WalleD is modern, lightweight and super-thin wallet with innovative rubber protection mechanism which leaves people speechless.
Funding for this project was suspended by Kickstarter on March 4, 2013.
Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
Hi guys, for all of you who followed this project, I just saw one very interesting! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/443414481/vintage-leather-wallets-by-bens-cottage…
I think they deserved! :)
Hey guys, for those ones who liked and supported these guys from WalleD, please check DeMonaco Wallet! They have an online shop, if anyone would like to have similar WalleD there you go :) https://www.etsy.com/listing/164533681/demonaco-wallet-super-slim-wallet-magic
Thanks for the link! Just when you thought this product couldn't get any sketchier...
Whats going on here? I'm still really interested in this wallet....
Who knows. 2 weeks ago they were supposed to unveil their new kickstarter page. Not sure what's going on. I couldn't wait around to find out.
so is this officially canceled?
I switched to EZ GO. Looks cool...http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2004867815/ezgo-wallet-a-modern-slim-light-easy-to-use-wallet/…
I'm backing the epicstoke wallet too, they look awesome.
I'm currently backing the epicstoke wallet made from recycled billboard vinyl. No "magic" flips but it looks cool and has rfid protection (depending on the model you choose). http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/epicstoke/epicstoke-a-wallet-worth-a-thousand-words. Still 4 days left.
I've bought the Fossil wallet and I did not like it. It is too soft and it does not look good as you put the credit card on it.
I ended up backing The Ridge wallet.
Well it's well past Friday. There's no updates here, or on the facebook page, so this is starting to look dead.
Spotted this as an option for those down under looking for a similar wallet:
Thank you Leah Housley, for the wallet link. I have been looking for something similar to this project.
When I was out shopping today, i found a VERY similar wallet at fossil.
No, they are making a new page,and previous backers will get more $$ off what they backed before
So do they still get the money they raised before it was suspended?
I've moved on to another wallet. I may come back but my window is closing quick to bail out on the current wallet project I'm backing. So unless they post their new page within the next few days i'm out.
This is a great product. Hope everything goes ok. Would really like to get this.
As am I. The complete lack of information is worrying. Even the Facebook links do not have any further details on what is going on.
Still waiting for a longer explanation from both parts.
I hope the relaunch soon. I hope it's explained well and maybe Kickerstarter has a comment about it too. They should not just be so silent on matters such as suspended projects. I don't see why they don't suspend those DeathStar and X-Wing projects if they want to be serious.
As will I.
I have read they are launching a new Kickstarter page very soon and I will personally support these guys, they've put lots of effort and not many kickstarter projects had these stages of development. They started attracting more & more people lately..
So is this project dead in the water or is there a chance it could become active again?
Hey Kickstarter! Donald Trump called, he said "You're fired!"
Hope they get this figured out soon...
I guess the credit card pockets were the issue. I don't know.
The "facebook" post does not compute. Not sure what they mean by "Due to technical reasons (credit card holders changes)" What credit issues did they have? Reading the kickstarter rules also does not help why this was suspended. Need better answer before I will support again. My initial enthusiasm for kickstarter projects is fading as I run into more problems with the projects that I have supported.
Product changes/enhancements are a part of the process of developing a new product, and as kickstarter themselves say, this isn't a shop that we're purchasing pre-made items from so we should expect the product may vary between backing and final delivery, I hope it wasn't cancelled because of this as that seems to counter to the whole idea of Kickstarter imo.
So, what are they going to do? Create a new WalleD page for the OLD or NEW WalleD?
Because the OLD WalleD is very different from this New Walled.
Here is a quoted comment from Sto Yan De Monaco from there facebook page about the email everyone recieved:
" Hello everyone,
Due to technical reasons (credit card holders changes), our first project got suspended and right now we are contacting the staff about this issue. At the same time we are working on opening our new WalleD page, and we would invite all our backers to support our work from the past two months on our new page and help us make our first project successful.
We are sending 615 THANK YOU's and we are hoping that you will help us get out of this unfair situation stronger with even better WalleD.
Sto Yan & WalleD St. Team"
There's a comment on their facebook page with a little update on the issue...
I hope they come out with an update explaining everything.
Very strange. Could be too many design changes?
I have a suspicion it may be due to a copyright infringement as this is not an original idea. That being said, I was still a backer and was looking forward to getting the product.
Just got the email as well. WTH?
Was wondering the same thing, Ryansox.
Awesome! Thank you! Very excited to receive mine.
@Chandler - we planned to ship day or two after manufacturing is done. Statistically 84% of projects on Kickstarter are delayed, and that is the reason why we set June as deadline, but we believe that all our backers will get their WalleD much earlier and send us their feedback! :)
Thank you :) these will be shipping out in June?
WalleD St. Team philosophy differs from other projects' "business" oriented strategy. We want to provide best possible WalleD we could manage to make, without using stretch goals tricks to raise more funds. We have changed our product when nobody asked for changes because we thought that change toward perfection is needed and not to raise more funds. Our goal with this project is definitely not the money since we have changed a lot at no cost to our backers. The final & most awesome present that WalleD St. Team created for our backers you will find in your WalleD package, again at no additional cost to our backers, because we like it that way!
I hope you see our positive attitude and hard work in this project. We can definitely promise you that you will enjoy our WalleD the same as we did in creating it.
Thanks again for your support and your kind comments,
WalleD St. Team
Any more stretch goals? Say one for $20,000? I think if you post additional stretch goals you will attract more new backers who want the wallet & for you to hit that goal. I'll be curious to see what you have in store for us these remaining days.
Can't wait for this wallet. Looks great!
