Monolith just sent out the updated shipping for the Conan KS. Must say I'm very pleasantly surprised from an Australian perspective, if I'm reading it correctly we have the 2nd cheapest shipping of any country?! ($19 for king pledge) Well done Monolith!

Commiserations to those who do not have as good rates, but I think overall for the size of the game and add-ons the rates are reasonable.

Just a heads up. They edited the update since they put the wrong shipping prices on it. Australia and new Zealand went up a little bit.

It appears there has been a revision for Aus/NZ

Aus King - $23.20
Aus All In - $39.60
NZ King - $38.60
NZ All In - $88.00

Still very reasonable for Australians! I'm getting mine sent to Australia so I'm quite please it didn't end up at $50+

It's worth mentioning, too, that there will be two waves with no shipping charges on top of those posted: one targeted for the first quarter of 2016 and the second for summer of 2016.

Quote:
WAVE 1 - First quarter of 2016: Base Box, Stretch goals and Add-Ons (all of them but not the Artbook/campaign)

WAVE 2 - Summer 2016: Expansions (Nordheim, Khitai, Stygia) + Artbook/Campaign

I'm VERY impressed with shipping to Brazil!
I was really worried it would end up in the $100+ range (like CMON tried to steal, err... "charge" once)...

Once again Monolith gives me a good surprise!

MUCH better than the estimated $80 at the start of the campaign. Might have to jump on the pledge manager now and up my pledge from $1

The shipping costs have been revised to show some very favorable rates to the U.S. laugh

PledgeManager is going to be open to everyone, so you'll just be out the difference in the exchange rate if you jump back in.

On the french forums, one the Monolith guy said something arround the line of:
18.70$ for one King, but 27$ for 2.
Something along those lines. Don't hold me on the numbers but the shipping will decrease gradually.

So will it decrease gradually or not?
If not I will be really sad and frustrated.
Big box should be much cheaper than two boxes half the size of it.

I am so glad the shipping cost (for all in) to Australia is 40 bux because I was expecting it to be 100 bux or something.

Based on that example, second box would be half the cost of the first (ie, about $9).

Thanks, I misread the previous comment.
That sounds pretty good.

Not necessarily, shipping can be a very tricksy hobbit. Depending on the courier and MOT (mode of transport) there can be various thresholds in any of weight, volume and dimensions that can affect the shipping rate. It's an absolute minefield.

my guess would be, that this was the main reason for the delay of the PM.

Since not using a flat shipping price, getting all the details for each added piece and their influence on shipping for all countries sounds like quite a hassle, in particular if you are checking offers of different shipping services.

Was it really necessary to charge more than 33 USD for shipping
to Czech Republic?

We are part of EU, just next to Germany
that pays some 11 USD less.

Is Monolith really not making money on shipping?
Must we from Europe always sponsor shipping for US?
