Kickstarter Delivery Update
Happy New Year and Happy New Decade! May you have a blessed and “Shady” 2020! We’ve got a lot of great news to share with you in this update. First and foremost, we’re looking forward to shipping the Shady Pets game to you in just a few short weeks. Yah!
1. Production Finishes Next Week. We are using 2 manufacturers; 1 for the game itself and 1 for the Throw Octopus. Both manufacturers have confirmed that production will be completed by next week; January 6-10, 2020 and they will be shipping the units to Hong Kong which is where our Easy Ship warehouse/logistics center is located. All units are being shipped direct to you from this location using HK Air e-Express.
2. Shipping Starts Week of January 13-17. Our initial forecast back in October was January 15, so we’re happy to say we’re still right on track!
- Transit Time (est. 7-14 days), so final delivery should be between January 21-30.
3. International Taxes & Duties: As stated in our Kickstarter campaign, “International Taxes & Duties: If you live outside the USA, you may have to pay tax and duty when the shipment arrives, if applicable. We will be using Easy Ship.” Here’s the approximate tax and duties for our most popular pledge levels (if you ordered add-ons, estimates will be slightly higher).
