Never Shipped: Songs Are Only Half of The Order You're Not Getting
« on: September 17, 2015, 10:56:43 AM »
Rant time.  :grandpa:

Seriously, How has this not shipped yet? 

Quote
Due to publisher restrictions, the books cannot be shipped before the release date.

That's fair. So, your ship date should have been the 15th. This should have been planned for months. She signed them awhile back, it was on Facebook. You work for an artist's store and not a huge artists. Times are probably p slow most of the time except release dates. That's your time to shine! So, shine dammit!

Maybe something happened where they shipped and we didn't get notified?  :shrug2:

I work for a company that fulfills and ships orders. It's not that hard. It can't be more than a few thousand orders. That's a few hours work if the product is in hand. Which I would assume it would be but it damn well should have been a week ago at least. Whatever warehouse/facility that is shipping them should have had the product, just waiting for that "go" on the 15th and out they go. I just don't get it. 

If there's some kind of issue, we need to be notified. That's how business works.

Even if we get shipping notifications the second I hit "post" this rant is still valid.

At least we got the album download. Maybe that's why they included it in the package. "We have no intentions of sending this to you near when it comes out so you'll probably want this download."

I do :wub: the album, though. And Jewel.  :jewelsmilie:

Ok, I think I'm done.

 :rofl2: :grandma:

The title is hysterical.  I just busted out laughing in the middle of a con call and wasn't on mute.  Totally worth it!

A notification of any issues would be nice....at this rate, the vinyl will be here first.

I just want to add that it's p irritating to see "order complete" on the jeweljk site when I know that isn't true :angry:

I got my Deluxe Ben Folds album on the day it was to be released.

Oh, and:



"Due to publisher restrictions, the books cannot be shipped before the release date"

I saw plenty of people on Twitter get the book a day early for the Barnes and Noble signing. 

Ugh.

A few days ago I figured that this is just the way it goes sometimes. Now I think something has gone really wrong here.

That makes it worth it for me, too! :lol:

And yeah, those Barnes & Noble people DID get their books early. :angry:

It's a Pre-order/Post-receive

Turns out, coming first is not always a good thing.  Ambiguously gay Michael Myers, is not going to cut it  :pumpkin:  Now, I'm going to have to yell at the kids to get off my lawn by myself.

Some packages are not worth it these days :grandma:

All that bitching and ranting and guess what showed up in my mailbox?  :blush:

It's here!  :rock:

This must have been what happened.  :facepalm:

Just got the "shipped" email a few minutes ago. According to the tracking info, I should get my order tomorrow or Saturday. Given how far out in the sticks I live, I never considered anything sooner than that, so...

I think this is one of the few occasions where me being a cheap bastard, and only ordering the CD, paid off.

I was lucky to get mine on release day in the UK, but it wasn't tied in with the book package, so I guess that's why. Glad that there seems to be movement and that everyone's orders are making progress though!

All the talk about the digital extras, Kindles, Google Play, iTunes, eBooks, eMusic, audiobooks, Audible samples, and the rest has given me a headache! Guess you can add me to the  :grandma: club! (or should that be  :grandpa:)

"Back in my day" - i.e. if this book had been released ten years ago - all the extra audio content for the book would have been on a CD and placed in the front of the book. Simples. How and why did things ever get so complicated?  :grandpa:

Right, time to head off and chill out with my new iPod.

I got the email that my order shipped earlier! See, being patient wins. :cool: :lol: But honestly though, if it had been like, 5 days to a week then I'd be annoyed. Two days is no big deal to me. :tongue2:

I just checked my USPS info and it says the package was shipped the 15th, so I guess Jewel's site was just slow emailing us for some reason. Mine should be here tomorrow, but we'll see. :)
