I had one that I submitted on the afternoon of the 28th..yesterday afternoon I went on to check the shipment status and it didn't even showing picking..but today I checked and it has already been shipped..so I am not sure why it never showed picking but it didn't
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.
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.
