    ... when would it be likely to ship?

    I'm not sure if they'll have enough stock on the 18th or whether there will be a big backlog of orders.

    I'm in the UK and I'd like to get my hands on one of these before the beginning of June if possible (to take on holiday). I'm happy to pay for DHL or UPS shipping as it will still be cheaper than buying in the UK.

    Cheers.

    OP: I'll let you know since I've ordered one from Shoptemp

    12th May: Placed in order @ ~10pm, but want to pay via paypal so sent a Customer Support ticket for info
    13th May: (6:30am) Got reply from Customer support - followed instructions & paid for it by 6:40am
    14th May: (6:40am) Got payment Confirmation and my Order Status has changed to 'Pre-order' (they had sent Payment Confirmation @ ~2.17am same day)
    15th May : Status is still 'Pre-order', & I guess it still will be until official release date

    FYI - I've opted for the 'standard delivery' so even IF they ship it out on the 18th - I won't get it for 1-3 weeks (possibly) - but at least I'll be able to tell you when they actually ship it

    I know that there are preorders (like myself) who haven't had their stuff sent out yet, so I'm kind of hoping they take care of us first. [​IMG] Then again, who knows?

    Yeah, I hope that too. It'd be pretty bad for them if they did other orders first, before the early preorders.

    I think I read somewhere that the first 100 who preordered will be dealt with before the offical release date - while all others are likely to be filled out on/after the release date (I'm not expecting my status to change until on or after the 18th May)

    Are you sure about not being able to track your item elixirdream?

    I have been able to track mine on the second link to DHL, "Track by Reference"

    this is what you pay for
    you pay to track
    so you know where the item is and when to expect it
    when they say it is shipped on 13th

    didn't expect an item to take more than 1.5 days to be processed
    speechless
    but as expected.. the latest i should get the item is not later than monday

    EXPECT a guide on monday/tuesday on how to use free cheat.... (GBAtemp exclusive)

    As for tracking an item, you have to wait 2-3 days for it to go through the system.

    It's nothing to do with ShopTemp, it is down to the carriers, at least all is well now [​IMG]

    Jackthelad,
    my experience with others is never more than 24 hours
    i guess they should really use a better runner/carriers on this...
    not holding the item for this long...

    Well, DX used to have (and still has but not for flashcarts anymore) 2 weeks shipping, it al depends on how big the shop is and how many items they have to ship to different countries/addresses/...
