Worldwide shipping changes
As mentioned in a previous update, we will be reducing the list of countries that we ship to. As we want everyone to be able to buy a V, we do not make these changes lightly. Our experience with the Vs shipped so far has taught us a lot about the way different countries handle import and shipping. Based on our findings, as of Tuesday, April 3rd we will no longer accept new orders from the countries listed below:
The following countries will be removed from our international store. The EU store remains unaffected.
A Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Anguilla, Antigua And Barbuda, Armenia, Aruba, Azerbaijan

This does not mean we will never sell to these countries again: we simply do not offer the possibility at this time. Also, everyone from these countries who has already placed an order will still receive their V, and we will continue to provide support to existing buyers from all over the world.
Some people who received their V in the last IndieGoGo shipments were missing accessories, and we apologize once more for this inconvenience! At this point, all missing accessories have been shipped out. Some people have already received theirs, others should get tracking numbers some time early next week.
It’s Easter weekend! To those who celebrate: happy Easter weekend! To those who don’t celebrate: happy regular weekend!
