I am pleased to announce that we have implemented a back-ordering system at gumstix.com. This back-ordering capability allows a customer order to be placed even if not all the products are in stock.
Each order only provides one shipment, so:
1/ If all items of your order are in stock and you place your order on a business day before 3PM PST (GMT-8), then the order should ship the same day.
2/ In-stock orders placed on a business day after 3PM PST or on a non-business day should ship the next business day.
3/ If your order contains any out-of-stock items, you should be notified within 15 business days when your order ships.
Your credit card will not be charged until your order ships.
Please note that the capability to provide back-ordering has not been achievable with Paypal. So, only credit cards may be used for purchasing products at
