Daily Deals, Group Buying, and More
Group Buying Site is the leading software for presenting group buying deals right from your WordPress dashboard. These deals provide purchasers with vouchers that can be redeemed at physical merchants or online retailers locally and nationally. Most importantly, you can assign purchase limits allowing funds to be collected and vouchers issued only when a threshold of purchasers has been met. Upper limits can also be set on a deal as well as an individual user basis. These deals can be set to expire or run indefinitely and include details and meta data such as images, expiration dates, purchase limits, value and merchant information, including maps.
Even better, your users can register merchants and submit their own deals for your site! Deals can be assigned to locations so users only see the offers close to them, while also being exposed to cross-location offers. With attributes and dynamic pricing, the opportunities for unique pricing structures that fit your business model are endless. You can even offer physical products with or without limits.
Full cart and checkout process
Customers are given a full shopping cart experience, allowing them to add multiple offers to a single cart. Persistent carts allow customers to come back at a later time and complete their purchase, even without login. The checkout process which collects billing information, shipping details (if necessary), and can apply shipping and tax charges on an offer-by-offer basis.
The checkout process supports multiple payment gateways, including Paypal Adaptive Payments, Paypal Payments Standard, Paypal Payments Pro, Authorize.net, and NMI Payments. Many additional gateways are available via add-on, including: Payfast, Payment Express, Beanstream, Pagseguro, Bluepay, Moneris, Sagepay, and more.
Your users can even mark their purchase as a gift and the system will automatically send the voucher(s) to the gift recipient.
Built in notification email management
Group Buying Site includes many email notifications, keeping customers informed throughout the process. All of these notifications can be customized directly within the WordPress Dashboard, including the ability to craft HTML emails.
Merchant Profiles and Directory
Merchants automatically are given a profile page on your site with an image, description, contact information and list of offers. A merchant directory listing allows your user to easily find merchants and the deals that are right for them.
