Even if a title has the availability of "Out of Stock" or "Temporarily Out of Stock", orders can still be placed as long as that listing has a buy button.

Since your book is print on demand, your book is always virtually “in stock” and available for order from Lightning Source. We strive to provide retail channels timely updates with current information so they have the potential to show Lightning Source titles as available as “in stock” to their customers.

Occasionally, however, channels may list a title as “temporarily unavailable”, available within a certain time frame, or “out of stock.” Every retailer has their own method for determining what the availability status of a title is on their website and, as a retailer, they are free to do so. Please remember that although a website may list your title as unavailable, stores can still order your book.

If your title is listed as unavailable for ordering on a retailer’s website, we can rebroadcast the metadata feed we send through the distribution channels.

Occasionally this resolves the issue, but we are unable to provide any guarantees, as most availability messages are determined by, among others; a retailers systems, ordering strategies, alternate vendors, etc..
