    On the checkout page, for each item, an estimated date of shipment will be provided when possible, and from which distribution center they will be shipping from to provide an estimated delivery date.

    While selecting a delivery method, there is an additional choice to either send items separately as soon as they are available or to group into as few shipments as possible. The estimated shipping dates will adjust accordingly.
