes. As soon as the item comes into our warehouse, you will receive an Email with a link to purchase this product. Once again items are on a first come, first serve basis. To ensure you will get a chance to purchase this product while it's in stock, we recommend you put your order in as soon as you can. We recommend that you use Product Notification over Backordering, that way you can avoid the Backorder Fees.
AtlanticCigar.com welcomes Canadian, International and APO/FPO (Military) orders as well. Due to the complexities involved with International orders, such as customs clearance and local carrier procedures, the following policies and requirements will be applied to international orders:
