Many items distributed by werk.technica are funded by so-called Group Buys. Group Buy model is a crowdfunding system established in the custom keyboard scene. These items have not yet been manufactured and are instead crowdfunded so they can be produced. Your "pre-order" is a legally seen as a loan, so we can produce the item for you. Once the prodcution is finished, the products are received by us, quality controlled and finally shipped to you, once we ship your crowdfunding loan turns legally into a purchase and thats when you can receive an invoice.
The dates given include a buffer to account for delays in production so items may ship ahead of time when received early. Unexpected delays can happen, so it may take longer to ship.
The primary reasons for hosting group buys are that these products are very expensive to produce and are made on demand in small quantities.
Group buy items are designed with a specific audience in mind. They are made on demand and in small quantities. Only the group buy model makes it possible for the production run to happen at all.
We design and do quality control, storage and ship your item from Tübingen, Germany.
You can follow our group buys on our discord and in the regular BLOG updates. Current rough production ETA for each major product run is around 8-12 month. During that time you will be able to change your delivery address if needed. After the production is completed, you will be informed so you can modify your initial order adding extra items if needed.
It’s a journey. Thanks for your trust and your support.
