Don't know if I should feel lucky or raped but I preordered one. HAH Cool

Hmmm, can you elaborate on "All sales are final"? I read this exact same wording "somewhere"...
Didn't you say you'd guarantee a refund whenever a customer requests one?

Hi there, yes it's refundable but we had to put that sentence in order to try to avoid (or at least reduce) the speculators that buy the units only to resell them on ebay, it means that you won't be able to change shipping or billing address once the order is placed.

Hey!
I see, thanks for clarifying that.
Just one more question if I may. Did you order more Avalon ASIC IC's because with 10k you can only cover preorder batch #1 if I count correctly.

Purchasing Batch#2 when Batch#1 hasn't shipped yet and paying with a Bank Transfer, to a Swiss bank account without escrow makes me laugh and cry at the same time.

Anyone have recommendations on how to transfer funds online, from a credit card to a swiss bank, from inside Japan?

My USA Bank doesn't allow international transfers, and Western Union won't let me register without providing a USA billing address.

Maybe this is difficult for a reason..  Huh < -- To protect the ignorant --

I can see how using Bitcoins will make transfers easier..

What about MoneyGram? It allows you to pay with a credit card, but don't be surprised when they charge the cash advance rate.

Is batch 2 already sold out? The website says out of stock.

Lol, don't say something like that, feeling raped more and more. Wink

Well, I guess starting a new batch of preorders and going offline/silent shortly after with open questions from customers might be an answer in itself...

Let me post them again...

You brought in 100,000 sFR and bought 10k Avalon ASICs which would cover preorder batch #1. So, did you bring in more money to order more ICs (at least 40k ASICs by my calcs) to cover batch #2 (which suddenly has over 3x more stock than the 1st)? Without touching preorder money so you can refund customers?

Second, can we pay the wiretransfer in EUR?

Don't get me wrong, I believe in you (*bites tongue*) and plan on wiring the money today in any case but would feel much more confident if there where more transparency and you would answer these questions.

give them a break. After making a turnover of around 700.000 $ in a couple of hours, they probably opened a bottle of champagne (or Appenzeller) or two, and at this time just slowly start to creep out of their beds with heads like ballons.

I am in the same timezone as them and posted my questions the first time shortly after the preorder start.
Also, when I schedule the start of a preorder, especially for a high profile and sensitive item like this, I would factor in some time for customer questions and feedback.

Start was at 8 PM, I doubt they went to bed that early. Wink

In fact they should be right in their office hours right now and none of 'em is even online...
An answer to the question about EUR payments would be really nice because I need to wire the funds very soon now.

Yeah, more like this I could imagine. Wink

I prefer to buy real machines with real gigahashes .. now ..

Can you (all the People with preorders, in the 3rd row too) imagine what is happen when no (nada, zero) chip will be delivered to all the "mega-giga-hash-rig-supplier" ?
No one of this "mega-giga-hash-rig-supplier" can refund you!

Then it will be a little bit quiter then .. enjoy the hum of my real-existing-rig  Wink

Second, can we pay the wiretransfer in EUR?

Hi ashpooler,

I also ordered to and asked the same question, but in the reply it was missing.

I also asked because a missing confirmation mail for my order, and Christian wrote that they has a problem with the email server and by now I should have a copy... but nada.

...

1448h CET Update:

Yes I got the Email confirmation and the Info that EUR payments are accepted. Exchange rates from xe.com.

So now its a question of: No risk, no fun :-)

....

to be continued

just got a mail from them. EUR-payments are possible, they are using the exchange rates at http://www.xe.com/

At the moment I am waiting for a reply, what account has to be used for the payments.
As far as I know, you can not handle different currencies on the same account.

[EDIT] they replied, that the same account can be used. I will try (and hope the money will not disintegrate, neither at the bank nor at the company). Still wondering what benefit it gives me to pay in advance, while others can pay on delivery.

So please stop crying  Kiss

You should have posted your questions 2 days before, when they announced that there is a 2nd batch coming.  Wink
