Im from the US, I’m trying to pre-order and they sent an email with a confirmation #, but no payment of $30 was required. Did anyone else get this notification? Are they sold out???March 13, 2019 at 4:48 am #9477

there is no pre-payment needed currently, if you read closely, as a bonus for pre-ordering you get some acessories worth 30$ on top of the device. Your payment information will be requested as soon as the shipments can be prepared.
You can check the status of your pre-order here: My Account/pre-orders. They are not sold out.March 13, 2019 at 9:46 am #9496
As said in the other thread, you don’t need to pay anything yet and the $30 is the value of free case and earphone given extra for everyone who pre-ordered. Payment info will be requested only when shipments are about to start.March 13, 2019 at 10:39 am #9500
What’s probably going on is that they’re gauging interest for the device before ramping up production, but in such a way that people who followed the Livermorium debacle don’t feel like they’re throwing money down a drain. I quite applaud this approach.March 13, 2019 at 11:04 am #9506
Yeah, it’s a great idea. I’ve never pre-ordered anything before this in my life because trust issues, but the way fxtec handles it convinced me.March 13, 2019 at 12:54 pm #9518
I’m with you guys on this, a very nice and decent approach to test the interest to know the scale of the production needed, and then not requesting the money before everything are ready for ordering.
I hope it does not mean that they only produce the pre-ordered numbers, as I’m sure that when we flash the devices in real life, we will make more people interested, and I for one could consider buying one or two as a spare also, but would like to have actually had the device in my hands before ordering additional specimens. And others might feel the same way.March 13, 2019 at 3:25 pm #9524
The pre-order process is spot on. I pre-ordered the other day because they didn’t ask anythin upfront. I wouldn’t of otherwise as they are a new company.
