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:
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.
