Shipping schedule and some news

40 likes

Dear friends, 

here we are today with the shipping schedule. 

We told you yesterday we would have published next week, but since new information has already emerged we'd like to share it with you.

We're going to receive the PCBs from our suppliers around March 6th.

We will start shipping on March 10th.

We are doing our best to get everything done as soon as possible, but as some you may already know we're close to the Chinese New Year, and the PCBs on which we're going to mount the components are from China. We have asked the fastest delivery that our suppliers can offer during this period and this is the best we can.

The good news is that the shipping will only happen in one batch. In other words, we will be able to ship everything in a couple of weeks or maybe less.

Pre-orders

After we will have shipped all the items to our Kickstarter backers - i.e. you :) - we will start shipping to those who have pre-ordered through our shop.

According to our schedule we will start shipping pre-ordered items in the first week of April - eventually in the last week of March if all shippings to you, Kickstarter backers, are completed in only one week.

Survey

Since we have your attention we take this chance to remind you about the survey.

Please, if you haven't yet, take right now 5 minutes of your time to fill the survey.

To answer the survey, just visit our Kickstarter campaign and click on the button named "View pledge". You will see another page. Then, just click on Survey.

We're saying this since the 3% of backers haven't answered the survey yet.

Also, if you have to edit your address, if possible do it right now.

At the end of February we will close the survey, and you won't be able anymore to edit it.

The questions that you'll find inside the survey regard information that our courier needs to deliver the item, such as your address and your phone number.

Those answers are really necessary for the courier.

Also, if your reward tier includes a UDOO X86 Advanced or a UDOO X86 Ultra you will find, as you may remember, questions about the upgrade. Of course in case you don't want an upgraded board, just fill those blanks with a /

Please, don't forget to fill the survey if you haven't.

In case you have questions, just send us a message and we'll take care of your problem.

NOTA BENE: do not use PO, i.e. post office, as delivery address. 

NOTA BENE: while filling the survey beware to only use letters of the English alphabet. In other words, no Cyrillic, no Korean, no Japanese, no Chinese etc. This is because the courier won't be able to understand the address if it's written in a non-English alphabet.

If you already filled the survey with a non-English alphabet don't panic: send us the answers to the survey written in English alphabet and we'll figure it out.

Information on the shipping

As soon as the courier will receive the item you will receive the tracking number.

The courier is UPS.

Everything is shipped from Italy.

The end of a journey is the beginning of another one

Although this is not the end of this journey we are increasingly closer to it.

But don't you worry: this won't be our last update on Kickstarter.

We will publish another update at the beginning of the shippings and a final one at the end of the shippings.

But even after that, there are still plenty of news to come for UDOO X86.

First of all, we are going to Embedded World 2017, to be held in March 14 to 16, Nuremberg. It is a faire dedicated to the industrial field, quite different from Maker Faire. There we will have a UDOO booth with some demos made with UDOO boards. 

This Autumn, as always, we will take part in Maker Faire Rome. We know it's very early for a news like this, but this year we'd love to see you all. Wouldn't be amazing?

But of course, you don't need to take an airplane to follow UDOO.

You can follow us on social media!

This is our accounts: 

Of course we also got a website: UDOO.org

On the website you'll soon find the documentation of UDOO X86.

Finally, if you liked our updates and videos you will be glad to know that there are more to come in the future.

Also, as we told you during the campaign, we are going to release a special accessory for UDOO X86: an accessory that adds 2 extra Gigabit Ethernet ports. This way you'll have a total of 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports onboard! Just a note: at the moment we are not able to give you an estimate of when this item will be available in our shop.

Also, in our shop there are already many accessories for UDOO X86 available to pre-order, like CPU fans, SSDs, UDOO Blu and UDOO Blu Sense.

We wish you a happy day

      @Norman: On changing your shipping address, I recommend contacting UDOO via their ticket system - http://www.udoo.org/customer-care/

      UDOO,

      I wanted to change my shipping address, will there be extra charges for new shipping?

      Thanks and cheers,

      Norman

      @Nick: eMMC is internal part of UDOO X86 and so can't be shipped separately.

    5. Nick Matson on

      For those of us that upgraded to the 32GB eMMC, will it be shipping along with the UDOO on March 10th?

    6. Johan on

      UDOO Creater,
      Please mark and declare the price to less then $40 with the shipping, and maybe also mark as `part´s` and not as ready product?
      If it come to pay import taxes it would be not to munch
      We all looking forward to deliver the `test` boards.
      Regards

      Johan

      My experience with UPS has also been "expensive". Even though the total amount of the invoice is well below the legal tax-free limit of a private import established by Customs (here in Mexico 300 USD), UPS always find a way to charge you additional fees, even for imports below 100 USD, while the other mayor couriers seem to respect the legal tax-free limit.

      Not only may UPS charge you import VAT but they also might charge for a brokerage fee, which I have had to pay in the past. You will also have to pay the correct amount in cash upon receipt or card over the phone prior to delivery.

      @ creator: you have no legal requirement to declare the retail price or what ever people have backed to customs, we are not customers who are buying a product, Kickstarters is not a shop! You can simply declare the cost of the material to customs which would be legal.

      @Lloyd Andrew A. Gabi: we cannot lie to the customs.
      @Hai Ninh Quang: you can change your shipping address by editing the survey. The address is the only editable part of the survey.

    11. Lloyd Andrew A. Gabi on

      @Creator,
      Is it possible to declare the price to $40 or less in shipping via UPS?

      @ Mike: Well, Karl has a point though. My experience with UPS is also not the best and compared to other shipping companies the service I received was not good. They indeed asked me to pay, while other companies that delivered other, more expensive perks from other campaigns, did not ask for any money.

      Anyway though, I'm looking forward to the UDOO board and I'm sure the UDOO team had their reasons to pick UPS.

      @Karl - don't complain to UDoo and UPS for charging the required import duty fees your country requires!!! Nobody held a gun to your head saying you HAD to back this or any other project. Complain to your government for charging highway robbery fees...

      hi there, plz how can I change the shipping address?

      Lovely, shipping by UPS. Backers better have their chequebooks ready for their outrageous fees they like to charge on delivery.
