I called DHL again today for order 15X and still nothing. Ordered and paid for on September 23, 2012.

What was the point of ordering early, paying quickly and taking the risk??



You don't have to pay 6 grand like batch 3 orders  Cheesy

Look at it this way. your batch 1 order is worth 6-10k delivered or not, right here right now. a day 1 BFL order still isn't worth jack shit. a day 1 bASIC order would have you out a grand. You're in an awesome position, embrace it.

I understand what you are saying. It's not an awesome position if I don't have it mining. I placed orders with all three companies and got refunds from the other two early on. So I thought I was sitting pretty with my early order Avalon. I figured since I had an early order and paid quickly I would be getting it sooner than others with orders numbers 800+. What's the excuse for shipping orders in this manner?

Have you emailed Yifu? My early batch 1 order was MIA too and I emailed him and did get a response within a day.

I still haven't received my units or a tracking number but he did confirm my units were going out.

What is your order number? I have emailed him, private messaged him and opened a support ticket. I emailed him numerous times. All correspondence has been polite. No response from him at all.

What else can I do?

Well now im getting worried I picked the default DHL for batch #2. The only thing I was thinking about was trying to make the payment as fast as I can so I can be one of the early batch 2 owner and signed in as a guest but I did get an email from both avalon and from 4 emails from walletbit...

Well, if it makes you feel any better the amount of BTC it will earn in its very first DAY of operation will pay for the duty fees 10x over.

Batch 1 and Batch 2 customers are sitting pretty either way. Not so sure about batch 3 though. It all depends on how much new hashing power is added to the network.

Congratulations. What was your order Number? Did you have to pay duties to DHL? Did DHL call you before delivering?

Thank you.

order # 200000333

not sure if that's one of the very first or not...order was placed Oct 12 2012

I did have to pay $50.91 to DHL, well specifically to Loomis Express as they were the company that did the actual delivery. I believe DHL hands off all packages intended for Canada to Loomis Express.

No, nobody called me before delivery. They just showed up. Unfortunately I was not home when they attempted the first delivery so I had to go and pick it up myself from one of their local warehouses which belonged to yet another company (Medex Shipping or something like that). Quite a hassle but hey in the end it's worth it. For batch 2 I chose EMS.

I'm hoping mine shows up in the next week (Order # 20000015x). My emails and pm's continue to go unanswered though.

All the best to my fellow Avalon batch #1 Canadians!

Hmm  yeah I heard they don't like to be bothered by such silly things as answering e-mails. I'm kidding of course as I have no expereince with their customer serivice, but yeah I think you should get yours next week.

Btw guys if you're on btcguild join the Canadian team Smiley This way we can be good at something else other than hockey Smiley..

*if* and hopefully *when* I receive my batch 2 product, I will join this team. Although hockey is the most wonderful sport played on ice, *( GO OILERS!!! )*  it would indeed be nice to "branch out" into other endeavors...  Wink



in the meantime, I'm sticking with coinlab, (totally unsolicited endorsement incoming) - yes, it's 5% PPS, but has extremely low stales, and I'm fully expecting that they will honour their commitment to pay $2.5 per GH/s per day, until my "loyalty points"* are expended. ((once it becomes less profitable to mine with GPU of course))

*note: loyalty points are no longer available to be earned, only redeemed.

The bad news with batch 2 is that the Avalon team said they need a break before they start working on or shipping it (batch 2 units).

That is bad news. Or at least, unfortunate news. Still better than the "news" coming from the other camp...

The "good" news is that with the track record of the Avalon team, the term "a break" means a week or two, whereas with the track record of the "other" team, the term "a break" would mean 4-6 weeks, and at the end of 6 weeks, another 4 to 6 weeks... repeat indefinitely.

 Cheesy Oh sick burn on BFL!

Yeah but all that wait will be worthwhile because the BFL chips are powered by magic! They will be able to hash all the bitcoins!

Now back to the serious business of bitcoins, I'd say that they deserve the break.

1 of 2 delivered... left HK on Friday, showed up Tuesday late afternoon. Customs/Duty was $43

order # was under 200, but my units had been held back due to a shipping problem.  Sad

From the looks of things this unit was in use for awhile, or run in a very dusty environment as cables in airflow had a pretty good buildup of fine dust..

but bottom line: I have it, it works! Smiley

Did you ever get a tracking number?
Also how many days did it take from the time of shipping to when it showed up at the door.

Thanks

At first I thought I did not, but apparently ngzhang e-mailed me the DHL tracking number but sadly it ended up being flagged by gmail as spam (go figure) so I did not notice it until much much longer after.

So those of you who are waiting please check your spam boxes and mail filters..you just may have something from the avalon team.

allinvain,

May I ask if you could please check something on the DHL tracking number for your received Avalon shipment?-- How many days between the first "shipment information received" event and the next tracking event (presumably package pick-up)?
