Making it simple for merchants and consumers to access the benefits of Group purchasing

Features and Benefits

GroupforShop is an online retail platform bringing together merchants and buyers. It is a new way of selling and shopping online which treats individual purchases as part of a Group buy and gives access to additional discounts and lower prices.

 

GroupforShop is designed to enable individual buyers to mobilise their social networks to deliver real value. It makes it easy for buyers to promote and increase participation in the Group Offers, increasing sales for merchants and group discounts for buyers.

 

Unlike other online retailers/platforms where each purchase is treated individually, at GroupforShop each purchase is combined with others so buyers benefit from Group(bulk) discounts. 

 

GroupforShop is not a daily discount or voucher provider. GroupforShop is a fully functioning merchant platform with a full catalogue of products all of which are on Group Offer.   

Group Offer

Group Offer” is a new type of consumer offer/ incentive which combines  individual consumer purchases and rewards them by applying bulk/volume discounts based on the total number of purchases made within the "Group Offer Period".  

Group Offer Period

This is  the period of time a  Group Offer will be open. The maximum period an offer can be open is set by GroupforShop Merchant.  If at the end of the Group Offer Period there is unsold inventory the system will automatically create another GroupforShop Offer until all items in the inventory are sold.  Merchants  will have the opportunity  to cancel  or change the terms of these offers before they are activated
