**This site is run by a human (👋) and I unfortunately need to manually "turn things off" on the website. A 11:59PM PST cut-off time is 3AM my time 😬

This means, yes, things will appear "buyable" on the website after the cut-off. That said, our system *does* allow discount codes to shut off automatically, so if you order after closing time, pre-order discount will not apply and cannot be retroactively added. Thank you so much for your understanding 🙏🏻

Why don't you just set a cut-off time to when you're awake??
I tried, but folks have been trained by many years of online shopping to assume cut-offs happen at midnight 😅
