With Crowd Supply’s help, I took a closer look at the minimum order quantities for my manufacturer. I found out I could reduce the minimum order quantity a lot. That makes it a lot easier to reach the campaign goal and get you your equipment. So here’s what’s happening:
All existing orders will be updated to reflect the new pricing.
No credit cards will be charged until the campaign reaches its (new) funding goal.
The reduction of prices and funding goal is possible due to planning for a small minimum order quantity (MOQ) that gets us to break even, rather than starting MOQs that have margin built in to them. Of course, there is still some (~10%) cushion in case something goes wrong.
These changes were made in consultation with Crowd Supply.
