Help finding an item with Ikea online store
The first step you should take if you are having issues finding an item with Ikea is to check Ikea's stock for the availability of the product. The easiest way to check the product's availability is to check the page of the item you wish to buy through the stock check option.
Alternatively, you can check the Ikea stock by inputting the product name or article number from the catalog and then selecting a store. You will then search for the item in the store.
You will then see if the item is in stock or not. If it is in stock, go ahead and place an order.
If the item you are looking for is out of stock, you can ask Ikea to send you a text message or email to apprise you of the item's availability as soon as it is in stock. It is important to note that if the request is granted, you will receive the notifications for a maximum of 15 days.
If the item has not been restocked within the 15 day period, you will be notified that your request has expired. You will have to make another request to be notified of the item's availability.
