The NorDeUk kit adds support for these languages: Norwegian, British, German, Danish.

Ah yes, the well known British language.

I wonder how much weight those artisan keycaps have. Donīt they push the keys like Cherry MX red down? This is why I hesitate to order them

I've been trying to order on CandyKeys for a while now, but when I hit "Place Order" I just get a spinning circle. I've tried it in Firefox, Chrome, and on my phone. Has anyone else had this issue?

Placed an order with CandyKeys just fine earlier. Maybe itís geo blocking? If youíre in North America there should be a GB proxy over there.

CandyKeys says they ship to North America. 

The US proxy is MKUltra. Based on the owner's attitude in posts to r/mechanicalkeyboards and their huge backlog of unfilled orders, I'm not sure the company will still exist by the time this set is supposed to ship. I'm always afraid of buying in to the next GMK Hyperfuse.

I guess I could try a different proxy, but I figured I would get it fastest with the company based out of Germany.

I'm in the US and placed my GMK Nord order with Candykeys for much the same reason.  I'd never heard of MKUltra before, so I looked at his site and his post history on Reddit.  Hard pass.  I had no difficulties placing my order with Candykeys shipped to a US address; give it another try later.

Hey thanks.  It worked this morning.  I wonder why it didn't go through the last two times I tried.

Thinking about pursuing this route as well. Is the street number just the number that precedes the street name? Seems kind of redundant unless I'm supposed to omit the street number from the street address...

I ended up just putting my street address in twice since it was required.  I figured the post office would be able to figure it out.  Fingers crossed.

What happened with GMK Hyperfuse, did the buyers just not get their keycaps at all?

I'm also extremely hesitant to buy from MKUltra... but to use CandyKeys like some others here, the price of international shipping would make this set way too expensive for me, on top of an already high price tag compared to some other GMK sets. I also wondered if MKUltra would actually exist next year, seeing as much of their business seems to be from cutting foam, but other companies like KBDfans themselves are now going to start cutting these foams - I imagine people will soon move on to other companies with better histories in fulfilling orders. I want Nord a lot... unsure if I should take the risk on MKUltra, and hope that if their business is going to close, they'll at least pass on the orders to another reputable vendor. Or swallow the high shipping fees from CandyKeys...

You might want to take a closer look at the price difference.  Note that the prices listed on Candykeys' site include VAT, which you do not pay as a US customer.  If you have an order shipped to an address in the US, VAT will get removed during checkout.  When I placed my order with Candykeys, my total came to 150.99 Euros.  I placed that order using a credit card that gets a good exchange rate and doesn't have additional fees for foreign transactions or currency exchange; that turned into a charge to my credit card for $170.56 for the base and numpad kits.  If I place the same items in my cart on MKUltra's site, it adds up to $181.17 ($125 base + $35 numpad + $2.55 route shipping insurance + $7.02 shipping + $11.60 sales tax).  So for me, it was cheaper *and* less sketchy to order from Candykeys.  YMMV.

Ah you're right, I tried changing my checkout location to the US on CandyKeys and without the VAT charge the total is close to the same as from MKUltra. Thanks for pointing this out! I guess I'll be going with CandyKeys. The only question now, is how to fill out the street number vs street address parts of the shipping form...

I, um... I don't know. xD I got caught up in other US people saying they wanted to buy from CandyKeys because it's closer to GMK factories, but DeskHero would be better for me.

Personally, I didn't see that it was any cheaper. (I actually found the Australian proxy to be the cheapest for some reason.) And from past group buys I have followed it looked like those that ordered from CandyKeys got their sets first. I'm not certain that is true, but they don't have to wait for transatlantic freight shipping before shipping out individual orders.

For any other group buy I would definitely support my local proxy though.

Candykeys said express shipping to Americas would be 15 euro but price hasn't changed on the site. I ordered from mkultra personally. Might have done candykeys if price was actually cheaper for me. I've personally never been wronged by MKultra (purchased foams before peolpe began reporting issues). Hoping shipping won't be an issue and hes around in a year lol.

Will assembly get made if it doesn't hit moq? If not, would we have the option to shift to base?
