Hi team InsideCoach.
When will you ship to Europe, please.
Looking forward.
//Martin
Robert Fitzgerald
Apologies! Thank you for being so accommodating. Ball finally arrived! Trying to figure out now how to use it. :)
Nicolas San Juan
@Jason - we have sent you a private message about your order. Please check your emails and we will stay in touch. For everyone else in EU please look for an update on your email if you read this.
Thanks!
Nicolas San Juan
@Robert - We can go ahead and refund your account, or send you another ball. We have worked really hard to get this out and it is unfortunate that some else picked up your package in your neighborhood. We have been in communication with you as much as we can as it not true that we are not responding to you. We are not a multi million company yet so we try the best we can, and your negativity doesn't help.
We know our commitment and for your information we have OUTSPEND much more then $99 to get this product to you.
USPS said we need to wait at least 30 days before they can look into -- see your other email threads we have going on with you.
Robert Fitzgerald
I might have spoke to soon. Apologies to the creators for the negative tone in my last message. Hopefully we can arrive at a mutually positive outcome here!
Robert Fitzgerald
@Jason- I'm in the same boat. They never sent out tracking numbers, so I had no idea when it would arrive. Turns out it arrived on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend when I was out of town, so it was likely stolen or misdelivered. If they provided tracking numbers, I would have been able to arrange for a friend to pick it up. But nope. $100 and over two years of waiting for nothing. And to make it worse, they aren't even responding anymore as I'm trying to file a local police report and lost package report with USPS. At this point, I have nothing positive to say about this campaign.
Jason
I was wondering when I would receive my pledge product. ANY information would be great. I feel left out. Please verify that everything is going good and that you have my address and if payment went through.
Thank you!
Robert Fitzgerald
Last week's update said that shipping would happen this past weekend. I've not gotten any notifications regarding shipping. Did shipping actually happen yet?
Nicolas San Juan
@chase I think the refund never went through - we will send you the ball soon. Look for an update and let us know that your address is current as soon as you can.
thanks!
Melissa Jean
Hi. When will we find out when ours is being shipped? Did you start shipping yet?
chase shroyer
Nicolas, Can you confirm that I am still listed as a backer (Backer #97...I had requested a refund, but decided against)? Do you have an updated ship date?
Nicolas San Juan
@Jamie - Yes we test the impact as usual. We area constantly improving on the data so please provide your feedback.
We are shipping from China end of this week!
Jamie
Awesome news! Because of the various changes, adaptations towards the end, did you get a chance to vigorously test the new ball out?
Nicolas San Juan
Hi All - Please check your emails we just sent an update with some exciting news. Please let us know if you changed you address as soon as possible.
Jamie
Good too hear from you. Aslong as your active and things are being worked out im still in :)
Kevin Wirges
Hello - I do not want an update at this point - I would like a refund. Similar to Steve, my son was in a soccer program when this should have originally shipped and now will no longer need this product due to all the delays. Please submit a refund!!
Steve Gilmer
Based on this comment from Nicolas San Juan "we are working out some issues", I assume we are back to an unknown ship date? My son was in HS when this should have shipped, and now will be starting college in the fall, and the delays meant he missed his prime for benefits. Can we get a firm shipping date?
Nicolas San Juan
@Jamie, @kevin, @Melissa - Sorry for the just getting back with you. Updates coming soon, we are working out some issues and we will provide an update soon. @Robert if the last update you got is back in January please check you spam folder. thanks everyone for your patience. We are almost there!
Robert Fitzgerald
The most recent schedule update I can see is that shipping would start at the end of Jan 2018. We are coming up on the end of Mar 2018. Please update.
Melissa Jean
Also looking for updates
Kevin Wirges
Again - I kindly request a refund. How do I go about this?
Jamie
Any updates? :)
Nicolas San Juan
@Jamie - Yes we still on schedule. We had an issue with Fedex delivering some of our components late that put us behind a few weeks but we are catching up. We will keep everyone posted.
Nicolas San Juan
@John Gray - I can't send you another survey but just send me an email with your new address please. Thanks!
Jamie
Shipping still looking good for this month?
john gray
Could you please send me a another survey, I need to update my address
Nicolas San Juan
@Carlos - please check your email and just respond to the message I sent you with your address. Thanks!
Carlos M Betancourt
I received 3 different links and it doesnt let me get any information, is there anyway I can email you my info to figure it out?
Nicolas San Juan
@Andy KS won't allowed me to resend a survey. Please check your spam folder, if you don't see it there just respond my message, (I just sent you one,) with your address.
Jamie
Great news, received and completed
Andy Turner
Hi
Please can you resend my survey as I don’t seem to have received it?
Thanks
Andy andyturner_52@hotmail.co.uk
Nicolas San Juan
@Adam, @Kevin, @Jamie and all of our backers please check your emails and make sure your addresses are up to date. We will start shipping in January, 2018. We apologized for taking this long, it was a tough project to do with limited budget but we got it done!
More info on your email boxes, please check.
Adam Hiatt
I did indeed get the October 20 email... it has now been over a month since then with no update. Stress testing was supposed to be finished by now. Is it? You asked if we would be ok not getting this by Christmas... the second Christmas by which time the ball should have been delivered.
If we did accept a ball as a prototype to provide feedback, what incentives are there? Will we get another later that has the issues worked out?
Kevin Wirges
Hello - I would like a refund at this point in time. Please process this as soon as possible.
Jamie
Yup got the 2nd of Nov update. You may want to post the updates on KS because alot of backers will not just go only there for progress (possibly opt out of e-mails or get junked) but the majority of the negative posts regarding "lack of updates" will be based primarily because nothing is shown on the KS page.
Andre Afonso
I formally request a refund in accordance with kickstarter guidelines. please contact me to get my refund,thx
Nicolas San Juan
@Jamie - I am not sure what happened but I just sent another update. Please let me know if you didn't get it.
Thank you!
Jamie
My last update was 26th August, so now concerned im not receiving your updates. Ive received all the direct backer updates via email since the last main update in KS but if your saying last update was oct 20th then for some reason I stoped receiving since aigust 26th
Nicolas San Juan
@Adam my last update was on Oct 20, 2017. So you may want to check your email on your KS profile if you are not getting my updates.
Adam Hiatt
And I couldn't edit my last post for some of the typos. Sorry.
Adam Hiatt
I have to say it's a bit disheartening to see such a lack of communication and updates by the founder. The last update was May. You say things are very much alive then where are the updates? Show us production. Skis is what you're doing? I'm part of other projects where they update monthly. This is getting ridiculous. You claim thr Adidas product is just a toy and nothing like this but it sure seems to do a lot of the same things. If you don't want to lose all your backers, I suggest you update more and be more transparent wth this process. It's been well over as year since we should have received the product and we don't even see a prototype yet. I'm generally patient with kickstarters because it trashes time to get a new product running like this but this is getting ridiculous. If we don't get something that shows there is work being done in the next couple weeks, I'm just going to ask a refund and go with the Adidas ball.
Jakub Mazur
So let's make this clear once again - I demand a refund, it's far way of schedule and "client service" or whatever you call it is a joke.
Jakub Mazur
In past weeks I've tried to reach Nicolas San Juan couple of times, in the message to everyone he promised that refund will be handled, but apparently, it's not. It's a lot like SCAM. And for sure it's not professional at all.
Nicolas San Juan
@callet @Daniel @Kevin @Ben and all the backers for our product. I am sorry for the delay in providing you an update. We have been working with our manufacturers overseas in the last month to figure out all the logistics. I will send you an update, but please give us a some more time. We are working hard on it. I will follow up on updates for everyone else and provide you the details. THANK YOU for you patience and I understand the concern of the timing.
callet
Hello. I couldnt have said it differently : Can you please send me a refund on this? Timeline was way off of when I needed this. Please reply.
Daniel Eisenberg
Unless you can update me quickly - as you said you'd have updates in June, I formally request a refund in accordance with kickstarter guidelines. Very sorry, was truly hoping to see this product completed.
Kevin Wirges
Hello. Can you please send me a refund on this? Timeline was way off of when I needed this. Please reply.
Ben Appleton
Any ETA or are you issuing refunds now instead?
Robert Fitzgerald
Any timeline updates?
Stephane
@Carlos Adidas was already selling a similar ball when this project started. But I agree with you that I needed this a year ago... unfortunately, not anymore
