2021-Feb-10 Update: Price drop to $650 (from $700)
- For this to work, you’ll have to trust me.
My Librem 5 might be shipped in August 2021 - my estimate.
I’m selling it now. I request full payment now, upfront, by bank transfer. I’m from Romania, an European Union country.
Then I’ll transfer the pre-order to you. See the details below.
During the two weeks after that, you can still ask to reverse this transaction in case you’ll change your mind.
I pre-ordered the phone on 2018-Sept-4, and by my estimate from that time, it’s about the 3700th pre-order in the queue. The current reliable estimates from Purism makes me think that they are delivering about 500 phones / month all the way to May 2020, and if that trend continues, my Librem 5 might be shipped in August 2021.
I wish to sell my pre-ordered Librem 5 now and move on. Otherwise, if I’ll have to wait until shipping I would just keep the phone instead of selling it.
I’m asking for full payment, upfront, by bank transfer. I have Romanian IBAN accounts and I can provide you these currency options :
RON 2815 (Romanian currency)
This price includes that free-shipping that is provided by Purism but not any other fees that you might need to pay in your country when the package arrives, like: VAT, customs fee, DHL custom handling fee, etc… (The same price policy that Purism has).
After I’ll receive the money from you we’ll do the best we can to transfer this pre-order in your name, by contacting the Purism Support. I don’t know how cooperants they will be. In the worst case scenario, I’ll keep the pre-order and when the shipping address confirmation arrives, we’ll put your name and address so the phone ships directly to you.
After we’ll manage to agree that we have finished this pre-order transfer, I will allow for another 2 weeks time for you to change your mind and ask that we reverse this transaction. First we transfer back the pre-order to me, and then I will transfer the money back to you subtracting the cost of the bank transfer (about 5 EUR I think).
Other things to know: I paid $599 for the Librem 5. If you later ask for a refund from Purism before shipping, their refund policy states that you only get the money ($599) when it’s your turn in the pre-order queue to receive the phone.
