Group Buys / Pre-orders
A group buy is a mass order collated within a limited amount of time. Some group buys have quantity restrictions while others may be unlimited.
Group buys generally mean:
- Manufacturer begins production after all orders have been collected and paid for by the vendor. Buyers will wait for all items to be produced before receiving their orders.
- Group buys are a great way for all participants to spread the cost of manufacturing. This helps us produce boutique designs at a lower quantity compared to industry norms while maintaining a high quality experience for everyone.
Group buy items generally take some time to complete before reaching you. This is our estimated length of time for buys conducted through monokei.
This may differ from other vendors.
1. KeiCaps: 4-6 months
2. GMK: 8-10 months
3. SA (Signature Plastics): 6-8 months
4. JTK: 8-10 months
5. ePBT: 4-6 months
1. monokei keyboards: 6-7 months
2. Collaborations: 6-7 months
3. Proxies: 6-7 months
4. Accessories: 3-4 months
These vary greatly depending on item. A general rule of thumb is to note the delivery period stated on these products when purchasing. You can also access updates through the updates tab on our website or via our newsletter.
These are rough estimates and are subject to changes without prior notification.
Raffles are a RNG draw for a chance to purchase an item. Raffles are generally used when the item is limited in quantity in order to ensure a certain level of fairness for all participants. Draws are done via RNG methods that we do not disclose.
We utilise Koi's Raffle Server for all upcoming raffles we conduct. More information will be added product pages later.

At monokei we strive to create the best experience we can offer, as such we might activate the Human Limit as a clause for rare occasions.
Our goal remains the same - we try our best to provide unlimited buys when possible.
The Human Limit
While we aim to provide as many items we can to as many people possible, we are but frail human beings too.
As such, if a group buy hits an undisclosed threshold in terms of numbers we will consider closing the buy ahead of time. We do this in order to ensure that all buyers get the best possible experience we can provide.
