Re: Group ordering Click for last post

This suggestion comes from caliza

Here's what I'd propose for how to do this: Everyone participating makes a list of what they want from the site, we go and create a 'shopping cart' or whatever with everything in it, but don't actually follow through with the order the first time. That way we can see what the shipping costs would be for the whole package. We divide that cost between everyone who is participating (depending on the size of orders it could be evenly, or if say one person is ordering 5 items and someone else only 2, that person may pay a bit more...), and then everyone pays the cost of their items + taxes + their portion of the shipping.

Once I get the orders, I'll go to the post office and find out the costs for shipping to each individual person is, then I'd let each person know how much it'd be for me to send to them and then once I got that money from them I'd send it out...

(FYI, I live in Ottawa ON and am from Burlington ON - so for anyone in or close to Ottawa we can arange pick up and same goes for anyone in or near Burlington, I'll be home there around Easter...) </lj>
So right now we need to know what people want. :) I'll run the 'test order'.

Does anyone know if GIFTFORYOU09 still works? It does! :) On larger orders it just about covers shipping!

I wouldn't be looking to make this order until late March, early April, for the record. :)

the sad fact is shipping a parcel to someone in canada is $11, at least that's what it's been with any swaps i've done. i've shipped a frothy to ontario for $11, so it might not be worth it unless people are within driving distance to one another.

I honestly don't mind paying shipping, if it gets me retro products... but I can't speak for everyone else.

I shipped frothy + half a candy cane bubble bar to Vancouver for nine dollars.

oh i know, but the shipping on lush is only $12 for your order, that's why i said that. if you're ordering a LOT it might just be easier to place your own order, unless you were within driving distance. i've actually stopped swapping with people in canada because it's too expensive to ship. i can order the stuff retro from lush for cheaper :(

Well if most people can get it picked up... :)

I just don't have a credit card, but want things off the website. :( -Shakes fist-

I might be up for this come around June/Later. From Ottawa, but I spend a lot of time back and forth between Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto. Come June I would also be willing to place the orders also.
