Knops currently entering the second batch of pre-orders

1 Nov '2017 Knops

Wow, Knops has been a ride! As many of you know we went live with Knops this year April. Before this launch, we already worked for two years on our new product. Then our crowdfunding campaigns hit the web…

Second batch of pre-orders

The crowdfunding success of Kickstarter and Indiegogo blew us away. Even though we were very confident that Knops is a great product, we didn’t know what to expect from the rest of the world. But as we know now, a lot of people are excited for Knops. Pre-orders were placed, a lot of them.

Let’s jump back to the present. More, new pre-orders are coming in every day via our own webshop and Indiegogo. This calls for new measures. Together with our production partner we have decided to divide the pre-orders into different batches. The first batch is expected to ship by December. The second batch is expected to ship from the end of January 2018. This means that people that order from now on are part of the second batch.

We just wanted to let you know about this, so people do not get confused about the new shipping estimate on our webshop. We will share a new update about shipping and delivery later this month. As always, we’ll keep you posted. 🙂
