[19 April 2021] General notice: both PinePhone BE and Pinebook Pro have been split into two (or potentially more) shipping sub-batches. What this means, in practice, is that if you ordered a PinePhone BE or Pinebook Pro prior to April , then your order will dispatch at end of this month. If you ordered after the 12th, however, then your order will ship 2-3 weeks later, once shipping of the first sub-batch is completed.

Stay tuned for updates when shipping begins.

[30 April] China will be celebrating Labour Day May 1st. next week, and as a result of this no shipping will be taking place between May 1-9.

[5 May 2021] Orders placed after April 18th will ship out mid-May.

PinePhone

[20 April 2021] Shipping of the first portion of BE PinePhone's has now started. Those of you who pre-ordered prior to April 12 will receive their shipping information from DHL within the next 4 days.

As a side-note, we are looking to have one more batch ship out prior to May 1st, for people who pre-ordered April 12-18.

[25 April 2021] There are delays at the Hong Kong airport caused by a pallet of Vivo phones catching fire just over a week ago. Shipments are going out albeit at a slower rate than usual due to additional safety procedures for battery operated devices at Hong Kong airport.

EU specific: good news, PinePhones destined for EU countries should be received on April 30th / May 1st at the EU warehouse, and dispatch to customers should start on May 3rd. So, many in the EU will receive their PinePhone BE between May 4-9th. I'll let you know if anything changes

[30 April 2021] The shipping progress is ongoing. We are aware that the shipping pace is slower than usual - this is due to DHL's Hong Kong shipping circumstances (see previous update entry). 
PinePhones destined for the EU should start arriving in end-users hands next week, but in some cases may first arrive the following week, 10-16th May.

[6 May 2021] There is a few days delay, but PinePhone shipments for EU countries will begin this week. Apologies for the delay - its related to DHL's issues.

[10 May 2021] PinePhones for destined for EU countries have started shipping. The delay in shipment was caused by paperwork shenanigans we sadly had no control over. Regardless, we apologies for the delayed dispatch. The vast majority of you awaiting your phone in the EU (and ordered prior to April 15th) will receive your unit by end of this week.

Pinebook Pro

[20 April 2021] I have gotten word that the PBP production is proceeding well, without any hiccups. We currently scheduled to start shipping on April 29th.

[30 April 2021] Pinebook Pros have started shipping today. The laptops were delivered late from the factory, which usually wouldn't be a huge issue, but unfortunately (at least from a shipping standpoint) China will be celebrating a May 1st holiday next week. Pinebook Pros that do not get processed until the end of the day today will first ship out on Monday May 10th, or soon thereafter. Apologies if any of you are forced to wait a little longer.

I ordered a Pinephone BE with convergence package on April 4th this year, I just today found a thread that mentioned you're having trouble with UK deliveries, can you tell me if my phone has already been sent out?

As stated on the store page in bold red writing, on the blog posts, and in numerous other places: shipping will start at the end of this month.
Phones destined for the UK ship out from Hong Kong, as oppose to the EU, this has been solved a long time ago.

I have an email from DHL saying delivery tomorrow, quickly followed by one asking for 44.53GBP for VAT and import costs (to UK).  I've paid that unexpected amount (as I understood that a Polish VAT amount was included in the listed price) and hope to see it tomorrow.
Just helping others to get the feel for what happens in reality Smile

A wish for topic or wiki here on Pine64 would be personal order shipping and delivery experiences
grouped up in Region ( Continent ), Country, alphabethically.
I had to call DHL here in Israel in order to clarify that DHL here is strictly Door 2 Door andno PO Boxes.
Pine logistics in Hongkong have no way of knowing this. They just get an ¿illegal zip code error message.
It took days of mailing back and forth and a lot of unescessary frustration before this very simple
detail with DHL was cleared out.
