I submitted a form 2 days ago and a pm 4 days and haven't received any response. Did the group buy unexpectedly end? I thought it was ongoing until the end of the month.

 

I will send the invoice in a while.

Received Invoice no. 0148 this morning. I notice that it shows "with Clip" in the Description area, although I had asked for Clipless?!

 

I didn't see any way to edit the Invoice. Should I wait for a new amended one? (The Nib Unit is correct as shown.) Thank you.

Mr Subramaniam, I replied to you in email on 25 February to confirm the details of my order, but have not heard back from you since and received no invoice from you, even though I've sent two email messages since to follow up. I see you were last signed in here three hours ago.

 

I'd appreciate it if you could confirm, either in email or on here, whether you will be sending me an invoice for the stated amount, or alternatively that you don't want my custom after all. Either way is fine with me; I just want to know with certainty and form my opinion about ASA on a more concrete basis.

 

Thank you!

I have just sent you a DM here in FPN.

From the ASA Pens website, there won't be any deliveries due to Covid-19 until the end of March. Disappointing yes, but guys remember to see things in perspective.

@Cyclohexene I certainly agree that we ought to all take care to see things in perspective, especially in these times of upheaval and worry, when we feel a loss of confidence and almost complete lack of control in the face of the severe impacts of events and changes around us. It would be a small 'win', or at least a distraction, to receive new pens (and/or other 'toys'), I'm sure; but the timing of delivery is really nothing over which to get stressed now. I doubt anyone who signed up as part of this group buy is waiting for their first fountain pen, and have nothing else to use in the meantime.

As for disappointment, I'm not even disappointed at all. Mr Subramaniam has already kindly advised that the pens I ordered, based on what you were originally going to order, would not be ready to ship until partway through April anyway, even if there was no disruption to production schedules and international postal/shipping services.

I hope Mr Subramaniam and his colleagues are keeping safe and healthy. Fulfilment of my order can wait a little while if need be, even if I myself live to see the crisis out unscathed.

I'm totally in agreement.  With the pen coming from India, super fast delivery is never an option.  I've ordered several pens from him over the last several years and am yet to be disappointed.  It will take as long as it takes.

Agreed, better for this nasty virus to pass than to have not only people at risk but also shipment delayed. I'm sincerley hoping that this will be over soon, but I suspect we are in for a long fight, as pen lovers we are unusually prepared for this (this gives you no excuse now not to write your novel or short story, or poem you've been contemplating :D) Hope everyone stays safe and enjoys and we will resume every day life soon ! :)

I hope Mr Subramaniam is in good health. A message from him will be very reassuring.
