I'm guessing people will find the official shops faster than some obscure non-affiliated reseller.
Perhaps it will all work out this way, but honestly I don't see the point.
The crux atm is not that the shops are not fast enough, but that production of the boards is too slow.
My shop has actually delivered a Pandora to a customer the day after it was ordered, less than 24 hours later. Granted that gentleman got lucky that I was in his neighborhood traveling with my shoppe in tow. But, yes, it would be nice to have production of boards in drive rather than neutral. But at least things seem to be cool with this German company ED has lined up.
I can say my shop carries Tiny Bob/EXT connectors, hard cases, cheap memory cards, cheap earbuds, and should Premium orders open back up, any of us non-affiliated shops can beat 7 business days on shipping a Pandora if we have them on hand. For instance with this new shop, a refurbed Pandora or a used one could easily change hands without having to go through Ebay's fees and run-a-round.
Everyone we sell locally is free advertising for both ourselves and the project. Now if I only had a Pandora to sell.... Just waiting for the rest of my preorders to arrive. I've paid for enough of Premiums.
