One persons experience shouldn’t ruin this gb. There are FAR WORSE buys and cases out there and one little kira60 doesn’t dictate beaming’s ability to deliver quality. To be fair, we haven’t seen the exs, but kira60 went fine and I’m positive the exs gb will be just as good. Anyways, hopefully beaming doesn’t decide to chance this over one rotten egg, but understandable if he does :-[

Same sentiment here. Just because one person has an issue, should not deprive the the others off a great board. From the thread, it looks beamingrobot just wanted a yes/no answer to if issues like in the past would be overlooked. A yes/no answer was not provided (perhaps a long winded no). beamingrobot removed the participant.

I hope we can get moving from here...

Alright, this will probably be my final official update on this GB.

Given that we still have 10+ invoices unpaid (more for the numpad) and too much delay on this buy, I will initiate a full refund for everyone, covering all fees involved. You will receive your full amount back over the course of the next two days. Apologies if you really wanted the board, but we definitely cannot proceed without the required MOQ, and we've had far too many drop outs/unpaid invoices and all sorts of shenanigans to make this worth our time.

Please note that this is a joined decision between thesiscamper and myself, and this does not come lightly. We've deliberated over this and even met up over the weekend and talked about it.

Ah, thats sad to hear. Didn't get picked in the raffle but I assumed this should have no trouble with MOQs etc. given the limited quantity. Hopefully there is another run, the board is beautiful!

I know I repeat the last posts but I still want to say, that I’m quite sad this GB didn’t work out. Especially since the Kira60 was absolutely perfect!

But also a huge THANKS to beamingrobot and thesiscamper for doing these GBs and trying so hard to get these boards to us!!
Hoping for a reboot!

Anyone else not have their refund post to their account yet? Specifically, anyone else in US?

I had a heck of a time getting my bank to allow the initial transaction. Now I'm starting to worry they are blocking the refund.

I did not have issues for the refund, but I had to spend 30mins on the phone with my bank to let them charge it initially. I'd say call up the bank... And perhaps PM beaming to see if there's any transaction I'd you can use when you talk to the bank...

I am having this exact issue - I had to call my bank to allow me to pay it as well, but so far nothing posted to account.  I'm thinking maybe it just has a couple days of processing time, but I was starting to think the exact same thing as you - maybe they aren't allowing the refund?  That's weird though.

Alright so since I've received some emails about this, here's some info about refunds:

https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/payments-shipping-fulfilment/t/refunds-how-long-will-it-take-for-a-customer-to-get-their-money-back-357631

TL:DR: basically it takes 3-5 days for it to reach you, please do not attempt to chargeback before that.

Some explanation on why you should not chargeback asap:

1. Shopify has withheld the entire portion of this GB
2. They have deducted $ from my CC for every single refund we've processed, and all refunds have been processed
3. I now have a huge CC bill to pay at the end of the month, the funds were withheld due to chargebacks and stuff
4. I'd appreciate if people do not charge back first, it takes time for the refund to reach you. Suffice to say the money is on its way
5. Why does it take so long? I have no idea, based on other online shops I've used this seems to be par for the course since we're not huge fronts like Amazon etc

Hope this helps, some of you were literally just refunded like 10 hours ago

Also, in the future please note that due to things like timezone differences and stuff it's very likely that your bank has just received the instructions for the refund to occur today, I'm not sure how everyone's banks work but usually it takes more than 1 business day to process these kinds of transactions. However, if it's been a week and you still don't hear anything then please let me know!

No worries, I understand everyone would prefer that the refunds come in quick, but since this differs from bank to bank all I can say is give it a few days and it'll usually work out. If the funds still don't appear after a few business days then PM me and I'll get you some info to help facilitate things on your end, this applies to all :)

Banks suck. I hope beaming did not lose any personal funds in all this drama...

I guess a lot of folk s are thinking it, , maybe I'll say it aloud... are there any vendors that would accept cryptos ? BTC/ETH ? This would be a heck a lot faster...
(sorry if cryptos are frowned upon here...)

Got my refunded and still sad that this buy cannot happen. Would raffle winners who paid get priority if this buy returned? And those who didn't paid up in time or caused trouble be black listed?  :-[
