[GB] GMK Classic Beige
« on: Tue, 04 August 2015, 16:29:00 »
GB CANCELLED DUE TO NOT ENOUGH ORDERS

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE OP & FAQ BEFORE ORDERING OR POSTING QUESTIONS!

If anyone has ANY issues or niggles with the website let me know straight away! I will do my best to sort them out. This is the first time Ive used this website for a large GB so there may be some small kinks that need to be worked out!

Please give a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE thank you to HoffmanMyster. He is receiving and shipping all NON-EU orders so that you guys avoid 19% VAT. He is making this a lot cheaper for all of you!






After many, many months of waiting its finally here - the GMK Classic Beige group buy.

All keys are doubleshot ABS, with the exception of blank keys and a certain few other keys (listed on the website descriptions of the individual sets).

When designing this set I aimed to make it a faithful reproduction of the original Cherry sets, but with added functionality and some previously unseen popular keys. The legends are identical to the original ANSI sets and full A and B profile bottom rows are provided for winkeyless and winkey layouts respectively. No mismatched profiles!
^-^




The sets (see the website for list of keys included)

1. Main set [123pcs]



2. Extra set [20pcs]



3. L9 Spacebars



The prices are as follows :

EU/UK ORDERS

Main set - 82.50 - About 117.50
Extra set - 27.50 - About 39.00
Spacebars - 2 each - About 2.85

NON-EU ORDERS

Main set - 72.50 - About $113.00
Extra set - 22.50 - About $35.00
Spacebars - 2 each - About $3.10

Please see FAQ for explanation of price difference between EU/NON-EU orders!




FAQ

  • Q : What is Stripe? Do I need an account to use it? Which countries can I use it from?
    A: Stripe is a payment handling service for credit & debit cards similar to Paypal. It means that no card information is stored on my site, and allows everyone to buy with confidence. You don't need an account (just a precision-buys.com account) and you can use it from ANY country so long as you have a supported card!
  • Q : Can I pay through Paypal?
    A : Not currently. There may be a chance for people to pay via Paypal at a later date if there are many people who cannot pay through Stripe. I encourage everyone to pay through Stripe unless they are quite literally unable to as I believe it to be a much better payment method, especially for group buys. If you absolutely cannot use Stripe (to clarify : "cannot", not "would prefer not to") please send me a PM here or an email through the site with the title "Cannot use Stripe" with no text body. This will help me gauge the number of people who cannot use Stripe.
  • Q : Is your website secure?
    A: Our site is perfectly secure. Checkout is done via SSL and we are PCI compliant, however none of your payment information is stored on our server. All payments go through Stripe, which is absolutely secure. Just as secure as Paypal or any other popular payment method.
  • Q : Why are the sets for EU orders more expensive?
    A : The NON-EU orders will be shipped by HoffmanMyster in the USA. Those sets will be shipped directly to him from GMK, and he will pay little to no import duties on them. The EU orders will be shipped by me in the UK. I will have to pay 19% VAT on these sets, hence the higher price for EU orders. However, since EU orders will be shipped from the UK no import VAT/duties will be paid on them. In the end it works out best for everyone, regardless of location. EU and NON-EU orders all end up cheapest this way.
  • Q : If I pay right away what happens if we don't reach MOQ?
    A: You will be refunded completely. Neither party loses a cent with Stripe refunds.

More will be added as questions are asked :)




Disclaimer

Please note that this is a group buy. The items will not be shipped straight away, as they arent produced yet. Once the order deadline is reached the sets will be produced and then shipped to us. We will then sort & ship them out as soon as possible! The MOQ is 250 sets. If this is not reached you will be refunded in full.

If the items are lost/damaged in transit we cant guarantee a replacement. There will be some spare sets, so we will try to replace severely damaged sets, but if the spare sets are depleted Im afraid not much can be done. We cannot guarantee refunds for lost/damaged sets, since this is a non-profit group buy.




Note for large orders

The shipping is only set for up to a certain number of sets on the website. If you're ordering a large number of sets and the site will not give you a shipping quote please just PM me here or email me through the website. Also, if you are making a fairly large order and have special requests such as tracking & insurance you can contact me too.




Lastly, thank you everyone for your extreme patience. I wanted to make this as perfect as I possibly could, and that required time. Hopefully everything will go smoothly and well hit MOQ in no time.

Gmk is not good for the wallet. Temptation.

Everytime I say "I'll put away some money for a new pc, since my current one can't run anything!" then I see a GMK group buy or the hubble mira...

DD-MM-YY makes more sense anyways.. I don't understand why we must use Month,Day,Year. It makes no sense to me, I for one, favour DD/MM/YY

Or YY/MM/DD if you're feeling adventurous.  ;)

It's not my fault, I remember spelling it that way since I could first read and write.

At work we file our docs as YYYY-MM-DD, which makes things SO much easier. I prefer that as the standard.
Coming from America, I can see how DD-MM-YYYY makes more sense, yet it still confuses me.

Because the person organizing the group buy is located in the UK...

You really don't even need to deal with GBP anyway.  He converted it to USD for you.

Any ISO users wanna go halves in the Extra pack? All I want out of it are the windowless R3 control keys, 1.75x shift and bottom row caps lock.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.
