Shipping to Tennessee, United States: $33.00

Oof… :sweat:

Edit: I really really wanted one, but these shipping costs kind of kill the deal for me. @yong, isn’t there an economy option?


#5

I don’t care if cheaper shipping takes 18 weeks lol


#6

Shipping to Germany: $38,50
Ok, good luck.


#7

Same for Greece. €187,50 is not nearly attractive enough especially since I already have one… :frowning:


#8

Will there be an option to buy the new battery and board as a set just to upgrade the older model? I don’t need a whole new system, just a better battery and more RAM.


#9

Look how much it would cost to send something like this from US to EU, probalby $40 to $50.

Yeah shipping from another country is not cheap. They are using FedEx and DHL which are not cheap either, but they are at least fast and reliable.

For such a pricey device, you clearly don’t want it to be damaged or lost during transit because it was send using normal post. So that rule out normal post.

@yong: is there is any plan on selling only the enclosure and not all the plastic parts? I see that you don’t have all the colours that was available during the kickstarter, are you planning to release all of them, or they now are “Kickstarter exclusive”?


#10

Shipping with DHL, at least here in Greece, pretty much guarantees it’ll also go through customs, so… yeah.


#11

I agree. As long as there is no way to buy individual parts, a modular system makes no sense.


#12

I just want a light-key module. I had no idea it would be necessary to play games that require shoulder buttons thanks to retroarch never taking any kind of changes I try to make to the GBA emulator’s control schemes. (I’ve been trying for months) and really just want to order a light-key module and be done with it. Is this ever going to be available and for a reasonable price? Anyone know of any other options I would have to get something like it if we are never going to get this capability?


#13

It might just be worth it to spend the money and get another kit! Shipping won’t change. Better bang for your buck, plus the new battery :slight_smile:


#14

No matter if kit or single parts. I do not pay $39 for shipping. They have to look for new distribution channels.


#15

Pretty sure it cost 10$ for shipping in the kickstRter Lol


#16

I bought one (with the kickstarter baker price), but yeah the shipping cost appears a little crazy … :frowning:


#17

gee I need that new board.
I would go for a bulk order for Germany, possibly Switzerland!
Send me PN and we can arrange and share the shipping costs


Bulk order to share shipping costs to Germany and Switzerland
#18

Ordered a student discount, white!
Please ship it out very quickly in japan, hopefully it can arrive before I leave for japan! Would love to use it on the plane trip :smiley:


#19

@PocketPC.ch The problem is: the more you order, the bigger the package will be and the more shipping costs will increase.


#20

wtf?!
well, two boards cost still 38,50 € but a third one makes 50,50?! as if a CPI board would take up such a weight. sorry but clockwork, what the hell are you calculating there? DHL does use weight for calculating shipping costs, not arbitrary sizes you draw from nowhere. I would even suspect you are trying to cross-finance something here :frowning:

nonetheless, sharing makes sense in a bulk order. It makes a mere 16,84€ shipping per board if three are ordered. so five is 12,50 € per Board for five. If I look at shipping within Germany, we talk about +3,99€ per Person, so three people would get a for 21,83 € shipping and five for 16,49 € shipping. Still a respectable discount compared to 38,50 € each.
