Help and Guidelines- Overview - Group Buying


Using the Cooperative buying features in Localfront is easy. There's only a few steps needed to start buying as a group:


1

Creating and Joining Group Requests

Create or Join a Group

Members create or join a group

Groups can be open to everyone or private and anonymous.  

Let's say there's a service or product you are thinking of getting. You just create a group buying request to let everyone know and join your request.

You just need to manage a group that you create or use the General Localfront Buying Group when creating your request.  


Organizer creates a request

As a request organizer, create a group buy request to let everyone know your intention to buy.
