Be careful, PDX almost talked me into ordering another one yesterday.

Quoted from sd_tom:

I guess I don't understand how CA learns of the transaction.. who's selling me out?

Like I've said before, they get the info from the shipping company. They send them the shipping documents. Those docs describe the goods being delivered. In this case "pinball machine".

They will then ask you to provide a copy of the invoice as they don't actually know how much you paid for the pin.

#805 5 years ago

hmm..

Just send em here
I'll drive em in a trailer down $100 a shot no tax

Well that's what a fake Quickbooks invoice is for Didn't that NIB actually only cost about $1500?

You know those auditors would think we are crazy anyhow to pay 8k for a pinball machine, $1500, maybe?

Anyone know the best way to contact DP? Im trying to find out if my order made the deadline, left a note in the deposit form, also contacted them on the website contact form several days ago, no response at all.

Same here!.I added a note with order.I also added a note with paypal.I also emailed Phil.And i also called the USA # from facebook page.A lady picked up the phone,She took my info.And said,Someone would call me right back.

None of the above happened!

Should i be worried?.I am worried!.

I wouldn't be worried. Do you at least have a paypal receipt? If you really made a good faith effort and contacted them before the deadline, I would expect them to honor your order. They probably have a ton of stuff they are sorting through this week. Relax.

You could try this:

Dutch Pinball USA Inc.
Park Ridge Plaza
350 S. Northwest Hwy, Suite 300
Park Ridge, IL 60068
Phone +1 (847) 268 4968

Gotta agree with that...I think the DP guys want people to order their games and the last thing they want to do is piss off their customers. Things will get caught up...

I think they are overwhelmed with various aspects of the game. Getting the games ready for Expo was huge, now getting the games ready for Houston, New sales, existing customer questions, getting BOP 2.0 out, getting shirts out, etc, etc...they are busting at the seams.

I would send a note directly to Phil@dutchpinball.com or Barry@dutchpinball.com. to get to the guys directly. The phone number goes to a messaging service and they can't answer anything.

Ordered mine on 19th, waiting on response.

Well dudes - if nothing else, I have added your names to this list at 96 and 97.

The DP guys have been pretty dude about all kinds of stuff IMO. I bet you guys are ok.

#822 5 years ago

Thanks guys, I did order on the 19th my time a couple minutes before midnight, but the receipt shows October 20th, which I guess got converted to their time. I'll send them an email.

#823 5 years ago

Our local pinball op here at, Pinball Jones, has one on pre-order as well, might as well include her. Pretty awesome she is getting one for the arcade here!

#824 5 years ago

I wouldn't sweat any pre-order money with Dutch Pinball in the least. After spending a good amount of time with them I can tell you they are a stand up act, through and through. DP Abides!

Thanks Bemmet - she is now on the Achiever list.

I still have not received my confirmation from my order on Sunday. I have my PayPal reciept. I sent Phil an email the other day with no responce as of yet??? what gives?

#827 5 years ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

I got an automated email from them a couple minutes before the PayPal receipt. Maybe it got flagged as spam?

#828 5 years ago

Yeah i will note that as well... their own website sends confirmation out well before you even finish the paypal screens. Me thinks they need to spend a couple weeks sorting out their books / getting everybody on the mailing lists, tshirt orders sorted, etc.. That's the one thing they've been "small company amatuer-ish" about so far.

Yeah. I initially entered to make the first three payments, but didn't complete it through paypal. I went back and corrected it, then completed my payment through paypal. I ended up receiving two different confirmations from DP even though I never even complete the first one. I received only one confirmation from paypal (the correct one). And if I go to the DP order page, they have my information correct at this point.

So they do have some kinks to sort out, which isn't totally unexpected.

#830 5 years ago

Already having MAJOR PROBLEMS with their customer service?!? WOW! What kind of 2-bit crappy outfit are they running over there???? Imagine if JJP nah i'm just screwing with you guys. Wouldn't be worried at all after everything that was said during the expo. Seem to be stand up guys who are focused on taking care of their customers & putting out a great pin. Who else hosted a vip party for their pre-order customers? Look fwd to seeing the finished product. Hope everyone's expectations are exceeded!

Nah long trip home,
My buddy paid them cash Saturday and just got his email today.

Relax the games not due to ship for months, it's not a happy meal

Are you sure...??? Here's what it would look like if Stern built TBL....

Guessing I should've used the emoji as well. Thought the whole "nah i just screwing with you guys..." was enough.

#834 5 years ago

Over the line!

#835 5 years ago

I've tried 3 method of contacts so far, no response, I'm in for $4500 so far and all I simply would like to know is if I got in on time for the goodies. A yes or no email back would be fine with me.

#836 5 years ago

Im in.

As long as that $4500 was not disguised as a leather bag of white undies, you should be good to go. You didn't throw that off a bridge did you?

I am sure you are fine, as long as you got it in before the deadline, I am sure they will honor all the goodies...

BTW...my chick friend from Bakersfield has been advised of the arcade there that just opened up. She has a white russian waiting for you Bill.

DP will come through for you.

I am In!!! Saw her at The Chicago Expo and fell in love.

#841 5 years ago

I want I am the Walrus to play during attract. Is that weird? Did I make that weird?

p.s. RTR, the Vols are coming. You are entering a world of pain!

#842 5 years ago

Going to watch TBL for the first time tonight, beginning to end.

Gotta figure this thing out

#843 5 years ago

I did the same thing a couple weeks ago and ALMOST placed an order for the pin. The only thing that stopped me is all the posts about people having issues with pre orders from small companies. I'll be waiting until they are built and buy one at that point. Looks like it will be a fantastic pin!

Was feeling pretty confident at 27-0, but your new QB has got'em back in the game now!

I never saw this thread before. I'm not on Pinside as much as I used to be. I pre ordered September 27th.

Wish I could have made it to the VIP party at Expo.

Too many posts in this thread to catch up on. Guess I'll have to pay closer attention.
