There are times when more really isn’t more – when a few is enough to make a big difference.
But what happens when your need is too small and no one pays attention?
Electronic components are an important aspect of our daily lives and USBid wants to “Chip-In” to help educational and non-profit groups having trouble getting access to small quantities of electronic components.
Too often, the phrase “MOQ” (minimum order quantity) stops a team’s project before it can get off the ground. Whether you need a few samples for a special project or replacement parts to repair a piece of equipment, most electronic component distributors have minimum purchase limits too high for some requirements.
That’s where the USBid Chip-In Program may be able to help.
This is a great service you are providing to the educational community. As you know our budgets and funding are being cut every day and it is becoming more difficult each year to support our facilities properly. Programs such as these greatly enhance our ability to continue to provide the best education possible to our students... Thanks again for your help in this matter.
If you’re looking for a small order and belong to an educational or non-profit organization, mention your group and project name when submitting an RFQ and give us a chance to help – no order is too small and we may even be able to get the parts at no cost to you.
In the first week of this program we’ve already been able to help people from the University of Florida, Arizona State University, and UC–Berkley, to name a few.
It’s our way of putting electronic components in the right hands, where sometimes the need is big even if the order isn't.
Want to get the word out?
The program is new and we want to let everyone who could benefit, know about it. You can help by adding this or something similar to a relevant blog, forum, social media site, etc;
“USBid Inc., (http://www.usbid.com) has a new program called "Chip-in" that provides electronic components to universities and non-profits for small orders. Most distributors have minimum order sizes of between $50 - $150, which are too large for some purchases. USBid will attempt to provide the part - at no cost, depending on your project. If you need a few pieces to repair equipment or samples to build a board, contact them at: http://www.usbid.com/contact.cfm”
