Trying to order a Mini-Rig, they have sent me very lousy bank details, when I tell them I need SWIFT number and IBAN number for Internatinal transfer, they say the have no idea what these are.

I have doubt about trusting these people now.
North American banks don't use IBAN numbers. At least for mine, you concat the institution number, transit number and account number together, not necessarily in that order. That's not a BFL think, it's just an issue sending wires between Europe and NA. They should know what a SWIFT number is though, although that is sometimes labeled differently here. My bank calls the SWIFT number the BIC.

As far as shipping dates goes, they seem to be hitting their targets lately, they are saying 15 weeks on MR's, which puts you into August, so we'll see if they are accurate there.
They haven't hit any of the shipping targets yet... they're still shipping out January orders, haven't even touched the February orders.  All of the units have been shipped > 6 weeks after being ordered thus far.

You should be fine with the details provided by BFL. My payment went smoothly and bank's staff knew how to process it without SWIFT or IBAN.

There is no place like 127.0.0.1

^ This.

NA Banks don't use IBAN/SWIFT, they use a Clearing Code and/or Fedwire/ABA code.

Swift:  XXX
ABA / Routing: XXX
Account Name: XXX

I used it, and it took a few days for them to finally receive payment from me (paid Monday, went through Friday).  Not sure if a wire would be any faster though.  And Sonny kept my original order date as my place in line, not the date when he received the funds.  So really, considering the current backorder, there's no disadvantage I can think of to using Dwolla.

I received the same bank information as Turbor right before I wired $30k to BFL on March 13th, the receipt of which Sonny confirmed on March 14th.  Although I didn't need the SWIFT code, they did provide it to me.  ice_chill's claim that BFL says they don't know their bank's SWIFT number is a lie.

It wasn't a lie, I have received a follow up email from another person from their company with the SWIFT code, the first person that sent the email did not know it.

I will take you up on that bet, DT.  Absolutely. Order that single today and and show me a receipt of the order and we'll see on the 24th if you have one for free or not.

Ordered.  PM sent for receipt.

I may be the only person w/ an ordered Single which is hoping it arrives in >43 days. Smiley

I just ordered a few yesterday, was going to order 30 but decided to only order 23 for now and see, I don't want lock too much money for too long and waiting for a mini-rig 4 month wait list is too painful for me so the compromise was the singles, so hopefully after you get yours on the 24th of May or earlier I get my order by the 28th at the latest too hehe :p

We also have the largest number of good movies.  Well.. that and we basically own the entire movie industry for all intents and purposes.  Gotta expect some shit from the giant pile we produce.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Yes America does produce a giant pile of shit, but every now and then you get a nugget of gold.

lol why has this become America vs Britain ? I would love to see a BFL type company here in Britain, but we don't have one. I am much happier dealing with a company in USA then if it was a company in China.
