Has anyone had issues with Glowforge taking your money for an in stock item and then not shipping it. I have been trying to contact via: email and phone and I am not getting a response.
No, I have always received my orders.
Never had that happen to me.
Always received everything I’ve ordered from GF, but since the pandemic things have slowed down in fulfillment and transit. However that seems to be the case for most companies.
I have always gotten my orders. This is the first time. I needed a crumb tray, I see they are in stock so I order it before Christmas. They were really quick at taking my money and I have not gotten it yet. I never order anything that is out of stock. I have sent several emails and left voice mail messages trying to find out why. Nobody will respond.
You aren’t being unrealistic in your frustration. Always received what I ordered but the response times are all over the map. Products are eventually provided though much slower than we should expect. Doesn’t seem to be a regular problem with in-stock items not shipping. There has always been a disconnect between GF Support and their shipping or repair partners.
When you log into your account and go to your orders - do you see your order - does it show an estimated shipping date?
No dates. It says unfulfilled.
I would think there may have been a problem with the order or there has been a delay. When you sent an email, did you get an autoreply with a ticket? If not, I would check spam / junk email. I would be careful with sending more than one email - instead, respond to the ticket email. Otherwise, if you open multiple tickets, it causes delays with getting a response/resolution to the issue.
As Glowforge doesn’t actually stock and supply anything - it’s all outsourced - communication has always been a problem. I’ve often had stuff show up with no update online or email notification - including initial delivery of my machine. Sometimes, however, I get confirmation in hours and status updates as well. It’s just inconsistent.
That said, I doubt the supplier has stacks of crumb trays sitting on shelves as spares. It’s pretty much a “life of the machine” component, not sure what could cause someone to need a new one except for intentionally stomping on the provided one in frustration.
…or not the expected outcome from throwing it on the BBQ.
We’re so sorry for the delay in shipping your order! I’m looking into this and will reach out with more information.
