Problems with buying Pi 3 online

So I made a purchase with the site Pimoroni this past Sunday. They have yet to ship my Pi 3. I was wondering if anyone had any issues with that site on getting Pi's. At this point I would not mind just getting a refund so I can just buy it locally now that it is back in stock.

Pimoroni usually send a despatch notice by email, and their service is very quick - usually arrives next day if you are in UK. They are currently showing Pi3 in stock so it shouldn't be long.

But the first point of contact should be Pimoroni themselves.

Bought mine via farnell and cpc, it was delayed originally because they didn't have a noobs SD but changed the order to a blank SD and it came in a couple of days.

I had sent an email from their page about a day ago, but what got their attention was a post on their forums. Someone else had been complaining about the same problem. I joined the forums and stated I had not heard anything on the shipping. Within 5 minutes I get an email saying it has shipped.

Sunday as in Sunday 6th?

Three days isn't exactly a very long to be waiting for dispatch and delivery. The PI specific online stores are likely to be pretty small operations and with all the PI 3 demand no doubt swamped with orders so things may take little longer than usual. Have you tried calling them?

I did not see a number listed to call. Everything is okay now. They sent an email about it shipping. Now I just need to get my cases ordered.
