Ship Date

Hello Backers!

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!

Everpurse Google Hangout
Many of you are very antsy and excited to receive your Everpurse and are eager to learn more about why it has taken this long and what we have been up to. We are more than happy to share, which is why we are hosting our very first Google Hangout this Friday, May 31 at Noon CST. A Hangout is just a live Youtube video where we can interact with your questions and comments in real time. We’re excited to answer all of your questions; you can ask us absolutely anything about Everpurse. We can’t wait to Hangout with you!

Who: All our backers are welcome!
When: Friday, May 31 at 12pm - 12:30pm CST
Where: Google Hangout (click this link!)

You can send us your questions via twitter with the hashtag #EverpurseQA or post questions on the comments section of our Kickstarter and Facebook pages. We will answer them in a live video stream on the Google Hangout page at the link above.

Thanks for hanging in there, everyone - your Everpurse will be there before you know it!

- The Everpurse Team

      What's the current eta? I'm scheduled to move in less than 14 days and need to know if I should change my address. It'd be great to have it delivered before the move. ;)

      Jason, yes Everpurse works with iPhone 5. I can see that your order is currently for an iPhone 4 Everpurse. If you (or anyone else) would like help with any changes to your order, please email us directly at support@everpurse.com. Thanks!

    9. Creator Jason Walker on May 30, 2013

      In Update 4 you talked about iPhone 5 dock. and that you would contact before you ship to verify the dock type. Is this still an option? what is the plan for that?

    10. Creator Everpurse on May 30, 2013

      Hey Mamiko! No worries. Glad to take care of your address change :)
