Since I just got a whammy of a tax refund, I upped my pledge to the $120 level!
The only worry is that I’m using a prepaid card and if backerkit is subject to sales tax there might not be enough there to cover it depending on what happens to the Canadian dollar before July 31st. I’m not sure if backerkit legally counts as a purchase or a donation, or if Canada even charges sales tax for online payments to another country… I can’t seem to find any info about this on the government’s various websites.
So basically, if something does happen when the time for payment comes, I should be able to find a way to fix it within a few days. Don’t write me off. 😛April 18, 2016 at 3:33 am #7195CDN_MerlinKickstarter BackerTopics: 15
My 150 pledge ended up costing 220 after conversion to US funds.April 18, 2016 at 10:32 am #7196
Yeah, and this $91 addon ends up being $118 at the time I made it.
But, judging from Google’s currency converter at least, CAD might be slowly starting to go up or at least plateau now so maybe when the card actually gets charged it won’t be quite so much. 😀
The sales tax thing is confusing because I know that Steam isn’t subject to sales tax in Canada but buying music plugins from Image-Line is. I really have no idea how it works. Honestly I wouldn’t bother at all except I really want that editor documentation. 😛April 19, 2016 at 11:32 am #7261Cathy SchneiderOverload TeamTopics: 67
Wow, thanks for the upped pledge! Just FYI, BackerKit is not subject to sales tax. Also, if the date you are charged becomes a big concern, using PayPal charges the card immediately.April 19, 2016 at 2:24 pm #7270
If there’s no sales tax then it won’t matter.
Thanks for the info. 😀May 4, 2016 at 12:22 pm #7473DarkwingDivaKickstarter BackerTopics: 29
How did you up your pledge? I want to do the same thing but I can’t find anywhere that lets me. I’d hate to cancel and reorder (at the higher level) if there is something I’m missing. I’ve tried looking at all the information I could, but the most I find is to go to the add-ons portion of backerkit and select to up the pledge there, but I literally can’t see it anywhere.
