It's a sh a me because they have been great, until man we had not lost a single package in almost two years.

 

"and then nothing for 5-10 days"

This is not very reassuring. I want my Alpha Dog it's so loooong to wait :(

What do you mean by "They usually show up the day you give up." ? (I'm french you know ;)

For what I understand, in this case I am willing to give up now :)

Thankfully it's still the exception, but it is frustrating to go through it.  Merci, monsieur, pour votre enterprise (oui, je parle un peu de Francais).

We're going to turn on Fedex this week and we've got good rates.  It's not yet clear if the notifications for the system will be more reliable, but I have verified the integration is working to get accurate shipping rates so we're getting closer.

 

For notifications, we use PayPal for all our payment processing and shipping, but the problem is if you register at www.mrspeakers.com with an email that is not in use at PayPal they won't send a shipping notice.  If you use a credit card and an email registered with PayPal they do send a notice.  I call that a bug, they say it's a feature, and that it won't be changed.  This may not change when we add Fedex, this is something we're working on.

 

I support this move fully.  I didn't complain before but figured I'd give you another data point after reading the last couple of pages.  USPS totally mishandled my AD delivery as well.  I sat around the house all day Saturday because tracking showed "out for delivery" at 8:00 am.  At 6:00 p.m. tracking changed to "available for pickup at your local post office," which entry was backdated/time stamped 3:00 p.m.  Of course, that office is closed Sunday.  I went to the post office first thing on Monday, and after searching in the back, USPS indicated that they couldn't locate my package, or any record of what happened to it.  I was instructed to "wait a day or two."  It was ultimately delivered late Monday afternoon.  I plan to avoid USPS and to pay extra to use private carriers at every opportunity going forward.

Merci monsieur too ;) Well, that's great. I suggest that from now on you're writing in French. (But I do not know if other headHifiers will agree?) :D

I think MOT prevents me from saying anything in relation to other products, so our French-speaking brethren (or anyone else) should answer.

Well, the thread has taken quite the turn. My German is a bit rusty and my French is nonexistent, so I'll just sit back until we return to normal.

We're just a couple votes away from 800.  Only a few days left of voting, and you can vote once a day.  Hope I'm forgiven for being a shill for this but I think we have a shot, and if we can break 1000 a very good shot.  Thanks for everyone who has supported us, and to Jude for kindly placing this on the home page, twice!
