Will you ship to the USA? 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
I just looked at the EU site...and I wished I lived in Europe right now! Holy Cow...you have EVERYTHING in stock, including things that are no longer available at the US website.

Do you ship to the US and if so, about how much would it cost?

I've already contacted Jeff a week ago as I got this question around Christmas from an US collector.

We need to work something out that works out for DF collectors as well as DF US if this is more widespread.

Am I correct in interpreting your post as "We currently do not ship to the US, but are working on a way to change that?"

Yes - you summarized it pretty well. And there is some progress.

I will only ship items currently not it stock on the US side and won't be in stock for a while. The preferred option should always be the US side first.

I've also just got some quotes for shipping. I will be checking them before I'm posting them somewhere in the News section on the European Site and here.

They are in the range of £45 for a single set to double the amount for 20 kg (4-5 sets).

I still need to work out how customs work and if / how likely it is to get an additional / bad surprise. I've been an expert to know all the charges the other way round.

At least one positive bit after all the negative ones: You don't need to pay VAT outside Europe. This means that you would be billed 16.67% less (1/6) from the price as shown in the shop - which should make the sale prices pretty close to the US ones.

I don't have yet automatic check-out for the US as the last time I tried to take VAT off for Switzerland resulted in a Europe wide rebate. So right now please contact me directly.

Woot - I am gonna get me some out of stock stuff!

Let us know when you have all the customs issues worked out, and how to proceed with placing an order.

And while am I thinking about it...what is the average shipping time to the USA?

FYI: If you want us to call you, you might to let us know what times to do so with the time difference and all.

I still need to work out how to automate the whole process.

At the moment just send me a list of what you want and I send a PayPal invoice.

I have a flat rate here in Europe for 2-30 kg - so I don't mind to get weights exact. To the US each kg makes a difference - so I try to get it right - so you don't overpay - or I'm out of pocket.

Customs - it turns out the seem to ask occasionally for money (and the shipper pays it). This can be around 5% and I will have to send an invoice afterwards should this happen. I know the codes that DF uses for the US that 'should' be custom free - but no guarantee. We likely will know only after a the first few customers have tried it out.

Turn-around - the manual steps slow it down. I will try to raise the invoice the same day but I'm working in a regular job most of the week and can't guarantee that. Also the manual process means that I have to tell the warehouse what to ship out and when the money has arrived. Depending on timing this can be an extra delay.

Shipping time? Ooops - I knew I forgot to ask something.
