We would love to hear about any and all updates to shipping that has to do with Australia. Have you received an email about shipping and live in Australia? If so please let us know here!!!

Thu 24th:
They will go out mostly in order. We are just running a few smaller batches on a per region basis to make sure everything is working good before we automate things.

We'll have more batches to all regions following shortly. Please just relax. Thanks.

Sun 20th:

Yes, we already have stock of DK2 in multiple distribution centers around the world. We are currently waiting for the software to become stable, and then we can immediately start shipping to customers.

Here's hoping we hear something soon.

P.S - Anyone know what city the distribution center is in?

So almost 400 units shipping next week!

Does anyone have any idea of what 'order date' that will likely cover?

I have heard that people in NZ need to chase their package through customs and pay tax before delivery. Is this the experience of the Aus purchasers?

If so how much GST do we need to pay? I'm assuming the stock has already landed in Aus when we get shipping notices as it sounds like people receive them within 3-5 business days.

I'm glad to hear that last weeks shipment seems to be getting delivered now 🙂
DK2 Order: Destination: Queensland, Australia Date: Apr 1, 2014 07:01 AM PDT Status: DELIVERED 9:30am Sep 15

We already paid GST when we ordered - Oculus is trading as a registered business in Australia so we're doing business with them.

Regardless, even if they weren't the GST import threshold is $1000.

Our kiwi friends are paying GST as their threshold is something like $60.

Now with the bigger shipment amounts, we should be seeing more time coverage of orders. Although, I have a sneaky suspicion I will be waiting until the end of the year or something. Since I ordered July 30th. I remember on the order it was an expected delivery date of September, but seeing that people from March are only JUST getting their orders....it doesn't instill hope for getting it in September.
BUT we shall see what happens I suppose. It gives me more time to prototype game ideas in UE4 and test with DK1.
