TOPIC: Possible Canadian Shipment Solution
Possible Canadian Shipment Solution 1 Year, 10 Months ago  
For the Game Tiles kickstarter, international shipping costs the same whether you live in Canada (right next to the US) or in Australia (on the other side of the planet). In reality, USPS charges about twice more for Australian shipments as compared to Canadian shipments and I can understand the frustration of potential Canadian customers feeling ripped off. My understanding is that Kickstarter.com does not allow for potential different shipping fees. Other companies have come up with a work-around for that which is giving a little credit to Canadian kickstarter supporters but I don't know if DF wants to go there or will go there.

In the meantime, here's a possible solution for canucks making big pledges and living close to the border: get an American shipping address! If you do not have a friend/relative living over there, there are many companies providing an American address for Canadian customers. You can find such a place here, whatever the Province you live in. Furthermore, if you go pick-up your DF goodies over there by yourself by car, you might avoid paying taxes altogether. As a legitimate regular company, DF will have to state exactly what you paid for their product on the box containing your Game Tiles and by experience, the mailman will charge you the taxes upon delivery every time what you spent amounts to more than $100. If you go to the US, what you buy over there and bring back to Canada will be tax free up to a maximum of $400 per day spent over there per person.
