I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# ***, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:
I ordered the Thingcharger on the *** of October That was the first time they heard from me When I had not heard anything from them in approximately two weeks, I emailed them and got no response I then called them and got a message that I could best reach them by email I tried emailing them again and received no response I called again and got the same message, that it was best to contact them by email As I thought about it I decided that four times of trying to contact them was enough I had ordered the thingcharger in October as a Christmas present and it was unacceptable that after attempted contacts they had not responded and I had no idea about whether I would receive the item in time for ChristmasI then filed a complaint with the Revdex.com The following day I heard back from the company for the first time They told me that they were crowd funded and swamped with unexpected orders and that I would not receive the object until February None of this was on their commercials or on their website so I had no idea of this until after I filed the complaint I agreed to accept an upgrade and receive the object in February After seeing their statement that I did not contact them until Dec I am no longer willing to give any of my money to this company I will accept my order being cancelled but nothing less

We are so grateful that this individual contacted us directly at the same time that they reached out to the Revdex.comWe are thrilled that we were able to help them resolve their frustration and that their thingCHARGERs are on the way.We are very sorry for the frustration that this
individual experienced regarding the delay in receiving their thingCHARGERSIt seems that they may not have been aware when they selected their perk package that thingCHARGER is still a crowdfunding campaignWith crowdfunding, an inventor takes a good idea to the internetThere, many people contribute a small amount of money towards making that idea into a realityThe inventor then takes that money and uses it to create, manufacture, and ship the productWhen the product is ready, it is shipped out to all the people who supported its creation, as a thank-you gift.Because of that process, there is usually a lag between when contributions are received and when perk packages are shippedThis can feel frustrating, but it is a part of crowdfundingWe are so excited to have reached the shipping stage and we know this individual will be thrilled just as soon as their thingCHARGERs are delivered

We are happy to ship to this individualWe've sent a brief email asking them to confirm their shipping address and as soon as we get that verified we will get their thingCHARGER headed their way.In honor of their patience and trust, we have been shipping to our supporters in the order in which they
supported our crowdfunding campaignWe began shipping thingCHARGERs to our earliest crowdfunding supporters at the end of and wrapped up fulfillment of our and supporters at the end of January We are working our way through our supporters quickly and are happy to help this individual get their thingCHARGER right away. We know that they will love the way they turned out - beautiful and top quality

We are happy to get this out the individual right away and have send them a link where they can double check that they are getting everything they need and re-confirm the shipping address. I would like to explain about our crowdfunding status and why things feel a bit "different"
with our shipping timelines, etc. We would hate for anyone to misunderstand misunderstand what thingCHARGER is all aboutWe are a crowdfunding campaign that is now shipping after years of development and lots of people cheering us on for those years Crowdfunding campaigns start out advertising and developing at the same time, and once the development of the product is completed, then the new development (in this case our thingCHARGER) is shipped to supporters in the order they joined--so there is always a lag time between when a crowdfunding campaign bills you and when you receive your items

When this transaction occurred thingCHARGER was a crowdfunding campaignAt the time of this writing this individual has received their thingCHARGERs.thingCHARGER is currently a crowdfunding campaign that has started shippingCrowdfunding has become more and more popular in recent
years--Americans are enjoying getting behind new ideas and helping small start-ups succeed. Crowdfunding works a bit differently than a typical "direct sales" and we are shipping out in the order that people supported us.Some people joined us many months before we had our product available and so we are working to send their thingCHARGERs to them first and then working our way through our newer supporters

We are so grateful that this individual contacted us directly at the same time that they reached out to the Revdex.comWe are thrilled that we were able to help them resolve their frustration and that their thingCHARGER is on
the way We are very sorry for the frustration that this individual experienced regarding the delay in receiving their thingCHARGERIt seems that they may not have been aware when they selected their perk package that thingCHARGER is still a crowdfunding campaign With crowdfunding, an inventor takes a good idea to the internetThere, many people contribute a small amount of money towards making that idea into a realityThe inventor then takes that money and uses it to create, manufacture, and ship the productWhen the product is ready, it is shipped out to all the people who supported its creation, as a thank-you gift Because of that process, there is usually a lag between when contributions are received and when perk packages are shippedThis can feel frustrating, but it is a part of crowdfunding We are so excited to have reached the shipping stage and we know this individual will be thrilled just as soon as their thingCHARGER is delivered We are sincerely sorry that none of this was explained clearlyWe will continue to work with our team to improve communication with our supporters and make sure that they are explaining the process, and why it looks so different, in cases like thisAnd as we begin to catch up to shipping to our newest supporters we will be looking into better ways to allow them to confirm their shipping information when needed

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# ***, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:
Although I have received my product, the business continues to only respond to some of my questions and concerns They have addressed my questions about *** *** and ***, but have repeatedly not explained availability of this item at *** before completing distribution to original supporters Also, they have failed to explain why they gave us inaccurate information, i.eyour items will be shipped before Christmas Finally, their response to not notifying original supporters that there would be an additional charge for adapters for older models of iPhones is unsatisfactory If they don't want to bother people with this information in advance (because supposedly so few people needed the adapters), then why is it ok for them to provide periodic *** updates that could run for minutes To me, this is a bigger bother and poor use of my time (having to watch a lengthy video to get simple updates, even implying some supporters were responsible for some of the delays).I can provide supporting documentation if requested Thank you

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# ***, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:
This response is laughable. The so called statements that is it a crowdfunding campaign -- where they exist -- are not readily evident It really does appear to me that the website is purposely minimizing anything that might provide that information to the consumer They have made no offer to ACTUALLY state "clearly and prominently" on the thingCHARGER website that it is a crowdfunding campaign and that shipping would not be immediate First, I only got to the company's website from a Facebook ad There was no indication on that ad that it was a crowdfunded campaign or that shipping would not be immediate I notice the company didn't address that Second, there is no indication on the thingCHARGER video that it is a crowdfunding campaign until the very bitter end of a lengthy video And, frankly, they really only refer to "contributions" The video also references the indiegogo.com campaign which is over And, they don't outright call it a crowdfunding campaign One would have to make the inference that they were talking about a crowdfunded campaign And, there is no indication on that video that shipping would be delayed in anyway Third, when you click on the "get yours" button on the thingCHARGER website, its automatically scrolls down -- past the faq and the rest of the website -- to the buttons to choose 1, or chargers It in no way identifies them as perks Then, in order to see the statement that it is a "contribution" (it doesn't say it is a crowdfunded campaign) -- that is in barely visible white lettering on light grey -- one would have had to continue to scroll down past the buttons to the very end of the page In addition, there is no indication that shipping would be delayed in anyway Fourth, when one chooses to purchase one of the thingCHARGER packages the website takes you to an intermediate page which provides information on the product and links to upsell you Nothing on that page indicates in any way that it is a crowdfunded campaign or that you will not be delivering promptly It looks just like a regular retail purchase By the way, the only link to the terms and conditions referenced by the company, is on the very bottom of that page There does not appear to be any other links to the terms and conditions elsewhere on the company's website. Fifth, when you select the "choose this" button and the website takes you to the order page, the only mention of a crowdfunded campaign is at the very bottom of the form after the shipping details and the "place order" button -- again requiring the user to manually scroll down to the very bottom of the page.In addition, thingCHARGER's invoice gives NO indication that thingCHARGER isn't immediately shipping, that my payment was considered a "contribution," or that it was part of "crowdfunding" campaign The invoice I recieved clearly refers to my "order," identifies the "product," and even includes charges for shipping and includes my address

We have emailed this individual to let them know that we are working on a refund.When this contributor first reached out to us they were unaware that we are still a crowdfunding campaignWith crowdfunding, many people contribute a small amount of money toward a great ideaThe inventors take that
money and turn it into a fantastic product, which we can then ship to the amazing people who supported us. Because crowdfunding uses the funds collected from our contributors to create, manufacture, and ship our products to our supporters, there is often a delay between the receipt of funds and the shipment of packages. When we learned that they were unaware of our crowdfunding status we attempted to explain our crowdfunding statusThis was not satisfactory to them, so we attempted to meet their expectations. Because of the gap that exists between contribution and shipping, we do have a final checkout form where we ask our contributors to confirm their shipping preferences and allow them to add any upgrades or tips that they might wantIn that process we do say that their package will be shipping soon, by which we mean as soon as they confirm their shipping informationHowever, this individual was not comfortable with that process and following that email, contacted the Revdex.com. We acted as quickly as we could to try to meet their expecations and resolve their concernsAs at this time they would prefer a refund, that is what we will do. We are very sorry, but hope that we have resolved the issue to their satisfaction

Currently thingCHARGER is a crowdfunding campaign which is why our process may feel a bit differentIt is very common for there to be a gap between when your card is charged and when your perk package arrivesPerk packages are the the thank you gift that you selected during the initial
transaction, for this crowdfunding campaign you receive thingCHARGERsWhen your thingCHARGERs are ready to be shipped we send an email to re-confirm your shipping address and make adjustments to your packageOur records show that we have emailed you to complete this process on the *** of December, but the email has not been openedPlease contact us at *** and we will make sure you get the link you need to get this package on it’s way to you

Revdex.com:At this time, I have not been contacted by thingCHARGER Inc. regarding complaint ID ***.The ThingCharger people seem to now be operating a different company called *** for 'green' chargersIt looks to be the same type of operation and they have collected
over $737,already from peopleI doubt those people will ever receive their products either. Sincerely,*** ***

I do not care if you have improved or added an adjustable tipWhat I do care is why your website is so misleading when go onAgain, you do not say "GET YOURS" if this is a contribution or crowdfundingWhen you say "GET YOURS", I expect to click on it and GET MINE right away, not waiting to see whether you can fulfill it or notAnd on the final page it is submit this order, NO, giving money to a crowdfunding project is not submit an order, it's submit my CONTRIBUTIONYour website is too misleading and the wording makes it advertisingI want my money back and this ORDER to be canceled.

I spoke with the customer this morningEvidently the confirmation email had gotten caught up somewhere in spam or something.

We are so grateful that this individual contacted us directly at the same time that they reached out to the Revdex.comWe are thrilled that we were able to help them resolve their frustration and that their thingCHARGERs are on the way We’re very sorry that the shipping cost was
more than the pre-paid shipping creditWhile that happens in some cases, we also find it frustratingWe are very glad that the additional cost in shipping was not as high as this individual originally saw and we were able to help them get their package on the way We are very sorry for the frustration that this individual experienced regarding the delay in receiving their thingCHARGERSIt seems that they may not have been aware when they selected their perk package that thingCHARGER is still a crowdfunding campaign With crowdfunding, an inventor takes a good idea to the internetThere, many people contribute a small amount of money towards making that idea into a realityThe inventor then takes that money and uses it to create, manufacture, and ship the productWhen the product is ready, it is shipped out to all the people who supported its creation, as a thank-you gift Because of that process, there is usually a lag between when contributions are received and when perk packages are shippedThis can feel frustrating, but it is a part of crowdfunding We are so excited to have reached the shipping stage and we know this individual will be thrilled just as soon as their thingCHARGERs are delivered
