I love this site, it lets me make as many boardgames that I want and that are pretty good quality as well. The only problem is that I live in Canada and the shipping is close to $40 US. I wish that there was a way to make it a bit cheaper because I would actually like to buy some of the games that I made.
Wow, thanks for the kind words! We definitely understand the high cost of shipping internationally. We're actually in talks with several providers right now looking for a better solution that will be more cost efficient. We don't have any final details at this point but we've heard some promising things from our initial conversation. We'll obviously announce any new happenings with shipping on our http://news.thegamecrafter.com blog as well as our social media channels. Thanks!
It always amazes me that I can ship something clear across the USA for $10, but to ship it north 100 miles into Canada suddenly costs $27 for the same package ... ... but for a few dollars more I can ship it all the way to Australia!
Never makes sense ... I guess it is not supposed to ....
We totally agree. It seems crazy! Although shipping to Australia is typically $40+ so Canada is still quite a bit cheaper.
We're still working with vendors on a better solution.. Fingers crossed! Stay tuned. :)
I am a canuck too and love using the TGC platform, and for having myself bought stuff from the site, I agree that it would be great to see improvements in international shipping prices.
Because most game developpers have the best reach for their fledgling product in their own local areas, with the people they directly interact with, I suspect that game creators from abroad that publish on TGC would see their sales increase if shipping rates diminished.
Wow, honestly thats the most comments on any review I've ever made
But it's nice to know that you guys are actually working on it and you actually care about the people who use your product (unlike most other products)
