What are the typical breakpoints for units sold in regards to price reductions for SA?

I would love to know that as well. Nile alphas, sand mods, and novelties exceed the MOQ by a large margin.

Here’s Carbon R2
https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/gmk-carbon-custom-keycap-set/FP/thlX0KGvSYSd8bhs9ftQ_community%20(1).jpg

50, 100, 150, 250, 500, 1000 back in the day. Pricing at 500 MOQ would cover TKL for under 100.

Thanks for this! I don't have access to the cost prices as it was all handled by the vendor, so I'm afraid I don't have any further details to add.

This is pretty disingenuous as SA Carbon R2 ran 4 years ago.... a closer approximation would be Carbon R3 which sold much lower quantities. Also the picture you link to is for the GMK base kit (it's even in the link 'massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/gmk-carbon-custom-keycap-set/FP/thlX0KGvSYSd8bhs9ftQ_community%20(1).jpg')

Another example could have been Skyriter (which was bought out by NK_) https://postimg.cc/1VhGHYpt

At least the pricing for this set wasn't like SA 8010 https://imgur.com/DCFlqQB

This looks absolutely exceptional and I would totally buy it as I'm an Egyptian myself, but as many other people the price is too much for me. Great work!

That makes more sense. I was confused why there was a "base" kit and why it cost so much. It will be interesting to see how many extras vendors order.

Interesting to see the Thok MOQs cut in half after May 6th's graph and their final sales numbers

Woah, those final numbers are something, at least tripling most kits MOQs before extras. No idea what data could have led someone to believe the set would perform so-so. Going to make a killing on those extras though.

I put this on Omni; this is consistent with their kitting preferences and it is a real shame to see.
SA Copper just launched today with more realistic MOQ, better prices, and improved kitting.
Below isn't even an entirely appropriate comparison, as 40s + Ortho are combined in Copper and do not require TKL modifiers or a spacebar kit to be purchased.
A 40s user could outfit a board for $120 with Copper vs $230 for the same 40s coverage with Ramses.
Vendor lack of faith or poor MOQ / kitting decisions made this set entirely unrealistic for many.

Kit                                  Ramses (MOQ)               Copper  (MOQ)               
Alphas$55 (100)$40 (250)
Mods$85 (100)$80 (200)
Numpad$45 (50)$35 (75)
Ortho & 40s$45 + $50 (25 / 50)$80 (50)
Total for above kits$280$235

Goddamm mate, thanks for such comparison, I saw SA Dirt (Copper) going live, but since I did not care for it, never checked its price. Yeah, I said it before and say it again, such a shame that this beautiful set got handicapped by going with Omnitype.
