“Today, we expand the areas in the world where the Framework Laptop is available. In the near future, the UK and the rest of Europe will be able to use the Framework Marketplace. We are constructing a service and fulfilment centre in Germany to enable quicker shipping on forthcoming Marketplace purchases. Now, laptop orders are shipped directly from Taiwan, which is close to our facility via road. It is now possible to get the Framework Laptop in the US and Canada along with Marketplace accessories like Orange and Grey Bezels and new keyboards in a single transaction to receive free delivery on everything, which will all be fully carbon-offset in a few days from New Jersey stocks.
There are local language keyboards (including English International in ANSI for the Netherlands) and accompanying power adapters available for every country we visit. To make ordering easier in the Netherlands, we introduced support for iDeal and SEPA payment choices in addition to credit and debit cards, and we’ll be extending this to the rest of Europe soon. If you live somewhere we don’t currently cover, registering your interest on our locations page will help us priorities our global rollout.
