What does it mean when my item is on backorder?
When items are not in stock, the entire order can be delayed. You can request that the order begin production anyway, allowing the in-stock items to be produced under normal turn times. We call this: ""ship and backorder."" When the out-of-stock items, or ""backorder items,"" arrive at our facility, we will produce and ship a second, separate order. By requesting a backorder, there will be an additional invoice as GTM Sportswear invoices items as they are shipped from our facilities.
