So do you have a production slot lined up with SP for this or are you hoping they will accept the order once it's fully funded and ready to go into production?

I'll probably be in on sets 1 & 2...

Holy crap shipping is expensive. Im out if it stays at that price. $30 U.S. shipping, thats the price of one of these sets. You should work on finding some proxies to try and cut the shipping in half because I think for an add on set that is only $30, youre going to lose a LOT of people that don't want to pay the same or more in shipping cost.

edit: wait i just read through it and the example prices you used are for a 4.4lb package? If thats correct and its based on weight it probably wont be so bad as these shouldnt even weigh 1lb. But ill wait to get this confirmed.

The novelties keys production don't occupy the full keyset tooling. As SP told me, if it's a full keyset, the production tools are fully booked out through this year , till the next March I guess. But for novelties , they can make with some other machines. So, we can get them sooner than those full keysets.

But the price of each kit is quiet cheap I think.
This time I have't use a USA local vendor to sell them, so I lower the price of each kit.
But, I have to let SP send the product to China vendor KP first and then send out , the shipping are higher than we thought.

As, you know , we also ask taobao buyers for 58yuan extra international transportation·fee, that is about 10USD,
I think KP has charged this on those GH buyers in the Shipping fee.

So will the shipping costs be refunded? It seems odd to be collecting shipping charges based on a 4 lb weight when we know the weight will be like 1 lb. Can we get an estimated cost for shipping a 1 lb package?

To have this shipped to Australia, would it go USA>China>USA>AU? Or just USA>China>AU? Ideally it would be USA>AU but dang, the price of shipping is $6 more than the product itself..

only those sets shown (1-4).

All of these kits complement keycap sets that you would already have to own (dasher & dancer or godspeed).

The SA addon should be matched better on Godspeed SA set, instead of Overcast which is DSA profile.

I wanted to ask again since this didn't get answered.

Current shipping charges to the US are based on a 4.4 lb package. I believe this is 4x heavier than the actual shipping weight will be. Since shipping costs are being collected up front, will we be refunded the difference at a later date?

If not, is there anyone in the US that we can use as a proxy to distribute from? $30 in shipping should be enough to ship everyone's order to a single US destination. From there it would be under $5 each to send out to individuals.

The shipping fees we quote have contained the cost which the keycaps send from US to China, because  they  are  made by SP, we must  get them first, and then distribute them to all over the world.
I'm sorry we havn't  find any vendor for help in US this time.

Is this going to get extended until we at least hit MOQ for set 1? That was really it's reason for being...

Also, probably worthwhile to see if sets 2 & 3 could be combined or something otherwise it doesn't look like either will hit MOQ.  I'm actually kind of shocked to see that set 3 has more sales than 2 since Dasher was far more popular than Dancer and you can't make a whole bottom row with either....

HOQ ive noticed the shipping has dropped from $30 to $17 for US. Might be a good thing to note in this GB that this price changed as I know me and probably others were sitting out to the extreme shipping.  Now that its been cut in half Ill probably be going in for at least one set :)

I'm sure once people get dasher & dancer into their hands whatever vendor pushed us over MOQ will be able to sell them easily.

Thanks for your coordination. Does expected shipping date would be still on Oct 2017? Is that date talking about shipping from SP or KP?
