Update #19

Build and Customs update

Good news! Saturday, Liz was able to bring enough tech back from China in her suitcase to build 100 purses, and those have already been built. Even better, though our big order is still stuck in customs for the next few days, we were able to order and receive additional tech, enough tech to make 500 more bags, which we will build all this week in our Chicago workshop. We are still waiting to hear from customs about when they will release our giant order, but are happy to be continuing our build.

Sincerely,

The Everpurse Team.

      Rose Vines, when did you order yours? I have yet to receive mine.

      Received my Everpurse today. Good job! I gave it as a gift to a friend and she's delighted with it.

      I should have waited for the Hustle bag. More charge and frequent updates and email responses! This should have been called the "forever purse" because it will be forever before we get it!

      With about 1 month to go we will be coming up on 1 year! It has taken almost a year to get this bag out. Clearly this is the worst kick starter project I've ever backed! Sparse communication from the company, people complaining and wanting their money back, vague and rehearsed answers to questions, this is absolutely insane. I have never seen anything like this. Oh and wait a 10% slap in the face discount on future orders. That just makes me laugh. I'm thinking if all these people wouldn't have backed this, this project wouldn't be successful anyway. The discount should be 50% off to original backers on the next future order! Anyway, I guess I'll be back on in September ranting again because I'm sure there won't be an update until mid to late September about another delay. What a joke! What a complete joke!

      Hi,
      I'm still waiting to receive my everpurse, why is it taking this long?

      I am with Alicson, please take care of your backers, we shelled out a lot of money in good faith a full year ago, September 2012, and when I first backed was so excited telling everyone about it. If these are outdated upon arrival, not worth carrying because of the battery or new phone compatibility, that word of mouth won't be so great. If you take better care of your backers, you will get a much better future outcome. Especially seeing that you now have direct competition.

      The Everpurse is better-looking and seems to be made of nicer-quality materials (the bag -- no comment on the internals/electronics) than the Hustle, and that might account for some of the difference in weight, but the Hustle holds a significantly larger charge -- which is an extremely important spec when it comes to a charging purse/bag. The full 2800 mAh of the Everpurse won't even charge my phone up to 75%. When will Everpurse upgrade its battery capacity to keep up with current phones/devices? -- Especially since we've been waiting this long and technology is moving along. This was not an inexpensive item to buy; for it to be obsolete upon arrival is...an expensive disappointment, and a waste. I hope you'll consider taking care of your first customers (Kickstarters and any others in that camp) so that you can have a continued and very successful life on the market. Good luck to all of us.

      I wanted this to work out but after months of broken promises and slow communication I'm going with the lighter bag that offers more charge: 2800 mAh & 368 grams for the everpurse vs 4250 mAh & 200 grams the hustle. I canceled my everpurse order and went with the hustle. Plus they reply to emails...(I'm disappointed and skeptical that I'll even get the everpurse refund)

      Also, are you shipping new orders from your website already? I looked and was able to add to cart with no mention of a delay in shipping. I thought backers came first? Thanks for your answers!

    11. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Danielle Moran on August 21, 2013

      2 comments, please read...
      1) You need to answer backers questions,like mine: Can you provide the list of the order they are shipping? Where is black fabric on that list? ... you upset backers by not communicating well.
      2) Looking at that hustle bag iamjohnison posted I am disappointed, was your idea not patented?
      Thanks for your response ...

      I feel for the excessive wait we should be able to update our purse whenever it is received at no cost.

      Liz et al: this is not a helpful update as it doesn't give the crucial piece of info...WHICH purses are being shipped and where do you stand with completing the rest of the orders?!?! I don't want to jump ship but you're leaving me very little choice.

      I, too, would like my money back and have initiated the process. I've backed several Kickstarts and this is the ONLY fail I've encountered. I have not lost faith in Kickstarter. I lost faith in this "entrepreneur".

      While I love the idea of your product and have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my order, I have decided to go with a different product and I would like to request a refund on the order. Please let me know how I can get a refund for my order (I have already e-mailed support@everpurse.com)

    21. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Selena Cozart on August 13, 2013

      This really feels like "The Boy Who Cried 'Wolf'". I do not believe this update. I do not believe that you are going to make good on this project. This is proving to be a case of "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is."

      Again, I would like to get a refund on my money. I am no longer interested in this purchase.

    22. Chococat.small

      Creator Lisa Kruse on August 13, 2013

      I honestly don't believe this update, it sounds like you know backers are annoyed and are trying to appease them. I have emailed thru your website, posted on facebook and messaged you here all requesting a refund but I have not heard anything back. I will be upgrading to a new iphone when one is released, anticipated date of Sept.10, and I have no interest in giving you more money and taking MORE time to upgrade my purse.

      Creator Linda Payne on August 13, 2013

      This is getting very old. I want to see a list of people who have received their purse, A& a REASONABLE time table for when I might receive my purse, I want the names & contact info of who is in charge of this fiasco. I plan to contact Kickstarter to initiate fraud charges, followed by whoever is necessary to get my money back. This is unacceptable.
