It looks like it might be around 35-40 dollars US


Sounds reasonable.  So one with Browns to Finland, please. :smile:

I've sent another email out to the person who will procure these keyboards for us to see how much he can send per order. I will let you know what his answer is to that question, but it seems the price won't get any cheaper than what I listed it (the shipping is lowest-price and the manufacture won't go lower unless we buy a much larger amount).

So, this is how it will go:

I will assess a manufacturers price + shipping price to the US fee for the keyboards, and you will pay me that first. I will ensure I have your order exactly right, so no worries there. Once I receive the keyboards to my house in Maryland, USA, I will update the buy thread I will make with exact shipping prices (I will have to have the keyboards in my possession so I can weigh them separately first) so we're not stuck playing the guessing game.

If anyone has a better idea of how I should proceed with payment please let me know!

Also, is Paypal okay for everyone or are Amazon payments better? Seeing as there's Europeans interested in the keyboards I'm assuming Paypal is the way to go (I don't want to use both, I want just one of the two).

I can't give any updates unless I get any :/ My guy in Hong Kong has exams now so it'll be a bit before he can let me know for sure. He said the good price discount can be reached at 20 keyboards, so we gotta hit that and we're good.

Just to clarify, it's 100 shipped within CONUS? When can we expect delivery given everything goes smoothly?

That I can't give until I know my guy has received the keyboards :/

I'll start the group buy thread Monday night, and I'll work out the detail over the course of a week or two until we get a 20 keyboard order at the least.

It might end up being a bit more expensive. I just emailed the guy who's sourcing these to see what we can do with 15 keyboards...

I'm waiting to hear back on any possible price changes and then I will start the group buy thread.

The group buy thread will work as such:

I will take payment in the form of Paypal, and the price WILL change. The $100 cost was my best estimate, but the actual cost for CONUS will be $103 ($80 from manu + $13 per unit @ 20 units from HK + $9.34 shipping from my house to CONUS). Canada is ~$5-$10 more than domestic, so I'm thinking a price of $110 will cover Canada.

Those of you in Europe will probably have to wait several weeks, and will probably be looking at around a $30-$40 postage price.

Is this really necessary? I paid ~$97 to have my Noppoo Choc Mini with browns shipped to the US, and it arrived within 3 weeks... and that was right before Chinese Lunar New Year. $103 doesn't really sound like a good deal unless you're DHLing them over or something.

The problem lies in getting them shipped in one large package to save money, to a residential address. From there they will be shipped to another residential address. You probably ordered from Taobao, right? As I said somewhere else, we won't get the amount of keyboards Taobao sellers get, so I can't guarantee a lower price than Taobao.

As I said, the prices WILL change. I update them whenever I learn of a difference.

I said I'd put up the new thread when I heard back from the person who I will source the keyboards from :wink:

I don't want to put up false prices for you guys! I want to know a near-definite price to post so I don't charge people random prices and then have to either ask for you to pay me a little more or to issue refunds to everyone.

Ain't no thang :p The guy I'm sourcing this from (aminglau @ ebay) and I are both students, so it's sometimes days between when we can respond to emails from eachother. I emailed him yest early afternoon and I'm still waiting to hear back from him. As soon as he gives me the all-clear I'll start the buy!

I have just received word: the blues are sold out at the manufacturer. We managed to grab 25 browns and 5 blacks before the stock was bought up again. These are some HOT keyboards in china!

TO ALL THOSE WHO WANTED BLUES: I cannot provide them to you. It's either blacks or browns, unfortunately. If you would like to change your decision to brown or black or remove yourself from the group buy entirely please post here.

I will start this group buy TOMORROW. I want to give any geekhack members that are still on the fence (or that chose blues) an extra night to think before I start the payment process. The prices seem to be sitting at $103 for CONUS and $110 for Canada/AK/HI.

ALL those who live outside of North America (i.e. Europe) please reconfirm with me you will be OKAY with paying some $35-$45 for shipping the package to you. I don't want the keyboard to get to my house and you to not want it anymore due to high shipping...I can't afford to pay for these boards out of pocket and I don't need an extra board lying around!
