Introducing “Create Order”

You can now create new orders directly from within My Amplifier.  No more emailing Client Service*.  No more placing orders from your Online Store. Create Orders gives you an easy button to send out simple shipments.

How it Works

You can create your own order in 3 simple steps:

  1. Click the new “+ Order” Button at the top of your ORDERS page
  2. Fill out Sender, Recipient, Order Contents and Shipment Details
  3. Review Your Order Details then Place Your Order.

UsingCreate Orders is simple and straightforward.  But we did want to call out one particular feature for you to be aware of…

Managing Delivery Windows

Orders are often time sensitive.  We built Create Orders with that in mind.   Using our Do Not Ship Until Date, you control when your order is released into our warehouse for shipping.  When combined with a service-level-bound Shipping Method (e.g. “UPS 3 Day”), you’ll be able to make sure you’ve got the right stuff in the right place at the right time.

UPS Domestic Air Methods (3 Day, 2 Day and NDA) are almost always delivered on time, but if you play your cards right, you can also usually rely on UPS Ground Estimates to get your shipment to where it needs to be at a lower cost.  Here are estimated delivery times for UPS Ground shipments from Amplifier headquarters in Austin.

We want to get you what you need, where you need it, right on time – but please play it safe. Strive to get your Created Order out a little early, to allow for time to react in the event that something goes wrong. Better safe than sorry. 

Reddit Gifts pays a Visit

Our friends from Reddit Gifts paid us a visit in Austin last week. 

As you can see from this Twitter selfie, much fun was had.  Especially enjoyed take their team our to experience Alamo Drafthouse… After it sank in that he was sitting at the greatest movie experience known to humankind, Reddit Gift’s founder Dan McComas began to lament, “It’s not fair that you get this…”  

It is so not fair Dan. So deliciously, hilariously not fair.  We will pour out a .40 for you next time we see a movie at Alamo.  Some time next week. 

Really enjoyed hanging out and getting to know you, thanks for making the trip!  Hope to return the favor in SLC soon!
