It’s been a few weeks since our last update, and we know you’re eager to find out if we’re any closer to shipping. Based on our progress, we expect shipping to begin on or before June 15th!
The Final Countdown
While we are very excited to begin shipping, we want you to understand that the possibility for further delays - while small - still exists. For example, we are still working through a few final testing documentation issues, and while we don’t expect any problems, there is always a chance. Other unforeseen issues may arise as well. Last week we were waiting on the US Customs department to release thousands of electronic components stuck at the FedEx facility in Memphis, TN because they didn’t know how to categorize the parts. (They’ve never seen anything like this before!) It’s a unique challenge to work with never-before-seen products.
We’re also sourcing a unique white color for our charging mats. In order to maintain our high standard of quality, we are using the most fire-resistant plastic. Unfortunately, the plastic that we need only comes in off-white, so we had to create our own pigment in order to make sure that the charging mat will be as beautiful as your Everpurse!
Growing Our Team
We have had phenomenal support from you, our backers, and we are working overtime to make sure you get your Everpurse as soon as possible. We have also grown our team to ensure shipping and delivery goes smoothly. New team members include two Customer Support Specialists, two Technology Engineers and a VP of Finance. It’s amazing to work with such dedicated people with epic drive and talent!
