Risks and challenges
Once we hit our goal you are guaranteed your reward. No question. We know where each of the many components of the SaverStrap is coming from. We have the manufacturer (4orte Bag Company) in place.
We are shipping out of the USA. We think within 8 weeks from the moment the campaign ends. But we've said September to be extremely safe.
WE WON'T HAVE ANY OF THESE PROBLEMS:
CUSTOMS DELAYS: 4orte has been dealing with Chinese, Canadian and US customs for years. In short we know the ins and outs.
MATERIAL SHORTAGES: Everything we use in the SaverStrap is available in proper quantities.
LABOR SHORTAGES: 4orte has not only their manufacturing ability but a back-up manufacturer should labor shortages or strikes occur.
QUALITY CONTROL ISSUES: With 4orte in charge we have world class manufacturing experience specific to our type of product. We have this covered.
MATERIAL PRICE FLUCTUATIONS: There's no gold in our SaverStrap. Just fundamentally sound materials whose price cannot be significantly affected by the fickleness of the market. NOTE: as of April 18th we have a firm to-the-penny Cost of Manufacture quoted and set in stone. So there is absolutely no way we stall because of sudden price rises.
SHIPPING DELAYS: We are using a combination of widely available ocean freight and then USPS to deliver to you. We have a wealth of freight forwarding and shipping experience to boot.
POST KICKSTARTER DELAYS TO MARKET: We are delighted to be partnered with Digital River, USA ( www.digitalriver.com ). Via them we will be available online to the world with safe and professional online transactional processing, superb customer service and premium fulfillment (order completion/shipping) services. Your support here today means tomorrow the world will have access to pain-free bag carrying.
