We have made some changes to the checkout process for EVGA.com 30 Series orders. Now we are using a queue based notification system.
 
To sign up, use the notification button on the product you would like to be notified for. For everyone who already used the notify button previously, you are already entered. Once product is available (and it is your turn to purchase), you will receive a secure email that will allow you to purchase the product that you received a notification for. Please note that you have 8 hours to place your order, if your order is not complete within 8 hours, the product will be released back into queue system.
 
Also note that your email address that was used for the notify system MUST MATCH an email that has a registered EVGA account, if an account is not available with that email, you will need to create one before you can purchase.
 
Also note that this system will be available for US store first and evaluating for other regions.
 
Thanks
EVGA

If “I don’t want this product anymore” can I remove my "Auto notify" so it can get back into the queue faster if, say, already got one somewhere else.

 
You can now remove a card from your notification list now. https://www.evga.com/community/myNotifies.asp

If I've already signed up to be notified, do I need to re-sign up?


Nope, if you already signed up to be notified you do not need to sign up again.
 
If you had an auto notify even before the card was released, it still counts. We are including everyone who ever clicked the auto notify button while it was there.

I signed up for an auto notification for a card a while ago, but reading this post I re-submitted a notification request (prior to realizing that my original request saved a place in line). Did that reset my place in line, or is my original place in line intact from when I originally requested a stock notification?

It will go by your earliest entry. Even if you re-enter it will maintain your original entry into the notification system.

Argh, I only just signed up for the notification! I hope I'm not too far down the queue. Oh well, I'm just glad it's an option.

A few questions, though. Are we supposed to receive any acknowledgement email when we sign up for notification? I did not.
Also, is there an email address we should whitelist to ensure we get the notification email?
Finally, can a notification be sent for multiple cards? I'll buy whichever XC3 3080 is available to me first.

Email will come from support@evga.com

@evga_jacob I have to ask. I work nights, 10:30 PM to 6:30 AM. So I sleep during the day. What if I'm asleep while my email comes? Is it 5 hours once you click the link or once you get the email? It could be a pain for me if it comes at like 12 PM and I wake up at 6:30 PM.

We are doing a small test right now so due to the time anyone outside of the 8 hour window will allow exception for this test run. Going forward (after 10/6) the emails will be released during normal business hours.

When will more stock be available for this new system?

This week.

What happens to the cards that dont get bought within the 5 hour time limit? do they go back into the email pool?

Will there be "email releases" and "public releases"?



Yes they will go back into the email pool. Right now there will only be email/notification releases from evga.com. You will still be able to find it at etail/retail also.

Hi Jacob. Will this queue system also be in place when the 3090 hybrids and Kingpin editions release?

Not yet determined on this.
 
Lazaredz
Haven't seen this clarified so .... 
 
If I get the link to the XC3 and buy it, does that drop me off the FTW list?
 
Like is the 1 per household per card or per GPU family?


Its limit 1 per card.
 
gsrcrxsi
does "per card" mean per model (3080 vs 3090) or per sku (3080 XC3 vs 3080 FTW3)? there seems to be a lot of confusion about that. it's better to be very explicit in responses that could be interpreted in different ways to avoid such confusion.
 
I do also think it would be good for folks to be able to confirm that they are "on the list". you don't have to say our place in the queue, just something like "notifications are enabled for this product and was entered on <insert date>". that would placate people's fears about not being on the list without divulging any numbers or queue position.


It is per part number.
 
Talnoy
Is there anywhere you guys are going to post updates for when this is live for Canada?
 
Thanks!


This is live already for US and CA.
 
Link for you to know your date and time of Auto Notify =  https://www.evga.com/community/myNotifies.asp 
 
Just a heads up.  Won't matter for forum members, but if anyone asks, you have to have or create an EVGA account that matches the notify email address you used if you want to view this page.

Sounds awesome! What if we wanted 2 different models of cards? Say 3080 and 3090? Or if we wanted 2 different 3080 like a xc3 black and a ftw3 gaming?

Awesome! TY Jacob! So...If I made notifications 2 days ago for both FTW 3090's, you are saying I will get an email and will be able to purchase within 5 hours? SO, no issues then with freezing and all the the headaches during purchase and checkout?

Re: New EVGA.com Notification Checkout Process 2020/10/05 19:31:18 (permalink)
Well, some questions:
 
I signed up on like, day one, but HOW DO I KNOW? I never once, ever, received an email for anything.
 
Secondly, would reentering to check reset the queue?
 
EDIT:
 
Just so people are aware, a lot of questions were answered by Jacob on Twitter and in the thread:
 
 
  • There's currently no way to know where you are in queue or whether you're even signed up, HOWEVER --
  • -- EVGA/Jacob said that signing up again wouldn't reset your position and that the earliest time you signed up would be used. I personally wouldn't trust it if you're 100% sure you signed up, but there you go.
  • Each card apparently has its own queue, just ignore the ones you don't want and wait for the one you do to pop up.
  • Whitelist email is: support@evga.com
  • Still 1 card per household so once you make a choice it seems the system boots you/prevents you from purchasing anything else. Choose carefully, especially if you get in on this early.
  • 5 hours until you timeout, no word on time periods, likely day time U.S. since EVGA is a U.S. company.
  • Other regional stores will get this system once it's tested on U.S. store, no word on when
  • Jacob said drops soon (as of Oct 5th nothing yet) and throughout week.
  • Still not sure if there will ALSO be elite drops
  • If you purchased from another store (like Newegg), you're still good for this system, even if you registered the other card
 
Do remember because of the timeout system presumably automatically going to the next person, once this all starts there should be a constant outflow of emails as people pass on certain cards and buy others during varying moments in the timeout window, thus staggering the ques. Basically, it means that it will be really hard to guess the progress of queues; my guess is initial stock will evaporate, then there will be a trickle of emails as people buy late or pass on cards and their timer expires. But with a 5 hour window it'll take a whole day for 5 people to pass more or less, soooo yeaaaah, lol.

What if I had already signed up for notifications before the website changes?
Nevermind! Good work guys.

Awesome... Can you confirm the hours in which these notifications may happen?  I'm expecting that it's not going to be during normal sleep hours for most people in the USA?

6600k @4.5, 32GB RAM, etc.

Once product is available (and it is your turn to purchase), you will receive a secure email that will allow you to purchase the product that you received a notification for. Please note that you have 5 hours to place your order, if your order is not complete within 5 hours, the product will be released back into queue system.
 
Also note that your email address that was used for the notify system MUST MATCH an email that has a registered EVGA account, if an account is not available with that email, you will need to create one before you can purchase.

Question. I can't remember if I already did it on the card I'm trying to buy, if I do it again will it wipe out my place in the queue and assign a new one or will it just keep my place from before?

I'm pretty sure I've already signed up in the past, but I just signed up again twice to make absolutely sure.
 
Would this actually put me at the back of the queue again? Since I re-signed up? Or does it remember where I'm at from before.

Is this queue based on the order we signed up for the notifications? or does it randomly select a batch of people who are signed up?
If we click the notify button again now to make sure we are signed up, will that change our place in the queue?
