Hi, I'm in Italy.
The raspi has been shipped on 17 October.
Estimated delivery on 22 October.
No yet.
I sent an email to export@farnell.com to receive a tracking number (if possible) but no reply.
Do you know if they ship by mail outside UK?

I'm in Italy too. In July 2012 mine came from Farnell UK via the regular mail. No tracking. Neighbours got it the same way.

PS: same goes for RS, shipped with Deutsche Post without tracking.

Hi, i'm from Spain.

The raspi has been shipped on 17 October.
And today waiting. Send an email to Farnell and was told to wait until Tuesday, but instead try to send another notice.

I haven't luck. Waiting one RP of RS since july and now another of Farnell :cry:

The delivery of my Pi also took a bit longer than anticipated - shipped on 17th, arrived today.
When entering the address, I entered a company name as "Address 1" and the street name as "Address 2" . Unfortunately, company and street name were printed in a single line on the address label, and the street name was cut off right in the middle, so the mail service had to determine the correct address first.

I just received my Raspberry made ​​in UK with 512 MB ​​of RAM. I'm a little happier than yesterday. 8-)

For if it helps:

Order Number ORP0864XX.

Order on October 3, sent 17 and received in Spain on October 29.

You need to talk to your supplier. If you ordered from CPC I doubt they will treat you like this. You can see if they are in stock here:
http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/search/produ ... ku=SC12590 and look under "Availability" (surprise, surprise!)
They have been in stock at CPC since early December and Lucy in International Sales (InternationalSales@cpc.co.uk) is very helpful. If you really are having such issues try "CPC are here to answer questions" here:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 23&t=16105
I've been ordering from CPC with delivery to Spain for 5 years and their service is very good - my last order from them took only 2 days from ordering to receiving the parcel.

BTW I have a Pi being shipped tonight. I'll update this post with its progress.
Please excuse me, I need to go for a Pi....

My experience with CPC has been nothing like this. They have been delivering to me in Spain for about 5 years and the service is very good. The Pi is in stock and has been since early December. If you really do have issues, go to "CPC are here to answer questions" here:

FYI I have one being shipped out tonight. I'll update this post with its progress.

DUPLICATION!!!! Sorry, I didn't realise that all forum posts are moderated before they show in the discussion. I only just spotted the message which flashed up (too briefly!) when I sent the second of the above posts.

Delivery update: UPS tracking now says:
A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated.
Please excuse me, I need to go for a Pi....
