Shadow Hunters Shipping Costs!
Shadow Hunters Shipping! Posted on [15/04/2017] à 01:01

The product is E27 and the shipping on this is E24? Holy cow. Not worth it in my opinion. Lower that shipping.


I got 4 Metal blood bowl 12 man teams from Italy through DHL for $12 US dollars shipping. Maybe look into DHL??

Having worked with DHL in the past, prices with DHL depend on shipping volume (number of shipments / day => more is cheaper / colli) and the colli size. Just asuming here, but the box for the bloodbowl teams was probably less then 12"+ x 12"+ x 4"+.


just my 2c


Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it

Would be an instant buy if not for the crazy shipping cost.

There are only 2 ways I see shipping cost get lower for oversea buyers.


a grouped purchase by X people in the same area – that will take some trust in, and effort by whoever places the order

5×1 KG shipments cost about the same as 1×20-24 kg shipment –


or


convince a local retailer / distributor getting in on the pre-order – wich is a risk and probably a serious longer term investment


either way you have till May 15 to decide / set it up

Why cant iello supply products like this or the erratas? It makes it super rough on US fans to have the shipping be as much (or more) than the products.


And we love you guys!

the shipping is very high, i cant justify the gazette and shadow hunters when the postage is 50% of the items costs. even for the gazette alone its 22 euro for the gazette and 10 euro for the postage 🙁

Well, usually it is us europeans paying outrageous shipping costs for US products… That has actually desentizised me of the high postage when doing kickstarters.


Glad to be receiving a bit lower shipping on some products now and then (like this one).


This is supposed to be a joyful occasion. Lets not bicker and argue about who killed who.

Hello everybody,


The previous situation:


I come here to answer you. With the number of estimated preorders we cannot mind to 2 different dispatches. We must do only one. So, all the Shadow hunters boxes will be shipped from the european hub.


That's why it is expensive for the US. We are sad of this, but we cannot do differently for a small dispatch. It is very costly for us to do differently.


So, my own 2 cents is the way tycoon said: trying to make grouped purchase.


But now,


We will propose you next week a new shipping cost for USA and Canada. For those who have already paid it, we will make you a voucher:

Ah darn, heard shipping savings might be coming – not to Australia it seems !


Shame it can't be bundled with Wave 2 of the Strategic Resupply – I mean, I've waited all this time for it and to have a complete set ™, only to find out there is a new thing, it's limited edition, and it's gonna cost more to ship than the price of the set.


But I understand that shipping is high overall. I'm trying to find others in the Melbourne region to bundle an order with, but not got very far with numbers for that so far. Any Melbourne-based HoN/SoN players reading this, feel free to drop me a line 🙂


Cheers,

Ben

Hmmm – have put together a small group in Australia to pre-order a few copies of Shadow Hunters.


But looks like shipping to Australia is suspended. The message seems to imply that the shipping calculator is causing shipping rates to be too high, but the second part of the message says orders before a cut off will be honoured, which seems a strange thing to do of they've overpaid on shipping, so I wonder if it's a bad translation and in fact shipping will be going UP for Australia (at which point I suspect we give up trying to get this limited edition product – it's proving too expensive as is!)

I would like to use the paypal payment option to pre-order this but it appears to not be available.


Yet on the homepage it shows paypal as a payment option.


Am I missing something?

Paypal does not allow pre-orders for products that have not yet been created. DPG has run into this issue before as have some other companies. There was a discussion on some of the effects of this on Board Games Insider, and in that case the account was locked until the product was delivered, those denying the company the funds needed to finish the game so the funds can be unlocked!


So sorry, but Paypal does not allow the transaction. It is not DPG's call.


Remember: Tracer rounds work both ways!

Yet another new product before they have completed the KS shipping , I am still waiting for Desert Wrath , over a year late and the compendium , late as well.


I am waiting for Desert before playing Son and the Compendium before playing HoN and whatever happened to the promised solo system?


I certainly won't buy anything else until they deliver the games/modules I gave pre_paid for. They still owe me for x gazettes , I have no idea how to check how many I am owed.


As this is a limited offer then I will miss it and ask I like a complete collection I will just stop when DW arrives.


You have had my money for 18 months plus in both KS , please deliver what we are owed.


The time to offer extras is after you have delivered , I have no idea whst Cuthulu 1vor two is and if it's part of SoN or Desert Wrath , you expect us to follow every update and game module even when they don't arrive and get rolled over from KS to KS.


Mire important is when can we expect DW or the Compendium.

I must admit I have no understanding of why you would refuse to play the SoN core box without receiving an expansion that consists of an entirely different campaign (set of scenarios) in a completely different theater of the war.


I expect you have your reasons and I respect that, but your confusion about which expansion product is which likely stems from your refusal to play the game you bought. If you have not played it in a long time, then it is small wonder you did not remember what you got in your pledge fulfillment.

These questions are answered by the website:


Mythos Call 1 (required for Shadow Hunters) was an expansion blister pack you got with your initial SoN order. You can find the blister pack displayed in the store, with a picture of the blister to perhaps jog your memory and a list of components as well as preview shots of the boards themselves which could help you verify if you own the pieces.


You can also track your more recent orders in the store which should include your Gazette order. That will tell you what subscriptions you had ordered. Unfortunately, the Order records do not include the SoN KS, which is a shame.


Remember: Tracer rounds work both ways!
