Shipping...

Sorry everyone about not updating, the team went to China for some secret missions, and did not have any internet connection.  We would like to update that the Aumeos are shipping at the moment, and we even have one backer in Xiamen received the Aumeo!

Everyone would get their tracking details very soon.  The products are shipping for sure, but the notification could be a bit late because they have to wait for the carriers to pick up first.

We need a confirmation for some backers

During the address verification, our shipper has some feedbacks on addresses, which we fixed manually by googling and standardising information.  These mainly includes country / regions spelling, as well as putting fields into appropriate locations, for example, putting the US state to the state field instead of country field.  These are manual work and will take some time.

However, the shipper also raised some questionable countries / regions, which they advised us to get a confirmation on tax and other costs associated with shipping.  These countries / regions have rules that are not clear to outsiders like us. 

For over 90% of the backers, this is not an issue, and likely, they will get a tracking number from us as the next email.

Our current progress

Our shipper is currently checking the whole list for accuracy and doing the paperwork involved.  I hope there are more to share.  The things that the shipper is checking are as following:

1. For delivery companies that require phone number, check if a phone number is present and looks correct.

2. Check if the addresses are valid.

3. The export can be made to the country / region, or special requirements on battery etc.  This is especially important because the rules of devices with batteries changed recently.

After the checkings are done, they will package, print the labels, and send them out. It is so close to ship out, and I really really hope the next update will have the title "Aumeos are shipped!".

List compiling

It is a lot of work compiling the list of addresses for the shipping, as some backers require address changes, and many other special cases needed handling.  This list will be checked by our shipper for accuracy.  The end goal is near!
