Acer W7 Upgrade - problems

  iant54 12:17 23 Oct 2009

Has anyone else ordered the upgrade from Acer's agent and encountered problems?

I ordered mine in August and had confirmation that my order had been accepted. On Tuesday, I received an email to advise that my card would be debited with £12.78 - I've checked each day, and nothing has been debited, and the Order Status page shows the Order Status as 'Pending for Payment' and the Payment Status as 'Pending for Deduction'. I have tried contacting them, but am still waiting for a response.

It's possible there's a delay due to the postal strike, and Acer are simply delaying UK orders for the time being.

Or it's also possible there's just a backlog of orders to work through, and yours is in a queue somewhere, with the e-mail just being sent out as something automated.

They won't debit your card until the product is ready to be shipped, which is more than a lot of others do.

Be aware of this on the acer website.

same here... will just have to wait till they get round to taking payment and sending out upgrade, and like dms_05 has said least they dont take the money till they are ready to ship
