INTERNATIONAL BACKERS - I need your help!
If you are in the US this does not apply to you. If you are outside the US, PLEASE READ AND CONTACT ME.
According to the "Community" tab, which I only noticed just now, there are 7 backers outside of the United States.
On every reward level except the PDF it states that shipping is only available in the US. It does not state that on the PDF reward because the PDF doesn't involve shipping. At the bottom of the project description it states the following under Risks and challenges; "The Bad News - I am currently only able to offer this Kickstarter to people living in the US. If it gets funded, the journal will be made available world wide."
Because of this I assumed that only people in the US would back the project. Since I don't currently have access to where backers are from, I had no idea that anyone outside the US might have backed a PDF. Hopefully you have not backed a printed journal because I am currently unable to deliver it to you.
The reason for this is that I was not and am not prepared for things like international taxes (if any) or VAT. So far as I can tell from the Community tab, there are
- 2 backers from Australia
- 2 backers from Canada
- 2 backers from the US
- 1 backer from China
I'm asking that anyone from these countries who have backed this project to please contact me as soon as you are able. I need to know what, if any, taxes or fees apply to your country and downloading PDFs. I need your help to fulfill your reward because this late in the campaign I don't know how to deal with this situation. If VAT and such do not apply to PDFs and your country then there isn't a problem!
If you want to revoke your backing I totally understand. Again, I apologize if it wasn't clear that I'm not prepared for non-US backing at this point. When the journal becomes available on the web store I will be prepared for international orders.
Thanks for backing and I'm sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.
