Yes that was a great day to experience in the chat room!
I agree with JaceDK here, (I am also from Denmark).
long email, but just trying to explain why several packages is not always a good solution.
I agree to this and to several posts here! The postal service expenses for handling these packages inDenmark are really annoying....

Thanks to both of you - I now preordered the Bestiary box as well :-)

Just be glad you don't live in Denmark...I'd have been hit for 25% of the value of the parcel + about £20 in clearance fee.
Waiting for my package here in Denmark as well.... this close to Christmas everything seems to be hit by VAT :-/
More or less how I feel...
This... actually kind of disappoints me. I'm not a huge pirate fan, so a pirate-themed AP leaves me a little flat. Not saying it will be bad or anything; given Paizo's overall AP quality, it'll probably wind up being quite good. But much like Legacy of Fire wasn't my thing, this isn't really my thing either. Kudos to all the pirate fans, though. =)

I agree ;-)
You are right, it did.
This order contains the following items:
Which I took as an indication that it would be shipped in one box.

Has anyone tried the pdf on an iphone/handheld yet? I'd like to get the pdf but I'm affraid it won't resize on my iphone and I'd have to read with my magnifying glass.
I have the file on my Iphone, old 3Gs model, and it is readable on it, but it is a bit small. But much easier to read than the normal Paizo books as the format on the pages is single column. For your information I have been reading it using GoodReader...

If you really think that the single package option is a better choice, you can contact customer service immediately after you get the "we're about to ship your subscription" e-mail, and tell them that you'd rather have the more expensive shipping method. (Note that in most cases you've only got a day or two to do this, though!)
Thank you very much! Great service.

yes, thank you for saving me some money ón your end - bit actually I would really really like all my paizo stuff to ship in one package. The handling fee from the toll administration here on each package is much more than i imagine i save on shopping.

I have something similar, 2 items seems to have shipped ( got the PDFs), the last three is pending. On my subscription page it is listed as one package, so a bit odd as well.
One another note, albeit there is a lot of talk about the strange shipping in June and July, but as I have written about a number of times the handling fee for adding VAT and Toll here in Denmark is close to 30 US$ PER package so I would in most cases really like my stuff to ship in just one package no matter the amount of books . Could that perhaps be added as an option somewhere on the subscription page so one could see how much more expensive one large package is versus 2 smaller ones in shipping costs? That would be highly appreciated!!
This is going to be a hot, long summer for overseas subscribers :)
Could someone at Paizo give us any indication, and perhaps prices is possible, if we would can get the entire July shipment to ship in one package to avoid having to pay twice for administrative charges by the VAT office (~30$ for each package in Denmark)?
Also, will our individually ordered Pathfinder fiction book order be automatically overwritten by the subscription copies? I ordered before the subscription was available but added a subscription to that line as well..... but one copy will be sufficient :-)

At a recent conference, Erik Mona mentioned that there were 3 apps being developed as far as I remember... are they going to be released together?
