International Shipping [UPDATE]

11 likes

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that I've been graciously offered some financial help to finish shipping the international orders. I'm packing up boxes this weekend and into next week and will proceed with getting orders shipped as soon as possible.

I'm looking forward to getting the last of these rewards out to you and wrapping up this long overdue project.

Thanks to you all!

Erik

      I guess that there still some snakes in the ladders... Did not see the package passing by here in Switzerland so far!

      nothing has arrived here in Scotland either. It's not adding up very well is it Erik? Can you please send promised goods NOW?

      Hi Erik
      Can we have an update on international orders? I'm sure there's a lot of people who'd be happy to know your still working on it and we will see our rewards eventually. No need to commit, just talk to us.
      I know you've had offers to help distribute, including mine for the UK.
      I look forward to hearing from you.
      Nick

      Any update on how long these international orders will take? It's over a month now. I've had goods from Hong Kong arrive quicker.

    7. Mary Kenyon on August 6, 2014

      Still waiting for mine, too. I live in South Dakota which is about as domestic as you can get.

      I gave this guy $60. At this point I have little hope and a lot of frustration. My reward was a domestic one and I have heard nothing.

      The excuses you use as why the project is so far behind are poor. Its like "the dog ate my homework". At least be does post updates, but will not communicate with people. I will never back any of his projects again.

      Kickstarter should have a feedback system so backers can leave feedback for project leaders as to let other would be backers on future projects if it is worth while backing the project, if the project leader is trustworthy.
      There are people who have started other projects on kickstater after they failed to follow through with their past successful projects. Kickstarter is an easy money earner for scammers and kickstarter need to do something to make it less attractive for would be scammers. Not saying Erik is a scammer.

      How do we get the makers of the kickstater site to create feedback system for other would be backers?

      Hi Erik,

      How are you getting on? I think most people are grateful for updates, even if they just let us know how you're getting on- we're backing you as someone trying to do something exciting and new and I'm sure most of us appreciate that nothing is as simple as it might look (especially in the world of logistics) so any news is good news (at least to me!) to know you're OK (and not being held up in a queue at the post office - we Brit's are all to familiar with queues that never end!).

      I guess it's good to see that I'm not the only one who has yet to receive their order. Will it ever come?

    13. Mark Wheadon on July 23, 2014

      Odd, isn't it, that you're now sending out international orders, but nobody has left a comment saying they've received anything. It's almost like you have broken yet another promise? Surely not.

    14. Alexander on July 22, 2014

      international backer.have not received anything.
      dislike.

    15. Mary Cusack on July 16, 2014

      Domestic, have not received.

    16. Bicyclefish on July 12, 2014

      I too am a domestic backer and have not received anything. I'm growing tired of the poor communication and would welcome a refund.

    17. Britta Carlson on July 12, 2014

      Just to clarify, I never received the magnets

    18. Britta Carlson on July 12, 2014

      I have over and over been requesting a refund or some kind of communication and have had no response whatsoever. What should I do at this point? I no longer want the stupid magnets and that $55 is a lot of money to me right now.... A refund should be possible yes?

    19. Mark Wheadon on July 10, 2014

      As ever, if Erik is listening, he sure ain't talking. Which is, as ever, irritating.

      1645 backers. Remove the dollars pledges, the 100 domestic, the 380 international. That leaves 1109. 1109 people have received this. Why does it not feel like that? Based on all sampling of comments through the weeks it feels like more than 100 domestics have NOT gotten theirs. Interesting.

      Well, I'm in the wall sized plus a regular (domestic shipping) and haven't received either. If international does really go out, how about an update on the rest of the domestic?

    23. Charlene McBride on July 7, 2014

      Same question here about domestic backers who haven't received their orders yet...

    24. Geoff Munn on July 6, 2014

      Another domestic backer here. At this point I'd almost rather a refund.

    25. Mike Morrison on July 6, 2014

      Erik, if you needed extra funding for this postage, how will you manage for the extra packs?

      take some time and really think this through - can you afford to continue, or do you need to cut your losses by offering refunds - it may be cheaper - then you could sell them locally and make more money

    26. Mike Morrison on July 6, 2014

      @erik - please respond to emails

      Brittany Taylor on July 6, 2014

      Is it possible for you to let us know where you are on domestic orders? I'm in the $35/ March 2013 group, and I was curious how far along you were. I know you've faced some trouble and gotten backed up, so I haven't said anything until now...

    28. Andrew Goode on July 6, 2014

      And my domestic shipment has yet to arrive...

    29. Michael Vivian on July 6, 2014

      Hey Erik. Cheers for the update. We're not ALL growing restless ;)
      Looking forward to it.

      Count me among the domestic orders that have yet to arrive.
      And the updated shipping addresses.

    32. Steven Ward on July 5, 2014

      As with many, many others....I'm still waiting too. I guess it's nice to know that some progress continues, however at this point we're ALL growing restless with this project.

      I was going to mention that I am a domestic backer who has not received my magnet comics, but I am relieved to see that other people are in the same position.

      So, instead, I'll say again -- thanks for the update, I'm glad you're still working on them, and I'm glad that people were willing to put in money to expedite the international orders. It's been an odyssey, but it's still a neat idea, and nice to hear that it's continuing to happen.

      I'll look forward to an update about the remaining domestic shipments whenever that happens.

      Stephen Nelson on July 5, 2014

      I have never received mine either. I was to get "One complete Magnet Comic with one additional character set. Characters to be determined." What's the delay?

      Rani A. Kokatnur on July 5, 2014

      Hello, like the others, I have never received mine either. If I remember correctly, I sould have received a year ago in June, by your original estimate.

    36. Don Meyer on July 5, 2014

      Same here - domestic, haven't received anything.

    37. Peg Y on July 5, 2014

      I am another domestic backer who never received my items. Quite a chorus chiming in...

    38. Karen Clay on July 5, 2014

      Ditto all of the below. What happened to the domestic orders that were supposed to have already shipped? ?

    39. Mary T. Anderson on July 4, 2014

      Yes, this does make it sound like all domestic orders have been shipped. I am another domestic order who has not received anything.

      Pathetic. Can we get an update on the domestic orders you said you would have out a month ago.

    44. Tara Bloyd on July 4, 2014

      I'm also domestic (in more ways than one :) and would love to know if mine'll be shipping soon. Thanks!
