Severin delivers a top notch product but I'm sure they did have a significant spike in webstore business (who has actually bought from their site before? I doubt too many of us) so it has to be bogging them down. I'm okay with the wait to get the dvd I ordered at less than half price.

Re: Severin Films' Black Emanuelle & Malabimba Clearance DVDs & BOX SETS ($9.99-$19.9

Okay, I just dug into my email history & compared my 2 Severin orders.

Hardware T-shirt: (Order #125)
Date Ordered: 5/22/11
Update Received: 5/23/11

Malabimba DVD: (Order #208)
Ordered: 9/20/11
Update Received: 9/23/11

So, in addition to waiting longer this time around, the order numbers indicate only 83 orders they've processed in 4 months.

I think Seth's got it right:

I finally got an email response from them - as we all thought, they probably got overwhelmed by the extra amount of orders from the sale:


"We received your message and do apologize for the delay. Our orders have been high so we are working on getting everything shipped out. Your order should be shipped out within a few days and you will receive an email when it goes out. Again, we apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

Best,
The Severin Store"

No specific details (still a 'few days'), but they responded and appear to be working on getting orders shipped. I'm happy to have heard from them.

I got an email as well. Not too worried. It'll get here when it gets here.

Has anyone received a shipping notice email from the Severin store yet? Or received their order?

Just checking... nothing new on my order yet.... still showing 'processing' after another week...

Mine is still processing, too. They must have a very small staff.

Just imagine how long it would take if Code Red sold their (OOP) DVDs directly...

Hopefully at least this will be a learning experience for Severin's mailorder staff. When I bought their Hardware t-shirt earlier this year there wasn't any delay.

I wonder how far word of this sale spread. I think I read in another thread that some deals posted here are reposted on other boards? Did this become a viral bargain or something? Plus there's no counting how many lurkers placed an order (I used to lurk here years ago).

Just for a sense of scale, my shipping confirmation was emailed approx 2 weeks after I placed the order.

Malabimba DVD (Order #208)
9/20/11- Placed order
9/23/11- Status: processing
10/5/11- Status: shipped


Being a relatively new operation (approx a year I think), order #208 literally means I placed the 208th order since they started operating. I'd be curious to see some of your order #'s, see if they spiked in the last few weeks.

I did receive a shipping email notice overnight reporting that my status went to 'shipped', so they are getting them out. My order number was 209.

There is no excuse for the slow service, I know their a small company, but I handled shipping for a large corporation in which I would send out hundreds to sometimes thousands of packages daily, tired of these companies having sales then taking forever with their shit, we are small isn't an excuse when all you have to do is place a label or write an address on packages. Don't have these sales if you can't take one day out of the week to package and ship the orders. End rant.

Well, my order arrived in the mail today (despite the fact that my account still says processing) so hopefully everyone will receive their order soon.
BTW, it was shipped media mail and the label was created yesterday 10/5 and I got it today! The return address was from an apartment in Los Angeles which I thought was odd, but as long as I got my order sealed and in mint shape, I really don't care where it comes from. Just thought it would be from the company's office (maybe they don't have one?).
I'm listening to the Emanuelle soundtrack right now, so I'm happy!

Once I ordered a Ministry CD directly from 13th Planet Records (Al Jourgensen's label), and the return address for their "office" was a UPS box in Austin, TX.

Johnny Legend sent DVDs I ordered from his "company" with an envelope label that looked like it had been written in crayon.

Me too, but he did ship them very quickly.

They must have made a big push this past weekend - I got my shipping e-mail today too.

And I was # 377!

And today, 10/12/11, I finally received my Malabimba DVD! It was shipped First Class since it was just 1 DVD.

Curious thing is the return address was of "CAV Distributing Corp." (253 Utah Avenue, South San Francisco, CA, 94080).

And of the addresses printed on the Order Confirmation slip:

Correspond & Remit To: CAV Distributing Corp.
Sold To: Severin Films LLC
Ship To: me

So I guess the actual DVDs are stored up in San Francisco with CAV?

My order arrived yesterday from CAV also... everything in great shape. Took a while, but worth it.

Yes he did. I should have added that I would definitely order from him again if he had another great sale like the last one.

Where is everyone located and how many days did it take? Tomorrow will be 10 days since shipping for me. I'm in MD.
