@Leon Brans We did not alter any invoice, every packaged shipped on the correct invoice value.

Review from Kickstarter
Paket is in transit, but now at our border control because the packet is shipped with a value of 10$. Now I have to give them a bill etc. And pay the taxes.
Why you cannot ship it from the beginning with the correct value ? Then I can directly pay the f*** taxes.
Sorry for that

@Benoit Leizorovici. My knife literally just arrived (like 20min ago) after being in transit for almost a month, hopefully yours isn't far behind.

@David Dickson. I will appreciate anyone has a question about tracking no or follow up about his parcel send us an email. By that way, we can create a support ticket. That helps us to follow up with a customer easily. Besides that, finding information by just posting a comment is so difficult for us. Thank you.

So today, after waiting patiently, i received 1 knife instead of 2. Are they send separately? Or did you just send me 1 knife.
I paid for 2 knives so i want 2 knives.

Just received my knives and I must say they are simply outstanding and just one of the best in my collection. Yes there has been a massive delay but after using the knives it was well worth the wait.

Review from Kickstarter
@Benoit Leizorovici I am wondering why you are judging us for the problem happened via the third party. Are we running Swiss Post? We post over %95 of the orders and we provided tracking no. We closely monitor every tracking no, and we are doing our best to archive all the barriers. First of all, we sign a contract with a fulfillment and they used a forwarder company. As soon as we noticed the problem, we asked the fulfillment center to not ship the rest of orders from Swiss Post and we switched to FedEx. If we could not take any action, you had a right to say those words, but we took the action, and we tried to return all the parcels and reship by FedEx but it was so late and this was the reason we come and apology of everyone. So far over %55 of backers received their package and the rest will receive their orders by the next week. I am not saying we are not responsible for the problems, but I am saying it is not the way you point us with those words. Thank you.

Phunczak@mdsfirm.com What kind of scam is it that provide over 165 customers tracking numbers and over 69 customers received their orders. Also, you can check your tracking no before pointing us a scam. We are respecting everyone, working hard to fulfill the duties we have and expect that not pre judge from our lovely backers. We understand you are frustrated from our forwarder delay. We are deeply sorry about this. Everyone got tracking no will receive their orders very soon. Also, we will ship the rest people who ordered Luxury Knives and Everyday Cutting board this week.

This is starting to smell like a scam. Any more delays and I'm going to speak to a lawyer. We don't do business like this in this country.

@J.J. ten Hoopen Thank you. We are tracking all the packages to figure out the delay on the tracking no for each country. Sofar 48 packages arrived at destination base of the parcel tracking no. And we believe the real no is more than this. I will be appreciate the people received their packages but tracking no still not shows the receive confirmation inform us their receiving by sending an email because it helps us to calculate the time of delay and response to those waiting for their package. Regards, Farzan.

@Benoit,Shailesh I’m waiting for 3 weeks now and haven’t received the knives. According to the tracking info they’re in Spain now. Guess they’ll arrive this week.
Vie Belles
Review from Kickstarter
@Shailesh Jain @Benoit Leizorovici Our product shipped on the time we announced the tracking no. As our fulfillment center choose the wrong forwarder, it caused a long shipping time with inaccurate tracking info. We do not have any extra knowledge beyond the tracking info. We do not know the exact location of any parcel. As our fulfillment center informed us the day first, it has a delay of 4 to 5 days in updating tracking info. We are so sorry for any inconvenience happened in shipping. Hopefully, you will receive your parcel very soon. Thank you.

@Curtis PloBer I think this week they will ship your orders, as my last conversation with Fulfillment and SGS agency. As soon as I get your FedEx tracking no I will update you.
All those backers that have the cutting board or Luxury knives on their orders hopefully will ship their orders this week.

Hi, i have Supported Classic Chefs Knive and Cutting Board. But I don't get any shipping information. Is this correct ?

Review from Kickstarter
Hmmm let’s see backer number 36, shipping notification on one of two orders shows shipment ready 3/24, electronic notification received 3/29. It’s 4/9 and still no updates on shipping. My order MUST be on the proverbial slow boat from China..... as I said before I understand Delays, but do not promise one thing and not deliver on that promise.
Vie Belles
Review from Kickstarter
@Shailesh Jain The delay happened from choosing the wrong forwarder by our fulfillment center partner in China. We stopped using that forwarder when we notified by our backers on March 28. Unfortunately, we could not stop the packages were shipped, and it affects all 145 orders that shipped before March 28. For those, we changed our forwarder to FedEx, mostly received their orders. As this was our first time using fulfillment center for Kickstarter project we did not expect this kind of poor services. These cause lots of trouble on our side and a big headache for our backers. We are deeply sorry for this problem, again our products are backed by a lifetime warranty. If it was not fit your expectation, we will refund your money. Hopefully, you will receive your order very soon. Thank you for all your support.

I have not received my knives as of yet may I kindly request you to pls provide me with a tracking number as it shows the knives have left from China and are in Spain. And have not moved from Spain. Firstly why from China are the knives manufactured in China and secondly why are they in Spain.
Vie Belles
Review from Kickstarter
@John M Allen, we shipped the product as we mentioned. But the shipping delay happened of third party forwarder. We stoped it as soon as we noticed these issue. I hope you understand our situation. Hopefully, when you use our knives all of these will be forgotten and wish you enjoy using it for long time.

Review from Kickstarter
@daniel labardee Everything is clear from our side, delay happened and some of them out of our box. We did not release that our inspection will take long time than normal. We just missed this part in our time line to give a proper time for that. It makes a gab in our promised time. We charged you CA$30 for your 2 knives that covers all shipping, handling, packaging, fulfilment charge. You always complaining about our shipping charge, but we never get any profit out of it, and we paid from our pocket to make these products comes to the market. By the way, we added Knife blade cover, polishing towel on each knives that retail value is over $15 for each knife. As we mentioned before, please wait to receive your knives, and if you are not satisfied of the quality we will return your CA$105 pledge amount on our 2 knives. Thank you.

"Vie Belles 4-time creator on March 5
@daniel Labardee $30 Canadian is a shipping, handling and packaging charge for 2 knives from Canada to USA. daniel labardee on March 5
Bulk shipping discount? $30 Canadian is a discount for 2 knives? or are you just trying to recoup money off of up-charging shipping and finding the lowest bidder?" weird... I never realized your shipping went from Canada, to China, to Spain, back to Canada, only to then go to USA. NOW i understand why your shipping charges are so ludicrous. This entire project has been rife with delays, utter lack of transparency, and disappointment. I will never back your products again.

Review from Kickstarter
Vie Belles, I was ok but not happy with the delay. I understand that projects get delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. HOWEVER, just a little advice, don’t ask for reviews on products WAY before customers receive them and most of all don’t send tracking numbers before you actually ship. I as most of the others here probably have purchased NUMEROUS items for years via the web. I personally receive shipments several times a week from not only U.S. vendors but from outside the U.S. I do know a shipping label can get printed and a notification sent WAY before the item ships. This is one thing that most of your customers, myself included DO NOT LIKE. I was ok with waiting, but don’t promise something and then not deliver, that is a trust killer. Just my $.02, €.02 , etc.....

Review from Kickstarter
@Juan Hervada - We are so sorry about all delay happened in this project, personally I bring over 100 products from design to the market in the last 25 years of my life. In the last 8 years in Vie Belles, we bring 48 products to the market but this was our first successful Kickstarter campaign and for this reason we had some unpredictable issue. We tried our best to make everything right and bring the high quality products that deserve you and all our backers. And be honest you will love the product that you will receive. 100% satisfaction warranty are in all our products. We like to hear from you after you receive your products, by sharing your moment with us via #myviebelles. Thank you again for all your support.

Review from Kickstarter
I'll be honest, at this point I've pretty much lost my excitement over the knife. Delay after delay...shipping that ran almost half the cost of the knife...and now tracking issues. I've actually forgot about the purchase numerous times only to be reminded by an email telling me why I'll be waiting some more. I'm not trying to be harsh or rude and I sure hope I like the knife, but honestly it's just a knife and Vie Belles hasn't blown me away with service.
