Apparently the delay caused by Amazon Payments account was a good thing. I met with a number of people and got some great feedback on the Kickstarter rewards we were offering.
So I went from having 14 different complicated, gimmicky, and time consuming rewards to just 9 simple rewards that are more manageable.
One thing I didn't think about was using my UX/UI design and my partner's startup business experience to offer consulting sessions as rewards.
Now all the rewards sound much more relevant and have a little more substance than having bunch of meetups, parties, dinners, etc.
