Order processing

Top rule

IBM will accept orders for these products only before the withdrawal date. If you defer the shipment date currently assigned to an existing order for a withdrawn product, IBM may not be able to supply the product. IBM will process existing orders without assigned shipment dates and new orders on an "as available" basis. This means that if supply is available, IBM will assign an estimated shipment date. Otherwise, IBM will advise you, not later than one month after the effective date of withdrawal, that your order cannot be accepted.

As your option, you may cancel existing orders for withdrawn products before shipment without penalty.

Your IBM Sales representative or IBM Business Partner can provide you with information about available replacement products.
