Suggestions for the hawks eye
    #3619264 - 01/12/05 06:26 PM (12 years, 13 days ago)

Im new to the shroomery and recently was looking into ordering some spore syringes. I was trying to find a supplier that could get me my spores pretty quick (like a week or so). I realized it was the holidays and my order might take a little longer. So on the 27th of december I dropped my envelope in the mail. On the 5th of January I recieved a e-mail confirmation that my letter was recieved. So its been about 16 days since my letter was mailed out and I dont know if my order has been shipped yet. My problem is their website is misleading. At the top of one page it says this:
"We have also increased our shipping speed to send orders out 5 days a week now so your order will be back to you within 2 to 3 days."

That led me to believe that three days after sending my letter my spored would be here adjusting for the holidays I figured a little over a week. Then farther towards the bottom it says this:

"We have recently increased our shipping schedule to ship orders out 3 times a week. You should receive your order back in about a week from when you send it."

Ok now its getting a little confusing. Finally at the bottom it says this:

"Please do not email us asking if we received your money unless you have not received your spores or an email from us within 3 weeks of sending your money. (write the date on your calander :smile: Please include a 2nd & 3rd choice for your order. Also if you include a readable email address on the order form, we will email you letting you know your letter was received and approximatly when your order is going out. This also acts as a receipt. If buy chance you have been waiting a while, and/or did receive and email from us that your order was mailed, but did not receive it. Then please check this RETURNED ORDERS LIST before emailing us. Also we do not replace lost or stolen cash orders. We do recommend you send a money order because they are easier to track."

After finally reading that I had no clue as to when to expect my order.

So my suggestion is to modify their website to make it very clear when their order would have arrived.

If I would have realized it would take up to a month to get my spores(which just seems ridiculious) I would have ordered from a supplier that could get me my spores faster. Waiting a month sucks when you could already be well into your first flush within that time.

A do belive T.H.E. to be a very reputable vendor and Ryche seems to be a very nice guy. It would be cool to have a survey or something as to how long it took people to recieve their order from differnt vendors.

Criticizing a company for slow delivery around the Christmas and New Years Holiday may not be totally fair. The USPS after their Christmas rush are still playing catch-up with the volume of mail they received.

Anyone who has been in business for any length of time may know that it's hard to get things done between December 20th and the end of the first week of January. Shipping is slow, people are out spending time with their family and in the U.S. watching football.


Couldn't help for noticing your handle: "IcebergMcNasty" Is that Freudian for cold hearted mean guy or does it have a kinder meaning?

A FOAF got rocket fast service from The Hawks Eye several times and their products have a good reputation.

Patience will be learned in this hobby one way or the other.

"thehawkseye is top notch"

yeah really. Ryche knows what he is doing so the wait you have to endure will be overshadowed considerably by the quality of his spores.

I understand your concern but let me explain that The Hawks Eye has been around for a very long time and is extremely reputable. 

I understand that waiting for you product (longer than expected) can definitely drive ones patience thin :frown:

But being a vendor, I understand that sometimes products do get backordered (meaning they're not in stock and you may have to wait awhile until they come back into inventory).

I would suggest giving them another shot in your next purchase, but if you're definitely in a rush email them and ask if there are any delays on the item you want to buy.

I agree on the shipping times, around the holidays. I held shipments until the first of the year myself to avoid lost and damaged packages, and the post office still managed to lose 7 of my customers packages. And that does not include the slower delivery times which should be expected. we were seeing packages we shipped on January 3rd, just arriving at their destinations in the last few days. Thehawkseye may not be the fastest to ship, but their products are of good quality, and they have a solid reputation in the community. All good things come to those who wait

Umm, not to worry you or anything and I'm sure you must have given this some thought but it sounds like something more may be going on here.

I've been in business 4 years now and have probably sent out 10 to 20 times the packages in one week that you do, and in all that time, we've had one package get lost. One.

Seven in a matter of days isn't good and at the very least I would consider switching carriers....immediately.

How could he get your spores to you before your letter even got to him?

Agar, that is just plain rude. other than that Holiday week, we mail no later than next day, never offer anything that is out of stock, we verify addresses before shipping, and maintain excellent customer service. and WE DO NOT SLAM other vendors.

The Hawk's Eye is is one of the best vendors on the web. he has been in business so long he don't have to bust ass to please anyone. His reputation keeps him in business. Anyone ordering from him will get their spores and they will be happy.

I agree with you. There are times when all vendors will have shipping problems. I am sure every vendor here has had returned packages because of the bogus names and incomplete adresses customers use. These people are waiting on there package to arrive and blaming the vendor. Christmas is a nightmare for anyone shipping packages and most use USPS. I think all vendors have a good turn around time.

Bogus names are the number one reason for returns to us. Since the terrorism problems in the US, the post office is more careful about delivering packages to people. I read that in Canada you can no longer send a letter addressed to Grandma Smith, you must use her full name. Also people have a habit of giving incomplete addresses, not listing if they live on a street, ave, lane etc. Some towns have more than one Oak, maple, etc. This leads to a package being shelved for about a week, before it heads back to the sender. A good hint before placing an order with any vendor is to go to www.usps.com and enter your address in the zip code finder. If the address comes up good, I would expect that the post office will get the package there without problems.

just go on irc where they are not affiliated with them and get testimonials ever heard of getting a third party opinion. I don't buy anything unless it has a evaluation usually. Its a good rule to have.
