    International Shipping Question

    Hi,

    Can you please give me some advice regarding international shipping?
    I am getting ready to launch my first product on Indiegogo.
    It weighs about 3 lbs.

    I am offering free US shipping in addition to the Early Bird rates, lots of discounts.
    I am extremely confused about the international shipping.
    The rate would be approx. $50 worldwide, according to my research.
    Should I offer a discount on international shipping rates, too?

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    Ultimately, the base cost and shipping should be considered in total. Just decide how much you want to discount in total

    Is your product made in the US? If yes, try to find a fulfillment center based in the US with international Shipping expertise. Then get in touch with them to fulfill your whole campaign, national & international. Since you work with volume here, you will get a much better rate going thru one company instead of fulfilling everything yourself.

    If your product is manufactured oversea. Do the same thing :-) .... we work with a fulfillment center based in Hong Kong and our international shipping rates are very close to domestic rates...

    Hope that helps. The Point is to have everything done out of one hand....

    Hi, how is your project on Indiegogo, under proceeding or funded?
    We thought the shipping rate 50$ is the service by Express, right?
    Due to the backers on Indiegogo come from different countries, some products are not suggested to ship by Express, but by some direct line or post service.

    Express Service
    1. Fast delivery with high price.
    2. Some extra fee may occur, such as remote area fee, address amendment fee, returning fee etc.
    3. If ship by Express, a part of countries may need the receiver to help to offer paperwork and proceed the Custom Clearance, and it may need to pay the Duty and Tax.

    Are they <made in China> product?

    It's EXPENSIVE! LOL.. I looked into this for rewards and couldn't offer it since I wasn't looking at a huge budget! I'll have to look at the options here!

    Example: US - Germany is 204.87 and that's for one autographed novel.
