There will be a change to the thread or a new thread with an update of everyone's order and their payment cost including shipping. Typically payment is due at the close of the order thread
Yeah basically once the order period is over I'll send everyone a pm with what they owe and once all payments are posted I'll forward the money on to ABC with the artwork to start the production. That's all you should have to do at that point. Once the orders come in I'll sort, package and reship them to everyone who ordered. You should be able to get a general idea of what you will owe by adding up the cost per chip plus $0.03 per chip to cover shipping to me and shipping materials etc for me to package them up and then your reshipping cost based off your total amount ordered which should be listed in the first post I made.

@Jeevansluck @FDLmold you 2 are the last guys who showed interest in the previous threads who haven't placed an order or replied about loss of interest. Just wanted to send a reminder orders belong in this thread.

On a side note we are less than 200 chips away from the 1000 chip price break!
Never received any push notifications for this thread despite being tagged multiple times. I just randomly was reading it...and I see my handle....dafuk????

Dam right I want these...I'll try to help get to 1000...

10 x V1
10 x V2

Just dumb luck I found this....

Well we got our 1000 chip price break. Everything from here is gravy. Still time to get orders in before Friday.

So with the price break achieved you can get an accurate assessment of your cost prior to me sending out invoices. It will be $0.81 per chip ($0.78+$0.03 for shipping) then look up your shipping cost based on the number of chips you want. This way if someone wants to bump up their order to maximize their totals per the shipping methods listed they're more than welcome to. Just let me know.

Less than 8 hours left to get an order in. Once the deadline hits I will gather the info to send off to @ABC Gifts and Awards so they can start production at their earliest convenience. Then I'll send out PM's with what everyone owes.

Appreciate all the help and advice. This is small group buy by most standards but my first to kinda spearhead and its went pretty smooth so far.

Just a heads up @FDLmold you're the only person who expressed a quantity interest in other threads but haven't made an order here yet, if you're still interested there is still time.

Group buy is officially closed. I'll send out PMs with what everyone owes. I'm sending off everything to abc shortly. I will keep everyone updated as things progress.

Anyone who missed out, I will have a few chips that I can sell after everything comes in. If you're interested just shoot me a PM.

First big lesson learned. Sending out individual PM's for a group buy....no bueno. You can't even speed them up by cut an pasting. You have a timer on starting new conversations. So I'm waiting forever between each. I started sending them out at 6 and it took 2 hours lol. I see why people use a spreadsheet and just have people pay them what they owe on the spreadsheet. Would be much faster and just message individuals that are slower to pay or need a reminder.

Thank you for running the group buy. Sounds like it can be painful, but the "buyees" are very happy that you are doing it.

Thanks again. can't wait for the chips.
