As the production has been started, preordering has now also started!

As soon as I get an exact date from the production facility, I'll let you know - but it should be around December 2018.

 

Price is around 35 EUR (without VAT), but you can get a discount ordering 2 - 4 and an even higher discount if you order 5 or more.

 

You can preorder here:

You're welcome the share the word, of course :)

I got your email notification today that they were in stock so I went to order one, but the shipping to Canada was going to be $52 CAD ($40.79 USD)! :-( Do you have any Canadian or US distributors?

I have been quoted $40.79 for shipping for 2 to Hawaii. Any chance of US or Canadian distributors as the shipping is more cost than a unit.

Yes, I'm having the same issue. The shipping is more than the unit (approx $40 to USA).

I'm also getting similar results.  Limiting shipping to FedEx and UPS is a bad idea for international shipping - much better to offer Deutsche Post.  Apart from the high shipping cost, courier companies such as FedEx and UPS are well know for ripping people off with brokerage fees which can often be as much as, and sometimes more than, the cost of the item purchased.  The lower cost FedEx service that is offered clearly falls into this category and would mean that purchasing just one of these adapters would cost me around CA$53 (adapter) + CA$53 (shipping) + ~CA$20 (brokerage) = CA$125 minimum and excluding sales tax.  Sorry, but that is just plain crazy and no way I'd spend that for one of these adapters despite how much I'd like to buy them.

 

I really think you need a North American distributor for these.

 

In fact, I'm sure that using Deutsche post and only charging the actual shipping cost would be the solution.

I just preordered one of these myself and it was about 45 usd shipped.  I'm pretty anxious to try this out and might consider being a distributor here in the United States once I can fully test one of these suckers! :)

I went back in and there is a new shipping option that is much more reasonable. My total came to $87 and change for two shipped to Hawaii.

I selected Warenpost Int'l for my shipping option.

BTW: In case anyone who ordered only had expensive shipping services available: I now also added untracked shipping via postal mail. This is slower, but a lot cheaper (it does cost 3,70 EUR worldwide!)

Let me know if you'd like to switch to the cheaper shipping costs.

 

I initially forgot to add that shipping method - that's why it was so expensive for you guys.

Sorry about that!

 

But of course, any distributors are welcome :D

We chatted a while back briefly about US distribution.  I would like to test one first and put it through its paces first before I start selling them, which I'm sure you can understand. :)

Sure, I still got a few prototypes here. PM me your address and I'll send one to you.

I just ordered one as well but, alas, it may ultimately prove to be somewhat useless (to me that is) if the ColecoVision Phoenix Kickstarter funds (I am on that list too) http://kck.st/2ynKCVn

Worse case would be to sell your stock CV with the adapter after your Phoenix arrives.

I plan on keeping mine, but it will not get as much use after the Phoenix arrives.

You don't have to pay that much for shipping. Only if you opt for UPS or FedEx. There is a roughly $5 USD option for postal shipping. Slower and no tracking, but much more reasonable.

I just ordered three, although yes, the german tracked postage is a strangler. Hope they don't get lost in the mail, cuz I used the $7 one.
