What is CoShopNow
CoShopNow.com is like an online shopping cart service, but with additional features. The main additional feature that CoShopNow.com has is that it is built for group ordering. More than one person can place an order on a list of products offered by a seller ("coshop organizer") for a specific cut-off date and time. The total quantity of each product ordered by all the customers ("coshoppers") can be viewed together by the coshop organizer, and he or she can see how many of each product is required for the delivery of all the orders.CoShopNow.com is community-centric. It helps people in the same neighborhood, or same social group, to make purchases collective, and thus not only achieve cost savings, but cement their friendship.
You know that Group Buying can get you wholesale prices, and savings in shipping costs.
It can also help you keep in touch with friends.
But it can be a lot of work, especially if there is more than one product or design involved.
Calculating the bill for each buyer can be so tedious.
Sorting the items for delivery to each buyer can be time consuming.
CoShopNow.com can take the pain out of organizing a group buying, so that you can easily enjoy its benefits.
Yes, you would need to enter some information about the product into your online store, such as description and price, and add at least a photo.
And that's it. All that is left is to invite your friends to join the group buying.
When your friends see your products, they can find the description, and order easily. No repetitive explanation needed.
You can see all the orders in one place, and the total bill is calculated for you, no matter how many products are ordered.
Packing for delivery of individual orders is made less onerous by the Delivery Note built into the program, which will show the orders for each product, and allow for changes.
CoShopNow.com is even more helpful if you organize the same group buying on a regular basis. You can simply add another cut-off date if there is one, or extend the expiration of your online store.
You can use CoShopNow.com for your selected group of friends (a private online store), or, if you want to attract a wider audience, your online store will appear on the CoShop webpage, which is public and is regularly visited by CoShopNow.com members!
Still not sure? The only way to find out if CoShopNow.com is right for you is to try it out. Create a coshop, and see how it works, for you. If a coshop is used for only one cut-off date, it is FREE.
