[BROADTIME STORES] - Tool Allocation, Panic Bump, Changing a Preorder Address, New Preorders, Weekly Social Assets, Blocks and More - March 3, 2022


Greetings everyone, 

Tool caused quite the stir in the industry last week with the announcement of its Fear Incoulum box set. We blew through our allocation almost as soon as the street date was released. More info on this title and what to do if you're expecting to get product in your store that you'd like to list online is below. 

We also got word that the Widespread Panic release slated to come out tomorrow has been bumped. 

More on that plus, a Two Minute Clinic on changing the address on a preorder that's been submitted to AEC, as well as our weekly list of new featured preorders, that's streeting this week, plus social assets for you to use on your social channels and items currently blocked for preorder.

We're always here to help answer any questions you have or to assist in any way - support@broadtime.com

Stay safe! Music matters!
Jon and the Broadtime team

Tool Fear Inoculum Blocked 

Last Friday, Tool announced that a deluxe five-LP vinyl box set of its 2019 album Fear Inoculum would drop on April 8. 

We blew through our allotment for this title at AEC almost as soon as it was eligible for preorder. 

If you know a quantity you may be getting in-store and would like to list copies on the website, don't forget you can list this title or any of the inventory you currently have in-store on your website through Tuneportals.

If desired, you can go to the product page in Admin, open pricing and inventory and add the quantity you wish to take for preorders and check the box for "limit by quantity" under the preorder column on the right.  Note: after the street date, if you haven't removed the quantity, that item will still be for sale from you (not AEC) until your quantity is accurately adjusted.

Bulk inventory loading
If you decide you want to import your inventory in bulk, we encourage you to test the process with a few items and to get comfortable with the steps. 

Don't forget we have a WALKTHROUGH VIDEO and Step-by-Step instructions for you in the store manual.

There is a link to the Store Manual at the top left corner on every page of your Admin, and we are always updating the manual with additional training and more tutorials.

Panic Bump 📅

Miss Kitty's Lounge from Widespread Panic was due to arrive tomorrow (Friday, March 4), but we received word this week that the street date has been moved to May 20. If you have orders for this title, you may want to reach out to the customers to let them know of the change.
