Donutís site uses a pre-order system so you donít pay up front. He sends invoices at the end of the GB of it hits moq. Like MD style.

So if you plan to buy, no reason to wait. The faster the numbers climb, the more likely it is for more ppl to join.

Figured it'd be a good time to throw up some numbers since we're at the 1 week point:

Base - 70/250, 28% of the way to MOQ!
Spacebars - 38/100, 38% of the way to MOQ!
40s - 9/150
Ergoplanck - 4/150
Euro - 2/150
Colevrak - 3/150

Doing pretty well so far, looks like we're right on track to hit MOQ for Base and Spacebars, other kits are slowly moving along.

I actually email first to see whether people want to drop or keep their remaining kits when one of their kits doesn't hit MOQ.

Graph of combined kit orders.
Orders last reported on these dates:
   US = 5/10
   CA = ≤ 5/7
   EU = 5/11
   Asia/SEA = 5/7



This is in US dollars.  Graphs in the other currencies are here.

Is 250 the base MOQ for GMK stuff?
And how much is this being advertised on other sites? Want this to go through.

250 is when any color is custom, 150 is when only stock colors are used.

To what number we can say it's safe for the base kit? Would be a shame if this gorgeous set didn't make it.
I think there have been a lot of keyset GBs lately, so that could be one main reason people can't join every kit that they like.

I'm writing this post with a huge sigh.

It's both safe and sad to say that except for the spacebar kit, none of the addon kits would make it to MOQ. I've been relentlessly trying to get to non-MD GB runner that any non-MD GMK addon kit is a direct kill order, because they will never make it to MOQ, and these kits happened anyway.

Wake me up if something miraculous, like zFrontier generously buying out 40s and Ergoplanck kits so they can be made, happens. Otherwise, I'll forget that this has ever existed.

GMK is not that rigid on MOQs and there are 4 proxy involved, so i think this will happen if we reach acceptable numbers, just buy it :(

And the way the GB is set up you don't even get charged until it's over if it goes through anyway.

I think there have been a lot of keyset GBs lately, so that could be one main reason people can't join every kit that they like.

As with all Keyset Groupbuys, generally it is better to commit first when you are on the fence since this will drive the momentum and the numbers up, which translates to numbers moving closer to MOQ and more people willing to join with confidence as well. This, of course, does not take into account financial issues since buying from zFrontier requires upfront payment. If you are from US though, donutcables only require you to pay at the end of GB period when the MOQ is reached (and you can change your mind anytime within GB period with ease).

So if you are on the fence because you (or everyone reading this) are/is uncertain whether it will reach MOQ, hop on in :)

Graph of combined kit orders with DonutCables' 5/13 updated order quantities.  The other three sources' order quantities have not been updated since the previous graph:
   US orders as of 5/13
   CA orders as of ≤ 5/7
   EU orders as of 5/11
   Asia/SEA orders as of 5/7



Graphs in the other three currencies are here.

And I completely agree with cldskt: it is best to commit early to drive the order numbers up to reach MOQ.  If everyone waits until MOQ is met before placing their order, MOQ will never be met.

Donut said it's almost half way there so the data might not have been updated FYI.

250, most likely yes -- it depends if the vendors have the funds to buy out the remaining sets.

You should buy now and get a refund if it fails instead of waiting to see if it'll make MOQ.

Greetings,

I am completely new to the forum, and group buys for key caps (have done them for other products though. I recently purchased an Ergodox and I'm looking for a set of keycaps. I am curious what I would need to order to get full coverage of the ergodox?

I am aware this set wouldn't get here for quite some time if it was successful.
