Special Notice:
All our puzzles are covered by Worldwide International Copyright, Patents and Applications. We will take the harshest legal action against anyone copying our puzzles. Claiming the maximum penalty allowed under the new China Patent and Copyright law which came into effect October 9th. 2009 of RMB 1,000,000.00 per infringement.
Free Air-shipping to anywhere in the world where there is a Post Office.
Please Note: that once you receive our auto-responder email acknowledging your payment, that means that your order is being processed and will be shipped promptly, you should receive it usually within two to three weeks. We only send out Tracking numbers if requested, as their main function is to prevent your local Post Man or others from stealing your puzzle.

This mainly applies to Italy where local theft of parcels has been quite common in the last two years. The Hong Kong Post Office only Guarantees delivery to your country but takes no responsibility for the safety of your local Postal delivery.

We are still receiving a lot of orders with incomplete addresses: Your Zip code and Country name must be clearly shown, if your parcel is returned to us due to incomplete / incorrect address we will charge you the second postage fee which in some case can be more than what you paid for your whole puzzle order.
Our Shopping cart is heavily subsidized and designed not to make a profit but hopefully just break even, so any waste like double shipping is not fair to the other puzzlers that are more careful, we hope that you understand.

I mentioned this last night. I'll probably buy the Trignis tonight. I also can't wait to see what the YouTube thing from Tony is all about. Of course I have no idea what it's about :wink:.

So did I. I happened to check my email literally 35 minutes after the date stamp on the newsletter. Sadly, the puzzle has apparently been available on mefferts at least six hours prior, judging by the earliest post that mentioned it.
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=19471&p=237323&hilit=vulcano#p237323
Not really an issue anymore, but due to a slow email problems in the past, I missed out on the original tiled Black Pyraminx Crystal in 2008 because it was already sold out before the newsletter even hit my inbox. Nabbed the white one immediately upon release and was very happy with it.

I too, grabbed a Vulcano immediately, and will also do the same when Oskar's Mosaic Cube releases.

I got an email saying that the Volcano is available due to me registering for it 9 1/2 hours after the general newsletter was sent out telling everyone to order it.

I only got the email this morning about it, even though I posted about it last night.

I too ordered this puzzle. I seriously cannot wait. Well done Shim and Meffert for producing such a beast of a puzzle. :D

I ordered mine yesterday (Sunday).

Did you guys get the confirmation email from Mefferts?
I didn't yet, and I'm afraid my order did not register properly.

Regards,
Paulo

Neither have I.

Unless you're in China, I doubt you were up at the same time as Uwe.

Shipping confirmations are bound to come slowly, as they probably are a little backed up at the moment :D

Once or twice in the past, I have not received confirmation email, but the packages still arrived. Usually, the confirmation email appears within minutes. Once upon a time when I did not recieve the email, several days later, I dug up the confirmation page from my firefox browser histrory (I couldn't remember whether or not I had included a particular puzzle within the order) and the page loaded, along with the pertinent message "DO NOT BOOKMARK OR RELOAD THIS PAGE OR YOUR ORDER MAY DOUBLE". Well, a minute or so later, the order confirmation showed up in my inbox with days old date stamp. From my experience, if the email message fails to reach your inbox, the order is still confirmed and you will receive your package regardless. I usually open my email in a separate browser tab to check that my inbox got it, before I close the order confirmation page. My "bottomless" inbox for Yahoo Premium account makes a really convenient record-keeping tool for virtually every piece of correspondence I've ever done online. I seriously don't have a clue how they manage to store it all. Yes, I am a digital packrat, and I've got two 500Gb external Mybook drives (the second to back up the first) full of junk to prove it. :lol:

Same for me. They had sometimes a communication problem between Paypal and the Meffert's server.
No reason to worry.
