CPC No stock until end of month

Mon Feb 16, 2015 4:19 pm

The nice lady at CPC has just told my co-worker that he cannot have his Pi2 until the end of the month at the earliest as there was a fault on the last batch and "they all went back"

Is this true?

i think they are still in a shortage in production.

I ordered on 5 february my pi2 on italian RS site.
They took my money.
Then they started with "available on.."
- 9 february
- 16 february
- 23 february
- 2 march

so my order is still "in progress" and i have no idea WHEN or IF i'll get my Pi2

So maybe they really can't have Pi2 for a while

Allied electronics says 2 months as well. Got an order of 6. Says 1400 people have orders placed and waiting. Who knows how many they asked for each.



Have a feeling its going to be a while....

Deja vu all over again....

Best of luck to all those that are waiting. As was noted in another thread, the factory is now making as many Pis per day as the original "stretch goal" for total sales.

The MCMElectronics website claims that they have stock.

I little over a week ago I placed an order for a second Pi and was told out of stock until 21st Feb. But 3 days later I got the despatched email.

just to say, RS is now talking about 30 march.
They took my money on 5th february.
And on 5th february was IN STOCK (on the site), not "order"

Probably it is my fault, but i don't think that's the right way of making business.

Absolutely not true, no! (And their website's currently showing them as being in stock.) I'm just off to have a word with our contact there and to find out why on earth someone would have been saying that.

so why your PARTNER rs-components reports availability for 30/march?
That's exactly one month more than "absolutely not true, no!"

Because demand has been stratospheric (see the sales figures we released today), and they're hedging; if you ask around here you'll find that people who have been quoted a month until delivery have typically only been waiting less than a week. We're making more than 20k a day, and that's still not quite enough for the current demand: my best guess is that everybody who's using an original Pi as a media centre has bought a new one.

(PS - if you're polite, you'll find that life will treat you far more kindly.)

Edited to add - just looked through your old posts to find out what the problem was - I think you need to get back in touch with RS and ask them what's happened to your order, because you absolutely shouldn't have to have waited this long if you ordered back then. There was a screwup on the day we launched when they said they had stock they didn't have; I hope that doesn't mean that they've lost some of the orders placed on that day. Can you let us know when you've checked back with them?

Maybe my order of 5 february doesn't know this.
(PS - if you're polite, you'll find that life will treat you far more kindly.)
i really didn't intend to be rude and i'm sorry if you got it in that way, i just do not love ostentation of "all is perfect" when it's clear it's not the case.

I don't even think "polite" is taking order (and money) and then change availability date every 2 days. Really, it's not a matter of money or a matter of "i want my new toy", since my raspberry 1 works like a charm. It's a matter of "work" and "customer care".
So, if, as you say - and i have no reason to doubt - production is perfect and every day are produced X raspis, what's the reason to move availability date forward and back? these are official partners, not ebay resellers..

Btw, really, no problem at all and sorry if i hurted you (lol)

No probs. RS definitely had some screwups when we launched (and I note that their site crashed a few times) - like I said, I really think you need to get in touch with them and ask what's up with your order.

I wrote them. It seems that magically exactly after my mail pi arrived in the british RS, so it should be dispatched today and arrive within 3-4 days.
I have the bad sensation that i could remain with no pi until 2025 if i did not write them :)

Btw, i'm happy for Raspberry community if this is only a problem of mine and noone waited that long..
With my karma, i can expect a couple of package losses and a meteor on the courier, so i expect it within a month :)

Edit to add: Obviously i used magic phrase "head of raspberry comms is on my side" to receive attention :D

With so many people saying back in stock I bugged Allied Electronics again. They state the Vendor Says they will not have any in stock till March 26th. Can someone call them and ask what there deal is?

Thanks in advance :)

order one - then you'll get it when they do - or try somewhere else
if you keep waiting until they have stock then you'll be always a the back of the queue

Yes I did as well - if they don't come in a few days I will have to go on the warpath again. Didn't I post this reply yesterday, must have forgotten to submit...

This.

We recently (last week) ordered a Pi2 from Farnell, quoted delivery was some weeks away.

Got it today.

Unless you get in the queue you will always be at the back of it.

Just for laughs, I asked for 100 RPi2 from CPC - OK. 1000? Partially OK, 436 in stock according to their system. So looks like I am going to be lucky and get them tomorrow or Friday.
