I figured I would start a topic specifically for the Distributor as they will be around for a while. The goal being maybe a REP will monitor this thread; no guarantees.
As of today they are currently selling New Avalon 741's shipping out on November 20th. Personally I have had several orders processed with them and they have all gone smooth. My first was with Paypal; that option has disapeared but they still take credit card which is all I needed for my other orders.

The last one for November 6th shipping was a bit more difficult as they now require anyone outside the US to make the shipping arrangements; but they have been helpful in directing me in what I need to do on my end as I haven't done this before.

Here is the link to their website.

For international shipping do we have to provide any additional documents to sales@minerwarez.com and how do they look like?

It depends on your country, what I was doing was checking in with customs office in Canada to see what forms I need to get together to import something. Every country has different forms and rules for bringing items in; I'm pretty sure that's why they've changed the model for international shipping. You can also ask the shipping company you plan on using what you need, I've been speaking with FedEx, as that's how my other orders were shipped.

If they sent you an order previously, you could always ask their support line what forms they had to fill out to ship to you, just provide them with your order number. I have found lately they take 2-3 days to reply by email.

Something that makes a huge difference when importing into the US is the Harmonized Item shipping code. Depending on your country they might look at that as well. Miners are considered to be "Data Processing Machine, no terminal or display' and as such have much lower tariff than general electronics goods. If you have gotten miners direct from China in the past - look at the shippers and the codes are there.

Anyway - check to see if it matters when importing from US to your country.

I previously imported few miner PSUs from China to Bulgaria(EU) with DHL. All of the additional documents I had to provide for the customs clearance were arranged between me and the local office of DHL after they made a call to me to give me the options. That's why now I'm curious do I have to provide any additional document to minerwarez or this will be arranged between me and my local office of FedEx when my miners come to Bulgaria. Why do they want

BOL, customs paperwork or any other necessary documents

From what I've gathered so far, you would do just that. Arrange everything with your local FedEx office. Once they tell you all the forms required for shipping and you get them filled out, you have to send the shipping and clearance documents to Minerwarez through that email.

Yes that is what you need to declare for the item entering your country. That is what customs will look into as you pay tax and duty and items imported.

so @ andytranter if you are in Europe  and buy 2000 usd worth of gear this means they report the value at 2000 usd and you would need pay VAT

maybe 400 usd more.

Here is the link to their website.

https://minerwarez.com/

 My only problem with this company is I tried to buy their AV6 and asked if they would do a discount in bulk. Their reply was:

Quote
I recommend that you purchase the 12 package deal.  You receive (12) AvalonMiner 6, PSU's, and all accessories needed to mine.


We do not offer any other discounts except for this package.

 I responded and told them I do not need their PSU's as I have plenty on hand.

 Their reply was:

Quote
.......
Absolutely nothing. Therefore this led me to the conclusion they are trying to unload it all, and offer no return, no service, no warranty, and I have to take their package as it is. I get that, but if you are honestly trying to unload a shitton of old miners, don't you think any company in their right mind would budge? Who the hell wants a bunch of dead ass PSU's or miners especially when you have plenty of PSU's on hand?!?!?!

 Hell, at least when a person buys a used car they get to drive it!!! I am supposed to just buy a pallet of shit and pray??? Nope. Not for me.

 I dunno, but it left a horrible taste in my mouth and turned me off. Ill stick with Bitmain and all their BS over that.

 I am really trying to reason why Canaan is better, but I don't see it. AT ALL.

Yeah I could see that, I always try to get a deal anytime I'm buying something, and it does suck when you can't find any wiggle room. I looked at the used units, and didn't like the no warranty, all sales final bit, then I thought about it; and figured that's the same deal I would get on any used equipment. They probably got to the point where they are still making money on them and are looking to unload the equipment; but aren't worried if they do or not.

I only tried to deal with Bitmain a little, and they weren't really helpful, so I opted out of buying through them. For me the reliability was the biggest concern for my equipment so I just gathered the info form the forum and went with Canaan.

I've been pleased other than the inititial F**k around in September where they could have been much more transparent. Since then they've responded well and handled any issues I've had within a respectable amount of time. So I'm glad I went that route.

Back when Gigawatt was still MegaBigPower, they had at least one mining farm in Wenatchee somwhere - but I think their bigger farm(s) were on the other side of the river somewhere.

 The new Gigawatt farm IS on the other side of the river, near the East Wenatchee airport in an adjacent industrial park.

Giga-Watt has two sites listed on their timeline page, so I wonder if one of those is the old MegaBigPower, or if both of them are near the airport.

On Topic: I'm hoping that the new Avalon 14TH(est) miner is going to be offered by GigaWatt. If not I will buy one from Minerwarez and have them deliver it to GigaWatt.

What customs paper are you filling out and sending Minerwarez ?

The whole thing is so confusing, why are they making it more confusing when it's such a simple process to import a single device.....


In Australia we only fill out a declaration when the product arrives and submit it electronically.. Why are we supposed to send this form to Minerwarez ? The customs officer told me you only fill it out when the product arrives and write down the shipment ref nr for receipt of items. I don't see why we need to send this paper to the exporter it's not their business.

And for labeling ? In the requirements it is said for electronic goods you only need to type the product description in clear English, include origin country and HS code and that's it. So in my case I'm just supposed to send an A4 paper with description and originating country ? I told them to write it on the box and haven't got any reply. Seriously how hard could it be to just grab a pen and write 3 words instead I'm asked to send an international priority letter writing it for them. Also auspost said they don't have a label for importing. Just wtf is going on !!?Huh

 Interesting timeline - I wonder why they're talking about a Moses Lake location when they HAD been saying they were building up in East Wenatchee.

 (edit) - never mind, the Pangborn location would be their East Wenatchee spot - Pangborn airport IN East Wenatchee.

 Wish I'd noticed that a couple days ago, I was just down IN Moses Lake yesterday running errands, and the airport would have been a short side trip to check out (like the side trip I made to check out Toomin Brothers, but they understandably don't do tours for folks that aren't hosting there).

I can't speak to Australia, but your best bet is to go to your local FedEx or ups and tell them what you are trying to do. Then get all documents that they say you will need such as international shipping label, and a word document stating what is inside. Then as per the information on the product page for the miners email it to them.

That should atleast get it shipped and to Australia, not sure how your country handles duty and taxes, but whoever ships it for you should be able to sort it out.

Hope that helps.

That helps, thanks mate. It's just odd that I have to pay like $280 for a 16*8*9 inches box that weighs 11lbs international shipment.... With customs and VAT added itll come to 500 or 600 USD or something which is almost more than the price for the product itself. Plus the emissions, heat, noise. Absolute bullshit.

 We are seeing it in the US as well. Customs all over Bitmain or any miner company for that matter. UPS, FEDEX, DHL... dont make a fuck. They want cash when they deliver, and your social or fed tax id to even release it here in the US.

 Total Bullshit, I agree.

I received another set of 741s today from Minerwarez.  Unlike the prior batches, most of the boxes came pre-opened!  I can tell they were taped shut at one point, but someone very clearly opened most of them.

I haven't opened all of them yet, but those I did appear to be new units, with everything intact.  However it's a bit disconcerting to receive items that were clearly opened.

Did anyone else have this?

I emailed Minerwarez about it and they said:

Quote
It's routine for our technicians to open the AvalonMiner 741 when we receive from China to make sure the AUC3 cards have been flashed and are ready to go.

I'm unclear why half of mine were opened and half weren't.  But... that's okay if that's what it was.

Yeah mine arrived today and it was the same deal. I'm kinda glad they did, as the last couple that arrived some were missing cables, but I had enough kicking around that it didn't make a difference, just depleted all my spare parts.

I used to just chalk it up to Customs or something poking around to see that the package is what it is supposed to be.

Hi there,

I just responded to you in the other thread, try to avoid posting the same question on multiple threads.

Also this thread is more reserved solely for distributor issues or information.

I'll post more info into your other question know that I know the idle lights are on.

I ordered from the Nov 6 batch and the Nov 20 batch.  For the Nov 6 batch the label was created on Fri Nov 3 and picked up by FedEx ontime on Mon Nov 6.  My hosting location is in the same city so it was frustrating knowing my miners were likely just a few blocks away from where they needed to be and had to wait until Tues to be delivered.  But from Minerwarez they were completely ontime and by the book.

For my Nov 20 order I haven't received any contact yet, but I suspect it to be the same rodeo again this weekend of watching the tracking move only a few blocks over a 5 day period.

For two of my orders they actually shipped and delivered early.  I guess I was one of the first ones in the queue for that batch.

 Most of us are NOT in Australia.
 The rules and requirements for importing miners vary WIDELY from country to country.

 In the USA in particular, the rules get a LOT more stringent if you import more than $2500 or so in one shipment - and they get CHECKED a lot more carefully for enforcement.
