[GB] Unified daughterboard C3
« on: Fri, 17 September 2021, 09:51:48 »
tl;dr at bot

Hi GH

As the IC was quite successful due to many people having the same sourcing issue, I suggest we move onto the GB stage ;)
The GB can be entered following this link: https://forms.gle/A3nGdMF5LPuH9t2BA

What you'll receive

A unified C3 Daughterboard including 6" (120mm) JST cable carefully packaged into an ESD bag.
For more details on what you're purchasing please checkout the git repo here: https://github.com/ai03-2725/Unified-Daughterboard

Pricing

Daughterboard incl cable: 9USD/unit excl. pp fees (5.4% + 0.35EUR) and shipping.
Side note: pricing can drop to 8USD/unit if 50 units are exceeded before I start invoicing. So don't be surprised if your total is less than expected. :)

Shipping options

I ship directly from Belgium (EU). As shipping is quite expensive over here I offer 2 options:

  - Send as a letter: 5USD (not recommended, max 2 units. This option will be scrapped if not enough interest due to MOQ stamps)
  - Send as a package: 10USD (recommended, boards will be better protected and in a box)

Side note: if you're from Belgium/The Netherlands/.. I'll DM you as I might have some better/local/cheaper options for you.

How do you join?

Fill in the google form (https://forms.gle/A3nGdMF5LPuH9t2BA) and fill in the details.

Timeline

- GB closes 26th of September. Invoices will be send out during the week.
- Week of 27 September: orders will be placed and the waiting (+-6 weeks) starts.
- After the 6 weeks I'll need 1 week to pack and ship the orders.
- Your order arrives within 1-3 weeks depending on where you live.

Max (IDEAL) waiting time is around 8-10 weeks from GB end date -> shipping out

Additional details

- The MOQ is set at 30 units. I will not be sending out invoices before I think this MOQ can be reached. If you're getting an invoice, I'm running the GB.
- Everyone gets 48h to pay after receiving their invoice or otherwise the order will be cancelled
- GB's get delayed. Keep this in mind. Not everything is under my control (e.g. clearance at customs,..)
- I also run keeb.studio as a small side project so I know how to ship things. No need to worry about that ;)
- Enjoy your new daughterboard(s) when they arrive :)

TL;DR

What: C3 unified Daughterboard + JST cable
Price: 9usd/unit excl. shipping and fees
Last day to enter: 26th of September
Timeline: 8-10 weeks from GB end date -> shipping out
Where to order: https://forms.gle/A3nGdMF5LPuH9t2BA

I was bracing my self for a lot more then $10 when you said "As shipping is quite expensive over here," lol. I'm not familiar with how EU shipping is, but NA buyers are pretty used to paying $5-15 shipping on pretty much anything, so I think this is extremely reasonable.

If I used DHL for example it would've been around 35EUR.. but great to hear 10USD is reasonable. ;)

I take that as a compliment ;). Let's hope there aren't any unexpected delays!
