Thank you for the quick notification from our community questioning the shipping prices. We quickly contacted the supplier to question the pricing and they did identify a bug in the ordering site that affected the calculations of shipping. This error was corrected and the ordering site is back online. The t-shirt store can be accessed from your dashboard after you register for the event.
All those who placed orders have been contacted and informed of the error and the process to correct the shipping rate errors. We appreciate your understanding as we worked through this.
We wish to be seeing you all in person so your t-shirts can be personally handed to you, but unfortunately this year we are unable to. Providing a conference t-shirt was always an important take away and memory from the conference and we did not want this year to be different. This required us to work with a vendor instead of handling shirts ourselves like we have in the past. Shipping internationally is quite expensive and we have made sure the lowest rates for package shipping are being utilized. This does result in a longer transit time but makes the shipping cost more reasonable.
Due to generous offers from our wonderful community members we are looking into local distribution shops for Europe and Asia. Please stand-by for details as we continue research on this option.
