This is WAY too expensive compared to the original zfrontier pricing

I think trying to take advantage of the western market is a poor way to start your entry into the hobby

What am I missing about the Master98 that makes it a $800AUD keyboard beyond Western market price gouging?

I was wondering if I could change the color choice of my order. I've tried emailing the email that sent the PayPal invoice and DMing the thread started on Discord but haven't received a reply. Anyone know who I should be trying to contact?

Edit: Thanks guys, got it resolved
