The release is still on track for 2:00 PM CST this afternoon (Sunday, November 16). Remember that Daylight Savings Time ended at 2:00 AM this morning.
We’re doing this one a little differently. Cody figured out how to upload brushes without either having them appear one at a time or taking down the entire site in advance. The release this afternoon should to be triggered by Shopify’s clock, at which time all the brushes will appear and be available for purchase at the same time.
Remember that having a brush in your cart won’t protect against someone else bagging it. Whoever proceeds to check-out first secures reservation for 5 minutes; however, leaving check-out eliminates protection. Many have suggested various changes, but all of this is just the way Shopify works.
Unfortunately, there is still no good way for us to ship brushes outside the US. We’re also not shipping soaps or balms outside the US at this time, but that is under evaluation and could change.
Also, remember that we plan to do releases on a more regular basis in the future. (See https://www.paladinshaving.com/blogs/news/re-surfacing.) If you don’t see the brush you really want, or someone else beats you to it, please be patient. There will be more.
