C.H.I.P.sters and Pocketeers!

The first batch of May rewards has left our warehouse in Hong Kong and is on its way to C.H.I.P.sters across the world!

This is happening FAST. Yesterday 2500 rewards were shipped. Tonight we'll ship another 2000. And many, many more will ship by the end of the week. If you've confirmed your address, that’s awesome! Your rewards will be shipping as soon we can get them out the door.

POCKETC.H.I.P. SPECIFICS - There are around 5,000 PocketC.H.I.P.s in the first batch, and more are coming off the manufacturing line every day. This means that if your reward includes a PocketC.H.I.P., it may go out in the first few weeks of June. If you’re not in this first batch, please be patient. 

Mitch, Felicity, Gus and Mr. Liu (factory rep) celebrate the first truck being loaded!

ADDRESS CONFIRMATIONS!

If you have not confirmed your shipping address, you should! C.H.I.P.sters still owed a Kickstarter reward should have received an address confirmation email from noreply@nextthing.co. If you don't see it, you can also log-in at track.getchip.com with the email you use for Kickstarter.

REMINDER: We cannot ship your Kickstarter reward until you confirm your address with our new shipping utility. We want your rewards to get to YOU! Don’t dawdle!

Right now, we're only confirming addresses and shipping to Kickstarter backers. If you're also a pre-order customer from getchip.com, those orders will be confirmed and shipped in the latter half of June. Stay tuned!

EMAIL > KICKSTARTER MESSAGES

If you need to contact us, email ahoyahoy@nextthing.co, rather than using Kickstarter as a third party.

There is an issue with the integration between ZenDesk, our customer service platform, and Kickstarter messages. We read and respond to every Kickstarter message, but have found that our responses through ZenDesk get lost instead of getting back to you. We are working to resolve the issue moving forward.

Again, for questions and support, email ahoyahoy@nextthing.co.

      Congratulations on the Baby! With that pic I think I'm going to go ahead and order a Pocket CHIP now and stop procrastinating LOL

      Your chiping utility is using the my old email address that i dont have access to any more even though all the updates and any kickstarter communications get to my new email address... no problem. Please advise how to resolve this.

      Fantastic! Thanks for getting the project out to ship - can't wait to get started on programming and projects with it.

      So glad you clarified the difference between reward shipments (and needing to confirm now) and getchip fulfillments later in June. Now nervous nellies like me can chillax and let you guys get on with it!

      Congrats on the kid!

      Should we expect a tracking number? I confirmed my address, but don't know if I'm in the first shipment or not.
