Zen Pre-Order Batch #3 is now shipping


09-16-2020


Cronus Zen Pre Order Batch #3 is now being shipped from our warehouse in Virginia. Customers will receive two emails, one with the receipt confirming the order is now complete and one with the shipping and tracking information. It'll take a couple of days to get through all the orders, I expect they will all be clear by this weekend.

Pre Order Batch #4 is currently in production. More news soon. 

Thank you for your patience. 

Zen Pre-Order Batch #3 is on it's way!


09-09-2020


The Cronus Zen Pre Order Batch #3 has finally arrived and currently being processed by US Customs in New York. Processing time is around 4 days so we expect it to arrive at our warehouse on Tuesday September 15th.

Unfortunately, we're going to miss the scheduled date of September 12th by just a few days, but as soon as the shipment arrives you can be assured we will be working around the clock to make sure the thousands of pending Cronus Zen pre-orders are processed as quickly as possible.

Once your package leaves our warehouse, you will receive an email with all of your tracking information. I'm confident we will ship all orders from Batch #3 within 48 hours of arrival. In the meantime, I ask that you double-check your shipping address to make sure it is correct as we cannot be responsible for any mistakes (missing apartment number, wrong state, bad zip code etc.) If you do wish to make a change, create a support ticket and we will make sure that is taken care of for you - you still have a few days, so there's plenty of time to make any corrections.

Batch #4 is still on schedule for September 30th and Batch #5 is currently scheduled for mid-October. We'll have a solid date in a couple of weeks.

Zen Delayed Shipment has Arrived


07-30-2020


The delayed shipment of Cronus Zen has finally arrived at our warehouse. It's all hands on deck while we try to get the rest of these orders out as quickly as possible. Email confirmations will be sent out with tracking number details.

Thank you for you patience!

Zen Pre-Order Update


07-28-2020


About 60% of the Zen Pre-Orders have been shipped, we're just waiting on one more truck to arrive with the remainder of the Zen - we're told it should be here by Thursday. As soon as that lands we'll be able to get the rest of the pre-orders out.

If your order number is between 56963 and 59394, you are guaranteed a Cronus Zen from this batch.

Thank you for your patience, not too long now!

 

Zen Pre-Order Batch #1 Update


07-25-2020


We're currently working through the weekend to get the Zen Pre-Orders from batch #1 packed and shipped out. Tracking numbers have been sent to out to every order that has been packed, and it's estimated we should be finished by Thursday late afternoon.

The pre-order schedule has also been simplified into two batches.

PRE-ORDER #1 07/23/20: Order #56963 to 59394 *** SOLD OUT*** <--- SHIPPING NOW!
PRE-ORDER #2 08/25/20: Order #59395 and above ***ON SALE NOW***

So, if your order number is below 59394, you can expect to receive a tracking number this week. This can be found on your receipt from the Cronus store or your PayPal receipt (it's at the bottom of the page called "Invoice ID").

If your order number is above 59395, the shipment for that batch is due to arrive at our warehouse on August 25th. Once that batch has sold out, the next shipment date for batch #3 will be mid-September.

In case you are wondering "why the batches?", our factory is running at only 20% capacity due to COVID-19, so for example, instead of being able to have 100,000 units per production cycle, we're limited to only 10k at any one time, so they're being staggered out as quickly, and as fairly as possible (hence only one per customer at the moment). Then, of course, we're a slave to delays with the freight company at the factory, delays with the actual shipping provider, then more delays at US Customs and so on and so on.

We understand that waiting so long is annoying and inconvenient, but we're doing everything we can to keep production moving as safely as possible. COVID-19 is wreaking havoc everywhere, in places that you wouldn't usually think twice about.

Everyone at Cronus thanks you for your patience during these extraordinary times.

Zen Pre-Order Batch #1 is now shipping


07-24-2020


Good News! We have begun shipping the Zen Pre-Orders from Batch #1 which has been updated and expanded to cover order numbers 56963 to 59394.

As there are a few thousand in this particular batch, extra staff are on hand and will be working through the weekend to make sure all orders are shipped as quickly as possible. A USPS tracking number will be emailed to all customers as soon as it is ready for collection.

The Post Office has informed us to make sure customers know to expect delays, especially those who have ordered from outside of America, so please allow a little extra during this COVID-19 crisis.

Thank you in advance - not only for your loyalty to Cronus, but for your patience!

Cronus Zen / Drive Hub / StrikePacks Shipping Update


06-11-2020


Current Zen Backorder

Cronus Zen order numbers starting #50608 and ending #56515 will begin to ship June 15th. If your order number is valid and in the backorder queue, it's status will be marked as 'Processed'. We have enough stock to cover 100% of these orders.

All DriveHub and StrikePack backorders will also be shipped at the same time.

It will take around 2-3 days max to pack and ship this quantity, and they will be processed in order oldest to newest. An email will be sent with tracking information as soon as it is packed and ready to go. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

New Zen Orders

If you are looking to make a new Cronus Zen purchase, we have decided that it was in the best interest of our customers not to take pre-orders this time as we don't want to risk having to make you wait 3-4 weeks again because a shipment was stuck in US Customs due to massive delays for obvious reasons. We have a tentative delivery date of June 30th. If that date changes it will be updated on this news page.

As soon as I know what day they will be in our warehouse, they will be available again to buy. I recommend adding your name to the "Notify me when back in stock" option right underneath the Sold Out button (I've recently been told this is buggy on some cellphone browsers - use desktop mode in chrome or safari and it will work).

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, drope us a line at the Cronus Support Center

Cronus Zen shipment finally released to us!


06-10-2020


After 3 weeks of delays by US Customs (thanks to a craazy COVID-19 backlog) we have been informed that the shipment has been released and is now finally on its way to our warehouse.

I expect it to arrive this Friday and we will begin to ship all the pending backorders. 

Waiting for something as fun as this product really sucks, I get it, so thank you so much for your patience and support!

Cronus Zen Shipping Status Update


06-09-2020


The shipment of Cronus Zen, DriveHubs & StrikePacks continue to be stuck in customs due to massive backlogs, HOWEVER I do expect them to be finally released sometime this week.

Waiting for these has been such a pain and we can only apologise for the delay. If I knew this delay would have happened I wouldn't have made them available to purchase - this has never happened to us before, crazy times :/

Thanks again for your patience. I have also sent an email out to those with a pending order just so you know you're not being ignored.

Remember if you need support, the Cronus Support Center is a very easy to use resource that keeps track of every mail that you ever send to us each with an ID number so you're not going to get lost in a company mailbox - visit here: https:/support.cronusmax.com

Cronus Zen & DriveHubs Currently on Backorder & Server Move


05-24-2020


The entire first shipment of Cronus Zen sold out in its first launch week, and there are still a good number of orders in the Backorder queue that will be shipped as soon as the next shipment arrives. We hoped it would be here by May 29th but it looks like it's going to be a little longer, US Customs aren't giving us much to go on right now so we'll just have to wait.

As you can imagine the last couple of months has been unprecedented in terms of demand while simultaneously being short-staffed due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders in our home state of Virginia. The rules have now been relaxed during the Phase One "reopening" of the state, so more shipping staff will be returning within the next week, so as soon as the next shipment arrives we expect all backlogs to be cleared pretty quickly and hopefully, things will get back to normal around here in terms of an order being shipped the same day it was made.

In other related news, when Zen launched on May 11th, our server traffic went through the roof, so we had to migrate to a new enterprise-class server to cope with demand. Unfortunately, the mail server was corrupted and we lost a good number of emails, so if you have been chasing your order without a response, you're not being ignored or forgotten and you can be sure we will be in touch as soon as we get a shipment date confirmed.

This is an exciting gaming product, so we understand that it's painful to wait so long for something so awesome, especially if you are stuck at home with nothing to do but game all day (jealous) and appreciate your understanding and patience.

Shipping Status


05-12-2020


The new Cronus Zen has finally arrived and shipping has now begun. Any pending CronusMAX orders have been automatically upgraded to a Cronus Zen.

As you can imagine we're short-staffed due to COVID-19 issues, so we ask for your patience while we get through the orders as quickly as we possibly can.

Shipping during the COVID-19 Crisis

As you can imagine, like most of you, we're suffering from the fallout of the COVID-19 virus crisis and all staff are currently working from home. 

Luckily the warehouse is located in a remote area and the Manager lives on the same land, so he is able to go in and make sure shipping is processed every day.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is struggling right now. Stay safe out there!
