Long time lurker, first time poster. I just recieved access to the r1s shop, but there is nothing on there. Those who have had access before. How often is it refreshed? Getting very excited.

I was granted access to the R1S Shop only last week. There were several offerings each day but as of this morning, this is what's displayed:

My understanding is that what's in the Shop is different depending on your location, so what I or you see offered (or not) may not be what someone elsewhere sees.

I've only had access for a week but I'm seeing a recurring pattern in the R1S Shop.

First thing in the morning, the Shop usually has the message "We're all out for now." A check later in the day will typically have a few cars listed, and it looks like those then get scooped up pretty quickly. Since the R1 Shop varies by location, this is a comment that applies to the NE/Mid-Atlantic area only. And of course, there's no way to tell if the buyers snapping up those vehicles are long-time R1S reservation holders or more recent folks given access to the Shop. Still interesting though, and I wonder if folks in other areas are seeing the same kind of pattern. If they are, can we then conclude that the R1S is selling like hotcakes?
For the second day running, the R1S Shop has had the banner "We're All Out For Now." What's offered in the Shop varies by region, so this may not be the case elsewhere.
Same for me. Did you lose your delivery date estimate when you got shop access? My estimated date changed to "processing estimate" when I got access.
I did not however, I'm not optimistic that it is a reliable estimate (Jul - Sep 2023). Given my color/interior combination (RC & OC/Dark) along with being grandfathered in at the pre-March pricing, and adding Rivian's now legendary lack of accuracy with estimates into the mix, makes me suspect that my wait will be longer. Happy to be proved wrong though.
Are all of you with Shop access LE reservation holders or are there some Adventure holders who have access now?
I was an R1T Max reservation holder from spring of 2020, so by definition not the LE configuration. I changed to an R1S Adventure Large when Rivian notified me a few months ago that they were shelving their plans for a quad Max indefinitely. I had access to the R1T Max for many months, right up to the point that changed my configuration. I'm also now on my third Guide. Rivian did not grant me access to the R1S Shop until just last week however.
Several popped up at 11am central. Went with a blue/oc 21 in. Which was my original configuration.
Edit: Added a day
Just checked; my Shop still says "We're All Out For Now", so its been empty for more than two three days, at least to me. I saw the same message daily for several months after changing configuration, so it's possible that things just reverted to that previous state of Shop limbo.

Nothing in my Shop as of 1449 EDT.
In my experience, Shop updating occurs on a more-or-less random basis. What's not clear is if this is true only in my case, or is across all the Shops. We know that Shop inventory is different depending on your geographic location, and it's possible that some Shops update on a regular basis, while others (like mine) seem to do it on an irregular, essentially random basis.
