For most of european countries backers, we will forward their packages to a shipping company located in Germany first, then distribute from there to different european countries, thus there is no custom charge or additional handling fee. We took this move as we take your advice very seriously and realized the custom charge or extra handling fee might be an issue with DHL, then we spent several days to find warehouse located in Germany to do the forwarding service. (They will use DPD locally). This change might result in a few days late than direct express shipping from China, however we think it's worth the wait considering free of hassle. Hope you could understand this. However for the european countries below, we still ship your item from China using the service specified below upon an overall consideration of the shipping charge and risk.
For North America, South America, Asia, Oceania, We are using DHL or EMS according to our shipping experience and your preference we received from kickstarter or email.
