Sakura Arms Pledge Manager is Live!
Hey everyone, our Pledge Manager for Sakura Arms is now open! If you backed the Kickstarter, you should soon receive an invitation to the Pledge Manager in your registered Kickstarter Email.
What if I don't see the email yet?
Check your spam folder. If you use Gmail, sometimes your invite will go to your "Promotions" tab. If you still can't find it, search your inbox for "PledgeManager"
Click "Request New Invite"
Enter your email address (the one you pledged with)
Wait at least 10 minutes - then go to your email, open the invite, and click the giant button to confirm all your goodies
There's something wrong with my pledge!
What if I need to change my address?
As long as your items have not been shipped, you can always change your address. Just simply log back in to PledgeManager and make the appropriate change. However, if you change your country, additional shipping costs may apply.
If I have a friend who missed the project, can they still join?
This was done after careful consideration of the costs and benefits.
Sakura Arms isn't planned to deliver until August of next year, and in that time we may discontinue, discount, sell out, or eliminate products from our catalog.
It doesn't make sense for us to keep these products around and on reserve for such huge periods of time, and it creates a danger of us overselling stock or causing logistical issues.
Ultimately, simpler is better. The simpler we keep the project, the sooner we can deliver and the less the chance of errors, complications, and delays.
Shipping in most areas is a bit better than what we anticipated even after adjusting for 2021 rates. Having a fulfillment center in continental Europe means that our EU rates will be quite a bit lower than projected. US Shipping rates are only slightly higher than anticipated. Canadian rates are a bit better than we expected in our chart, as we are moving back to a Canadian fulfillment house rather than fulfilling from the USA.
We're working hard to properly collect and pay the taxes that your duly appointed representative governments require us to collect from you on their behalf. This includes everywhere—Europe, Australia, Canada, and the USA for states that require it (lucky you, Delaware).
Thanks for supporting the project!
Thanks for sticking with us in 2020. Here's looking forward to a great new year!
Ithry will be back with more "Arm Yourself" updates in January! :D
