Without knowing any Korean whatsoever, I'm guessing it's an invoice from a factory for 100 boards that was placed on July 2nd for ₩10,700,000.

Product shipment has been started. In this process, we decided to change some of the delivery methods.

Last time we sent the spring, we sent it all using EMS. (exception 1 case).
EMS is the highest-priced delivery method that can be selected from the Korean post office.

We have shipped nearly 20 items in total through EMS, and in the process we found that EMS is not suitable for delivery.
EMS is irresponsible for tracking delivery, and its response to problems is too insufficient.
Also, there is a high risk of loss when shipping the keyboard, and compensation requires a very complicated process.

In fact, about 6 of the items we sent via EMS were lost or returned without arriving in the middle.
We have decided to change the delivery method due to the complicated and slow process and the long delivery time required.

Here's an example of what actually happened.





We sent the package with the zip code of 80238, something went wrong in the middle, and it became 80239, and was eventually returned.
We contacted the Korean Post Office and USPS, but we could not get compensation for this, and there was a considerable cost and time loss. (We also paid the return fee.)

We judged that EMS was not suitable after several such accidents, so we decided to entrust overseas shipping companies regarding shipping.

When we send the package to this company, the shipping company will link it with FedEx, DHL, etc. and send it to the most appropriate company.
This makes it easy to get compensation for a delay or error, such as a return, loss, etc.
And maybe using FedEx or DHL will reduce the delivery time a lot.

Domestic shipping and reception fees will be incurred in this process, but we will pay the full cost, so you don't have to worry.

Another update. For general shipping keyboards other than 20 units shipped first, the progress so far is as below.

Bottom Case : 20% progress.

Top Case : 80% progress.

Plate : 90% progress.

PCB : 90% progress.


5 out of 20 units for the first shipment will be shipped tomorrow morning. The rest will be sent out in a few days. (for prevent problems when shipping.)

It is finally the first shipment!

The products are sent to the company in charge for overseas shipping. It will probably be received within 2 days and boarding on the flight.

Nothing on my end but I was middle of the pack of first 20.

Also a bit unclear on the shipping process through this separate organization but at the very least I understand (edit: from lack of indication) chanmin did not personally email the "5" recipients.

Hello, we are informing about the delivery.

We started the shipping process for colors that are pre-made and can be sent immediately.

The new anodized color will be shipped soon (early August).

Some time delays may occur in the process of using a shipping specialist, but we will update it as often as possible.

It is finally the first shipment!

The products are sent to the company in charge for overseas shipping. It will probably be received within 2 days and boarding on the flight.

Considering that the cost of shipping is so low on this receipt and that he shipped via GS25, I'm guessing the first shipment only included local orders.

I think he would have posted the receipt for international orders if he had already sent them, but I could be wrong.

Chanmin, we appreciate your hard work and updates, but we'd also appreciate it if you sent us more information about which orders have been fulfilled. I'm sure some sort of tracking sheet for the orders would give some peace of mind for a lot of us.

RIP, my order - I chose to get champagne gold, one of the new ano colours. Based on the timeline so far, I'm going to assume that early August = late August. Maybe even September??

Thanks for the updates, and good luck with the shipping process! However, I wish the time estimates were a little more conservative from the very beginning to minimize disappointment if things didn't go as planned.

I decided to give this group buy the benefit of the doubt, despite there being a few yellow flags, so I guess this is simply the outcome of my choices, ha. Lesson learned.

I donít think thatís his fault, also the shipping was said to be in September unless you were one of the lucky ones to get the board earlier. Heís fine on his timeline but we just need more clarity about local and international orders thats all.

My order was one of the first 20, that was meant to ship in July. :)

I also want to clarify that there is no blame here, per se - but the reality is that as a groupbuy runner, there is a responsibility to manage buyers' expectations.

just want to make sure, for the new shipping specialist shipment, can it be tracked? if can, where can we track it?

We have completed the shipment to the carrier and paid for it.
However, it is still waiting to be shipped. I'll ask about this. We will update the tracking number as soon as it appears.





We visited the factory today and tried to do an intermediate check.

But the heavy rain caused some of the buildings at the previous station where we were located to collapse and hit the railways, causing the train to stop.

Restoration is in progress, but I don't know when it will end.

Since we have another schedule, we contacted the factory and rescheduled the visit.

The first 20 orders are in the shipping process.

The process may take some time because it will be delivered via an outside company. But I will update you as soon as the shipping information is updated.

Another package has been returned. The problem is that there is a problem after reaching the destination country.

If it was not delivered because there was no one in the address, it will be returned in a few days. Additional charges will be charged for such accidents, including return charges.

I think it would be beneficial if tracking number for shipped orders was provided so people can track their delivery and setup alternate delivery/pickup options in case they are not home at the time of delivery. Without a tracking number it is going to be hard to know when the package will show up or be home all the time. Not sure if the packages are signature restricted which adds more complexity on the receiver's end.

TL:DR - Add tracking number if not already doing so for shipped orders.

When you say the first 20 orders are in the shipping process, does this include the ones with new anodization colours?
