it varies from each of the group buys. Often times, the members here say they will buy something and then the contact info of the Company is given out. You would call or e-mail said company and place your order.

When you do a group buy make sure the company is a reputable company catch an interest in what people want like coilovers tell them how many people would i need to get for the best price possible and once you have people committed it gets going from there but like said the more people involved the better the discount.

Best payment method would be with the company so if anything happens the company is responsible

that is my preferred method. Although sometimes I have seen the organizer act as a middleman. This generally works better for smaller/cheaper items, but I would be hesitant to do it this way.

Yes the company should be well aware of the group buy all you would do is say im from tacoma world heres my screen name and should go from there, best to talk to the company and say how they would like the payment method to be done clears up alot
