March Shipping Updates!
Gold and Black Lightning Complete!
Our factory finished the first batch of lightning cables a few weeks ago (black and gold colors). These have made their way to our fulfillment facility and they have processed and shipped them! Yay! For the orders they were able to fulfill, you should receive a tracking number via email. You can track the status of this order at www.aftership.com
This should put us at about 40% shipped!!
Additional Color Manufacturing
We started with black and gold because they were the most ordered colors. The remaining colors are now in manufacturing. The factory has promised by March 14th to have the rest of the colors complete. We're a little skeptical based on their track record, but we'll remain optimistic and continue communicating with them day by day to keep them on track. If they finish them on March 14 as promised, they'll deliver them to our fulfillment center on that Monday, the 17th. Then they will be processed and will ship them that week. Shipping will take between 10-20 days to be delivered. You will each get an email with tracking for those orders via your kickstarter registered email address!
We're probably more anxious to get these cables out than you guys are to receive them! It's been a long time coming and it seems like we're constantly chasing supply chain management issues and excuses from manufacturers. We really appreciate your patience and understanding in the delays! We're still getting emails every day from thoughtful backers cheering us on. What an amazing community! <3!
As we mentioned in our previous update, we have enlisted the help of a second factory to produce additional lightning cables for us. We did this as a backup for the first factory's delays and to make sure we're producing these as quickly as possible and not getting strung along. Those cables will be complete on March 31st, and will then be ready for shipping at our fulfillment center. That is our backup plan for the tardiness of the first factory.
So, to recap! First factory has promised to have everything complete by March 14th. We will receive and ship those the following week. You'll get an email tracking number, check that tracking number at www.aftership.com !
