Re: Shipping

that's because of the huge amount of shows that are entered at the end of the month. the HO can only handle so much. oh well. I'm waiting on one myself.

Re: Shipping

Shows submitted on the last day of the month always ship slower because so many people submit that day and February had the most submitted EVER. Sometimes it's impossible to avoid submitting then but when ever possible submit shows before the last day! Some consultants close all their shows at the end of the month which makes the issue even bigger.

I tell my hosts that we need to close within 2-3 days of the show because people want their things. If I have an end of month show I strongly urge them to close by the day before the last day for quick shipping and I warn them that it could take 2 full weeks for anything submitted on the last day.

As someone else already said, give HO a break - they can only do so much.

Re: Shipping

They are only 5 business days behind. This happens every time there is a great consultant incentive. When 75% off the orders are submitted the last week of the month, this tends to happen.

Re: Shipping

I have made a point to leave the last 3 days of the month as non-show dates. I use those 3 days to close out any straggler parties, contacting next month's show host's and getting all my flyers and such for the following month ready.

And officially, HO's promise is to process orders within 5 business days. We're just so used to the quick shipping that waiting like this stinks.

Re: Shipping

It's a great trick to customer satisfaction: Under-promise and over-deliver. Like at Disneyland, when the sign says there's a 30 minute wait for the ride, but you actually get through in 15.
