Why do I encounter various availability listings on your site?

Titles have different availabilities simply due to their demand, proximity, and availability to Omega.com.ng. We also source our products from various distributors. The availability on products we obtain from distributors may vary according to whether the distributor has the product in stock or not.

If a title is listed as out of stock or unavailable, it means that it is not currently available or not in stock through our distribution channels. 

How can I make it easier for customers to find my product?

You can ensure that your product listing has complete and correct title, author/artist/actor, and subject information. This information helps customers easily find items they will want to purchase in our store.

In addition, we offer our customers numerous tools to aid them in their hunt.

Why are some titles discounted while others are not?

Our decision to discount products is made internally and based on a number of strategic considerations which can vary over time. As it stands now, we offer discounts on hundreds of thousands of selected titles. However we cannot confirm when, if ever, a title will be discounted or how long a title once discounted will remain so.
