Our estimated shipping dates are based on several factors, including your destination address, how quickly we can obtain and assemble items for shipment (the "usually ships within" time listed on a product's detail page), and whether you have requested that we minimize the number of shipments or ship items as they become available.
We calculate delivery estimates by taking the estimated shipping date and adding the time it takes a package to travel from our facilities to your destination address, based on the shipping speed you've chosen. Orders for multiple items or multiple copies of a single item can take longer to assemble before we're able to ship them to you.

Note that changing your shipping speed will not affect the estimated shipping date, but it will improve the estimated delivery date.
