    We think the technical issues that caused so many difficulties have been resolved.

    If you are unable to log on using the email address you previously used in your Store account, please try setting up a new account. 

    If you are unable to complete an order online and get the Call Customer Service error message, your quickest path to getting this resolved is to actually call 1-800- CAL-DEAD (or 201 751 6746 for non-U.S. folks). Or email customerservice@dead.net.

    If this does not work for you send me a PM with the details and we'll get on the case. But at this point it SHOULD work and we want to know if and how it doesn't.

    Thanks!

    Pre-Order

    Was the warehouse move real or just an excuse to not deliver bought and paid for products? If this was a real company, they would at least tell us what the real problem is. Did they even make any of the Halloween T-Shirts or was this all to trick us out of our money? It has been almost a month since my promised delivery date and nobody has ever told us what the problem is! Emailing Dead.net Customer Service is a wast of time, they don't respond! Calling only gets the canned response, Warehouse problems, you should get your product any day now!

    Customer Service Doesn't Exist

    I've been trying to change my home address on this site since June. Customer service will NOT do it over the phone. They also have not done it via email. They sent Dave's Picks Vol 31 & 32 to an address I no longer live at. I did not receive the current Dave's Picks that was delivered today, because they insist on shipping these to my old address. Rhino is a disgrace as it is for making everything limited edition. Who gives a shit about the number really? I want to hear the music. To guarantee that I can get a copy of each release, I bought a subscription. Obviously that guarantees nothing. I've been shopping through the Grateful Dead's website since long before horrendous Rhino assumed control. Now I'm inclined to just not bother anymore. Between Rhino, no customer service to do a simple address change and the super secret, mythical warehouse move there seems to be little point spending my hard-earned money here.

    Let Down by shipping again...

    My Daves Picks 32 order arrived today but sadly contained only 1 of the 2 copies I pre-ordered. I think by the time my ticket is read there will be no stock left to fulfill my pre-order.
    Also waiting for 3 tshirts I preordered a few months back that were supposedly be released 9/29 but no word on those yet or any response from tickets.
    I don't want to have to stop ordering from this store but I'm leaning towards buying stuff 3rd party on ebay for more now just to avoid the disaster that has become the WMG warehouse system.
    I did get both my Giants vinyl and cd sets on time, so i should be Grateful... but i got my hopes up that things were running smoothly now. I can see many people having issues still.

    THEY JUST WANT YOUR CASH. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE FANS!!!

    THEY JUST WANT YOUR CASH. If Dead and Co isn't a big enough indicator that they are only in it for the money, look at the customer service on this site.

    I cancelled my Giants Box Set due to bad customer service

    I cancelled my Giants Box Set order a few months ago due to all of the issues. I will never order another box set or subscription due to the new warehouse not being able to opertate effectively. Rather than make things right, Customer Service hides their head in the sand. I am done with this company. It's a shame our favorite band cares so little for it's fans. THEY JUST WANT YOUR CASH. If Dead and Co isn't a big enough indicator that they are only in it for the money, look at the customer service on this site.

    I ordered Dave's Picks Subscription every year until now!!!

    The saga continues. Do I order a Dave Picks Subscription this year? No. they have screwed up so many orders this year and sent me coffee mugs that are broken in the box. No one cares. Customer Service is doing nothing to make it better. This is the only place you can buy these things so I won't. That way I don't have to deal with this crappy customer service and countless frustrated emails and credit card disputes.

I placed my order for the Winterland box 4/24/8 and received it shortly thereafter. Disc #2 was flawed on Bertha. I have swapped many emails with customer service and have received many promises that a replacement would be to me soon. I finally called customer service 7/23/8 and was told that they had not yet received the replacement discs from their supplier. Seems quite a few folks other than yours truly had bad #2 in the box set. However, the replacements that week were en route so I could expect mine soon. Nothing, so 8/14 & 8/15/8 I called customer service four times. All four times, even though I called between 9-5 PST, I got the recording that they were closed. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? The Winterland box set was not my first Dead order, nor was it my last as I have made other purchases since then. However, I am at the point regarding the Winterland purchase that I am ready to contact my credit card company to have the entire purchase price contested. Is anybody else getting the same treatment?

Wink.....after all the ying yang they sent me a replacement disc...but they sent out 11/9/73 Disc 1 instead of Disc 2....sent them an email, but haven't heard squat since July 6. I figured I'll wait for them to clear this up before asking for the Road Trips 3 Disc 1 replacement.

I'm sorry for your trouble and I will pass this along to TPTB, but if you have not already taken this up with josh dot leopard at iventa dot com, you may find it productive to do so. Meanwhile, I'll get on the case.

Well, it took a while but two weeks ago, after working with Josh as marye suggested, I received the replacement disc. All is well again, and I'm a happy camper. Thanks for pointing me the right direction.

Well, sometimes orders get filled and sent properly, but often they do not. Comparing GDM with Amazon.com dealers, the latter represent a standard that GDM does not in my experience match. Even close. Look, I like dealers with personality, but I expect that they pay enough attention to their job to do things defensibly. I feel that GDM personell simply do not know how to do internet business. My Christmas wish is for Mr Weir to arrange an organizational shakeup. GDM has generally long delivery periods ("Buffalo", an extreme case, was 55 days in transit to Oslo Norway) whereas Amazon dealers manage regularly sendings of half these periods. At the end of August, I ordered Egypt and Road Trips vol 4. I got an order confirmation and nothing else, so I waited for the release and then a month longer. Getting nothing, I sent an e-post inquiring about the delay. Customer Service replied that my credit card, the same one used to buy many other GD products had been rejected and therefore the order was unilaterally cancelled---without notifying me about this. So I had no chance to arrange a rectification. GDM personell are apparently unaware that master cards are now and then rejected for no known reason, posssibly some systematic glitch. The advice from Master Card is to try it again the next day. Amazon and for example Spin cds have routines which guarantee that in case of card rejection the card holder is notified. These routines appear to be state of the art. But GDM does not have them. Dealing with GDM is too often absolutely frustrating. I do not understand why people who cannot implement state of the art routines are working for GDM in the internet area. And I wish they were not.

The first log in this thread gives the name of Casson Kauffman as a customer service agent as well as her epost address. Which does not received eposts from customers. She probably no longer works in that job...so the info should l be updated, rather than just be left uncorrected. Are we on the same page here?

Hi, don't know if this is the proper place to post this but here goes! I bought my husband a gift card several years ago from dead.net (I believe the store was then managed by gdstore.com) The gdstore.com is defunct, musictoday.com used to manage it but hasn't for over a year. They told me to contact you for assistance; we still have about $75 on the card and I would like to use it here! I have called customer service numerous times, only to have the pleasant recorded voice say that all agents are busy and to leave a detailed message (which I have done several times with no response). Any thoughts, words, advice??Thanks!

I ordered a cd over 2 weeks ago and it still hasnt shipped. I was told that it was shipping soon a week ago. I guess soon is relative. Never had problems here before and it sucks that it is happening now.

I am begining to think that Meggan took this personally and has put my order on hold or something. It has been 3 weeks since I placed the order and now I am just thinking my money is history since they wont send me the cd that they have my money for. Thanks for being such a "kind" representation for the GD.

Hi,I just wanted to order the new CD's (Road Reips 2/2+Pure Jerry). This time I only have shipping option FedEx: $21,80 to Europe for both new CD's instead of ship. USPS as it was before? FedEx is much more expensive. Thanks

Someone on the Eurotraders group just got this reply to a query about the charges. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> We've changed our international shipping method to FedEx International Express in an effort to better serve our growing base of international customers. FedEx International Express usually delivers within 5 to 9 days, as opposed to USPS International, which my take up to 60 days for delivery and provides no tracking information. As you can imagine, the slow delivery and lack of tracking visibility was a major customer service issue. I do apologize that the rates are higher, but I sincerely believe you'll appreciate the better service that comes along with it. We appreciate your business and your feedback! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Hello cosmicbadger, thanks for the information. This is very sad to hear. I've been ordering from GD Merchandise since the early 90's. Many, many, orders!. All via US Postal Service. Never been disappointed. Everything has arrived in a reasonable time. 5-9 days with FedEx is not really better!. And, if you add the higher shipping costs to the CD's, the total exceeds the free customs limit, which leads to additional custom fees. Seems I'm not able to pay about double. Sorry for that.

from our friends at Rhino: "We are currently working to re-implement a more affordable shipping option on international orders. If you placed an order to be shipped outside of the US, we will contact you. If you haven’t yet due to the lack of a lower cost shipping option, please hang in there!"

The last 4-5 orders for me have been very slow to ship. One order took so long that an item went out of stock and I was left hanging. Currently I am waiting on a pretty substantial order that has not shipped after 2 weeks, whats up? I did a customer service ticket and haven't received a reply yet. Anyone else having trouble with very slow shipping?

Well I just received the order that I refered to in my previous post yesterday. They packaged 3 x Dick's Picks into a padded mailer and all 3 of the cases had huge cracks in them. Good thing I had some spare cases to fix them with. I dont want any replacements or anything I just wanted to let someone know that the jewel cases are not indestructible and should be packaged in a box.

I placed an order a few days ago for one of the MP3 downloads. The website gave me an error when I placed the order, but I got the email confirmation and the order shows up in my order history. The downloads do not show up under "My Downloads". I tried using the contact customer support form, but I never received a response. Every time I call I can't get through. Can anyone help? (fwiw - it looks like the charge has not yet gone through on the credit card yet)

Ok back before the site "redesign", inserts were available for all the Dead Download series. Now they aren't there. An email to customer service said they weren't available at this time. Why?? I posted to the dead usenet site, and got the inserts from someone who bought the same shows I needed. So they DID exist. They just aren't out there now. Now the new tour... obviously some thought went into color coding the different shows... and making nice covers that align with the shirts that are on sale. I was at opening night and spent $100 on shirts. I'm not above paying for something I like. So I got the opening night cd. Again... no inserts. What gives? If my download expires and the download/flac files bundled together are to include the inserts, I'll have to get my download re-initiated to get them. Can't we just get the inserts back? Not all of us like stuff digitally all the time. I like cd's, in my hand to hold and look at. It's not an LP an more, but it's better than compression on an ipod and looking at a bitmap

I should say, of the 11 or so shows in the Dead Downloads series... I had 5 of them, all with inserts. I bought vol. 9 recently, and the inserts weren't there. I thought that was od...as i said the email to customer service said "there are no inserts online". Um.... ok... I posted to rec.music.gdead because I knew they existed... and got them. Luckily someone out there said he has all the inserts.. so I'll be able to get them. It's not that I'm going to ask him for the flac files.. just the inserts. :-) I'll support the boys always, and pay for what I want. So... like I said the new shows, obviously someone's putting time into making the insert covers.. what gives.
