Most products on massdrop are group buys, which means they collect the money up front before manufacturing. Every product page will have an estimated ship date that is usually more or less accurate. Sometimes manufacturing takes longer than expected and there are delays. You should always look at the ship date before you purchase and decide if you can wait that long for your keyboard. There are some products labeled as "massdrop made" that ship immediately. Waiting for six months or more is not unusual, so you'll need to factor that into your buying decisions. The important thing to remember is that most of the mechanical keyboard products sold here will only be produced once, and you will have a difficult time finding them for sale on the second hand market (and the price will be higher than what you pay here).
