I asked to be removed from the list some time ago due to other priorities.
However, I’m still on the list at 130 / #138 and got the PM for deposit.
Please let someone else take my place.

Don’t worry about it. Just don’t pay. After some number of days (5?) another round of PMs will go out to get it up to 555.

Removing people from the list at this point will only cause problems.

Will there be any engraving on final production , I mean at least first 555 should have BLF GT logo and maybe no.172 of 555?

Nowhere just would be nice, and easier to associate number to the person who order it?

My point was that if it wasn’t specified I wouldn’t count on it. It adds to the cost. Yes, maybe it would be nice, but it isn’t free and they’re trying to come in at a specified cost. Engraving doesn’t make for a better light, and that’s the goal… a great light. No one is stopping you from having yours engraved if you desire that. Not all of us would want to pay extra for that. Heck, it’s not like there’s a central registry of GT lights and no registrar of the same, so it would perform no function outside of the list in this thread.

the only comment i put in the paypal notepad was, “ down payment for blf gt light “
will my info in the email suffice or no ?
do i need to cancel my paypal to him and do another new one ?

SO, the light will have the shippment made by DHL? Shocked

Whata hellll Sick

I hate DHL, the WORST service in brazil, they lost my packet sent by microsoft in warranty and they did not explain to me in the phone whats happen even in 45 minutes of wait with annoying music, they only telled the packet is in the way and I should to wait……

I placed a “protest” in a especific site “reclame aqui” (after 6 months waiting) and someone give a shitty robotic message with a tracking code which have delivered the packet…….. The only problem…… the address was almost 2000 kilometers far away from my house. The question ended there, almost 7 months of wait and the packet is definitely LOST, microsoft sent another packet which arrived 3 days Facepalm

I’m really worried now about this, even the cheapest shipping service (with tracking) I do not have any problem, but DHL, NEVER MORE!

I really want another mode of shipping, DHL certainly will give me headaches and gift someone with this exclusive light FacepalmSick

I’m a little confused, when I go to PayPal to send money the options below in the photo are available, which do I use?
Send to friends and family in the US or internationally?
Since Neal is in China, I assume internationally? Is this correct?

Looking back through the thread I found the answer to my question as posted by MR. Scott: :

Quote:
Attempting to summarize all the answers from the past 8 hours. (Although I’m sure I’ve missed some.)

Paypal payments are made from your paypal account (www.paypal.com (link is external)) to Neil’s address which can be found in your PM.
Paypal payments should be: “Pay for goods or services” not “Send money to friends and family”.
Your number in the PM is the correct number.
Include your real name with your address. (The postman doesn’t know your BLF name.)
If you made a mistake, don’t panic. PM Neil and The Miller.
This round of PMs only went to the first 555 people. There will be a second roun d later. The ordering of 2nd, 3rd, 4th requests only mattered if they were less than the 555 limit. Since we have more than 555 1st requests it doesn’t really matter.

How can it not be obvious we are paying for “goods or services”, not sending money “to family or friends”? We are making a down payment on a product we intend to purchase. Legally and within Paypal terms.

Are we supposed to post that we’ve paid? I figured that the Paypal info would take care of that. Nonetheless, I am baffled as well that my list placement from post #1 is different than the number given me in the PM.

I did pay and put in the PM # as reference (426) which is different than my spot on the original list (493)

I was given a different number as well. I’m number 77 in the list, but the PM had me as number 74. I paid using the number from the PM before I realized there was a discrepancy.
