75% of the box is black.

25% is white.

In other words your box is reverse racism.

In my neighborhood they call themselves something different.

if i can give an advice to you (sixty), it would be less expensive for non german customers to ask taiwan to directly use DHL to send them their keyboard. ( as it cost the same from taiwan to europe )

Sadly this is not possible. VorTex can not deal with direct shipments to customers and this way people would have to pay VAT individually. The prices I am offering already includes all VAT charges. So there is no risk for customers, unlike when ordering individually.

The smaller the package is, the less likely end customers would have to pay VAT. Shipped using Hong Kong dhl woudl at most cost 100 euros for : "Keyboard + shipping to the whole europe".

This rule does not really apply in Germany, customs will pretty much "bust" things completely on random. Parcel size, gift option or anything else has absolutely no effect, sadly.

Either way, this is not possible. I can only offer the distributed shipping from Germany, as drop shipping is not an option.

Vortex with not deal with end users. The only way for them to deal with you is for you to buy in bulk, which is exactly what sixty is doing.

I'm not necessary talking about vortex. You can still buy them from Chinese distributor and it's still cheaper.

I will not change the way this is setup at the risk of users paying VAT, just so that some people might save 3 or 4 Euros in the end. If people were to order separately, it would not be much of a group buy anymore and everyone could just be ordering on their own.

The prices right now are calculated based on the distribution price and roughly include VAT and import fees, shipping from Taiwan to Europe plus a little buffer to handle fuckups (which will happen looking at the Poker MO). If anyone wishes to instead order from eBay at their own risk of paying VAT and/or import fees, they are free to do so, just as with the Poker previously.

All that aside, we have a deal with Vortex to carry out their distribution here in Europe and I will not dishonor it by going through a third party supplier.

Closing this order on Wednesday. If you still wish to change your order, inform your friends, perform the dark ritual on me, please do all of that before then.

If you can get the different LED colours, I would like to change my order to:

1 x Blue LEDs w/ brown switches
1 x White keycap set

If not then as per my first post.

Thanks for arranging this all, Sixty.
