Anyone have any word on shipping estimates? I'm sure there is a comment in one of these threads somewhere about this, but the number of threads and comments here has gone up exponentially in the last 6 hours and as such is slightly more difficult to sift through... My order finally went through and I'm wondering if anyone from Riot can or has offered any sort of clarification on the shipping timeframe. Apologies for creating a new thread for a question that has no doubt already been asked. Many thanks!

Right from Kades himself...


"In the US, we're using UPS Ground and it should be shipping out of Wisconsin. I think we're also able to process around 2k units a day, so it may be a couple days before it gets shipped and then, depending on your proximity to Wisconsin, I'd expect it between 2 days and 2 weeks. Which is quite the spread, but I'd rather manage expectations rather than disappoint anyone."

Their ambition is to get 2,000 shipped a day, so they're hoping to get everything out in the course of about a week.

As far as how long it'll take before things arrive, I believe they're shipping from Wisconsin, so proximity to Wisconsin will be a determining factor there.

I . . . think I read packages are shipping via USPS, but please don't quote me on that one.

Edit: too slow . . .

I believe that they typed UPS Ground. One question, UPS charges at the door for "Broker Fees". I was charged $10.05 for Customs and taxes when I checked out. Will that void UPS from charging their brokerage fee as I've already paid that ( 10.05 works our two roughly $14 Canadian ).

Thank you very much for the update! Well I live in Alaska so imagine I'll be closer to the 2 weeks end of that spectrum. It's all good though. Looking forward to playing with my daughter for her birthday, she's turning 9 and got really excited by the Watch it Played how to's.

I was charged about 16 for taxes/duties. Huh.

Yes, it should. If it doesn't, please contact our player support and we'll help you get it sorted with iParcel.

Hi there - there is a huge post on this on the forums - with lots of Canadians posting. Whilst it states that this is coming using iParcel to Canada (which should mean no extra charges), many of us are waiting to see if we do get other charges - but hoping and expecting to not to

"Let's chat about shipping" - sorry do not know how to link to it :-(

Cheers

Different province, different taxes.

I'm guessing $16.53 is for us 13% HST provinces (e.g. Ontario). $10.05 is probably the 5% GST only provinces? God help Atlantic Canada.

Heck, if I knew they were sending from Wisconsin, I might've just drove over and picked it up myself*.


* I don't believe this was a shipping option

Actually I'm on the Eastern side of Iowa, but I still might've made the drive if it was Madison, or the Green Bay area (where I have family).

Then it doesn't make sense. Did anybody else only get charged $10? What's the common denominator? I got charged $16 like everybody else.

By comparison, that's not right either. At 12%, BC should pay a tiny bit less than ON, not over 30% less.

I just played around with the gc duty calculator. The exchange I got for 75 US was just under 99. At that price, Ontario residents should pay 12.86 duty while BC and Manitoba pay 11.86 and QC pays a little over 14. So I'm confused. Seems like Ontario and Quebec overpaid by approximately 25% and others paid about 10% less. I'd like an explanation.

Actually I totally forgot for a second that we paid that in US dollars, so we paid even more....
