A Pre Order is a title that has not yet been released by the record company.
They have an expected release date, that date can be pushed back later, or deleted altogether.
Having a preorder active, does NOT guarantee a copy of the item. While we do our best to fulfill all preorders, it is possible that some preorders (especially those with limited production numbers) will not be fulfilled.
We always recommend to wait as long as possible before cancelling a preorder as release dates can change and shipping delays are part of the record industry.
If you wish to cancel a preorder please see the article on Cancelling Orders.
