Join a Group Buy: Save More with Bulk Buy Discounts

The pandemic has transformed our lives in many aspects and it includes the way we shop. Group buying is the growing e-commerce trend when it comes to shopping for your groceries. Simply put, group buying is coming together with your neighbors, family, and friends to enjoy bulk discounts when you share orders. Is group buying worth it? If you enjoy discounts and sustainable living, then definitely yes!

What benefits do you get from group buying? Once you join a group buy as a buyer, you get discounted prices for all kinds of products. How is this possible? Here at TreeDots, we help to simplify the supply chain by connecting food suppliers who are looking for a platform to offload their surplus inventory to consumers like households and businesses! These items will be sold at discounted prices, and consumers can purchase at much lower prices when they buy in bulk

The benefits don’t stop there. Aside from saving on costs, you can help us in our advocacy to minimize food waste and food loss. Suppliers often have surplus stocks on products that are not aesthetically pleasing, which gets cosmetically filtered out and ultimately ends up in landfills. While these foods may have flaws, the nutrients you get from them are still the same as their perfect counterparts. There’s really no reason to disregard them altogether.

Now that we’ve discussed the advantages when it comes to group buying, the next question would be how exactly do you join a group buy?
