Hey everyone, it looks like other retailers have lowered their pricing on the Ryos TKL Pro in response to this drop. That’s awesome for the community and we are always happy to see that. However, it looks like our pricing on the Ryos MK Pro is still very competitive. So we are highlighting that as the main offer.

Unfortunately your shipping price tag doesn't make you "competitive" anymore.
$55.00USD to ship this item to where I live is a joke. Might as well buy it from Newegg or Ebay direct due to charging the same price when it comes to shipping, hence MD isn't good value anymore.
Amazing how you lot have fallen down especially when it comes to sending freight around the world. All your Competitors suddenly look good again to purchase from ; )

Sadly these keyboards are pretty heavy so international rates are high. We are constantly working on delivering better rates to the community but it is a process.

Received my Realforce 55g TKL from you lot for only $10.35USD shipped, what gives?
It's not a light weight keyboard at all, yet you are saying that the Roccat TKL is somehow 5 or 10 kilos in weight due to currently charging now $55.37USD?
Time to explain why some items are shipped dirt cheap and others you rape the customer in charges, not fair if you are using the same shipper which I know is DHL. Maybe you've seen how certain dodgy Ebay sellers charge large amounts in shipping and pocketing the extra profits for themselves.

Why do you keep coming to Massdrop if their prices and options are always awful?

Shipping costs have varied so much, why is that?
Suppose asking these important questions never really clicked with the likes of you, due to simple minded cretins who would rather be permanent MD felchers instead.
ALWAYS ask the questions and demand an answer, that is what this area is for instead of always sticking your tongue into their arses and telling everyone here, it tastes good, .....wake up sunshine ; )

I just don't go places that I hate. Also the shipping I'm shown is free. Sorry you have to pay customs :^)

The question I asked, is too the Group Buy organizer and not to some idiot monkey who knows nothing about shipping costings (where I live, we don't pay any customs).
As I provided evidence above relating to a previous purchase from here, why the HUGE price discrepancy (well over 450% price increase)?
You can keep on being MD's personal arse-lick I don't care but my question has been aimed at MD, hence I'm still waiting for their response (or their lack of).

If Massdrop has a "public" Q&A section I am sure Elrick would ask in there instead of thread crapping. Regardless the question is still valid because it directly relates to the product. The TKL realforce weighs 1.2kg and the Roccat weighs 1.28kg. That's 450% price increase in shipping for an extra 6.67% weight.
Secondly I am with Elrick on this one, except for the name callings, we both partook in a great number of drops; and thanks to Elrick I also noticed irregular shipping costs as well.
All and all, we work hard to earn money and we just want a clear cut answer to ensure that our hard earned cash is invested in the right place

Sup Elrick.
Shipping cost is all over the place because of the different "tiers" they have set up. For example, rather than saying every kilo you ship is $X they just say the first kilo is $X, then 1.0001 kg up to 1.999 kg is $Y, and so forth. That jump from tier 1 to tier 2 to tier 3 is very rarely linear either. Sometimes it will be double, sometimes it's just a few more dollars. Then on top of that they add costs depending on box dimensions. So even though the Realforce is a pretty heavy board, it's a rather compact box and ships for the lower price. The Roccat has some unique dimensions and results in a big ass box, which the shipper is more than happy to charge for.
I'm not 100% on what the actual numbers are for each of these shipping tiers and have no idea how they decide these costs, but this is how very similar things get wildly different shipping prices on our end. You add just a little weight and double the volume of space it takes up, boom. Welcome to your new much higher ship cost.

"Hi! I'm Elrick, a rude jerk who hides my misanthropy behind 'keeping it real' and 'being honest', mostly because I can't seem to understand that a fair question, asked politely, is vastly more likely to get a reply than a post full of digital confrontation and profanity."
Don't like it here? Leave. You might as well, since you have no need for a nice keyboard when you clearly don't know how to write.
