What is an Invite-only system?
An invite-only system is very different from how most brands sell their products. The company limits the number of devices sold and also has control over who has the right to buy the phone. This has a couple of benefits for the brand. One, it is able to create hype around the device due to all the exclusivity it offers. The idea of needing to be lucky to get a device makes it instantly desirable for many.
Second, the brand gets a good idea about the demand for the phone before they start stocking up. This will allow a better flow of the supply and demand value chain. One of the most popular examples of this method of selling a smartphone is the OnePlus One.
