Get paid to turn bulk purchase opportunities into successful group buying campaigns

Icon start

Start Your Campaign

Create your GroupGets account, and complete our online campaign form. It takes just a few minutes, and starting a new campaign is free.

  • Adding great photos, videos, and GIFs makes your campaign engaging and gets backers interested.
  • Add helpful accessories to your campaign to make it a one-stop-shop where backers can get everything they need. We’ll help you get the best pricing on accessories.
  • Create a private, invite only campaign if you want to keep your campaign under the radar (amazing for Bitcoin miners and early-stage experimental products).
  • Feel free to use GroupGets as a go-to-market platform for launching your own products.

Campaign Marketing

  • We’ll help you get your campaign in front of potential backers on our social media channels and email list, but you need to use your own channels and network so your group buy gets funded faster.
  • We may create a detailed campaign marketing project to build even more excitement and engagement for your campaign.
  • We may support your campaign with custom software, hardware, or 3D-printed accessories to entice backers with even more value.
  • Although we help set your campaign up for success you will need to market your own campaign
  • Want to bring in some marketing experts? We’ve partnered with Hackster.io to offer their hardware marketing expertise to help you get the best results possible for your campaign.

Finish line

Campaign Closure

Choose how your campaign successfully closes.

  • Campaigns can close when a certain quantity of items has been purchased, after a set amount of time, or both.
  • Backers will always have an additional five days after a campaign closes to ensure that everyone’s payment settles, and the group order is successful.

Icon billing

Billing

Backers are only billed once your campaign ends successfully. No deposits or upfront fees.

  • We pay the manufacturer or service provider as soon as we’ve collected funds from all backers.

Icon fee

Platform Fee

There’s no risk involved with launching a GroupGets campaign because we don’t get paid until you’ve got all the backers you need to complete your order.

  • It we take care of shipping the product, the platform fee is 20% of the total collected funds, minus the shipping fees.
  • If the manufacturer or business ships the product, the platform fee is reduced to 10% of the total collected funds, minus the shipping fees.
  • We may reduce the platform fee for projects we feel have a purpose that deserves an extra financial boost.

Shipping icon how

Shipping

You can choose to have shipping costs combined with the unit price of the product or charged separately. We provide a handy shipping calculator, so you can see how much shipping will cost.

  • Purchases will either be shipped directly to backers from the manufacturer, or the manufacturer will ship to GroupGets. If the manufacturer ships to us, we’ll handle the last stage of distribution.
  • Manufacturers will sometimes cover the shipping fees.
  • Shipping fees do not increase the GroupGets platform fee.

Icon finalization

Finalization

Once all the orders have shipped, campaign initiators are invited to launch a new round.

  • We may stock items that are very successful or hard to get in our store to make future purchases easier and faster.

Icon partner

Partnerships

GroupGets has a large network of distribution partners that can carry and distribute early-stage products created by GroupGets users.

  • Our distribution partners may offer to carry your product if it is successful on GroupGets.

Get Paid for Successful Campaigns


Successful campaign initiators will get paid 3% of the total collected campaign funds, in addition to the satisfaction of getting a great price on a high value item and helping other buyers get the same deal.

Why GroupGet Something?

Icon lower prices

Better Prices

In addition to accessing products that would ordinarily be off-limits because of minimum order quantities, group buying gets you the lowest possible price through bulk discounts.

Icon collaboration

Collaborative Consumption

Even if you can afford to place a bulk order, you may not need the entire lot. GroupGets enables you to find purchasing partners to get bulk pricing, without wasting a single item.

Icon no risk

Risk-Free Group Purchasing

GroupGets is a secure third-party platform that handles the collection of funds, product purchasing, and shipping, if the vendor will not ship to multiple parties.
GroupGets eliminates the risks associated with open-source group buying. It’s impossible for a single person to disappear with the group’s funds or products. We ensure that everyone gets what they paid for.

Icon secure

Secure Platform

Group purchasing through GroupGets is just as secure as making a purchase through a standard online retailer. Your payment and personal information is processed and stored in a completely encrypted system, and your information is never shared with other backers.
