One Plus is not just popular among its fan following but it is also popular among the awesome-seeking customers who strive for the best. The smartphone, however, were not easily available to customers and were generally provide to those with a special invite (an e-token). The concept of artificial demand (most likely) is something which drew a lot of attention and the smartphones of the company got viral. The smae kind of model was accepted by Xiaomi while entering into India. The fight over an invite was seen since a few months and some of those who had invites started selling it.
However, company announced that it will discontinue the system of invites and will compliance with the model of that of an open sale.
Here is an official post from One Plus on their Forum:

The company, OnePlus is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer company which was found in the fall of late 2013, 16th December 2013 to be precise. The smartphone manufactured company is headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. (We are not accusing of artificial demand, however, we considered both the points, one-the availability of products in stores soon after popularization via flash sale, second-the shortage of the manufactured products to fulfil demand).
