Funds have landed! Surveys are on the way! Backerkit now requires a "smoke test" if you have over 500 backers so 5% of you will get it this morning and, I believe, I should be able to send the rest later today. Not sure as this feature is new. It's to make sure that there are no mistakes in the process.
For those of you that have used Backerkit before, this will be a breeze. For the rest of you, will also be a breeze. It's pretty self explanatory and works like any ecommerce store but you will have "credit" in the amount that you pledged. If you added funds to your pledge for extra spinners, you just select them as "add ons" and it will come out of your credits.
Ex: You are a domestic backer and pledged Stainless Steel but also added funds for an additional Copper spinner.
Your total would have been $178
Your survey will show that you have Stainless coming to you with an $85 credit. You then select Copper as the add on and your balance will be zero.
If you then decide that you would like to add more products, there will be a balance and will have to add your credit card info.
That sounds more complicated then it is.
More add ons...
You will also see a variety of best selling products available in the add ons section. This is mostly for those of you that are new to J. L. Lawson goods and would like to add on some items and save shipping. That said, there are a couple of new pieces that will be available here before adding to the website...
The first is a new spinning top design that I'm in love with. It's 7/8" diameter and will be a new Standard on the site once I'm finished with survey orders. I'm limiting this to 100 pieces for backers because it's all I can machine in the next month or so. This top will retail for $68 but available to you guys for $48.
The second is the Tempus Coin now available in solid Brass! These will also be added to the site later in the year but likely will be closer to holiday. All of the items are marked down around 20% off my standard retail cost just to entice you a little more.
I won't try and pretend that I'm offering these extra add ons only as a bonus to you guys, it's also an effort to sell more products but I do lose an extra 5% to Backerkit and am offering a higher discount then I generally do on the site.
Please don't inquire about adding other products from the site as an add on. If there is something on the site you'd like to purchase, you can contact me and I'll extend a discount but won't be able to send in the same shipment.
A few of you wrote that had pledged a dollar in order to stay in touch about pre-orders. I now have a pre-order link set up and those will ship in October after the KS pledges have been fulfilled.
If you have ANY issue with the survey, please feel free to write me a direct message with your name and email and I'll help you through the process.
