Because there was no information about shipping costs outside of the package, the customs did some guesswork and added $9 for shipping. For packages with a lower value than $62 I don't have to pay VAT. But now with the total of $55 + $9= $64, the value of my package is higher than $62 and I have to pay VAT ($6) + handling fee($18) = $24.

    I can't prove the shipping costs, because the included "Commercial Invoice" shows "Total $55", the customs declaration on the package shows "Total $55", kickstarter shows $60 but not why they have added $5 to the $55 reward and the credit card shows "Total $60".
    Send an email to me directly. I can provide you with a commercial invoice that include shipping.

    Did get a notification on saturday and picked up one of each (T3.5 and T3.6) yesterday at my local post office near Cologne, Germany. Had to pay 8,52€ customs fee.

    My Teensy 3.6's arrived October 14th in Montreal (Canada), without any issues or hassle (delivered by Canada Post). Thank you! I look forward to experimenting with them!
    Cheers,
    Bill

    @Paul, If you do, pls. take a look at the errata, before Nothing dramatic, but useful to know.
    But it works good (at the moment as webradio).

    I'm still planning v0.2 with the fixes, more capabilities, and easier to solder.

    Shipping: I'm still waiting... getting a bit nervous, if it arrives..

    Mine arrived in the UK last week whilst I was away.

    Paid import duties, but then had to pay the same again for the postal service to handle the import duties as UPS do not cover that.
    Added 55% to the cost of purchase. I guess thats why the UPS cost is so cheap, they do nothing,

    One other note. If I had not got back today, and gone straight down to pick the packet up, apparently it would have been returned to sender tomorrow.

    Living in South Germany, my Teensy 3.6 arrived last week, must have been around 24 October i think - no import duties or the likes to pay.

    Still nothing has arrived here in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Has anyone in Holland gotten theirs yet? My last UPS update was from almost a month ago:

    Fontana, CA, United States 10/03/2016 8:00 P.M. Package transferred to post office

    Nothing since then....

    Hi. First I would like to thank Paul for his fast actions in completing the pledges in such a short amount of time. This should be the fastest kickstarter campaign that I have ever participated.
    Until now I still have not received the package. I have not received any calls or letters from customs and post office about the package. Since there are no tracking no. there is no way I will get any feedback from the German Post about the status of the package. Maybe PRJC can contact UPS and inquire about the situation? Thank you.

    I'm still waiting for mine in the UK. Seems just about everyone else had had theirs.

    I received an email on 27th September with tracking number 822070826900022703 and last tracking shows 3rd October - a month ago.

    Really frustrating as it seems I could have already had them some time ago as they are now available "ex-stock" from some local UK web sites.

    Is anyone else in the UK still waiting?

    UPS states side seem to have dumped the packages onto US postal service,
    who snail mailed them the the UK, and dumped them into the UK postal system,

    UK postal system seems to have then decide / decide not to add customs / import duty and to then add their 12 dollars to the cost for the privilege .

    Then it will get sent to your local sorting office , who will ask you for the extra money..

    All done on snail mail, slowest / cheapest shipping rates,
    so a month is not to bad

    but can understand your frustration,

    UKTechguy, I'm in the UK and still waiting too. Can't find my email from when it was shipped so can't check the limited tracking either.

    Well at least I am not alone then - still nothing today (4th Nov) but mystery that other UK buyers had theirs over a fortnight ago.

    Paul just messaged me on Kickstarter - apparently mine got returned to sender as a refused delivery!! It never even made it to me to be able to refuse it so goodness only knows how that happened (although I can guess...).

    Congratulations Frank! So different from the Beta shipments where because of time zones you got yours hours before me - and because of Proximity - I had my KS units about 6 weeks ago? 19% sounds like a lot
