I. HOW OUR PRE-ORDERING WORKS
|STEPS||WHAT TO DO|
|1||You register for the next pre-order event and secure your special discount!|
|2||We hold a few pre-order events per year, only for a limited time.|
|3||Pre-order during the event! Or you’ll have to wait months and months until the next one.|
|4||We make your BeYou to order, so because you’re a bit patient, we can offer you great deals!|
|5||It takes about 3 months to receive your order. We’ll send you regular updates until then.|
II. THE REGULAR WAY VS. THE BEYOU WAY
|THE REGULAR WAY||THE BEYOU WAY|
|Charge customers more to have a bigger profit margin||Hold a few exclusive events per year for the community to pre-order|
|Invest a huge part of the profit into stock||Order materials and components in bulk, negotiate the best prices and pass on any savings to our backers|
|Maintain high prices so you can re-invest again into stock||In exchange for a bit of patience, we can offer our backers bigger discounts because we manufacture to order|
|Unable to offer much product variety, because of stock and cash flow limitations||Co-create along with the community many different designs and colours|
VI. BENEFIT OF OUR PRE-ORDER MODEL
1. CREATING TOGETHER
One of the best things about pre-ordering is the chance to truly involve our community in the design process. Yes, here at BeYou, you have a real say in our next designs.
Occasionally, we’ll ask for your opinion, because we really want to know it. You’ll get to vote for fresh new colours, patterns or shapes. You can expect a variety of different options to choose from!
2. VOTE NEW DESIGNS
If it gets enough votes, your favourite will be available in the next pre-order event, we promise!
This gives us an amazing opportunity to co-create our chairs with your help. It’s a real blessing to nurture this relationship with our incredible community!
Yep, I did tell you this is one of the best things about how we do things here at BeYou, didn’t I?!
3. MINIMAL CARBON FOOTPRINT
We’re an environmentally conscious brand and we do everything we can. Our model also helps us massively reduce the carbon footprint, eliminate waste and really streamline all our processes for efficiency. We manufacture to order, so there are no products left in stock taking up storage in warehouses or getting damaged due to external factors.
We are using international sea shipping for BeYou, which is more environmentally friendly than air shipping. Our packaging is optimised to have the smallest footprint possible, so it’s minimal and lightweight.
For each BeYou chair sold, we plant a tree to offset our fulfilment and distribution carbon footprint. And because it’s the right thing to do for Mother Earth.
