Good news, most of you fine people who pledged via KickStarter have filled in the interest form to tell us you still want one. Which has put the smile back on our faces and made our effort seem worthwhile.
The plan was to eventually setup our own online store and sell direct, we will now do that sooner and start selling to those of you that have registered an interest. We have a Paypal merchant account ready to go and have trialled a few different e-commerce platforms. We have chosen Paypal so that we don’t handle any credit card details, which requires a PCI approved infrastructure, firewalls and lots of expense.
The next step for us is to order a solder paste screen and components to cover the first run through our reflow oven. We have final working PCBs in stock the only issue with them was a last-minute silkscreen change has caused some over lapping of text on our logo, nothing a sticker can’t solve! Besides that they are working fine.
Shipping the first SplashBase’s in January is our goal and it sounds achievable.
