Kickstarter has literally kicked off in the US but so far it has failed to reach any other countries as of yet, but that is all soon to end as the service will be hitting the UK this Autumn which was revealed via a tweet from the service, the reasoning for why the service has not hit the UK yet is due to the fact that Amazon Payments is only available to those with a US mailing address and bank account, that doesn’t seem to be a problem anymore which could either mean that Amazon Payments is also coming to the UK or they are using a different service, we should know more soon however.
People in the UK will be able to launch projects on Kickstarter starting this autumn! More info soon! <3 <3 <3
