Stellaris Launchpad shipping details

Recommended Posts

Watterott in Germany got some http://www.watterott...ad-EK-LM4F120XL I've just ordered two. B)

 

And now "Bestellstatus: Versandt" order status: shipped. If things run as usual I'll have them tomorrow.

That seems a bit off that resellers already have them. It makes a bit of a joke of pre-registering your interest and getting a promo price. I decided to do the right thing and only ordered one so that other people could get one too.

Hi guys -- I just wanted to answer some of your questions and give some clarification around the Stellaris LaunchPad shipping dates.

 

If you pre-ordered a LaunchPad (or two) through TI's eStore and your original shipment date was within the 2-4 week period -- You will get your first LaunchPad order within that 2-4 week period (some may be sooner).

 

If you submitted a LaunchPad pre-order through TI's eStore and the shipment date was listed as 2-6 weeks (generally, for orders placed in the last week and a half) - it will ship by very early November, within the stated 6 week period.

 

Since some people submitted several pre-orders, those additional packages will be shipped out at a later date (closer to 6 weeks after 9/25). TI is prioritizing all customers' first order before fulfilling any multiple orders.

 

If you're seeing a November date on your first (or only) Stellaris LaunchPad order- rest assured, I just spoke with our team and your kit(s) will be shipped within that original 2-4 week window.

 

Very sorry about the confusion.

-Mark

Yesterday, I've received two MSP430 Launchpads 10 days before the estimate(4 days from USA to Poland, pretty impressive), so I'm optimistic about Stellaris delivery :)

Where do you find this estimated ship date?, when I log into the TI shop, and looks at my orders, I don't find that info, but it is written: "Status: Waiting to ship", not sure what that means, if it is packed and ready, or if I have to wait even longer.

 

On another note, on monday, I was checking the status, and I saw that I had the button: "Paypal press here to pay" or something, so I freaked out, and thought I didn't complete the paypal order, so I did it, and after I have authorized the payment, it looked the same.. Checking for the ordernumber in my email, I found that I had authorized twize.. Damn!..

Wonder what will happen now, do I get the order twice? (wouldn't mind that), or will I have to pay twice?.. I tried to answer with the email in the orderconfirmation "sales@ti-estore.com" but that seems to be an unattended email, oh well.

It will be in the order status area. You are charged when the order ships. You may want to check authorization after it ships. Also, call them. Email takes time.
