Shipping tokens will be issued per frequency, and per region, with shipping costs varying according to region/country.

Counterparty Improvement Proposals (CIPs)

CIPs exist to give the development and user community a voice in the future of Counterparty features. More info can be found at  A couple of notable updates:

Reset Token & Divisibility Statuses (CIP-0003) is an improvement that allows owners of tokens to reset the issuance and divisibility if the asset owner holds all of the supply. It has now achieved 100% of its funding goal and will be included in the next release

Oracled Dispensers (CIP-0024) are imminent in the next release. These are dispensers/vending machines where you will be able to sell tokens for BTC, but price items in fiat (i.e. sell a card for $10 regardless of price of BTC)
