Re: Co ops

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.

Re: Co ops

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.

Re: Co ops

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.

Re: Co ops

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.
