“Unavailability” is the special book status reflected by the import and export corporations, which means that the item is unavailable to be imported for the time being.

The possible reasons are:

  • The status (e.g., out of stock, out of print, print on demand) has not been updated on time on the publisher’s website;
  • Regional sales restriction;
  • The book probably contains sensitive content according to relevant laws or regulations;

Other specific reasons will be updated after confirmation with publishers.
