Oh no! What can I do if I'm in the US? My invoice also says that the summer sellout discount is until today. Can my discount still apply if I'm trying to figure out the payment process?

Get a SEPA invoice and we can figure this out ;)

PM'd on Slack. I don't know how to get a SEPA invoice.

Hi everyone.

I am in the same situation as LightningXI, I placed a Round 7 order and received a GW invoice but there is no GW proxy right now.

I requested a SEPA invoice and am waiting to receive it. I am in the US and so can not pay this directly. Can someone help me find a payment proxy? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

EDIT: I now have a name / IBAN / BIC / Bank name to pay. Can I just do an international wire transfer to this destination or is a payment through SWIFT/SEPA somehow different? Apologies for being so ignorant on the topic.

Aw fuck I just saw this and I missed the rebate. Can I still get in on this at all?

I'm considering the TKL set, but I'd need a spacebar, 1x1.75u shift, and 2x1.5u modifiers. Is that possible to do?

I'm a noob. I hope I did right, but I just placed an order for leftovers from previous rounds. Not sure when to expect them, but very excited either way. 7bits keys are gorgeous.

Sorry for the newbie question. In my paypal payment I messed up the comment I sent and put the whole description in the note
"Round 5/6/7: Invoice #1125: HONEYG/MOD125A/GE; HONEYG/MODSYM100B/CADET; HONEYG/MOD125B/BLUE ; HONEYG/CURSOREXTRA/F/BLUE; HONEYG/RUBOUT175/BLUE |RUB OUT (1. 75u); HONEYG/TRIANGLE175/BLUE ; HONEYB/MODSYM100/BLUE; HONEYB/MODSYM150/R3/BLUE; HONEYB/CURSOREXTRA/RED; HONEYB/ESCAPE/RED ; HONEYB/SPACE700/BLACK"


instead of
"R5 1125 ihalatch".

Is this a problem and if it is, how to fix it? I'm very worried.

Such a shame you can't make it to the Mechanicon this year!

Looking forward to this, the 7bit GB train keeps on rolling like a good old steam engine! Choo choo

You should receive a new E-Mail once Payment has been received and confirmed, the new E-Mail looks similar to your current invoice, but it will include a statement of when and how much money was received, and how much remains to be paid/you have credit.

I haven't received any email with conformation. Who should I ask?

It should be, yes. As far as I know, it's been available (to order) for three years now, and available for shipment since the beginning of the year.

Did you pinch the HYPER7 kit. I was trying to restrain myself for another 2 weeks before I was going to pull the trigger. No more I guess we are not going to see it again?

What exactly means 'start' for this GB? Order being placed with SP, paid and then scheduled into the queue for production?

How about leftovers? Just curious -- I just paid for a few older extras (R5, R6) under Invoice 1152. Would you mind looking into the extras that I ordered?

I've just made my second payment for Round 7 + Round 6 leftovers. 7bit can you please confirm it? Are the leftovers ready to be send, are they in stock?

I've sent three messages to 7bot in the last six days. All are sitting in my outbox.

Anyone else having this issue, or am I missing something?

Lovin' these keycaps.

PMs always sit in your outbox, even after they are delivered.

You won't get a response until 7bit turns the crank on his bot though. It may be called a "bot" but it isn't nearly as automated as you might think.

Part of my first month of salary will be reserved for 7bit's Round 7.
(But I am still applying for jobs right now... :oops:)

By the way, I believe MaxKey has already cut into Signature Plastic's market share, at least a little. Good for us.

Well, it was market share SP couldn't take for themselves anyway, so it doesn't really affect their bottom line. SP won't feel the impact of competition until their machines sit idle while MaxKey's run full tilt. We may never see that day.

In my view, the only thing MaxKeys brings to the table right now is a source of mediocre SA keycap sets. I guess that's good for us, but it feels like a consolation prize rather than the real prize, so to speak.

Have you tried any MaxKey set up till now?
I haven't yet (I actually forgot if I there was any in Mechanicon 2017) and am very curious if MaxKey really different much worse typing feel. To my naked eyes, at least their products so far have been improving, such as eliminating the "SHIF T" problem. I still don't like that they are not as sculpted compared to Signature Plastic's SA.

Anyways, those truly super high quality sculpted key caps such as those on Micro Switch USA keyboards are now history and no longer possible.

In terms of quality, they were really yet at another quantum level higher than the work of Signature Plastic.

Ironically enough, the honeywell terminal in your first pic isn't even sculpted :P And yes, these keycaps are ace!!!
