Co ops
 
What exactly is a co op? I see some members have a Co-Op Participant banner under their avi.

It is a group buy for a discounted rate. You have to have 500? posts and so many feedbacks on this sight and other sights.

Yes its a cooperative group buy. So for instance if we as a group order 500 diapers we get x price if we hit 750 we get a bigger discount y. It depends on the actual buy.

We run coops from everything from wahm wares to diapers clothing you name it.

The 500 must be the swaps as there is a get to know me thread because op wants to get to 500 posts to do something. As she is way past 50 posts it must be the swaps then.

Ok and what's a swap?

a swap is like themed gift giving. SOmetimes new, handmade or used, depends on the swap.

Each has a value. For instance a childrens christmas swap each box must be new worth 20.00. YOu send a box and get one in return.

Or a handmade coop may be knitted items. Or a used book swap with so many books ect.

The reason for the higher limit is there is a greater impact if somone flakes. In a coop no pay no order. But in a swap a mama can put her heart into a box and its crushing to nit get anything in return.
