I'm so sad, it was a really good idea. :(
I never stopped people from hosting group buys.
i've still been hosting. only a few buy though.
I considered hosting IG bundles here last year, but the 10% margin/no initial bundle pricing rule meant it wasn't (and still isn't) viable. With around 20 buyers (which is what I usually have) I'd be charging buyers less than I'd be paying for my own bundle.
Hey, if the site gained me another another ~20 consistent buyers (who didn't balk at me not having a US/EU Paypal account), I'd definitely be hosting here, but as-is, I can't afford to.
what do you mean "no initial bundle pricing rule"? what is that? i don't see anything about that anywhere.
Detruire The initial goal was to keep prices lower for reservers and at best subsidize first-bundles for hosts to help increase adoption from buyers. However, I never hosted before starting GroupBundl.es and coming up with the current ruleset, and I can see where you're coming from. What ruleset would you suggest instead? How do the Group Buys rules feel? I don't want to impose an undue burden on buyers, but also don't want hosts to feel like they're being ripped off, and I apologize if the rules came off that way.
@Alexandra Will you host bundles?
