Pre-Order FAQs

Crowdfunding is defined as the collecting of resources (funds, money, tangible goods, time) from the population at large through an internet platform.

In return for their contributions, the crowd can receive a number of tangibles or intangibles, which depend on the type of crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding involves three participants:

- the crowd (contributors / pre-order customers);

- a hosting platform (our website); and

- the crowdfunding campaign creator (BeYouChair) operates predominantly as a crowdfunding / pre-order website.

When getting any BeYou items as part of our crowdfunding / pre-order campaigns, you are supporting an entrepreneurial endeavour and getting a reward, you are not buying a product in a regular online store.

When you support our pre-order campaigns, you are helping to create something new, not purchasing something that already exists.

The products are given to you as a token of our appreciation for you and the support you have given us. At times, the product you are pre-ordering could go through an iterative process, resulting in changes to its design and/or functionality. This is only done with your best interest in mind as we always try to provide you with a reward you will enjoy for many years to come.

Your card will be charged at the time you place your pre-order. The pre-order charge may or may not include the shipping charge for your product - this information will be clearly provided on the campaign page itself. If shipping is charged later than the pre-order charge, you will receive an email notification when it’s time to return to our store to settle the shipping charge for your pre-order.

This business model has allowed our company to exist and we could not be more grateful to the entire pre-order community. We appreciate your understanding of our policy and your continued support.

Pre-order items do not include a warranty, unless explicitly specified in the campaign.

The benefits of supporting a pre-order campaign include but are not limited to:
- exclusive perks and discounts of up to 50% from retail price

- active involvement in the development process - which means you often get a say in what the product will look like

- priority delivery - you are among the first people in the world to receive the items before we make it available to the greater public

- helping to protect the planet - we optimise stock management, reducing overstock and our carbon footprint

Your support of a pre-order campaign does not always guarantee that you will receive a product.

We owe our crowdfunding / pre-order customers a high standard of effort, honest communication, and a dedication to bringing the campaign to life.

At the same time, the crowdfunding / pre-order customers understand that when working to deliver a crowdfunding / pre-order campaign, the campaign creator ( may run into repeated challenges or delays, and there’s a chance something could happen that prevents from being able to complete the campaign as promised.

In the unlikely situations where extreme challenges come up and we are unable to deliver on a crowdfunding / pre-order campaign, we will openly communicate with all the campaign's crowdfunding / pre-order customers extensive details about the challenges we've encountered, how these challenges have affected our funds and our ability to deliver on our campaign and how we plan to move forward with that campaign.

For some or all crowdfunding / pre-order campaigns, we may decide to charge the shipping fees for each pre-order separate from the value of the order itself. This is done with fairness and our crowdfunding / pre-order customers' best interest in mind - shipping charges may fluctuate from one month to another and our aim is to charge realistic, up to date shipping fees.

Our commitment to all crowdfunding / pre-order customers is to:

- extend every effort to complete and deliver the campaign according to the estimated timeline shared with all crowdfunding / pre-order customers

- maintain open, transparent communication with regards to the progress we are making once the production has started for the crowdfunding / pre-order customers

- share regular updates in which we detail the steps we take, how we use the funds received from all pre-orders and what challenges we encounter along the way
