How to Use GroupGets

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

Howitworks   start your campaign

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.

Howitworks   campaign marketing

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 as well.
  • Want to bring in some marketing experts? We’ve partnered with to offer their hardware marketing expertise to help you get the best results possible for your campaign.

Howitworks   campaign closure

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.

Howitworks   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.

Howitworks   platform fee

Platform Fee

There’s no risk involved with launching a GroupGets campaign because nobody is charged anything until you’ve got all the backers you need to complete your order. If your campaign does fund:

  • We charge a small portion of the total collected funds minus the shipping fees and handle fulfillment to over 60 countries.
  • If you are a reputable company with a demonstrated ability to self-fulfill, you can ship yourself and pay less of a platform fee but you'll have to use a flat rate.
  • If you'd like us to manage your electronics production, we can handle it for an additional fee.

Howitworks   shipping


We provide a shipping calculator for backers at checkout to choose their desired provider and class level from a wide variety of options.

  • Purchases will be shipped directly to backers from GroupGets.
  • Tracking numbers are sent to each backer just before we ship.
  • We do not cover VAT or import duties for any shipment.

Howitworks   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.

Howitworks   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 2% 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?

Howitworks   better 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.

Howitworks   collaborative consumption

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.

Howitworks   risk free group purchasing

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.

Howitworks   secure platform

Secure Platform

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