eBay Preorder Question

Thu Jul 11, 2019 10:14 pm

Just curious what the group thinks .

I pre-ordered a 1:200 BA B744 in the special Landor Livery back in late March.

Original ad gave estimate of June delivery. It's now mid July
and the retailer cannot give a firm estimate on when my order
will ship, only saying hopefully August.

At what point could I contact Ebay and request a cancel/refund?

The longest I've ever waited for a Pre-ordered purchase is 4 months,
but I'll will surpass that record on 25 July

Suggestions?

Why don't you just call ebay or submit a ticket?

I usually avoid pre-ordering through Ebay for this reason.

If the model has be released to the other retailers I'd submit a ticket to Ebay

If not, Might just have to wait. Releases get delayed sometimes.

Is it the InFlight200 model? If so then that is why there is such a wait. InFlight is very, VERY inconsistent with their announcements and actual delivery. I pre order with a shop near me monthly and occasionally some are Inflight200 models. There are times I have waited over a year for the model to make it to me. Now I don't pre pay for them but when I make my monthly pickup of Gemini Jets I will occasionally be surprised by a plane I ordered months or even a year later finally making it.

Yes it's the InFlight 200 B744 Landor Livery model. I received an update yesterday from
the ebay retailer I purchased the model from saying the models were on their way and estimated
another couple weeks before it's shipped from his store. Sure it'll been worth the wait
when I unpack the model :)
