Pre-Order Status Update Thread

more_vert
The following post provides information about Drop Studio products that are in “pre-order” status, i.e. products that are not currently shipping from our warehouse because they’re still being manufactured.  We're trying this approach to consolidate the information that was previously scattered across many individual discussion posts. We'll evaluate how this works for a bit and then assess the best path forward. Without further ado... Audiophile

My GMK Pixel sets have been stuck on "reserved for shipment" for a while. Any idea when I can expect them to actually ship since I've seen alot of people already having them in hand?
Hey, I think you're probably in the same boat as the other user below and should have received an email, but there's an issue with the Decorations kit showing as short shipped that we're looking into. Working to resolve it as quickly as possible.
I'm going to be spending the next week or two trying to track down the details on every outstanding product so I can reboot this update thread and start fresh. Keep pinging me until then if an update is missing please.

Any Updates DROP + Mito GMK Pixel Custom Keycap Set? The person who maintaining updates gone again???????????????
Hold tight. I'll look into it in the morning.
Sorry, lost power and internet due to a snow storm. I suspect this might have something to do with the decorations kit, but I'm still confirming. edit: confirmed there was an issue with missing Decoration kits. Getting more asap and should ship yours and a few others within the next few weeks.

I do know that it can be frustrating although there are two options - Cancellation is one option. 2nd Option is let it ride and give the DROP team to do what they can to get the key caps shipped when everything is in order. Once it’s shipped and in your hands then you can be gleefully happy that you have the coolest set of key caps.. OR cancel it and you’ll never get your hands on them.. So two different perspective to look at it..
@Poopio @ataggart @isAnxiety @JacksonHale @aaronnn Sorry about that. The person maintaining updates departed a couple weeks ago and ownership of this post got missed in the shuffle. As mentioned by @Nasri1089, Pixel is completed in Germany and is awaiting scheduling for shipment to our warehouse. Will update with an ETA once I have confirmation that it's shipped.
Coming off as a dick doesn't help much either and won't get you what you want. The fact that you think Drop is responsible for GMK delaying keycaps is ridiculous. Yes, they could of maybe gave you and update sooner but that doesn't change the fact that GMK is the one ultimately responsible. If Drop had the keycaps in the warehouse and it wasn't moving then I could see putting the blame on them. Not to mention that they actually offer you a option to cancel a GB order which is usually never the case with any other vendors. Not sure what else you expect. Quit being unreasonable.

I would expect a company to keep track of their product and keep their customers up to date and informed. They said the product would be shipped to us on November 29th and did not update is until over a week later that not only did the product not ship it isn't even ready or in the country and they still haven't provided any ETA when it will ship to customers only that their DC will receive it some time mid December. You can call me out all you would like but Drop's job is coordinate with the factory and deliver a product. They had at least a month's notice that the product had not left Germany on November 1st as scheduled there's not an excuse for their lack of communication.

Back-to-school season is here—and we want to score top marks. So, we’ve launched our Best-in-Class Sale to do just that. Here’s what’s to come: 1. A huge selection of products are on-sale right now.

Cart Feature Request
Hello, I wanted to request a new cart feature for the website: wishlists. I know that the website already has the ability to save content that you can find later in your profile, but it only resolves to an entire set of content, not individual purchasable items. Once purchased, the item would be removed from the wishlist unless it's added back. For example, I'm building up both my SA Carbon and SA Oblivion sets. There's an absurd number of kits (awesome!), and my sets are each maybe 1/3 complete. I want to dump all the things I still need into a wishlist so I can easily pick and choose without having to remember what I already have, etc. Especially useful for aiming at free shipping. Anyway, I have lusted after this feature several times now, so I figured it was time to ask. Thank you! Morbii

Anyone else having issues with lack of support from customer service about missing item?
Hello everyone, I am here because I do not know what else I can do at this point. For a little background, I purchased a headset back when Drop had their competing Amazon Prime Day sale. It was my first purchase ever from this company but I saw a good deal mentioned by a YouTuber and made the jump to purchase on sale. The product was definitely not cheap ($419) but in comparison to the cost before sale ($529), I thought it would be worth it. Fast forward a few days, I get a notification that shipment from carrier (UPS) would be delayed. I did not think much of it but followed up with it and update stated delivery scheduled to Friday, two days later than what was originally scheduled. Friday comes but no package. What's more concerning is that when I checked my email, Drop sent me something saying it was delivered Thursday. Apparently, the carrier changed from UPS to USPS without any explanation or notification as to why. Concerned, I asked my neighbors and leasing office if anything...
