After ordering?

How long after placing the order will I wait before I receive the information for the member section?

I ordered a couple hours ago. Hopefully I do not have to wait 24 hours though.

Thanks

Am I really going to have to wait 24 hours before receiving information about my purchase?

I have called the sales line but there was no answer.

Pre-Sales line can not answer order questions

You need to email custserv@photopost.com about the status of your order

It has now been 21 hours since I have placed my order.

I have called for help and got no answer or return phone call after leaving a message. -I am sure they could have helped in some way. Besides in my Paypal receipt it says the number is for Customer Service.

I have also sent 2 emails to photopost. One to custserv like you suggested and one to orders because in my Paypal receipt it says that is the Customer Service Email. I have yet to receive a response from either.

Pre Sales can not help you in any way shape or form as I noted

There is no one from the order processing department there. You must email as noted. I would highly suggest you check your spam filters to see if your missing the email or not

What is the purchaser name?

Emails sent like I said already. I have checked my spam filters, and folders.

I will PM you my name.

*Edit
I can NOT PM you because you have PMs turned off... I will not put my real name here though.

It has now been 24 hours since I have placed my order, and I have still not received my product.

Even with a fully functional forums, visited very frequently by a Photopost Developer, and request upon request for help, I have not received any help other then being told what I cant do and what I need to do.

I have called...
I have posted...
and I have sent 3 emails...

I am not an unreasonable person. And this is not an unreasonable complaint.
I spent my hard earned money on a product and I am then told that I will receive my product within 24 hours and still to this moment I am no closer to getting what I paid for than when I first sent my money in.

I am asking, PLEASE will some one PLEASE process my order? Will some one PLEASE answer my emails?

Yes I am a developer but I have absolutely nothing to do with order processing in any way.

There is only one email to us by the way with the email you just sent this from and it was the one you sent an hour or so ago

I find it extremely hard to believe a few things here...

Beings that I own a run a few online businesses I refuse to believe that a person such as yourself would not have any way of contacting any one else who could either help with this situation or at least shed some light as to why this has been allowed to continue. You must be able to contact the others. There are not many for sure. Because if there were there would be some one to answer the phone, instead of the answering system that seems to be always on. And there would be some one to answer the emails sent as well.

Furthermore, I am astounded that you would try to counter this with trying to make it appear as if I had not told the truth. I did indeed send 3 emails and if it was the one sent an hour ago then it was NOT the one YOU told me to use. I found that one myself. Just so we are clear about this I even took a screenshot of my sent messages to link here to show that I have sent 3 emails.
http://www.502stuff.com/images/email.gif

Also, you state that I sent it an hour or so ago... how long does it take to reply to emails. Besides the one email you refer to was emailed an hour ago but the ones before it were sent before that.

Look Chuck,
I am not trying to argue with you as you seem to want to do. I just want my set up. I have lost many hours that I could be working, sitting here waiting for what was promised to me.

And yes, just in case your asking yourself, I did indeed plan my work around my busy schedule and yesterday and today were set aside to work on this project, and now that time is lost. I have lost money due to being so far behind.

Can you not understand my frustration?

When I tell you all I can do is email them that is just how it is. There is no one I can call or nothing I can do more than I have done.

You have sent one email that I am finding in the system unless your using multiple email accounts but anyway yes you send that an hour or so ago on a Friday Night which is after hours. I dont have any control when they respond or process your order.

By the way they did respond to your email telling you that your order was processed and you where emailed the logins on April 12th 2007 at 830pm

So it is a spam email issue from what I see on your part if you never got their email hopefully you get their reply

Damn you have a nasty attitude.

Nearly 26 hours later I have finally received my members link. That was all I wanted, except perhaps an explanation and an apology...
Alas, I have received neither.

And to think, I will be ordering one more license and 2 brand free options after I get set up and going. I sure hope I haven't made a bad decision using this set up.

Now I need to be verified on the forums in order to access and post in the member sections. I hope this does not take long.

I own my webserver Chuck, and I have full access to my spam filter and spam folders. The email never reached my webserver.

Regardless, this does not excuse how long it took to get help concerning this issue.

I simply told you they responding saying the license was issued well over 24 hours ago which means they processed your license almost immediately from what I can see.

I can guarantee that it has to be some email issue on your end if you never got the email. We see this quite alot with people and spam filters. I get probally over a hundred emails from the photopost site a day but then I have photopost.com as an approved site to get through my spam filters.

As they state it is not uncommon that spam filters treat sales email addresses as spam all the time. It is quite common on the internet.

Chuck can you check as to why the system is not recognizing my email for verification? I have tried both emails possibly used and waited over 1 hour on both.
