More Control Over When Your 3D Prints Are Delivered

Duann, great news, but ONLY if you live in the US. There is no sign on their UK website of them having introduced the service on this side of the Atlantic.

ah, hopefully they will roll this out throughout the world.

Cool, always good to have more control.

Any plans to have alternate shipping options with UPS? ie less expensive shipping (but a longer shipping time) for those of us currently having to pay $20 for shipping alone (like Australia)

Most of my orders arent needed super fast, so I dont mind waiting if it means I dont have to fork out $20 for shipping alone. Im sure many others agree. Would be interesting to know if you guys have looked into it at all, or plan to at some stage.

Yippee! More things UPS will charge us for!

My last two shipments to Canada have had a $10 brokerage fee added to them by UPS. With 13% taxes on the value of the item, shipping and the brokerage fee plus duty I had to pay the driver over $14 when the last package was delivered.

I'd also like the option of a cheaper (slower if necessary) shipping method; $21+ per shipment adds up fast.

It is on our wish list.. We will let you know when it is possible.
