For those who haven’t had hear from Pimax about deliveries or expected shipping dates, I’ve got good news!
I purchased the 5K+ by mid Febrary and received and email from Pimax instantly.
They stated shipment would be around 10th - 16th March
Well, that week I saw so far away in the future has become THIS week and I have been waiting until today Friday to further notice, but nothing happened.
The day isn’t over yet but quite honestly I no longer expect I can have an update.
So the good news are if you haven’t heard anything from Pimax don’t worry because receiving their notification for an expected shipment day has no effect neither.
That said, there is still room for hope.
1-. Their notification clearly uses the word ‘around’, meaning it could mean not this exact week but the next one instead. Or maybe another one in the future.
2-. More importantly, I bought an electric unicycle a couple years ago to another Chinese online manufacturer. They sent an expected shipment day same as Pimax, but I had no further notification during several weeks.
When I lost my hopes and started to think I lost my money, the unicycle arrived.
They sent it on the expected days without notificating me and took all those weeks to arrive when they were silent.
Maybe is the way Chinese companies works. We are used to western companies that informs us on every single step during the delivery process (shipment day, arrival day, tracking number, etc).
Chinese companies seems to inform you only once and altough everything goes as expected, in reality you have no clue if you will receive your item until unexpectecly a parcel arrives.
Will cross my fingers so this is the case too and my 5K+ has been already shipped.
