Yes, subscribers get their PDF when their books ship, even if it is after Street Release date. Release date is 30th, as mentioned in the quoted post, shipping should be finished by the 31st. So some of us will get the PDFs after the date you can buy them direct from the Paizo store. It's happened before, and it will happen again. I find it's best to just enjoy the FREE PDFs when they arrive, rather than stress about it. Then again, I'm in NZ, so my books won't arrive for months either - but they'll get here :)
so there's no benefits to subscribing other than a pdf
Correct. And that's exactly what it says on the product pagE . Free PDF is pretty cool, to me. We are still within the published shipping window, until Wednesday. No point stressing about it until that point is passed, because someone had to be the absolute last shipment.

Tolkien did it, so why not Paizo ;-)
I am really struggling to get to store pages. The forums work fine but everytime I try to go to a link for a product I get this error:
"You’ve reached this page due to an error on paizo.com. The web team has been notified and are working to fix the issue.
Click here to return to paizo.com"
In addition I am struggling to access my 'assets' I have to keep clicking on the links to download, so it takes 4 or 6 clicks to get anything downloaded. I also get a lot of this error:
"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
Is there any chance I can restart my for subscriptions and keep the advantage, rather than waiting until another item of each had shipped. I stopped my subs after I lost my job due to CV, but have a new one now and want to continue supporting Paizo. Amazon is so much cheaper here in NZ, but it I can keep advantage I'm happy to restart subs. Otherwise I'm waiting until the next module ships,
You made exactly the same post in the Fifth Edition DnD section of ENWorld, and didn't get back to the 30 pages of replies, so I'm confused as to what you are after? In 5E Paladins can be of any alignment, as can Necormancers. Is this a Pathfinder 2 sepcific thing or 5E or what? No such thing as a Necromancer in PF2E or 5E, class wise? You talk about a mechanical solution, so we really need more stats to give that
Getting your PDF early is not one of the offered benefits of subscribing, although it is often happens as a nice bonus. I'm in NZ so getting stuff shipped from the USA teaches one patience ;)
What advantages are there to subscribing?
Many of our Pathfinder & Starfinder products receive a free PDF of each subscription volume purchased as part of their subscription. Some subscriptions include a percentage discount on each new release in the subscription line. See individual subscription pages for more details.
Those who subscribe to four or more qualifying subscription lines receive a special benefit for subscribing. See "What is the Paizo Advantage Discount?" for more information and restrictions.

thanks, but yeah I know, trying to support Paizo. I'll be switching to ad hoc Amazon purchases once the flow of products means I won't be keeping up. Even the reduced PF2 rate of publication will be to much for me, eventually

Woohoo! Mine just cleared customs. :) Maybe I'll get it two weeks early - that'll be a record for me!
Wow that's pretty sweet to ozzie! I've had to delay mine until the next round of subs, as without the delayed lost omens book I didn't qualify for the 15% off. Then it's got to make it to NZ :)
At least the archives will have stuff to peruse
5E is the same, with a 'hand economy'and arguments about what you can and can't do wit that. Thankfully in 5E you can just ignore that, and it'snot unbalanced (tho it invalidates a feat). I hope you can do the same here!
