New GB Policy Proposal

I want to throw this out to all the vendors and GB folks out there. The V6P board has been debating this for many months and we decided to put it out here to the vendors and members to discuss.

How do you guys feel if V6P opened up our policy of not allowing conflicting group buys?

This would give more folks a chance to offer GB w/o having to wait until one is finished. However, the caveat is, there's a chance that someone will offer a lower price than your GB.

This is obviously good for our members, but will impact each GB vendor since they would have paid $50 to put up the GB and V6P will not refund GB payments.

Tell us what you think.

Thanks for your support of V6P!

Dizzy and V6P Board

Are you saying currently you do not allow more then one group buy of a specific item to occur at any given time? If so I'm kinda ok with that as long as the person running the group buy has gotten a commitment from x number of members. That person has taken the time to do the research and get the prices and paid the $50 fee for running a group buy only to have it swept out because someone can come in $5 cheaper? IF it's the same item and x number of people have agreed to it, then I think you should only allow one group buy at a time, however - at that point you may need to set limitations of how long a group buy may take place, ie 1 month 3 months 6 months, etc. I hope I'm reading into it correctly. However, I'm assuming this has nothing to do with multiple group buys of different items at any given time. Just my thoughts.

No holds barred. Allow the competition, and as many different products that the vendor can offer. One of the great things that I love about Honda-Tech is the availability of ANY part that I need for almost any application.

What I'm trying to say is:

Say I offer Brand Name X Coilover's for $500 then Joe can't offer the SAME brand and ITEM for $475 until the group buy is over.

HOWEVER

If Joe wants to start a group buy for Brand Name A for $475 then by all means, 'no holds barred'

You have to consider that someone has done the research and has commited $50 to START a group buy. I understand that competition is good, but for some of us who do group buys are doing this in our spare time & money. $50 isn't much - but that's $50 that I could use towards a new CF hood

Thanks,

Dave

I agree with this only because you have to pay $50 to start a GB. If you didnt then I would agree that no hold barred would be fine. I think everyone should have the opportunity to make a profit. I would think that vendors would post GBs with competitive prices and the member would do shopping to see if the prices are actually any good.

I agree with this. Many places are run like this. Where no conflicting buys are allowed, but you have to set a time limitation otherwise that person would just run the GB forever. Its a good idea not to have bad blood among vendors.

Also, I think an automated or diffrent type of payment system should be implimented. Anytime I want to make a GB, and PM you or someone else, it takes weeks or longer for anyone to reply to me. And thats if I even get a reply at all. I would imagine if I'm going to pay you $50, you would get back to me in a timely manner.

Allow competition. If one vendor can get it cheaper than another why not. Also, sometimes price difference wont affect from who they buy. Its the customer service and previous experience with that certain vendor that will keep or lose a customer not $5. And if you are saving $25+ thats quite a bit of money.

You only have to pay to hold a GB correct?

Can still gauge interest? cause I don't want to pay $50 dollars for nothing.

Yes, we will still allow vendors to gauge interest. We're leaning toward opening up the marketplace. Most of the members want it and a few vendors have said it would be better than waiting months for another vendor to finish. Either way, vendors can change the pricing to match each other as well.

We're going to give it a shot for a few months and see how it goes.

Thanks for all of your inputs.

this is true and I agree with it.

However if a vender pays $50 for a group buy and someone steals all his customers to another group buy and is out $50 thats dosen't seem fair. Maybe only charge $50 if the group buy goes through and is completed.

but if you only allow one that means that the consumers will not get the best pricing since seller/vendor knows that they are only seller at present time. Whereas, if competition was allowed the seller/vendor would most likely have the best price. Then others would not open a group buy if there price is only $5 or $10 less, that would be just stupid.
