Same here. Dave's update said we should have received a PayPal invoice today implying that the PayPal invoices went out before the Kickstarter update, but I haven't seen a PayPal invoice yet.

Haven't received my shipment notification yet (USA), but I'll just wait for it to come in for a few days, then ask for tracking if it doesn't show.

Outta luck!
Paypal does not allow guest checkout in the Netherlands |O
guess I will have to risk it with customs and possible have a hefty fee applied.

Before anyone asks, no I do not want a PayPal account and no, I will not give my phone number, as it is not essential to the process

Update coming on KS today.
All Great Scott US backers have now been shipped. If anyone in the US can post a photo of the packaging then we'd be curious to see it. Thanks.

Other remaining Great Scott backers also shipped, so that's all of them now  :phew:

Just for info, I have not received a shipping notification or tracking number. How long should I wait before querying this?
I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?

Given the number of Great Scott backers on KS comments saying they haven't received a tracking number, it seems I may interpreted wording wrongly from Kane that they had all been shipped and emails sent. Checking on that now, should hear back tomorrow.

US Great Scott backer 435, no tracking.

And Kickstarter doesn't seem the recognize the email I used to back the project, so this is the only way I can comment. :(

My BM235 is still cranking along, though!

Just received a fedex tracking number 30 mins ago as well  (from 121gwdonotreply@gmail.com)

Fedex can't find it though:

This tracking number cannot be found, please check the number or contact the sender.

Has to actually be scanned at a FedEx location to show up on their site, you probably got the email when the shipping invoice was created.

Ok, so is it safe to say US backers are receiving the meters with FedEx shipping?

Thank you, that’s. Great help.
Well I wouldn’t delete an email with that subject, md for search box works with the submit I get Kickstarter update #24, 22, and 21 from April to May. So maybe they are still sending them out.
What backer # are you?
Thanks again,

@Dave

I have indeed received the Paypal note for the EU VAT invoice. (I'm on the Johnny B. Goode batch.) However I can't seem to be able to pay via Paypal; the Australian (not Austrian) version allows me to pay without creating an account (which I of course *do* want), unfortunately after selecting my country and language, I'm taken by the balls and have to create an account... :wtf: screw them, I f*** hate that!  :--

Instead I could either pay the VAT by bank transfer (this is the term I'm used to with Digi-Key when not using a credit card), for which I'd need a bank account number (though I might have to pay more but I just don't care) or... I also use to pay the remaining taxes upon delivery to the driver, so if it's a possibility, so be it. Send cash inside an envelope? Why not. Name your price.

And thanks again for this work.

Great Scott!  US customer.  I have a Fedex tracking number and the unit is to be delivered Friday 5/18.  The package is actually in transit.

I didn't know how to reply to Dave's Kickstarter query re: having tracking numbers so here I am.

O c'mon Because you don't want to sign up with paypal Dave has to bend in seven ways to give a solution that suits you? Remember that this is already goodwill from Dave. If you don't like it just pay the mailman.

Having my 121GW since many months now. The issue with the range switch is getting worse. Anxiously awaiting the new range switch and shim. So far no news in my email or normal postal inbox. Any people in Europe received the new range switch and shim? I noticed some German 121GW users on this thread?

Where did I write Dave has to "bend"?  :palm: Does asking a question imply that the answer is Dave has to... damn'... I don't even follow your logic. If Dave doesn't agree, he can always say "no" which, if you read me again, is part of the (open) option list I gave — damn! why do I have to justify myself in the first place?

I for one just don't want to "bend" (to quote your terms) before Paypal — why are Australians allowed to pay without creating an account and Belgians not? Hmm?

I'm not *demanding* Dave to satisfy me and fix Paypal's lack of features for me, I'm just *asking (if)*, see the difference? Neither do I ask you to comment my reasons, for which you have absolutely no clue. So please stop criticizing me for asking.

Only the last part of your sentence is relevant:
If you don't like it just pay the mailman.
I suppose you're replying in Dave's behalf, right >:D ?

Tip: no need to think you've got to give lessons and ride your high horse. I don't criticize your choices (which I don't care) so don't criticize mine. Thanks for the info, by the way.
