How disappointing

Post by redmonaco »

It is when you receive a "your order is on its way" email but when you bit the track button it says "Your reference number could not be found"... :?

Usually, that just means that the carrier hasn't picked it up and scanned it yet. The label has been created and it is packaged to ship just waiting for pickup.
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

I’ve had this issue, and I was a bit concerned at first. It sometimes takes a little while for the DPD site to catch up, and the tracking isn’t always that accurate. I once tracked an item with DPD (on a Saturday) and the website said it was due for delivery on Monday. Five minutes later I got a text saying that my driver Jason would be delivering it between 1147 and 1247 on Saturday!

It will probably update when your package is in the depot.

This may be a delay in the collection of said order, that is, I have had a supplier state it's on its way but the courier has no record - turns out that they hadn't picked it up yet or, in another case, hadn't entered their system yet.

EDIT: We're all hot of the mark today :lol:

It takes a while for the carrier to update their system with your tracking number. Just give it 24 hours.

Yeah give it a day. That’s very normal indeed.

Not as disappointing as seeing all the dispatch notices being posted when you don't have one! I know it's only just been 24 hrs since I placed the order, but why can't delivery be instantaneous!!??

A quick timeline…
Ordered on the evening of the 6th
Notified by DHL it was in Cincinnati on the 8th. WOW!
Minneapolis by the 9th. WOW Only 400 miles to go.
expected delivery— Jan 18, WTF?!
I expect the postal service must be making the final leg. Or the pony express :problem:
Time is fleeting....happy hour, doubly so.

I ordered a c63 sealander on the 6th and it still hasn't dispatched yet. Should I be worried? This morning I almost ordered another c63 as it showed up.
