Shipping Schedule

Hi Kickstarters!

Manufacturing is going very well, and we’re in full swing in production, ramping up to 300 Z Mice per day. By Saturday (April 29th) we will have made approximately 1700 fully tested and packaged Z’s, ready to ship.

We are shipping 4000 Z’s to 61 different countries. Of the 4000 units, 2000 of these will be air freighted to our US fulfilment centre, and the other 2000 air freighted direct to backers via our Hong Kong Warehouse.  

China has national holidays on Monday and Tuesday, so the shipment to the US will unfortunately be delayed a few days, and leave the factory on Wednesday or Thursday. The Z’s will take 5 to 10 days to reach Griffin, Georgia to be individually packaged and sent to all our North American (and nearby country) backers the week starting 15th May.

The other 2000 units will ship directly from Hong Kong, to our backers in other parts of the world. Based on current build rates, these will ship from the factory to Hong Kong around the 11th May, then individually shipped out to backers during the week of the 15th May.

The team have taken some photos of the production, which I’ve posted below….

 

 

 

 

 

 

We wish we could give you more exact dates, but really are now in the hands of the freight companies.  

Will touch base end of next week with another update. As always, we really appreciate your patience, and support.

We absolutely can’t wait for you to get your hands on The Z!  

Grant and the team.

      Keep in mind that customs are going to fuck us (non EEUU) backers. Try at least to find out what can you do to be sure that we have not many pains on that issue. See if declared goods, invoices, payments or whatever documentation should be attached to the shipping so we do not get stucked in customs (as others projects have had lot's of problems).

      So it seems, that software is not ready yet, yes @Grant?

    4. Michael Karban on

      @Grant - Software info would be good, software access would be even better.
      I'm in a similar position to @Jay.

      @Barty I would love to see that too, and maybe play with the software a bit early...
      I currently use a Logitech G700S and have around 60 different button functions mapped out over 7 different profiles. I'm definitely going to need some time to make the conversion from one mouse to another, and would love some time to do that before the mouse arrives.

      @Grant Odgers Thank you so much, I cannot wait for the mice! It's going to change the entire way I work and play, thank you again.

      @Grant - I see you read comments than. I will ask again here - can you show us how the software looks? Or maybe an Update releated to software only? I think in those past months you've made many improvements. You could (yes, again) make a video showing what new options are included, and how everything is set up. With shiping date around the corner it would be great to see that other, half - part of the product.

      @Jay, yes you, and all backers, are absolutely in the first shipments, Joe is correct, thanks @Joe :) @Backers, GT's purchased in a combo pack will be included in the shipment.

      @Jay From the description in the post, it sounds like you'll be getting your mouse. There are 4000 in total going out. 2000 will be shipped to North America and distributed to the surrounding area and 2000 will be shipped directly from Hong Kong. There's just over 3000 backers on this kickstarter and I don't know how many on the igg, but it's safe to say the first production run is intended for backers and the rest will be for retail distribution.

      So.... let's say I'm backer #2300, does that mean that I won't be getting my mice in this shipment?
      If so, when is the next shipment going out?

    13. Karl P. André Jr on

      Yes Great news but what about the people that ordered the Z+GT pack will our GT's ship along with the Z's?

      Now finger cross to not lose that package from China...

      Thanks for update - we are grateful for that

      Any software news?

    15. Cuong Trinh on

      Hopefully the shipping will be marked as gift, otherwise people in Europe have to pay around 60 EUR for custom.

      I also want to know the situation of GT & Z pack

    16. Philippe St-laurent on

      you guys should of partnered with Amazon for shipping. it would of been damn fast.

      This is great news. I'm looking forward to it since my current mouse is starting to be on the last legs of its life.
