New LotFP Webstore Shipping Policy

'allo all...

LotFP's lifeblood is customers ordering directly from us. And I say "us," because while officially LotFP is just me, the fact is that every author and artist and graphic designer I work with is paid out of the money you spend on LotFP books and PDFs.

But postage rates rise every year (sometimes twice a year!) and that makes mail-order more and more difficult to afford for our customers, especially as LotFP's catalog grows and we add more hardcovers to the production schedule. I say enough is enough.

As of right now LotFP is capping shipping rates.

Nobody will pay more than 10€ for Economy/second class shipping. I'll eat any remaining cost in the hopes that customers will add more books to an order knowing that doing so won't cost them a penny more in shipping. We can both win that way. (There is a maximum weight of 1900g worth of stuff that can be put into this class of shipping, over that and it becomes a parcel.)

Priority/First class shipping will be capped at 20€ for EU customers and 25€ for non-EU customers. Non-EU customers' rates for tracked shipping and large parcels will be capped at 25€.

Shipping to Finnish addresses remains free.

If you see something in the store that's not consistent with the new policy, let me know at lotfp@lotfp.com so I can get it fixed.

And please spread the word if you're so inclined.

LotFP's 2014 Convention Schedule

The conventions I'm hitting for the rest of this year:

May 30 - June 1
UK Games Expo in Birmingham, England.

June 13 - 15
NordCon in Hamburg, Germany

July 25 - 27
Ropecon in Espoo, Finland

September 13 - 14
Tracon in Tampere, Finland

(Unconfirmed December Date)
Dragonmeet in London, England

I'll have a vendor table at each of these events, so you can come say hi, spend money, chat, rant at me for my late crowdfunding stuff, whatever.

Also looking for other European conventions (or non-European, if you're willing to pay airfare. :P) for August, October, and November...
