My advice would be to see if Pimax holds up to their 'In May we’ll ship to the testers" promise. It’s only 6 days anyway. If they again break the promise, then who knows when it will be ready and it might be an idea to sell indeed.
Also would like to hear how others sold their pledge exactly? And what exactly do you sell anyway, can Pimax arrange for this or is this something that backers arrange between them? And in that last case, the original backer would receive the HMD and then send it out after receiving it? Sounds tricky.
Mirq & scy did some transefer i think of money b4 & also did so through pimax in communication if tye transfer. But don’t know exact details. But definitely right to warn caution without a clear plan.
I just know they did i think transfer of the kickstarter account in the mix.
Yes, we did use paypal. Basically this was his only KS on his account so I requested to give him half of the pledge after the KS went into my name and email. Then the other half after Pimax told me they would send it to me and I would be the contact on the pledge now. They confirmed this to both of us and I paid the remaining balance. There is a bit of trust there as you would have to guarantee the buyer will give you the remaining half, but I assume if they don’t then you should be able to contact Pimax and say the terms were broken and to change the account back or file a paypal complaint. We actually used friends and family to avoid fees, however so you are aware, only use that if you trust each other. Friends and Family cannot have a paypal claim against it, so if you get screwed by one party they can’t take it back, however it is free. Just be careful.
Im from Germany and i nearly sold my pledge for 1499€…that nearly doubled from what i paid till now as early bird complete package plus some extras.
But before I said yes there came the update about the controller…and I really love them so I decided to keep my pledge. Also the HTC pro is the same price so that would not be a alternative^^
