Purchase reciept? Shipping details?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Purchase reciept? Shipping details?

Hi there,

I ordered and paid for an Ultimaker 2 on October 23rd.

The Ultimaker website says my order is paid for and "ready" but I've recieved no official receipt, and no shpping details whatsoever.

I contacted sales initially, and was told it should ship by the end of last week, but I've still had no news.

I submitted a ticket for an update and have recieved nothing., and my most recent email to sales to follow up, has gone un answered.

I understand the lead times, and if more time is required to QC my order, then that's fine, I don't want it to be rushed, however, I need ot be informed of what's happening with my order.

Why is there no purchase reciept? an official email saying "Thanks for your order"

Customers should not be left guessing whether or not they're being ripped off.

Do I need to submit a dispute with paypal to get a refund for goods not delivered? This is what's going through my head right now.

All this anxiety could be alleviated with simple communication.

My order totals almost $3,000 AUD which is a significant amount of money, surely Ultimaker can understand that having such an amount on the line with not so much as a reciept to show for it, is going ot make people very nervous.

If someone could please, not only respond to this post, but also send me a purchase reciept, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

    Are you sure your confirmation e-mail didn't just end up in your junk folder? It has happened to me with e-mails from Ultimaker. Then again, since you can log in and check your order status I wouldn't worry, obviously it has gone through ok.

    Response from sales/support has been a bit sluggish lately because they have simply been swamped by the huge response to the UM2 release. According to the latest update from Sander it sounds like things are easing up (see link at the end).

    Sander from Ultimaker posted an outline a while ago which shows roughly when orders will ship and he just posted some good news letting us know that shipments are going out more frequently now. Please see this thread:

    Hi braddock,

    I had the same frustrations as you a see thread http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/2142-poor-customer-service/ so I know what youre going trough, but if your order is marked paid and shippement ready, there should be no problems as they've accepted your payment and your order is queued, and will hopefully be dispatched as per the shipping schedule http://umforum.ultim...ad-time-update/.

    I know that once I cooled down and got information on my order I realised that I had to cut the people at Ulitmaker some slack. They are a small group who are the victims of there own success and are currently swamped with orders. So here's hoping the UM2 lives up to the our expectations.

    I recieved word that my order will ship next week. I'm ok with delays if it ensures better quality control and packing, and if it means I'll have a better, hassle free experience with my U2 once I recieve it, then that's fine so long as communication is kept up.

    Thank you to the Ultimaker staff that have been keeping me informed, including Sander. Looking forward to printing soon!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
