Group Buys

Group buys are a great way to get many people involved in projects, get some new toys and maybe save some money at the same time.

Starting a group buy

Please post a message on the mailing list with your idea, starting the subject with [group buy] if possible.

If you can get enough people interested, start a wiki page in the group_buys category with the details (supplier, estimated pricing, contact details, shipping details etc).

Until we have a defined template for these, please include the following:

* Your name, or the organiser's name

* A table of names/contact details for people who have opted in to the group buy

* (optional) A link to the mailing list archives if you started your group buy idea there

I need someone (probably me) to build a wiki template for a group buy page –Adam B

Shipping and delivery

Shipping to a MHV member

* How should this be handled?

AusPost Parcel Lockers

I'm not sure if MHV could sign up as an organisation to get one of these, but they're free to individuals

* Won't accept courier deliveries, but anything that gets handed off to Australia Post (USPS, HK Post, China Post etc) is fine

AusPost Parcel Pick Up

* Need someone to investigate this

Opting in or out

* Add your name or remove your name to the wiki page (?)

Shipping Forwarders

Am I allowed to recommend one? –Adam B

* Please discuss with the supplier first before resorting to using a shipping forwarder. Some suppliers won't like the use of these and they will always incur an extra cost


* How does CCHS handle this?
