As we continue to optimize our Distributor program (including Hackerspaces & Makerspace) which gets all the top-selling and latest Adafruit products to your customers, workshops, and events, there are updates in 2018 which are ahead, and we’re sharing the details here for all.
We’re lowering prices on many of our products! With predictive inventory, quantity purchasing of parts, and efficiencies in our production we can make more high-quality products at even more affordable prices for more people.
What does that mean for Distributors? Discounts on about 1/3rd of our products will go from 40% to 30% in 2018, plenty of time to order now before the holidays.
We will continually highlight our Distributors from posts to videos, to social media coverage on Adafruit online properties. The Adafruit Distributors carry our products and mission the extra mile, whether it be the maker in Alaska or the educator in Lagos. These updates to the Distributor program will put more emphasis on our partnerships, and ensure quality and support for everyone in the Adafruit community, wherever they may purchase our products.
Thank you so much for helping Adafruit get to places and people around the world, Distributors, Hackerspaces & Makerspaces!
