Non-US Pledgers shipping amount - Please read!

Hey all!

With only 60 hours to go, I wanted to take a moment to make sure all of our NON-US pledgers have added proper shipping amounts.  The proper amount to add to your pledge is located in your chosen pledge description.  To edit your pledge amount, visit the project page and click “Manage Your Pledge.” Enter a new amount in the pledge amount box. Note that you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected.  It's that easy!

Also, if you've added books to your pledge and are receiving more than 4 books, please add an extra $10 fee as we must upgrade to a medium flat rate box, rather than an envelope.  We are working on getting the help of a fulfillment agency, so there should be no snags in getting all of your pledges out to you on time.  As always, unexpected issues can occur so we appreciate your patience in dealing with them as they arise.

Thanks for all the great support, everyone!  If you have any questions, feel free to inbox me!

      i missed your deadline to add $15. how can i sort this out?

    3. Creator Matt Marrocco on September 19, 2012

      Thanks for the input, Danilo! @Douglas - we're talking with our fulfillment agency to figure out what we can do to avoid these.

    4. Creator Danilo Garcia Brandao on September 19, 2012

      Douglas, se a sua opção não ultrapassou US$ 50,00 você pode ficar tranquilo que ela é isenta de cobrança de impostos :)

    5. Creator Suzanne Crowley on September 19, 2012

      Congratulations guys but I cannot find a manage your pledge button to click ... I need to add 10 dollars

    6. Creator Douglas Henrique on September 18, 2012

      Hope that have a way to discriminate the package as books. You know, tax free.

    7. Creator LUIS on September 18, 2012

      what if i want the package sent to a US address

    8. Creator William Muk on September 18, 2012

      Click on the "Manage Your Pledge" button. You'd see the big blue button on the right side of this page and just below the total pledge amount and above Matt's photo.

    9. Creator Lorna Darlington on September 17, 2012

      pledged $50.00 but want to make sure that includes $15.00 for international postage, cannot find how to manage pledge.

    10. Creator mark oehlert on September 17, 2012

      If I pledged $35 and want to add a would I do that? and would that be another $20? Thx!

    11. Creator María Zamparelli on September 17, 2012

      Please be advised that even though Puerto Rico is not a state (we are a colony of the US) we use the USPostal System and the same rates apply. Thank you.

    12. Creator Michael Matzat on September 17, 2012

      Would be nice if you could do that for all german orders. Stuff tends to get stuck at the frankfurt airport for weeks if we are unlucky....

    13. Creator Matt Marrocco on September 17, 2012

      @jamie - that's correct! thanks!

    14. Creator Matt Marrocco on September 17, 2012

      @Jeroen - I'll speak with our fulfillment agency and see what we can do for you

    15. Creator Matt Marrocco on September 17, 2012

      @Guillaume & @Christian - Your pledge is correct as is! Thanks!

    16. Creator Christian Langballe on September 17, 2012

      I'm in the same situation as Guillaume Bastide (above). And has the same question :)

    17. Creator Jason Lek Yuan Chong on September 17, 2012


      Thanks! I have amended it and added the extra amount already.

    18. Creator jamie richardson on September 17, 2012


      I pledged $60, to cover 2 books coming over to UK. Can I just check with you guys that's correct as I'm a little confused by last update?

      Cheers, keep up the good work.

    19. Creator Jeroen on September 17, 2012

      Will there be an invoice with international shipments on the amount I pledged or the value of the goods? I live in Germany where most shipments with a worth of more than €22,- are intercepted by customs to pay extra taxes.

    20. Creator William Muk on September 17, 2012

      @Kim, I believe you need to click on "Manage Your Pledge" and change the amount to $40.

    21. Creator Matt Marrocco on September 17, 2012

      @jason - just alter your pledge amount in your Kickstarter page.

    22. Creator Jason Lek Yuan Chong on September 16, 2012

      Hi Matt,
      I went into my Amazon account and in there, I can't seem to amend the $75 amount. Would it be possible for me to pay you thru paypal instead? Please advise.

      Thank you.

    23. Creator Jason Lek Yuan Chong on September 16, 2012

      Hi Matt,

      I have checked and my payments are being arranged by Amazon payments. In there, I have already pledged $ do I now add another $15 since I live outside the US? (I am from Singapore)

      Please let me know? Can't wait for the book to arrive! Great job, guys!

    24. Creator Radrad on September 16, 2012

      Hi Matt,

      Just wanted to double check, I pledged $35 USD but in my actual pledge I wrote in $50, Since I live outside the US. That's good right? :)

      Can't wait for the book to ship! :) great job!

    25. Creator Kim Ross on September 16, 2012

      Hi I pledged $25 and I live in Australia, so what do I do?

    26. Creator Guillaume Bastide on September 16, 2012

      Hi !
      I pledged 60$ for 2 copies and international shipping to France (25$ + 20$ + 15$). Am I correct ? Or is it 15$ for shipping per copy ? Thanks :)

    27. Creator Matt Marrocco on September 16, 2012


      You're good - I was just asking folks to double-check that they've added the correct amount for intl shipping. Chasing people down after it's over to get their shipping payment isn't easy :)
      Hope I cleared it up for you.

    28. Creator drew stephenson on September 16, 2012

      Umm, like Bjorn I pledged $40, I've left it at $40, what exactly are you asking us to do please?
      Bit confused.

    29. Creator Henk de Nijs on September 16, 2012

      that is correct Bjorn

    30. Creator Daryn on September 16, 2012

      Is there is no additional funding needed for shipping to Alaska?

    31. Creator Björn Graff on September 16, 2012

      I have pledged directly 40$ at once. 25$ for the book an 15$ for shipping. i've never changed the pledge or added 15$ afterwards. was that correct?
      Best regards from germany!
