As they state in the post Monday through Thursday, so by this Thursday!

I ordered on July the 12 in Paris and it should have been activated by last week 😞 Is that normal ?

Could my activation really happen by the end of this week? I ordered mine November 17th (Santa Clara server). I remember the ETA when I first ordered was December 29

Finally my week, fingers crossed, 19th July for Paris. 

 

Hi guys mine is due to be activated on this week? But my only issue is the order has disappeared on the orders page as that because it's about to be activated?

If you click on “Subscriptions” on the left of your account page, you should see your Shadow under “My Subscription.” It should say something like “Waiting activation.”

Yea it does mate thanks, 

Phew... 

Haha 

What's the crack with payment? Does it come out a month after the activation? 

As u pay ure first month up front?

So I’m not due for activation this week, I didn’t get the email telling me my activation was delayed to December. So, I can only be activated next Monday to avoid being delayed for a 3rd time!

This concerns Boost activations.

For Ultra on EU datacenters, the estimated date is still “2021” to this day.

Exactly. You'll pay again 30 days after your activation.

If you really have pre-ordered on the 12th of July, on Paris datacenter, and still are not activated, please contact the support team using your Shadow account panel.

I live in the UK and my shadow is pending activation for March new year… I noticed GB is in Amsterdam and Paris… why can’t I have my activation in Amsterdam instead?

Remember … this is the actvation for Shadow Boost tier, Shadow Ultra will start the activation in 2021.

So it doesn‘t mean that you will get Shadow ultra so late.

Because UK is connected to Paris Datacenter.

Amsterdam is for Holland and Germany.

The estimated activation date was twice or thrice mentioned on the website when you ordered.
And if you preordered recently, in europe (except Netherlands and Germany), yeah you’ll be activated in june 2021.
When and where did you exactly preordered ?

You can cancel your order. You’ll get your funds back if you choose to do so.

Hey, I am in New York and I ordered mine on the nineteenth of October. This weeks activation says they are activating from the first to the tenth. at this rate, I should get mine in only a few weeks, but when I check my order it still says by the end of January.  Is my math off, or is there something I am not getting?
