Playdate will be available to ship to the following countries.
- United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands)
- United Kingdom
(We are also investigating the best way to sell Playdates to residents of Malaysia, where our factory is located. If you’re in Malaysia, please fill out this form so we can keep you posted!)
Not on the list?
We want to hear about it. It’s very likely we will add more countries over time. If your region is not on the list, let us know via this survey!
Why just these?
Basically, to avoid biting off more than we can chew. We’re a small crew and we’re planning to offer DDP shipping (delivered duties paid) to avoid surprise import fees. This is surprisingly complicated, especially on the tax side, and we are slowly making our way through lots of rules and regulations. Thanks for your understanding!
What about Shipping Costs?
To prepare for launch day, here’s a rough estimate of shipping costs for each country in our initial list.
This is rough estimated shipping cost for a single Playdate unit. Ordering more items will increase this cost.
- These are general estimates only. Actual final shipping costs, taxes, and duties, will vary depending on your location, and will be calculated at checkout.
- Due to currency exchange rates at the time of purchase and shipment, it is possible that the tax and duties may change, and you may be required to pay more than the amount calculated at checkout.
- Any applicable Tax/VAT, not included here, will be added at checkout.
- Especially if you’re purchasing more than one Playdate, you may need to pay duties, which will also be added at checkout.
Not Including Tax/VAT or Duties
|USA||New York||$13.82 USD|
What about Taxes and Duties?
All international Playdate systems will be shipped Delivered Duties Paid (DDP). This means all necessary taxes, duties, and import fees are pre-paid and calculated at check-out. In theory, this means as your Playdate enters your home country, customs will not hold your Playdate hostage and/or ask you pay any surprise taxes or fees. We really hope it all works as planned! Our international shipping partner Passport will be on-hand to answer any international tracking or tax questions.
