Guest Pre-Orders ship date?

So, I pre-ordered as a guest.

I was sent an email on how much it will cost me, but I never got an actual invoice or anything else.
Since pre-order delivery is apparently starting now, I'd like to know when I will get my Rift ... because oculus never notified me of anything since the pre-order.

Do they even have enough for all pre-orders or will they ship in small batches, months apart?

Not complaining, I just want to know ...

    Join the club.  There are a ton of threads on this subject.  No one knows anything.

    Short answer is... nobody knows a thing.

    Pre-orders are allegedly (possibly) starting to ship tomorrow. I'd take that with a grain of salt, given how the launch has gone so far...

    ah. 
    well, at least it's nice to know that I'm not alone.
    I was worrying that I messed up my order because I didn't have an Oculus account or something ...

    Same here. Bit lost if I will get it by April. Order group 30. Messed up preorder and then fulfilment.

    Ordering as a guest should be no different than ordering as a registered user. I ordered as a guest, got my order confirmation 1 minute after pre-orders went live, and got my shipping confirmation around noon today. Who you are and your order number don't matter too much compared to when you actually received your order confirmation. It's first come first serve which is only loosely correlated with the order number from what I've seen.

    I hope this gives a bit of info. :)

    There is a new methodology for figuring out when you may receive your order. It's on reddit.  It seems to work.

    It won't matter whether you have a Guest order or Oculus user order. It's the same queue.

    It's a long shot but I figure I should ask.
    cybereality, might you have any info for people who ordered the day after preorders went live? Should those people ask again in a few months or is there still hope?

    @Emiya Unfortunately I can't see estimated shipping times for any orders. The date you received when you ordered should give you an idea of when your kit will ship but it's not an exact science.

    My order said it would be shipping March 28th, so with Palmer Luckey saying on twitter the other day that pre orders would start shipping today I was assuming today it would ship.  The wait will be more than worth it, I've never tried VR before, not even google cardboard. The constantly refreshing my email continues! :D

    So Cyber since mine said March I should expect shipping tomorrow? Haven't gotten the 1-3 week email so I should expect April? Or since only 6 minutes of orders got the 1-3 weeks has March turned into May?

    We need some info....

    Yeah, I had a 28th date at order time too, but my hope for it shipping today is fading, sadly.

    Considering we are still talking about how many minuets you ordered after the open of preordering, Id say the day after will probably be a while.


    I ordered 10 mins after they started and I have not received any email or anything since preorder day. :(

    Well I'm a 25er, and I got my order confirmation order & minutes and 50 seconds after preorders opened. Also I received my "Your rift is shipping soon" email on the 24th
