PLEASE BE ADVISED - Read the following statement from Kickfurther before purchasing packs from this co-op.
This co-op is among the first launched under Kickfurther's newest co-op type, "Inventory Visibility" or "IV". Co-ops of the IV Type are not backed by assigned wholesale purchase orders. Instead Kickfurther forms a relationship with the warehouse provider and tracks inventory levels relying on third party inventory verification.
Read more about the release of Inventory Visibility here.
Payouts made during this co-op will not come in one lump sum to Kickfurther from the brands client directly at the end. Instead Kickfurther will monitor inventory levels and invoice against inventory that is shipped from the fulfillment center on a bi-weekly basis beginning when the Inventory funded is available or the Inventory Available date which ever is sooner. Incremental payouts during the lifetime of the co-op may be withdrawn or used to purchase from other co-ops.
Kickfurther inventory is subject to "First In, First Out" meaning that once the Kickfurther inventory arrives or the Inventory Available date is reached, all sales of the funded item type are invoiced against regardless of whether the specific unit shipped was funded by Kickfurther or the business.
For more information on how invoices are generated see this post.
The Completion date has been updated to include a 10 day hold period after the final payment is due by the brand. See below for the contractual Payout dates.

“This is a fantastic product. I am not the type of person who would look forward to riding an exercise bike or going to a gym. I know that I should, but don't. But, this is really different. This is FUN.” - Amazon Product Review

An owner has personally guaranteed the co-op inventory
This co-op is slightly smaller than our first co-op which was completed responsibly. For this order we will be financing the Virzoom Controller our signature product, described in detail in the product section. The co-op will cover 50 units currently on hand with our 3PL and a portion of our current manufacturing run. This means sales and invoicing will begin immediately following the start of the co-op. The manufacturing run is already in production and will arrive and be available for sale in October. We have projected 3 months sales period to be conservative, but we believe it could be shorter.
Q4 is an exciting time for us and virtual reality is an amazing space to be in. We have provided Kickfurther the necessary access, we have reviewed the process, and we will pay our invoices responsibly.
