    Don't doubt. I'll admit it :) I just received my Peter Gabriel Us/Up 33RPM bundle an hour ago. Return address and invoice both show "PopMarket" on them. Hopefully, everyone else receives their "pending" PopMarket orders.

    Did they send you any kind of notification first??

    No notification at all. It just showed up on my doorstep. Postmark and invoice show April 5 ship date.

    I'll probably see mine then even though I've bought it somewhere else. Oh well, I'll probably sell it at a bargain for someone

    The best guess is that the warehouse had labeled unshipped orders when it was locked shut. My theory is that the new management is just moving this stuff out regardless of status.

    My last order from them (including the Kinks mono set, and 4 other single LPs) got shipped to me just before Christmas, which was a month after I placed the order, but I was happy since I finally got the order.

    Then two months later, I got re-shipped 3 of those 4 single LPs, and not re-charged. I'm sure it was some sort of duplicate error. I wonder if I should ship them back or if I should give them away to friends (I'd feel bad selling them).

    Whoever picked up the pieces of Pop Market, their first order of business is to start turning around the negative vibe surrounding the company and make some friends. Fulfilling old orders, no matter their status, is a great way to do this. They probably bought the existing inventory for a greatly discounted amount. Creating good will by shipping these orders when possible won't cost them a lot. It's cheap advertising and an enlightened move by the new management. It gives me hope that they will have their act together.

    Well, the domain name is alive again and the website is back, looking as it has the past few months. I was even able to log into my account. It seems they may keep the brand alive rather than switch everything over to Direct2U. Between that and the backorder shipments that people are receiving, evidently they're trying to make good.

    I liked the concept (especially when it was one deal/day), and if they upgrade customer service I could see myself ordering a lot more in the future.

    I agree! The daily deals were a great way to pick up items I was on the fence about.

    Yep - same here. Got a couple of very nice deals that way, and often major savings because so many of the deals were on box sets and deluxe editions.

    I just ordered the Sgt Pepper super deluxe box set with a gift certificate that I had not used and the WELCOMEBACK15 code to get the price under $87.00! Great deal!
    Welcome back, PopMarket!

    Actually, we will see what happened since I got email that it was over $140.00. Hmm.

    Did they make you pay for it up front or do they charge you at shipping?

    Very interested to see how this goes- keep us posted on the Beatles purchase. It'll determine whether it's worth ordering from them again, or just moving on.

    I'm definitely not paying up front for preorders.

    They did charge me for taxes but not for shipping, but paypal shows a charge of $86.74 while on popmarket shows I was charged $136.74.
    Hmmm..
