I think he means that only the person that received the invite can buy the FM9. The invite is not transferable. So if a friend of his received an invite, only that friend can buy (an pay) for the FM9. Then he would buy the FM9 from that friend, but he would lose the warranty, since the warranty would be on his friends name.

For the love of Christ- grow a pair and go to the ATM and give him the cake or your credit card info or whatever it takes to get the bloody unit.
Or don’t and risk probably buying a marked-up one on reverb by Christmas anyway.
I would be surprised to hear for sure that Fractal really care who’s name is on the card that pays.
I mean seriously- what if someone’s life partner wants to use his card to purchase the FM9 as a manaverssary gift for his guy who got an invite.
Or a wealthy mom for her spoiled teenage kid or whatever the scenario.
A valid Fractal warranty seems even more overrated then Neil Schon.
Haha- just joking Neil if your waiting too- your a friggin beast.

Ha! No worries. It’s awesome that you’ve taken this tracking on…thank you!!! I’m at 5:47pm on the waitlist (8/27). With the progress made today and last week, I’m now more hopeful that I’ll see an invite by the end of next week…maybe sooner if they’ve got decent inventory. Cheers!
Well, I certainly hope you get yours soon because my waitlist time is 8/27 @ 5:48 pm EDT. 😂😂😂. It certainly does seem like waitlist times are moving ahead at a more rapid pace. Really do hope everyone gets theirs as soon as practical. Kudos to Fractal for doing everything they can to accommodate everyone. 👍

August 27th @ 4:32pm Central time. I've been trying to talk myself out of getting it since I have an AxeIII and an FM3. No invite yet.

Sure.

The "friend" received the invite. Not knowing his name, "he" would need to pay for the FM9 through his account with FAS. The buddy (the person who inquired about possibly moving up his name in the waitlist) whom the friend had offered the FM9 to would then need to pay the friend for the FM9.

Understand?
Not necessarily true. For reasons that don't matter, when I bought my Axe III, I used a friend's PayPal. FAS just asked for a confirmation from him via phone that nothing shady was going on, since they have a policy of not shipping to a different address than the one connected to the card paying for the unit.
And like someone else said, what if your spouse or SO wanted to buy it for you as a gift, but make the sale in your name, for the warranty. I don't see any reason FAS wouldn't allow that.

I think what I was trying to describe was a clarification of my statement, not a judgment for or against how a person could buy a product. And personally, I don't know how someone could use someone else's PayPal account. I mean, would you hand out your private account info, even to a friend? Nope. I'm not tempted into doing anything of the sort.

Even if FAS or your spouse was cool with it. I wouldn't reveal that kind of info to anyone. Your spouse would need to be exceptionally trustworthy with your money if you let her buy something with your PayPal account info, which may be the case with some families.

However, someone outside the family could be tempted. No one's perfect, and we could all find ourselves in trouble if we let anyone's account info slip. Gonna give that a wide, no thanks, and walk...

You said he'd have to pay for it himself. I gave you an example of where that wasn't true. (Unless I misunderstood who you meant be "he" and "buddy." I thought I did, but whatever. It's really not that big of a deal.)

He didn't. :tearsofjoy: smh

This will be my first purchase of fractal stuff... I still haven't made up my mind, to go with the FM3 or the FM9 :( I use a Sansamp flyrig rk5 with limited options live while at home, I have a bunch of pedals and a Mesa mrk5 that I hate to take out because of weight and other complications such as cable faults and other etc.. please can someone out there convince me to take a decision.

The number of switches on the FM9 make this an easy choice for you. You are accustomed to a footswitch for the Mesa, plus pedals, and even the FlyRig has two more switching options than the FM3. Granted, the FM3 is much more flexible than the hardwired switches of the FlyRig, so it’s not a one to one comparison, but the FM9’s switching capabilities are more like what you’re familiar with in a single layout and (my opinion here) why would you go with less if something is not forcing you to do that? Order the FM9… you’ll thank me later.

I bought an FM3, my first FAS device, and learned that I like Ultra Res IRs, I like Ultra High quality reverbs, I like a good amount of effects available to me at any one time, and I like more than 3 footswitches. If the FM9 were available a year ago, I would have been better off buying that. I think if you get the FM3, there's a good chance you'll later wish you'd gone for the FM9. If you buy the FM9 now, I don't think you'll later wish you'd bought the FM3.

Direct answer: Personally, I would not. The warranty is not transferable, even if you paid for the item somehow. The offer to your friend would need for him to pay for the FM9, then you pay him, and have the FM9 shipped to you. You'd still be SOL regards the warranty.

can you please explain this : "The offer to your friend would need for him to pay for the FM9, then you pay him"

Sure.

I think there was some misconstrued interpretation of the data from the first quotation. If we look closely: "The offer to your friend would need for him to pay for the FM9, then you pay him, and have the FM9 shipped to you."

The friend would need to pay for the FM9. Then the person who the friend offered the FM9 to, to pay the friend.

I can see how that might get mixed up in interpretation. I sometimes have difficulty myself comprehending things like cheep, cheap, or Jeep. Just don't get me started on something like "truck."
