Shipping Confirmation

Hey guys!

I ordered my Glowforge last Saturday and I was wondering do they still send out shipping confirmation emails. I did receive a confirmation that they received my order, but I was reading through some of the topics here and some say they dont send shipping confirmations anymore but that I was a couple years ago. I havent seen any updated post on this topic is why I am asking. Thank you! And I know that I am being impatient! I’m just excited!

Sign up for FedEx and UPS’s delivery manager services, this has generally been the best way to determine when it ships.

Welcome to the club, @sheena2350. Not sure what most recent delivery protocol is, but from what I have read, their process seems to still generate just that right amount of tension to increase the wow factor when it all is delivered, setup and first prints are done.

Thank you for responding. I’m just so excited!

I haven’t gotten shipping information yet but as soon as I do, I def will!

I am talking about signing up now for those services, they are free! They will tell you pretty instantly when a package label has been printed for a shipment sent to your address. I generally see packages show up in there before many major retailers send the shipment confirmation.

Hi @sheena2350 and welcome!
I JUST went through this last month myself… here’s the problem: When you made your purchase, the email you got probably SAID you’ll get a shipping notification. (mine did)
BUT… there was never a notification from Glowforge for me, only from FedEx. @DaveL is correct, sign up with the shipping companies so they alert you.
You will likely need to be home to sign for it. (Or another adult signature)

Oh okay. I see. Thank you for responding. They’ve really got to do better with this. I did get all signed up for UPS and FedEx notices though. @krisgamble @DaveL

Bring someone to help you carry and at least an SUV. :grimacing:

I ordered and paid for mine on May 6 this year and I received an email on May 8 with my training link code and the tracking info from Glowforge. I guess we all have experienced something different.
