OnePlus has initiated an immediate shipment system for customers in North America and the EU. Starting Jan. 24, the OnePlus 3T Gunmetal 64 GB variant will be delivered to customers as soon as they complete their order.
OnePlus had been facing inventory and supply issues with its smartphones. With the phones frequently out of stock, customers had to wait for a long time to receive their orders. As its New Year’s resolution, the company decided to reduce its delivery time by launching a system that would let it handle the stock and sales of the smartphones in a systematic and timely manner.
In 2014, OnePlus deployed an invitation system for the purchase of the OnePlus One. According to this, one could purchase the smartphone only after receiving an invitation from the company.
The invitation system proved to be a failure as the customers who were willing to buy the phone did not receive any invitation. In certain cases, even though the stocks were available for purchase, customers were kept waiting for weeks to get their hands on the new handset.
The year 2016 proved to be fantastic as the company had launched two smart devices, the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T for its fans. The devices received great response and the demand was on the rise.
Now, to meet the growing demand for the OnePlus 3T, the company has come up with a preorder system to handle the rush.
This move could possibly help OnePlus in stocking up the smartphone before receiving its next set of orders. While facing frequent stock issues from its inception, the company has been working diligently to resolve the issue.
Immediate Shipment System
OnePlus has come up with an immediate dispatch system for customers in the EU and North America, which means that orders, once completed, will be delivered straightaway.
"A New Year means a new start. Our goal for this year is to once again deliver the best technology to our community. It's just as important to do so as fast as possible though, so we'll be looking to reduce our delivery time," notes OnePlus.
OnePlus has revealed that starting Tuesday, Jan. 24, the 64 GB variant of the OnePlus 3T in Gunmetal will be made available in Europe and North America via this new system.
This initiative has been taken by OnePlus to make the entire ordering experience seamless and hassle-free. There is no word on how long the instant shipping strategy will remain available to consumers looking to order the OnePlus 3T. However, OnePlus hints that it is looking to make this system a permanent feature.
The company is looking forward to tackle the issue step by step. It is also trying to avoid any sort of mismanagement.
