Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

Like many I had trouble getting my info and proof of purchase to be accepted by the online tracking website. I emailed them, in the evening, and had two replies in twelve hours saying all was OK and I'd be receiving my grip so they have done the job so far - lets hope this continues!

I got an electronic invoice from Jacobs in email, that was accepted.
But the shipping note that came with the camera was NOT acceptable to Olympus.

Interestingly the shipping note/invoice from SRS that I scanned in was accepted!

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

I think the key thing is that the Promotion website asks you to upload a VAT invoice, so it's not about whether a shipping note or email is generically acceptable, it's about providing the VAT invoice from that dealer. Hence for some that's an email & for others that's a physical bit of paper.

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

You'd never in a million years believe the illegible scrap of paper I got in the box from Amazon was a VAT invoice!!

I don't understand why Amazon can't email a VAT invoice when it appears everyone else can......... they can send you one, but have to post it and it takes 7-14 days!

Oh, they can also fax it.......... hands up everyone who owns a fax machine or even knows somewhere they can get a fax sent to these days.

Would your local post office receive a fax for you? I guess they would charge you for the service though (& that's if you can get to it within their opening hours). Or maybe some other local business that would be kind enough for a fee, but then they may not, because of spam faxes.

I did have a phone call from Park! I should get the beast on Monday.

I'd rung them a couple of days ago to check and they reckoned at least 2 weeks, but they had the 4/3 adapter I wanted, so I paid for that and it duly arrived. I checked my credit card statement this morning and they'd taken payment for adapter, camera and batteries But that may be why I seem to have done a bit of involuntary queue jumping.

Playing with my shiny mint EP-2 at the moment. Lovely it is too.

Me! Well, technically I have access to a fax to email service which means I get a JPG / TIFF of the scan from the fax machine. I'm happy to offer this service to anyone who needs it for their receipt for this promotion. PM me and I will let you know the number and arrange to get you the fax.
