Just asking if other Backers are having received the Kickstarter 'Survey' email to edit in their shipping address they would like their DMM sent to and are finding the email sent again but with a completely different address???

I have gone directly to the Kickstarter webpage and am finding my OLD address from way back when i supported the Neil Young HiDef Audio Player... the Pono.!

I'm on the Johnny B. Goode scheme so no biggie as delivery is March 2018. Just wondering if any others can't alter things to their desired shipping address under the Kickstarter Survey. 
(apologies if this has already been discussed.... don't have the time to read all the past posts)!

Kickstarter projects should have a graph of $ and number of backers so you can see the progress of interest in the item.

like this?:

@GabYoung92: That 'Got it!' is just a marker you can set and unset. Just click on the tick and your meter just got un-delivered ;-). It is for you to manage your projects.

Yep I tried to click it but it didn't flip it to unchecked.  Even restarted the browser just in case. 
Just logged into KS then and it is unchecked.  Not sure what happened there... Anyways got the survey a couple of days ago so should be fine. If not I'll have to go for a trip down to Sydney to the head office and lodge a complaint :P

Hi, did any of the EU backers receive PayPal invoices to pay VAT?

Not yet.
I'm guessing that they first have to be imported to the EU.

EDIT:
Dave just released an update about it on kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eevblog/eevblog-121gw-multimeter/posts/2071785

EDIT Mk.2:
Just received the VAT invoice for 53,20 AUD.

Thanks, somehow Paypal didn't bother to send me an email with invoice or even to push notification on my phone that I have unpaid invoices  |O, good that I read your message and checked paypal account  :palm:

First of all, congrats on the successfull kickstarter! (I know i'm late  :P)
I wish i could have backed, but at the moment i am lacking a credit card.

Is there already a timeframe when the meter will be available on your EEVBlog Amazon shop on Amazon UK? Will there be enough units in the second production run to make them available there?
I got a surprisingly good deal there for the BM235...

That is exactly why I could not do it either :/ (Do not want to start that topic over again though :) )

Probably at March 2018.
From the kickstarter page:
"For EU customers, that VAT invoice will come shortly. Welectron in Germany will be doing the re-shipping for us within the EU, and they will be stocking the meter in the EU after the campaign ends."

Sorry to ask an awkward question. I just received the meter (very nice BTW) in the UK sent by welectron. If the meter was sent from Germany and I have paid VAT for that... shouldn't I get a EU VAT invoice?
There was nothing in the box except the meter.

What's the current shipping status ?
I got a very last-minute Great Scott when someone droppped out ( #709) , and opted for the direct ship, take chances on VAT option, but haven't had a tracking no. yet - should I have ?

Just a shipping update.

As previously reported, all Australian units have shipped, and also all EU meters have now been shipped, so you should at least have tracking numbers for those.

Unfortunately the US meters have been delayed due to import delays with the expediting company. They are currently sitting in a dock in the US somewhere and we are trying to sort out clearance and shipping to the re-shipper in the US. Sorry for the delay, it was not anticipated. Hope to have this resolved ASAP.
The US re-shipper is also doing a few other countries for logistical reason, so if you have not received a tracking number yet then this is most likely the reason.

Please not that all this ONLY applies to the early Great Scott backers. Units for later backers have not been manufactured yet, so please check your backer level before asking why you haven't gotten shipment notification yet.

RegardsDave.

Antipodes reporting in, my early bird meter made it to Russia. :)
I was mentally preparing to deal with the customs BS, but surprisingly it went right through and landed at the post office without any issues.

Nice bit of kit, except... Dave, did you seriously just made a multimeter that takes 2 seconds to boot up?
