How do group orders work?
Group order is a feature that allows CrowdFarmers to place orders of boxes together and split the costs. The group order is open for up to 5 people to share. You initiate the order and then you can invite guests to participate in the group order. Here is a step by step guide as to how it works:
- Choose the boxes from the Farmers Market that you want to add to your group order and put them in the basket. In your basket in the next step, choose the “group order” option.
- Confirm the shipping address.
- In the next step, choose the number of guests you want to invite. In this step, the price each person pays will show. Then you pay your part of the total.
- When you have paid your part of the payment, you will be redirected to the order confirmation page, where a pop-up window will show to invite your guests to the group order. In the pop-up window, you can either add the email addresses of the guests, or copy the invitation link and send it to the guests manually yourself. Invitations are also available from your user account and the confirmation email.
- When your guests follow the shared link (or the link from the email message), they will be directed to a landing page with a summary of the group order and a button to continue to pay their part. This will lead them directly to the payment step. The guests will have 3 days to pay their part of the order.
- By completing the payment the guests will be redirected to the order confirmation page.
- When all guests have paid their parts, the order gets shipped to you who then shares the products with all your guests. Happy harvest!
Please note that:
If the guests don’t pay their parts by the deadline, the order will be canceled and the money refunded.
In order to avoid cancellation of the order if the guests don’t pay their parts, you have the option to assume the remaining part of the payment that the guests haven’t paid after the deadline. The remaining part of the payment will then be charged from your payment method.
