Drop Ship (marketing): Within 48 hours of receiving an order, it is forwarded to the Copyright holder, author, publisher, etc. (usually by postal system). That person maintains all book inventory and controls shipment. After they receive the order, they fill/ship it within 10 days. Due to the many individuals and businesses as well as different shipping methods Gregath does not guarantee a specific carrier or class. If the person has failed to inform Gregath as to an out of print status, a full refund is issued for the unavailable book. See Also Special Order
