GMT is notorious for the web site not showing ship notices. That's why signing up for UPS/USPS/FedEx direct notices is a smart move.

GMT themselves sometimes don't even know whether or not something is sent out. When the Labyrinth P500 was shipped I was patiently waiting for the status to update. On September 28 I contacted customer service and they told me that they will send it out soon.
Another month passed so I contact them again and this time they tell me that it was sent out September 21 (so 7 days before they told me that it will be sent soon).
After some digging through random local delivery companies I was able to locate the package and get it two days later.

I don't really want to rant here because people were really friendly and helpful. Mistakes happen but I learned that you really can't trust their information in regard to shipping.

I have a package coming to me from GARDEN GROVE, CA 92842. I'm hoping the same. My order doesn't show as shipped yet.

Supposedly once their new system is implemented for the new year, shipping notices will be automated, presumably via e-mail and the listed status of your order on the GMT website.

I never bothered checking their website for order status in the past, because it would never be current. I'd always just communicate directly with GMT via their on-line chat function. That was always 100% effective at getting the information I needed.

This is my first P500.

My card hasn't even been charged, should I be worried?

Arrived today (12/2).

The only notices were from My USPS which I first received yesterday.

This will be nice to explore this weekend.

Man. I'm starting a new job on the 12th, and so I have one week left of free time... I'm hoping I'll have a chance to take that baby out for a spin before I go back to the grinder!

This was in fact Comancheria...

Charged $19 for shipping. They paid $13.45 for medium flat rate box. They could have easily just paid $11.xx or so like most online shippers.

Very disappointed.

Shipping box was not well padded, so the box itself was "soft" and crushed somewhat. Game itself (inside of shrink) not packed well it seems as contents have shifted and created a large "bulge" (reverse dishing). Until I video my unboxing, I cannot look to see what's inside, but seems cards have had something get wedge under them causing the lid to lift. Since the shrink is intact, it may have just been poorly packed this way at the warehouse.

I think it's the other way around for us europeans, i.e. we pay less than GMT pays for shipping. I guess they have a flat rate. Just be happy that your $5.55 supports us european wargamers and ensures there's a thriving community for GMT's games. If we ever meet, I'll buy you a beer.

1. Don't drink.

2. Each should pay their own shipping.

Don't worry, I was only joking, if you didn't notice. I'm happy they don't charge the real shipping rate to my country, though. I guess the upside for GMT is that I actually buy some of their niche games, games I'm not able to get here. I'm even helping them reach the P500 goal. There's a reason GMT is the only company I pre-order from. Well, that and MMP, but ASL is different for me: Purchasing ASL modules is mandatory, whatever the cost (and they are insanely expensive for me). Anyway, I have always assumed GMT wants us europeans to get in on the P500 too, and therefore keeps it affordable for us.

Was able to chat with GMT via their online chat function. They confirmed my order has not shipped yet; however, the good news is it should be shipping within the week. cool

I noticed on their shipping page that they made using USPS cost the same as using UPS unless you have an unusually heavy shipment. That is a bit distasteful when, as you said, we all know how much it costs to ship. Advertising a small handling fee so they can pay their workers would have made this a bit easier to swallow.
