I see, i got it wrong, its going to be "shipped" not delivered... My english is a mess.
Anyway, see doc? People should call, just in case.
...I dunno what caused the gale force hype but I predict the Amazon quake will trigger a carbon nanotube Tsunami the likes of which we have never seen before !
Oh yes, .....and AMEN !
Sorry for any issues anyone has had. First thing this morning when I went in to the phone sales manager with the SKUs for the white and black S400s and told him the source of all these (attempted ) purchases. The problem is that most of our sales come from the 5 state region they referenced and most people who buy from us from out of that region have made some prior purchase.
We are are large retailer on a regional scale but are still adapting to a wider customer base. This doesn't apply to these purchases but our "fraud department" is a single employee who looks over all the web orders and tries to verify all the info given. Just last week they shipped out a $1500 laptop and got burned. I think the phone sales department just aren't used to the type of demand these have caused and why most people wouldn't just go down the street and buy them anywhere. I even contacted our buyer for portable audio and he said the demand has been crazy!
I did talk to my boss and we will try and clarify our checkout process because I pointed out that we aren't clear that you enter the payment info on the same final screen that you review the order.
I think this is truly an issue of phone sales who is used to serving our traditional regional customers not knowing what to when demand comes from all over the country. I am going the use this feedback to push for a concrete policy regarding shipping out of our region. I am sorry if anyone feels like your time was wasted. I just thought I would share the great price with my fellow Head-Fiers but it seems to have exposed some gaping holes in my companies policies. I am going to check again on the orders in the morning and i will let you know anything I find out.
Thanks for following up Cajunky. It seems like the orders will get sorted out and shipped--except for rickdohc's order. Seeing as headfi has thrown a bunch of business to NFM, it would be a nice gesture for you guys to straighten things out and send rickdohc a free HA-S400. The guy ordered correctly, got his order cancelled mistakenly by NFM, called from *Panama*, got further bad info---in the meantime the price went up. It would be a nice gesture and generate some headfi goodwill to hook the guy up. Just my 2c.
ahahahahahahahaha rick you is hilarious!!! Priceless.
Yeppp he guud, hes "international" now. LoL You teach him man, schooled him real guud.
Sorry, random question..
Can anyone suggest a place to buy these in the U.K (online or off) No where i've seen posts to the UK (if they do it's more expensive than the headphones!)
Thanks guys :)
