How can you tell its out of stock if I can still add it to my shopping cart and head to the checkout area?
Most merchants (aside from Newegg and a couple others) allow you to order out of stock items, buddha, not a new concept. Most merchants prefer this method because it allows them to minimize their inventory carrying costs and preorders minimize efforts in estimating demand.
When I purchased it, the stock notifcation said in stock, same day shipping
, now it says call for availability
which typically means they are out of stock.
No sane merchant wants a customer to call if they have the product in stock. That interrupts the customer's purchase process and encourages them to look for alternatives. You want them to be able to transact at the instant, not add more steps.
