Hi I tried to pay today and yesterday but it would come up with, (The attempt to charge your pledge did not succeed. The reason given was: Your card was declined. This transaction requires authentication.) Is anyone else having this problem or just me. I had been to bank today talked over 30 minutes trying sort it out they said it is recognised transfer but needs authentication from retailer not my bank they said so I don't know what to do now I'll try it again but I don't think it will work sorry to mess you around I did not mean to
Project Update: TOUR FUNDED! THANK YOU!!!
I am sitting here stunned.
I'm able to complete one of my life and career goals thanks to all of you!
WE ARE GOING ON TOUR IN JAPAN!!!
This is incredible. I will make you all proud.
But it's not over yet. There's one more day, so we're going to keep aiming higher. If you haven't already joined in, there's still time to get some ultra unique merch and experiences if you want it. And if we reach 15K we can add another city to the tour. But that's just icing on the cake now! Know that I'm beyond appreciative for all you've done for me.
We'll be doing a celebration live stream on YouTube tonight (Saturday) at 10:30pm GMT. So please do come and join us for that!
- Shao Dow
Project Update: Funded! What Happens Next???
Thank you all again for the tremendous support to get us over the finish line!
Shao Dow is beyond elated and incredibly grateful.
Here's what happens next:
- BackerKit will spend two weeks collecting your funds. Please be on the look out for emails from them!
- We can see that BackerKit is struggling to collect payments from some of you. This kind of thing happens frequently, we are in contact with them to help sort this out. Please let us know in a message, or through the comments below if this is happening to you so we can better help.
- After the two weeks, we will begin writing the Backer Survey which will allow you to choose all your options for your rewards, such as T-Shirt size and the name you want to put on the back of it! For those of you who have pledged to have a character in Shao Dow's upcoming manga, we will also contact you to discuss that!
- The Backer Survey will ask for your shipping information but you will be able to change your address after submitting it. So don't worry if you move in the coming months!
- You will not be charged for shipping immediately. We will not charge you until we actually have the merch on the way, ready to send to you.
Please let us know if you have any other questions at any time!
Deren and the Shao Team!
Project Update: CRAZY 88%! Let's GOOOOOOO.
Soon, you'll be hearing more info from Shao dow himself via whichever Social Media Platform you follow him on: we'll be doing a live stream to countdown to the end of the campaign and (hopefully!) celebrate with everyone when it gets funded! Stay tuned!
