We posted a deal last Thursday, just wanted to post something in followup to that.
Firstly, thank you to everyone who participated, whether you bought something or you just had a browse. Much appreciated. We learnt a lot about our system's capabilities, what we were doing well and where we could improve.
There were a small number of orders which slipped pass our dispatch team on Friday, they are being prepared for postage today. To anyone in this situation, I'd like to apologise for the delay.
To everyone else, your orders should start to arrive today through to Wednesday / Thursday, depending on where you live. If there is any problems with your order (missing items, wrong items, etc.) please contact us as soon as possible: [email protected], so we can rectify it.
Also, all pick-up orders are now ready for pick up. If you did not receive a confirmation, please check your junk mail tab or just drop us an e-mail with your order number.
It's fair to say that we weren't quite expecting the response we got for these nifty little things. We reduced the price to the bare minimum we could manage due to the (completely understandable) consternation about the postage on these things compared to their actual price. The high postage is because they must be sent as a parcel since they are too big to be sent as anything else. At MechKB, we round our postage up to the nearest dollar, apart from that, we do not make money on our postage.
To give you an idea of how lowly these samplers were priced, a bulk pack of 110 Cherry switches usually retails for USD$50, that's roughly 55 cents per switch in Australian dollars, after GST and the Deck Cherry sampler has four of them. That's not to say anything about the LEDs, PCB or assembly!
It's unlikely we can be that generous again, so for all those who snagged a sampler for $3, congrats! :)
Definitely! Give us a moment to catch our breath though. We might have something before the end of the month just for those who have played with the sampler and have decided on what switch they would like. If we do, we'll be sure to post it here :)
