Axe-Fx III wait list: Let us know when you get notified...

4/6/18 waitlist.... so October for me...darn

It might be not that bad. Jan 29-31 waitlist positions took two and a half months to fulfill. Then Feb 1-5 were way faster - each day of waitlist took one business day. Now, we are at Feb 6 and that was date when they announced on maillist. It is taking 4th day now and by the end of 3rd day we were at noon time PST. Assuming that most people places waitlist requests by the end of day, that may take one more week for Feb 6. My position in line is Feb 16 and I do not think we are too far from each other since most people signed up at the end of Jan and around Feb 6. Of course that is just my assumption, but I think it is worth wait time.

I would have purchased it earlier but I was at work when the notification came. I left work early to complete the transaction at home. Will also leave work early on the day my AX FX III is supposed to arrive. The perks of owning your own business.

Didn't ship same day. I paid for 2 day air but delivery says Monday? It's Thursday and I'm pretty sure UPS delivers on the weekend. Hope this updates or I will most definitely ask for the shipping to be refunded appropriately.

I know how it feels :) I have got luthier made classic guitar in April. Now waiting for Axe III invitation (hopefully soon) and still deciding on FRFR for this (that will be bought right after Axe).

The shipping cutoff is 1:00 PM EDT. You placed your order at 1:17 PM EDT.

Still 2 day air should be Saturday at the latest. I would have paid the extra $50 for next day air had it been clear.

I got the invite at 1:10 PM ... They should indicate that it won't ship same day and let you know what 2 day air means by their definition cause right now it looks like 2 day air means 4 day air ... Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday.

I don't pay 2 day rates for 4 day delivery.

UPS charges extra for Saturday delivery. And on Sundays, UPS does not deliver at all. What 2 day delivery means is "2 business days delivery". And like someone has mentioned already, if you order after 1 PM, they ship next day - I think it is reasonable - they do not go to post office after each order being placed. UPS also has cutoff time by the way.

Fractal clearly says on their shop page

Our shipping carrier is UPS. Orders typically ship within 1 business day

I do not want to sound rude (really), but if you have ever ordered something that is how it works.

From my experience, two day air has always included Saturday delivery with UPS. I had read posts previously that units had shipped very quickly, so my expectation was different from what I actually experienced. I just want to make sure everyone is aware so their expectations are met. I realize my mistake now, I should have next day aired it. So that others do not experience, burning through a weekend waiting for a Monday delivery ...

IF YOU WANT YOUR UNIT WITHIN 2 DAYS, YOU MUST NEXT DAY AIR IT!!!!

Looks like you are taking in personal. You even have sent bigger message to me in private. I am not working for Fractal and waiting for my unit like everyone else here. So, don't do that again. Read UPS policies, read Fractal shipping policies, call them if you want. I wish I could speed it up for you, but that is beyond my skills :)
