Our mistake...
I completely forgot that our display boards are not ready yet.
We discovered that our first shipment only contained the bottom slab of the display box.
We are still waiting for the top slab shipments to come.

It should be no longer than another 2 weeks. Sorry about that!

$9.99
We've honestly given it a lot of thought. EVA Foam is not cheap and the boxes are incredibly of high quality(especially when it comes to robustness and thickness) compared to other keyboard boxes I've compared to.
We aren't receiving much profit from each box so please be understanding. You are paying for true quality. 
We may have to increase the price later on in the future but we promise the price will be $9.99 as an introductory promotional(possibly permanent) price.

I'm sorry for the mistake earlier. It's been an incredibly crazy week for us. We had to sort over 30,000 keycaps and ship out all the pre-orders.

Completely silly shipping prices to Australia, as usual :(

Not KeyPop's fault, just one of those things.

Looking awesome keypop!!! But I think you guys could of keep prices even more competitive if lets say in a box you can store 6 or even 10 pieces. Not that this is bad, but 1 box for 4-5 different keycap sets would of make more sense and prices could of been adjusted a bit. Not saying that price is bad as of now.... but this way we have a box and 2 pieces of foam for 1 keycap set.... instead lets say 1 box 10 foam pieces for 5 keycap sets.

So long as shipping (to Canada) isn't too bad, I'll probably pick up a couple.

I'm not surprised that these are flying off the shelves. I know I've been waiting for something like this for a while and I'm sure lots of others have too.  :thumb:

Yeah... I ordered 6... I figured that was the sweet spot w.r.t. shipping to Canada. 

When I started my order the stock meter was full.  When I finished, it was down to about 2/3.  I figured they were either flying off the shelves, or they only had 18 of them.  :p

Since I can't put the item in the shopping cart right now to check:

How much is international shipping for these boards? How many boards can be shipped for the lowest price?

How much is international shipping for these boards? How many boards can be shipped for the lowest price?

We can ship up to 4 boards for the lowest price. Anything higher and we'll have to utilize custom rates as those require larger shipping boxes than the ones we normally carry.

The trial sale of 50 units was to check and see if the shipping costs were calculated fairly. For some customers they were perfect while others were a bit unfair(we have already refunded those buyers the rightful amount). If you did not receive a refund it is because you were charged the appropriate amount). After this initial sale we have adjusted the shipping costs to more fair rates.

We're aware that our shipping costs are upsetting some users but please understand that these boxes are quite heavy(mainly due to the high quality cardboard box shell and dense EVA Foam) compared to most display case boxes. Each box weighs roughly 7~7.5 ounces and the actual shipping box (14x8x4 inches) weighs roughly 8 ounces so the shipping costs are definitely not cheap(blame the United States Post Office, not us).The shipping costs we're currently charging are pretty much close if not exactly the amount we need to ship them out to customers.

Shipping for US starts at $6.99 (We are strictly shipping these via Priority Mail because First Class Mail is not allowed for packages exceeding 13 ounces) and $1.99 for each additional box.
Shipping for Canada starts at $12.99 and $2.99 for each additional box
Shipping for all other International Orders starts at $14.99 and $2.99 for each additional box

I am personally making sure that if a customer overpays in shipping costs, we immediately refund them the appropriate amount. For those who ordered more than 4 keycap display cases please be patient as we are acquiring the adequate shipping materials for your orders. We will then refund your shipping costs if it turns out to be cheaper.

Hope this helps everyone!

My two boxes arrived earlier this morning. I was assuming that the EVA foam had the cut outs already removed, but to my joy they are simply pre-cut and you can remove sections that you want. I also enjoy the adhesive behind primary layers for the backings. What took me a bit to figure out was how would you remove each layer if you could barely insert a finger to access the layers and not rustle up the keycaps. I naturally began to think sherryton/hazel's storage box idea of having a little tab so you can pull up each layer easily from top view is more ideal. But then I looked at the tab/slit area where you lock down the top of the case. The hole is large enough so you can see the bottom layer so you can easily push the bottom layer up and grab the top portion/layer that holds the alphas and modifiers. It makes sense and is more (I'm just assuming here) cost efficient rather than including a pull tab attached to each layer.

I didn't want to order more than 2 boxes since you guys are doing a demo run and wanted to give others a chance to grab some. If it's worth anything, I believe these boxes are excellent for the price. Looking forward to when you guys release the colored versions / larger quantity release. I'll be grabbing several more then. Great job guys!

Is there a reason you increased the price for these cases?

I know it's high quality and everything, but now I feel kinda "cheated" for not getting into the first batch for no particular reason other than being asleep while it was offered.

At these prices plus shipping it's really hard to justify a purchase for international buyers :(

Maybe I wait for the colored ones hoping they will be offered for 10$ again ;)

ya, when he posted that, I thought it got bumped up by 200% or something.


I'm going to take the time to be an ******* and state that $2 isn't even a single novelty cap.  you would need to buy TEN boxes to lose $20.

$2 is not going to make or break a purchase. especially, when shipping to canada is more than the cost of the box.

how about when you compare it to competitors? (what competitors?)

Sorry, I didn't want to come off rude or something in any way.

It's just one box is now 27$ incl. shipping for me which is just too much. Sure, 2$ plus (=20% increase) is not the world, but it was expensive for me before and I just want to know why the price was increased. They could have offered it for 12$ initially but they didn't, so I am curious.

I spend too much on keyboard stuff anyway and I simply don't want to "waste" my keyboard budget for something I don't really need.

So is it $2 more because you were losing money? Or did you add $2 because they sold so fast it makes sense to charge more?

From what I can see, it was simply a promotional price for the first batch. Think of it as the early bird special if you will. Those who are subscribed to the newsletter got first pick at the boxes at a lower price for the first round of production. In the original newsletter, it was even stated that the $10 was just a promotional price.

Is there a reason you increased the price for these cases?

I know it's high quality and everything, but now I feel kinda "cheated" for not getting into the first batch for no particular reason other than being asleep while it was offered.

At these prices plus shipping it's really hard to justify a purchase for international buyers :(

Maybe I wait for the colored ones hoping they will be offered for 10$ again ;)

We only had 200 boxes total and the promotional price was barely getting us much profit after paypal fees/shipping costs. I'm sorry you feel cheated. We just couldn't afford to continue selling the boxes at that price. We figured the first 50 would be plenty for anyone whether international or domestic  and we didn't expect them to sell out so quickly.

Fair enough :)

I'll definitely will wait for the colored cases and make my final decision then.

Maybe you can offer some kind of bundles like "buy 2 cases get a novelty key of choice for free" or something like that ;)

Does anybody want to see some pictures?

You need to ask that around here? ;)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thats incorrect. Its in HHKBs slogan, but when Americas cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Mine arrived at my doorsteps today! Thanks Keypop for the freebie Chickobo keycap  ;D :thumb: I was surprised the "FRAGILE" sticker was actually taken seriously. Usually boxes end up getting bumped and scratched.

BTW, sorry for noob question, but what profile are these? I'm guessing DCS?
Sorry, phone pic for now.
