We shouldn't demonize all private resellers of the miners (like for example on ebay). At the end, it is a matter of trust and integrity.

In my country however, it is almost impossible to buy from ebay.com as fees to Europe are a killer. Ebay.co.uk has no fees, but ridiculous prices, something like x4 or x5. Local reseller websites are full of scammers. So for me for example only the official vendor is the choice. Which reminds me that Bitmain hasn't released anything in more than a week (usually they drop something every week).

Don't worry. They ship every couple of weeks with new equipment. They always wait for the prices of bitcoin to drop before releasing.

Well I sent my US wire transfer last week, and yet today my order says "expired and unpaid" ...  Anyone else in the same boat?  I uploaded my proof of transfer last week as well.  I opened a ticket late last week and still no response from Bitmain. Sigh....

They are out of the office until the 26th....

On a side note, anyone getting their s9s in yet? If so from which batch are your purchases that are arriving now? I have 19 coming in in March and plan on renting a new space to accommodate growth. Don’t want to pay for February rent if I don’t have to worry about them coming early.

My last couple of wires went through and were confirmed within 1-2 days. However, they are on a company Holiday (per sales rep) until January 30th.

I received my latest shipment ~3-4 weeks early.

Last time I ordered I received my shipment a week early, but the power supplies came a few days late, rendering the miners useless for all of that extra time I had. That was disappointing, lol.

Darn... I wonder why mine are still unconfirmed then even with the proof uploaded.  I've never ordered through US wire before, only BCH which obviously gets confirmed almost instantly.  Of course they're on holidays too lol... They should not have released a batch right before and then just close shop for a week with many customers wondering what's going on.

They’re not on holiday, they’re offsite at some weeklong event. They are still working just thin staffed on premesis. From the sounds of it I may have to start my lease a couple weeks early just in case, since I sourced my power supplies, breakout boards, and cabling elsewhere.

we should indeed demonize all private resellers, they add nothing to the world, they are a damn plague that make something fair to something unfair

A private reseller is taking an unit from somebody that wants it.

Your status is still unpaid? mine changed to paying 3 days after sending the wire, still no paid status....

Yup... says unpaid and expired.   Very angry at Bitmain for not responding or making my shipment as paid status.  We're not talking a few dollars here and to leave me hanging like this is frustrating!!!!!!!!

Didn't have the BCH on me at the time, if you select the wire payment you get a 7 day window to pay (i still made sure to wire the money within 2 days) rather than 30 minutes you get with BCH.

Does Bitmain constantly have new batches of Antminer S9's ?

It looks like they are sold out and the scalpers have doubled and tripled prices from what I can see.

Sorry to ask what I am sure has been answered but that is a huge list of comments to sift through.


Would like to purchase direct from Bitmain........no trouble shipping to Canada?

Thanks all.

We've had a good experience with ordering from the Bitmain website. We have shipped it to our data center in Georgia and Iceland. No issues so far. My only complaint with the site is that it is very slow (not optimized for the peak ordering traffic). Also, the payment terms can be standardized. We always need to prepare for any new batch. There is no consistency in terms of what currency is being accepted. Sometimes its BCH only. Sometimes its wire and BCH.

But overall, we are happy so far. We wish we could take delivery in China and arrange our own shipping. It would work out so much cheaper. But that's not possible as of now.

They are obviously making money on the shipping part
