There are some cheaper options available but risk of getting the package lost (in customs etc) is too high there. This is the reason we are not using those options.
However, we have decided that we will allow International backers to use their own shipping label. If you want to use this method then you can change your pledge to "within US" and don't include any shipping fee in the pledge. Before shipment of unit starts we will contact you via survey where you can mention that you will send your own shipping label by email to us. If you use this method you will be sole responsible for any lost package or delay by the shipping carrier.
Also note that each unit with all packaging will approximately be weighing approximately 1 lb (not final yet). Dimension of the units will be approx 6"x 5"x 2" (inches) (not final yet). Actual final weight and dimensions will be announced at the end of Kickstarter campaign.
