I'm thinking of creating a group buy thread now, offering 4 colours and dropping black.  It's been only a day and we've already received 47 orders with around 100 each.

Most orders, people have at least one set of each colour, so I'll be setting an order of at least 1 set per colour rather than 2 min..

I'll have the group buy run for a month and see how it goes.  This way people have more choices and incentive to order instead of limiting one choice and limit the audience.

What do you guys think?

Yeah, that is probably the best choice. Drop black because it is very common and have a minimum order of 1 each. At these prices this is fair I think.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís 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

The quotes for alps and gamer set. Very high MOQ. I think she misunderstood me when I asked for Alps key set. This Alps set is a gamer set I believe.

Octopus --8 Double Shot rubber keys + 1 key puller Ė WASD & Arrow keys Ė Cherry or ALPS
*USD2.00 / ex factory / with blister package
*USD1.00 / ex factory / with plastic bag package
**MOQ for Cherry keys: 500sets (Color options: Red)
** MOQ for Cherry keys: 1000sets (Color options: Orange / Red / Green)
**MOQ for ALPS keys: 1000sets (Color options: Orange / Red / Green)
Thanks alot elton. MOQ is too high. I'll buy it somewhere else. This GB is gonna be complicated. I don't want to waste too much of your time.  ;)

Elton since you are letting the GB run for 1 month don't drop the black, it might just make the MOQ you never know. I haven't seen any google sheet maeby ive missed it...

Just did the sheet, 1 of each set, would be shame to drop black... not at this price. That's $40 for 5 sets DS keycaps and they are quite thick!!!!

So do you guys want blank windows keys and menu keys or pad printed for an extra .20 each key?

They are competent in English enough, so thanks anyways.

Pad printed sounds fine--those keys won't get too much use, relatively-speaking.

Blank or pad - I use a Mac mostly, so printing Windows keys is kinda meh.

No pad printed please, if its done wrong it'll rub off in a day even if theres not much use. And as the keyboard gods ascended from the heavens they said "LET THEM BE BLANKS!  LISTEN TO RULE FOR HE SPEAKS TRUTH, YAY." [Hopefully that was enough to get your  attention :) ]

Some news for you guys

Since one mold is including many keys (1x1, 1x1.25, 1x1.5Ö), it will waste other keys if you only need a 1x1.5 key..
    The MOQ is at least 500pcs Ė Color has to be the same as your other 500sets 104keys order.
    Price for each 1x1.5 key is USD0.30 (I am sorry itís very expensive because it waste a let of other keys)
 
The MOQ for ALPS key (104keys) is 500 sets. Price & Color options is the same as Cherry type.
 
For the Octopus 8 rubber key, you may visit the following web site to buy it if can not meet our MOQ.. Thanks..

A typical keyboard such as Coolermaster's Quick Fire Rapid, Filco Majestouch, etc uses a 6.25x size space bar. This set doesn't include that. It includes a size 7x space bar that doesn't fit a typical keyboard. The reason being is the supplier, Tai Hao doesn't have the mold to make it.

You have to pay by PayPal because I need the funds from everyone before I place the order to the supplier. Do you not have Paypal?
