About cheaper shipping to Europe 5 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hello friends of DF. I´m from Spain. I have bought from you some sets in the last year. I only want to tell you that if you search a cheaper method to ship your sets to Europe, you will sell many many more. Some friends of mine don´t buy from you because of this.


My question is the following:
Will be other method to ship to Europe though it will be slowler? Could you give a cheaper method as a possibility?


Sorry for my bad english and congratulations for your great sets, I will following them, but I will buy more if it will be a cheaper shipping method.
Really thank you very much for all. UN SALUDO!!

Just FYI...USPS doesn't even offer a "cheap method" any more. ALthough there Priority Mail might still be cheaper but for a single box it is about $50 US. They said they were losing to much money offering Parcel service to oversea countries.

So six months ago I would say there is a cheaper method but now since USPS has changed their options I would say there might not be unless going through a cargo shipper but hen you lose the ability to ship individual packages more the container size shipments which they already were looking at.

If you get the normal package from them with say three to four sets in it the box via USPS; which is about the only other option besides their current shipper they use which is UPS (FedEx as well but same costs approximately), it would still be around $150. Not so much because of the weight but because of the dimensions.

At any rate good luck.

For previous threads concerning shipping to Europe (and other overseas locations), use the Search function using "shipping" as a keyword.

Would a DF-written "sticky" (and possibly locked) thread with a brief explanation of the shipping issue, and possible updates on efforts to find an overseas distributor, help new customers/forum-goers find this topic and get answers to their questions without sifting through old threads or reposting the same topic?

Hello,

I am a very very big fan of DF, but the price to send it to France is really too big now.
So from now to the date a solution cheaper is found for Europe , i will put my economies on a special DF bank account and wait.
Hope it will arrive in begining of 2010 !

I do the same.
A 129$ usd set like the hellscape one for instance already costs me 56€ + postage & package (around 120€)
So it is not possible to me - us - to buy one new set at a final cost of 250€.
Was glad you tried to arrange us the last order (rota1+rota2+abs2+ some accessories sets) into one package.

Indeed the 56€ douane fees are higher (96€) when you reach a amount of 300€ of the total order (including postage fees)
So our only way to order to you at DF store is to wait for other things to buy and have a maximum 580€ order (4 sets into a DF giant cardbox) to get the cheaper solution ..... or to get this european distributor we dream about for years.

Ivan no hay otra manera que de esperar por otro sets si tienes todo ahora.
Es asi que hago porque ahora tengo todo de DF y este nuevo set hellscape es un paquete muy caro con la douane y los gastos de envio.No puedo me le permitir !
El minimum es de comprar 4 sets (el maximum en un paquete).
Sabes que en diciembre hay la ROTA entrada (38$usd), con el hellscape set (129$ usd) son 2 cosas en un paquete.... bien pero necesitamos mucho.
Espero un otro set de nuevo para ganar en los gastos de envio... si tenemos el european distributor el proximo ano serai muy agradable lo entiendo tambien.

Ditto - I own approx 50 sets of DF now but bought most of these from UK shops (when you still could) and direct from the states when the £ was nearly worth $2. Since the amount of DF available in the UK has now dried up and since the pound has dropped in value (and this is likely to be semi permanent given the current state of our economy!) I have bought very little DF. I am lucky - I got into this stuff when it was expensive but still affordable.

I am tempted to buy into Hellscape as it looks AWESOME but the total price with shipping and taxes makes it simply too much given how much I would use it. The only other thing that might happen to make it more affordable is if there is a run on the US$!!!! (NO macro economic flaming/shouting at me please, I am not trying to make any kind of political statement here, just moaning about my favourite gaming accessory gradually being taken out of my wallet's reach)

A European distributor might help? Any hints - is it likely to be euro or sterling based?

Wait & see.
There's nothing else do to.
If someone appears to save us from this evil force of the douane tax it would be great and may be will buy more than expected without problems to make a long awaited order.

I only order DF when a package is full to reduce the waste of money into douane tax & postage & package.
I'm not the only one into the french community to do the same.
So as I have stated before, I have a minimum of one set of each (from uk too & DF store) & can't afford one new set like this even I really want to complete my collection and to get the latest set.
It's simply impossible.

I'm forced to wait for several months/years to complete a package even I risk to loose the hellscape forever.
It was already the case with DOE serial, I had to missed it completely but fortunately they have released it a year later into another limited edition so I could buy the 3 sets in one time and Jeff & Steafn were enough kind to add the other mini sets of my order (starter fantasy set & fantasy floor set) so igot a huge package with 5 sets inside !
Same operation with my last order (rota1 + rota2 + MBS2 + 2 or 3 accessories sets I've missed)

Euro dsitributor .... the dream !
