Early International Donor, Add Shipping in Extra Donation?


#1

I donated for a weeks supply of soylent before you added the “US only”, so $65 are $10 short of what is needed for international shipping.

Is it best to make an additional donation of $10, or does the soylent team prefere some different method of handling this situation?

I’m sure I am not the only one overseas who was as enthusiastic when the crowdfunding campaign first started.


#2

Did the exact same thing. Anyone who knows?


#3

Ditto, same situation


#4

same here

You could also give us $10 discount for enthusiastic early supporters :smile:
(or just tell us how to pay the additional price)

Great question – we just added a new reward (Int’l Shipping), please contribute the difference between your original pledge and the corresponding international pledge. Sorry for the inconvenience, and I agree it’d be nice if we could just eat the difference as thanks for your early support, but our $$$ man shot that idea down :slight_smile:

Thank you for clearing up the confusion.

EDIT: I don’t know how relevant that is, but shipping for more than 1 week of soylent is more than $10.

I’m not affected, but others may be. Maybe you can handle that case by case, otherwise your list of donation options gets very crowded.

You can contribute any amount greater than $10. For example, if you’d originally purchased a two-month’s supply ($455), you’d want to pledge $70 (as the international price is $525), and select the “International Shipping” reward, so we know the purpose of the contribution. Does that make sense?

Yes. I overlooked that you can change the amount after selecting a category.
