How long do people generally have to wait to get their confirmation email from the CGL Store?  I may be impatient, but I just bought four different Touring the Stars (Valencia, Granada, Braunshweig, and Wynn's Roost), and no email as of yet.

I would rather buy items from the CGL store since the company earns more money than having to pay a little to a third party online store.  But at least I can get my downloads pretty much immediately at other sites.

Am I just being too impatient?

EDIT: Nevermind!  Just got it.  It may be my crappy connection at this marina that was the culprit.

Whenever I've bought digital content from the CGL store I received my mail pretty much instantly.  However, it is just a link back to the CGL store, to the Account page and order history.  You access the actual content through there, either by clicking on your specific order (SHP-XXXXXX) or the My Downloadable Files button at the top of the master order page.  So log into your account and see if the order is there.

Thank you, Xotl!

I got them all now, and I'm a very happy customer on this rainy day near Chicago.

I received an email yesterday (OCT 15) from the CGL store saying Your shipping status has been updated for order SHP-XXXXXX. And gave me a tracking # that says label generated but nit received.

This order # was from April and was a mix of digital and physical content, and all items were received then. I am assuming this is some kind of weird server hic-up.  Only other thought is one of the digital files updated or something like that could that cause an email?

Has anyone else seen anything anything weird from thr CGL store?  I haven't received any notice of a charge to my CC so I'm not to worried about it, just odd.

Thank you.

I got a notification email from CGL today that my BFS Deck was on its way. It was delivered 2 days ago, so I think something went glitchy with the email notification system.

Pff guys, I am posting here in utter frustration and not knowing what to do anymore.
I’ve received my Clan Invasion backer shipment a few weeks ago, but the faction dice set worth $125,- wasn’t included in the box.

I’ve tried to contact CrowdOx several times.
I’ve contacted Catalyst several times on two different email addresses (including the support address Bofus lists a few posts back) but there just is no reply whatsoever. I am feeling utterly ignored as a customer.
Do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

They posted publicly that quality control issues for the dice were so bad that they cancelled all the dice for wave 2 shipments, and are planning to work out a store credit or refund for all those affected.  Details are still pending.

so back on October 22 i placed an order for one of the stormcrow TC's and a bag of salvage parts off the catalyst store.

today i received the stormcrow TC, but not the salvage parts. checking the order status it still shows "unfulfilled" and lists the salvage bag in the order.
checkign the shipping notice email, only the Stormcrow mini was listed as shipped.


did they run short of the salvage bags and have to put that half of the order on hold, or do i need to contact them about it?

You can email store@catalystgamelabs.com, the new guy is answering quickly. From the response I received, those were listed before they got the warehouse so they will be shipped separately.

had asked mainly because i hadn't seen any updates about shipping/stocking issues. and wasn't sure if it was an error or just difficulties on their end.
just got an email about the rest of it shipping today.

If you are not going to ever ship the Battletech: Salvage Kits (Miscast Component Bags) say it and give us our money back.

It has been over a month and I am not happy.

I've moved the post to the appropriate spot.  Upcoming Releases wasn't it.  With any luck, Customer Service can help you.

just got an email about the rest of it shipping today.

update.. it has now been over 3 weeks since i got that email. no package with the salvage kit has arrived. and the tracking number sent in that email turned out to be the same one used for the stormcrow TC portion of my order.. which means it shows the product having arrived on the 4th, two days before the email was sent out.

somebody or somebodies in the catalyst online store's shipping department is evidently screwing up by the numbers

i have sent in a complaint via the "contact us" page on the store site, so i guess i'm back to waiting.

honestly it wouldn't be as bad except for the lack of any actual explanation..

I am very sorry, I thought they sent an email out about the Salvage Kits. Those were listed before they were in our warehouse, so we couldn't ship them out yet. We emailed the warehouse last week to find out if they are in stock yet so we can get them out.

On a seperate note....Does anyone know when the Wave 2 and Black Friday stuff will be shipped. I ordered something when Wave 2 was released and then on Black Friday. Just wondering, I know a huge amount of orders so will take time.

The Shilone that I ordered mid November took ten days to ship. Don't expect anything that you ordered from the catalyst website to move very fast

Lol, I got the notice my Stormcrow & stuff shipped 2 or 3 days AFTER the package arrived.  SO . . . you might see the stuff before the notice.

There was a disclaimer when I first logged into the store on Friday warming of shipping delays. Anyone else get that?

Ordered a couple of Shilone ASF on November 20th. No confirmation via email yet, but I just got a text message from Fedex and lo and behold : expected delivery date December 6th. Colour me pleasantly surprised !

Have been pondering on how to paint these beauties and I just found the answer on Anthony's Deviantart page :

Anyone is Canada who ordered the DRAGOON'S PACK get any updates?

I checked the company they are shipping via and I'm like...excuse me?!?!?:

https://www.asendia.com/about-asendia

They are shipping from the US to Canada, not by USPS, or Purolator or Fed ex or any other recognized company but via a combined companay from La Poste (FRANCE) and SWISS POST (SWITZERLAND).

Totally confused here.  ???

Well Catalyst never did reply to my e-mail about the lost package, but against my better judgement I tried to order a couple lances.  We'll see if those actually arrive.

Edit: So that makes a YEAR and no reply.

As I said above, email again. They've hired someone new who has responses down to less than 24 hours.

Well I've sent my first ever email to catalyst customer support.

The lance pack I ordered on november 5th still hasn't shipped, but one of the ones I ordered on the 26th has. It's unsettling.

EDIT: Turns out they didn't have enough lance packs to fill all the orders at the time. Hey catalyst, friendly advice, if you don't have the item to ship, you shouldn't wait for the customer to complain a month later before you tell them you don't have it and issue a refund.

Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Hey guys, I have an update.  Back in March I made an order for 3 beginner boxes and 3 Lance packs.  Beginner boxes showed up but the Lance packs did not.  The rest of the year went by and none of my emails were responded to.

Last week I came to this site out of interest (unfortunately the lack of a response from this company pretty much killed my interest in the hobby as I truly felt they took my money and didn’t care.).  I read here that there was a new support representative and that it would be a good idea to email them again.  And I did.

To my surprise it took under 24 hours to get a response from Chris.  Not only that, but he apologized and was able to refund me the money for the 3 mech packs plus partial shipping costs.  Restoring my faith in the company.  So keep at it, Chris said there is a huge back log of emails and he’s trying to get to them all as soon as possible.  He also stated that the store should be more accurate now in regards to if they have mech packs available or not. 

The only downside now is that the day my refund hit, all the IS mech packs that I wanted are gone… so I have to wait for more to come in before I can get my kids their respective mechs. 

Thank you Chris, and I hope this message helps those of you frustrated with this company.  Just keep at them.

Anybody place an order with catalystgamelabs.com around black Friday? I should have known better than to order from those guys there customer service is atrocious. Cue all the catalyst apologists. Call me weird but when you take my money i believe i should get a shipping notice and 3 weeks after not getting that i would think someone would answer my email. I swear I'll never buy from them again.
