Maybe I should cancel the order.
Probably, but I can't confirm as I don't have the 6D. The model numbers under the usernames, anyway, change depending on your post count and have nothing to do with actual photography :)
5DIII, 17-40, 24-105, 70-200/4IS, 50/1.8II, 85/1.8 and a truckload of gimmicks and bits.

not sure of 6D compatibiltiy -- check thephotogadget.com site. 

btw just in case it isn't obvious.. the camera designation under your username has nothing to do with what one really shoots with.  thats just a progressive scale that assigns a more expensive camera depending on the number of posts you make :D.

veterans have 1DX assigned.  that doesn't mean they shoot with a 1DX it only means they are prolific posters :D

on edit:  here's the compatibility list

Wireless TTL Slave mode: Canon 5DIII, 6D, 7D, 60D, 600D, 650D, Yongnuo ST-E2, Canon 580EX II, Nikon SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, Commander SU-800, Camera with CLS i-TTL system:D4, D3x, D3s, D3, D2x, D700, D300s, D300, D200, D7000, D90, D80
•Hot shoe TTL mode: Canon 1Dx, 1Ds series, 1D series, 5DIII, 5DII, 5D, 6D, 7D, 650D/T4i, 600D/T3i, 550D/T2i, 500D/T1i, 450D/Xsi, 400D/Xti, 1100D, 1000D, 60D, 50D, 40D

FYI, the 568EX-II (identical except for a master flash function) is now available for about $10 more - I got a couple last week and so far they're behaving fine, talking to Canon and YN slaves with ETTL ratios and FEC set through the menus on a 7D and 5DIII. It should also mean a drop in prices on the original 568EX, while stocks last.

nice to see the master capabillity in the II;  thats bound to be very attractive for many, i.e. to use it as a primary/only flash.   my personal preference is to use a Canon speedlite for that, so I'm quite happy with my 3 slaves next to my 580 EX II :D.

I did an indoor shoot with two 568s in an umbrella and one as a hairlight.  fired them all with the 580 EX II on-camera, and worked like a charm.  Another configuration I haven't tried yet, but sounds interesting,  is to use Syl Arena's OCF cord to place the 580 EX II inside a softbox or umbrella along with slaved 568s.  Alas, the cordless freedom is so attractive I might have to invest in some 622s

anyway wahoo go team go;  the 568 is a winner imho.  keep em fed with eneloops lol
