On group orders
For some time now, I've wanted to start a group order club since I always find myself wanting to order some fish or plants from a website, but never enough that it would justify the cost of shipping. I'm sure I'm not the only one. But, for all the same reasons an aquarium club never took off despite all the attempts, I'm sure one for group orders won't either.
But, I would like to propose something - that we start group orders here, even if it isn't as a club.
For example, maybe you want to order $10 worth of fish from Invertzfactory, but the $15 shipping cost wouldn't be worth it. Make a new post, "potential Invertzfactory group order" or whatever, post when you plan to order, when and where you can meet up with other buyers locally, and split the cost of shipping with them.
Or maybe you're putting down a $80 order with Foster&Smith and they have free shipping for orders over $100, make a post and say you need additional buyers to fill out $20 to get the free shipping. Similarly, maybe you already are making a $100 order that qualifies for free shipping, you could let others piggyback off you so they wouldn't have to pay the shipping fees had they ordered by themselves.
It's just an idea.
