Pricing, stock and lead times


We constantly review our prices to ensure our customers get the very best value.

For fast access to our most up-to-date pricing use our website, where prices are updated daily and you can compare current product prices side-by-side.

Some prices are valid for a limited period. These are clearly marked with icons that help you understand why we’ve reduced our prices.

If you’re planning to place an order that exceeds our highest price break, please use our online form to request a quotation with a target price.


Farnell holds stock on over 480,000 products in distribution centres located around the world.

Stock information is displayed on our website direct from our distribution centres, using cutting-edge technology. This technology displays real-time stock levels, so you can purchase with confidence.

All products showing stock are available for same day despatch. If you require a quantity that exceeds the available stocked product, the excess quantity will be placed on backorder and shipped to you as soon as we receive stock. In the unlikely event that a product is out of stock, our website will show ‘out of stock’.
