Wow! I wonder why the wait on the black version? If I was purchasing for my girlfriend, I would have already put in an order!

“Ships Next Day” and “In Stock” are not the same. Ships next day implies the supplier should be able to get the item to FT in time for it to ship the next day.

In stock means the item is already at FT and they don’t have to wait on delivery. Anyway AFAIK this was my understanding from CS several months ago.

I think it is the other way round (what makes it even more confusing).

in stock = in stock at the supplier

ships next day = available at the FT warehouse and can ship within 24h

All my "ships next day" shipped actually and for in stock I had to wait 2-3 days.

Ordered a bunch of Cleito drip tips. Some were in stock, some were "ships next day" and some were "ships in 7 business days".

Made one order with the ones that said "ships next day", and another order with the other statuses. Paid extra for shipping because in this way both orders were less than 20 dollars. I thought I was smart doing this, because at least one order would ship fast.

Both orders shipped on the same day, after 7 business days. I gave up trying to make sense out of it.

As Watercool said, the distinction is correct it's just the other way round.

The other colours are on 10 day pre-order (allegedly) but this colour had changed to ships next day, so it must have been deliberate. The order page shows the same time frame as the other colour options though.

I expect pre-order/ships in x days to be a piss take because it so often is, just surprised it's spread to stuff that's supposedly in FTs hands.

Where am I? I've never shopped here before. What is ETA? Is FT a reseller? Fucking douchebag.

Consider yourself lucky. It may have saved you 2 weeks in receiving it and 2 more weeks returning it. They have been recalled.
