Why do some of the SUPER EARLY BIRD rewards have lower international shipping?
I'll be the first to admit that I had no idea how well received the Gym Gekko was going to be internationally. Based on some great feedback, I added the shipping worldwide option. However, in my excitement I set the shipping costs too high. I have adjusted all international shipping costs, lowering it where needed. In some cases, I had to create new rewards in order to change it. If you were one of the people that pledged even though the international shipping costs were high, feel free to switch to one of the new rewards. If you're having any issues with this, please message me and I'll help you out. Here are the new shipping costs: 1 Gym Gekko towel: $9 (Canada), $12 (Rest of the World) 2 Gym Gekko towels: $10 (Canada), $14 (Rest of the World) 3 Gym Gekko towels: $11 (Canada), $16 (Rest of the World) 4 Gym Gekko towels: $12 (Canada), $18 (Rest of the World) Last updated: Fri, Aug 28 2015 3:28 pm EDT
Is international shipping kind of on the high side?
Compared with UPS, FedEx, and DHL, USPS was the cheapest option for shipping internationally. I went with them and those are the shipping costs you see for the rewards. If you want to calculate the shipping costs yourself each towel is 5 oz in weight. Last updated: Fri, Aug 28 2015 3:32 pm EDT
How durable are these towels?
I've washed them with other dark colors, then put the in the dryer on the low-heat setting. They come out looking great, with all the silicone dots intact. Last updated: Fri, Aug 28 2015 3:32 pm EDT
How absorbent is the towel?
It was able to handle about 8 oz of water in an absorbency test, which is the same amount that's in a small can of Red Bull. That's a lot of sweat! Last updated: Fri, Sep 4 2015 10:09 am EDT
What is BackerKit?
BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!
The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.
How does BackerKit work?
After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.
How do I update my shipping address?
BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.
I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?
As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
Why can’t I log into my account?
Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.
I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?
The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.
Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.
To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.
When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?
That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.
Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?
This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
