Some Nexus 5 orders have already begun shipping

Nexus 5 shipping confirmation

Well, that didn’t take long, now did it? Those who were hot with their keys today after the Nexus 5 went live in the Play Store have already begun receiving shipping confirmations. Seems Google is cracking the whip over at their warehouse, and a few customers will have their Nexus 5s on their doorsteps in no time. Hopefully this will help wash out the bad taste left over from last year’s Nexus fiasco. Remember that?

Thanks, anon!

    Tax and shipping… :(

    • krisyadao

      Gotta love living in a sales tax-free state…

      • O’s Fan91

        We all hate you!
        *Lucky man*

      • harold

        Had mine shipped to Delaware no tax baby

        • Terry

          Can I ship mine there too? – :P

      • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

        GAAAAH. Could have saved $60 if I was you. >:(

      • Greg Nelson

        Whatevs, you pay anyway, either your vehicle registration is sky-high, or your property taxes, somewhere else you’re paying.

        • tb1

          Isn’t that the truth, they will take your money however they can!

        • krisyadao

          Yeah, it all evens out in the end. Make budgeting purchases a bit simpler, though. :P

    I ordered within the first two minutes; here’s hoping…

    … but we all know it’s not a FIFO system, there. :D

    • ChristianMcC

      That’s awesome that you just used an accounting term!

      • RitishOemraw

        If you are referring to FIFO it is not just an accounting term. Software development, logistics and other industries use it regularly. If you were referring to something else, disregard this entirely :P

        • Brian Menius

          He is, and that’s true. I know it from warehouse and accounting perspectives.

    • tb1

      lmao!

  • Greg Nelson

    I ordered at 1:09pm CST, perhaps…..

  • Anthony McKay

    I’m not as concerned about this.. as long as I got it.. I am grateful!

    • ChristianMcC

      You know it. I was sure they’d all be gone, or the server would be crashed, when I missed the announcement by nearly an hour.

  • krisyadao

    Anybody know where they are shipping from? It took a few hours for my CC to clear the transaction. I hope it ships soon!

    • e_dub

      from louisville, ky.

      • krisyadao

        Thanks! :) Got my shipping email at 3 am, ordered with 2 day shipping.

  • TeeJay1100

    Hey @ChrisChavez which one did you order? Or did you order one?

    • Brian Menius

      I imagine he passed on this one since it doesn’t have the glass back he loves so much.

      • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

        Ha!

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yeah, I got the black 32GB. I almost always opt for 2-tone white (reminds me of a Storm Trooper), but didn’t like the the big black gaping hole for the camera. If only it was silver or also white, I would have jumped on it. :)

      • krisyadao

        If you look closely at the official images of the white model, it shows the ear piece being white. Just a small whit dot on the front of the phone. Bleh.

  • Tim

    what da hey…i ordered 11:05am PDT but no shipping confirm yet…

    • Kevin

      Did you do 2 day shipping? I know I ordered at 11:06, but I did standard shipping. Last year I did 2-day shipping and then I was placed on back order for a month, not risking that again.

      • Tim

        Yes. 2 day shipping… Seems like the guy who got his shipped also did 2 day shipping.

  • RaiDei

    Ordered my black 32gb at 2:04:25 PM EDT with no shipping notice yet, still says ‘Pending’.

  • Daniel Toledo

    I ordered mine at 1pm CDT

  • darren_disqus

    UK orders are shipping from Ireland which is handy for me.

    • samster11

      To add insult to Irish injury they’re not releasing it there!

      • darren_disqus

        This is true, but that’s what a VPN is for mine should be delivered Monday :-p

        • samster11

          But surely you didn’t enter an Irish delivery address?

          • darren_disqus

            In the Republic we have a shipping option called parcelmotel it has a Belfast address

          • samster11

            Good man yerself. Will tell my buddies in Ireland.

        • Hugh Morris

          You also need a UK credit card and a UK postal address Ohh and a UK Google account . they make it as difficult as possible to buy if you’re Irish! And they ship out of Ireland?!

          • darren_disqus

            I’m Irish live in Ireland and I got one. VPN and a parcelmotel account is all you need…. Simple.

  • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

    Still no shipping email here. Waiting feverishly!

    • Terry

      Yeah I ordered mine right as it went live. It’s now up to 3-4 weeks!

  • Vito Drinkwater

    My order receipt says “You’ve made a purchase on Google Play. You will not be charged until your order has shipped.” I just checked my bank account and Google took the money out, but still no email saying it has been shipped. The play store says “Pending”.

    • John Seidner

      same here

    • John Seidner

      Mine just shipped!

    • NYCHitman1

      That’s a charge authorization to ensure you actually have the funds available.

  • scoter man1

    I bought mine 4 mins after release, I didn’t get any shipment yet.

  • Subzer0

    anybody can fake that.. XD

  • TONY ALDO

    My credit card is still waiting to be financially caressed by Google.

  • Covert Hops Society

    That says ships by November 5th…..Today is still October. It doesn’t really say it has shipped.

    Totally sucks there is nothing good on TV for you guys to leave the internets for just a little while.

    • Keith

      Look right under the big “Thank you” on top.

      • Shawn Cheever

        It says shipped probably because a label was made and stuck on the box. When the shipper actually picks it up though is a different story.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    So google said it wouldn’t charge the card until shipment and my capital one card was already charged. But no confirmation email just yet. Hmmm

  • master94

    Google learns quick. After the messed up Nexus 4 launch this launch is going really well. Is it me or was the press release a little less exciting this year around.

    • tb1

      Agreed, they should have has some sort of event, they are always exciting to watch.

  • Ryan N

    Well, that makes me feel great. I ordered the same 16GB White N5, at 2:02:53 EST (a full minute earlier), with 2-day ship.. and someone else gets their phone before me?

    How is that fair?

    • Naveen

      I was 2:02:57. no ship

      • Ryan N

        Luckily, I got my ship notice very early this morning :) Still, it doesn’t feel right that it’s not done FIFO. Did you guys get your notifications yet?

    • tb1

      This is exactly like the N4 launch, there is no real FIFO order.

  • FatBrandon

    My order says “Leaves warehouse by November 8, 2013.” When I click info, it still says Pending. My Credit Card has been charged. Does this mean there shipping it to me Nov 8th? WTF I paid an extra 4$ for two day shipping….

    • http://twitter.com/rachelquire Rachel Q.

      “By” Nov. 8. That means it could be before.

    • http://www.techmantis.net/ Minja Miketa

      It also says Nov 8th because you didn’t make it in the initial batch. The first few were to ship By the 5th. Then the 8th. Then 2-3 weeks, then they sold out. I think the 32gb is 2-3 weeks now.

    • https://plus.google.com/117835128512042732749/ Tyler

      If you log into online banking, you will see it has charged the card, but it should say “PENDING” on it (mine says that anyway), and when the item ships it will be completely charged

  • ChristianMcC

    Holy crud; did anybody notice that this super phone offers up to 60 hrs of audio playback? No more killing my phone that way at the end of the night…

  • vincent scala

    lets not forget that “ships by” doesn’t mean it’ll ship on that date only it could be earlier

  • lanister

    Les rageux “pro Apple” vont encore venir baver, oui mais après dans les poches sa va être trop gros .. il faut continuer sur la lancer des téléphones plus grand !!! j’ai un Samsung galaxy note 2 de 5.55″ et je peux vous garantir qu’il rentre tout les jeans et même les jeans slim ! until next ipad mini 2 & nexus 5 pas cher

    • Greg Nelson

      Your French is not welcome here, Va te faire foutre, trouduc!

  • JTrip

    Mine still says shipped by Nov. 8th. Funny how so many complain that 16gb isn’t enough storage without an SD card but the 16gb is sold out and the 32gb is still available.

  • trustee

    Mine just shipped…32gb white, the screen shot above is 100% – I received the same e-mail this morning with a tracking # (not scanned yet, via UPS)

    • saul

      Has anyone gotten UPS info yet? interested to see what arrival dates are looking like

      • trustee

        I’ll post it soon as I get it…I’ve been checking the tracking off and on…most probably will be scanned mid to later in the day…can’t wait!!!

      • http://innovativenurse.com/ Kevin

        Here’s what my tacking info states:

        Scheduled For Early Delivery On: Monday, 11/04/2013, By End of Day
        Originally Scheduled For Delivery On:Tuesday, 11/05/2013, By End of Day

        Last Location:Departed – Louisville, KY, United States, Friday, 11/01/2013

  • tb1

    Noooo, this can’t be happening again!! Mine changed from leaving the 5th to pre-ordered.

    • http://www.techmantis.net/ Minja Miketa

      Where do you find that information. My wallet page doesn’t list the ship by date. I just know it WAS the 5th.

      Nevermind. Found it.

  • FanboisSuck

    confirmation email at 2:11pm but no shipping yet :(

  • bannork

    Received my shipped email last night, but UPS hasn’t yet updated their tracking system or hasn’t yet pick up the package. Does anyone know where their warehouse is? suppose i could google it.

    • Biaviian

      They have several. I believe there is one in KY and another on the east coast. I am not sure about others though.

      • bannork

        sweet, mine must be coming from KY then, paid 14$ for 2days delivery so I can get it in time before heading out of the country on the 8th..phew

        • bannork

          confirmed-
          Scheduled Delivery:Monday, 11/04/2013, By End of Day
          Last Location:Louisville, KY, United States, Friday, 11/01/2013

  • Jo Munianga

    Hey, I wanted to know if anyone bought 2 nexus 5 in one order, if the shipping cost is double or just still $13.99. And what’s with the taxation? I thought at $350 the taxes would be included in it.

    • Biaviian

      I bought 4 and the shipping was $15.99..

      • Jo Munianga

        Thanks. And the taxation is always included at the checkout?

        • scoter man1

          unless you live in a sales tax free state, yes

    • tb1

      Do both of yours have the same “leave the warehouse by” date?

    • http://innovativenurse.com/ Kevin

      I purchased two, both 32gb and the shipping was 15.99 for two day.

  • trustee

    UPS tracking just updated – 2 day air, Monday guaranteed deliv. Got it shipped to my office so will receive it before 10:30 AM EST guaranteed. Weeeeeeee

  • Dean_Chance

    I made my order at 5:17 pm PST on 10/31 from the west coast on standard shipping. Initially, the wait was to be 2 to tree weeks but now my account has already been deducted. As I was also led to believe that I would not be charged until it shipped, I have to assume shiping is imminent.

    • tb1

      Don’t hold your breath my friend!

      • Dean_Chance

        Yeah, I think you may be right. Still nothing. The wait isn’t too bad but the fact that the money is in limbo already means that Google wasn’t being being completely upfront when they stated no one would be charged until the shipping date. Tying up someone’s money isn’t much different than taking it. This does kind of piss me off TBH.

      • Dean_Chance

        Edit. I have now recieved a shipping notification from google play. My phone will be shipping within 24 hours. That’s far better that the 2 to 3 weeks I was quoted for my black 32 gb phone. Thumbs up for Google from me!
