Does the international kit need 100 buyers to unlock or will it go through regardless of the number of buyers?
My guess is, that all sets will go through to production by the looks of it, but I don't have any inside knowledge on it.
Good question. I need the answer to this one aswell before buying. But it would be weird if you could order sets that will not be produced.
Doesnt matter, price is reduced simply by number sold. Manufacturers lower price depending on how much pieces you order. They dont care where its shipped, just pieces made.
Not true. If sets don't hit MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) they won't be produced. Keep in mind that massdrop will always order a couple extra sets for themselves in case of lost shipping or damaged sets/packages, etc so if it gets really close you probably don't have to worry.
If you end up at like 50 sets though then you're probably out of luck. Massdrop isn't buying 50 kits that they can't sell. I believe the plan in the past was to let people who had purchased kits that wouldn't be produced edit their order after the drop ended. Best to contact MD to see how they will be handling it this time around.
Well, thats kinda not case with this set, is it? Way past minimum set.
@YanboWu It would be awesome with some clarification from MD about this minimum order sizes. I would be very sad to see the International kit go becasue it did not reach 100 orders. If kits are less than 100 orders, will they not make it to production?
no it's not way past. several of the kits aren't anywhere near 100 yet. triumph vendor is only at 29, triumph apple at 39 & UK at 35. granted they will probably get to 100 by the end of the drop, but if they don't and don't get above 90, they likely won't be produced. If a kit is only 6 or 7 away it will likely get pushed through by MD as they will buy a few for themselves to fix order problems and will likely just eat the cost of 2 or 3 to make it happen. They won't eat the cost of 10 or 20 kits though.
Yes it does need 100 or close to it.
You should go ahead and order it and whatever else you want. If it doesn't go through MD has in the past said that people will have a day after drop ends to adjust their order accordingly (or cancel it entirely).
If wait to buy it because you're worried about it not being produced then you only increase the chance of it not happening. Everyone who wants it should order it, otherwise it discourages other people from not ordering it as well. If 75 people are waiting to see if it hits 100 then it may not happen even though well over 100 people would buy it.
