Preorder outside the US

We’ve had the pleasure of working with the team at Paizo to create a series of licensed sets for Pathfinder 2nd Edition. The sets – four exciting new Encounters - were specifically designed for the inaugural module The Fall of Plaguestone.

I think an equivalent discount would be reasonable.

Just as a point of reference, inside the US shipping, is pretty cheap. For example when I ordered a Watchtower and 2 Erinthor mountain sets the shipping was only like $22. For Imperial Streets. Catacombs, 2x Monster sewer sets that shipping was only like $24 bucks. So this is a two-edged sword, the incremental cost for giving international backers a discount on shipping will not cost them too much, but it will also not save backers tons of dollars either.

That's pretty cheap. :mrgreen:
Only Alaska and Hawaii (in/well kind-of in the USA) are farther than us in the NW, and I will say it's more than that to ship DF up here. Plus our state added internet sales taxes on top and including the shipping costs.
So our internet sales tax is like a state "VAT". "Very Annoying Tax" ;) :lol:

I sympathize with our overseas bretheren - but the reality is that giving away $10 in domestic shipping is one thing - shipping (even light things) overseas gets insane quickly

I do feel like there ought to be some equivalent benefit for overseas early backers

discounting the product more is not always smart - it makes retail markup look like gouging and encourages speculators

the old Resin Case incentive seems like the best plan - anyone who backs at $100 or more gets a free "XandSUCH" as a backing thank you - it doesn't need to be exclusive - but it should be cool and not available to anyone else until later

and i am just going to say it again - a T-Shirt would function PERFECTLY in this role and cost about nothing and fit in just about any box as packaging

It would be really nice to get some incentive as well for Non-US Residents.

We are in many ways penalized.
We pay much higher shipping costs,
We get our products especially KS-pledges much later,
We can not easily participate Gen Con and get give aways or special offer etc.

I could argue, that every DF Customer overseas is the "True loyal customer" ;) or just stupid enough to accept the "discrimination" :shock: ;)
