Hi there,

I would like to pledge at the $60 level but KS is charging me an extra $25 (for $85 total) to ship to USA.

Originally I was at the $80 level which charged me $0 for shipping to USA.

Is there a discrepancy between the shipping costs at the pledge levels?

That was a mistake they made when they set up the kickstarter, and it couldn't be changed. Basically you are going to pay for shipping, but they are going to be paying $10 worth of shipping for you. I'm assuming once the pledge manager rolls out it will take care of the confusion. I am expecting to pay $10-15 for shipping, so if you backed the game and put down $25 for shipping, you would get $10 back if shipping ended up being $15.

It's confusing as hell, and they've already said they won't be doing shipping like this again

In the comments for the campaign they have said that they want to go to print as soon as possible after funding, so it is unlikely they will be using a Pledge Manager. So if you want the game, back it for full price now.

Not sure how they're going to handle collecting additional shipping costs without a Pledge Manager though. And don't get me started on the whole "refunding every international backer $10+" thing - they're currently just throwing over $1,000 in the garbage by doing that. But there's nothing they can do about it now.

Yeah that part sure is confusing to me.
