UK McLaren Edition order delays from OnePlus shop?

    I ordered the Oneplus McLaren edition the day after release. My order now says 31st for estimated delivery!

    Amazon are accepting pre-orders for delivery on the 21st (free next day unlike OnePlus).

    Anyone else in the UK had their order delayed? I'm considering cancelling and ordering from Amazon instead.

    I ordered the same day of release at about 12.45 pm mine too days the same. OnePlus support on chat said estimate is 27th Dec and apologized for the delay stating it is because of high demand.

    It's really annoying that you will be able to buy them on the 20th from Amazon (and other retailers?), but those who ordered on the day of release direct from OnePlus have to wait!

    Surely OnePlus should be honouring our orders before shipping out stock to retailers.

    I think it all depends on the region you might be in, stock comes from different warehouses depending on where you live, so, that should affect enough some orders in case of shortage of stock, as those devices have to be moved first there and then spread around

    I bet they did not anticipate how much people would get the phone so soon

    Dunnow makes sense. They probably didn't assign enough to the OnePlus shop.

    I guess the solution is simple. I'll order it off Amazon on the 20th and as soon as it's dispatched I'll cancel my OnePlus order.

    Well I was ready and all set to order at release time 9:00am GMT with a shipping window of just 24 hours.

    Realised I had a discount & by the time I sorted that out it was 9:45am and my 6t McLaren order was pushed back to 27th December.

    So I think high UK demand and low actual OnePlus stock made the difference in shipping/dispatch time.

    I’ll have something special to look forward to after Christmas!

    So this is awkward. My Amazon order shipped yesterday, so I went to cancel my OnePlus order (which was delayed until the 31st), to find that had also shipped. Both due for delivery today!
