    The GB Process From Start To Finish

    THE GB PROCESS START TO FINISH

    1. CREATING A GB

    Anyone can create a GB, but there is a specific way in which to do so. Follow these steps to understand the process of creating a GB.

    1a. Where do I create my GB Thread?

    For Business GBs, go to the Business GBs Discussion Section:
    http://groupinsiders.com/forumdispla...ussion-Section

    For Medical GBs, go to the Medical GBs Discussion Section:
    http://groupinsiders.com/forumdispla...ussion-Section

    1b. How do I create my GB Thread?

    Use the post New Thread button on the left side near the top of the screen. It is best to have an idea of the layout of a GB before doing so. A general template can be found in the following thread:
    http://groupinsiders.com/showthread....uide-Templates

    And also take the time to see how other GBs look.

    Once the "Post New Thread" Screen appears, you will need to select:

    Information
    Prefix = [DISCUSS GB]
    Title = the name of the Group Buy. The general rule here is:
    AUTHOR NAME - PRODUCT NAME
    Body of Thread = following the template from above fill in the body of the thread.


    Make sure the body of the thread has sufficient information to help sell the GB to others. Don't make members have to go off to other sites to obtain information about this GB. Include what is relevant. Include sales page link, and cost of product.

    Then click "Submit New Thread" button.

    2. AFTER THE GB HAS BEEN CREATED

    This process will create your GB, and place it in the correct Section. This allows for the discussion to start, and the interest to be created, and for members to show their interest in the GB, and what price point they are interested up to.

    The generally accepted format is for members to put their name on the list, making sure to have the most recent list to add to. Have the list numbered, showing user name, and the amount you are willing to contribute up to.

    This allows admin to get a sense of the interest levels in this GB, and the amounts members are generally willing to pay.

    3. WHEN THE GB IS READY TO GO OFFICIAL

    This mean that admin are ready to create a payment link. Only admin create the Official GB thread. Admin create it based off of the Discuss GB thread. Members will be informed of this new thread, in both the old Discuss GB thread, and by PM.

    The Official GB Thread will contain all the relevant information for members to make their purchase. This includes the payment link, payment code, the cost of a seat, and the number of seats.

    Admin will keep members informed of GB progress within the Official GB Thread. Once the allocated number of seats have been reached the GB will be closed. Once a GB is closed, except in rare circumstances, that means the GB is closed.

    Please do not PM admin asking to be allowed in. Don't PM admin saying you were having payment troubles, but you now want in. You have time whilst it is open to publicly list your payment difficulties, and this allows admin to know about them and to assist you.

    3a. How is the pricing structure for GBs worked out?

    To work out the cost of a seat on a particular GB, admin need to take into account the following:

    Information
    Product Price
    +
    Site Fees: 20%/$200(one or the other - whichever is the higher)
    +
    10.5% Payment Processor Fees
    +
    $3.00 per seat Upload Fees


    Whilst this may seem somewhat complex at first (admin use a spreadsheet to assess many seat prices for each GB), this formula is given to allow members to get a sense of how prices are worked out. Many questions are received querying the prices given here, so hopefully this will help alleviate most of these concerns.

    Please understand that these prices need to be factored in to allow for all costs to be covered. Sometimes GB don't raise enough funds, or unexpected costs arise, all of which is covered by this site.

    4. HOW DO I ACCESS MY GB?

    A very good thread that covers a lot of these details can be found here:
    http://groupinsiders.com/showthread....irst-Group-Buy

    Things you need to know and understand:

    You will receive access to your GB via a private part of the forum where only those who paid for that particular GB can access.

    You will be informed of this via a PM.

    It may not be immediately. Whilst admin don't wish to delay things to long, the time taken can vary, from days to weeks. And for the sake of transparency and honesty, the few rare ones that take many months. This is the regrettable and frustrating end result of about 1 or 2% of our GBs. From which you can safely assume that the vast majority of GBs do work out, amd work out fine. This is the experience admin want all members to have here.

    Also, don't go asking if a product been bought yet, or how long until access becomes available, or other such questions relating to a GB purchase. It wont ever be answered, no matter how many times members ask. The reason is simple: security. Security for our buyer, our members, and our site.

    [FAQ] Frequently Asked Questions for GBs

    Information

    GB Rules:

    Anyone can start a GB - follow previous posts in this thread to understand the process.

    Only admin create the Official Thread for the GB. This is decided in conjunction with the GB participators, and is determined by the number on the interested list, and whether admin feel costs can be covered.

    Admin will organise a buyer (and it isn't necessarily the GB originator, these are separate functions. The buyers identity is never revealed).

    No one can supply a product themselves, as previously mentioned, admin organise purchase.

    Everyone pays the same amount for their seat on the GB.

    NO trading, selling, or soliciting of such things will be allowed or tolerated. This will result in an instant ban.

    NO refunds are allowed. The monies raised are used to make the purchase. Please choose wisely before making your seat purchase.

    If the course has been terminated by the author, (this happen rarely. It only happened twice and before the existence of GI. It happened on FUB) members won't be compensated nor refunded. The money is paid to the author and hence we can't pay you back.

    All decisions admin take in regards to the running of this forum and the way GBs are organised and structured are for the purpose of everyone's safety and security - buyer, members, admin, forum.



    Information

    OnGoing GBs:

    This is the Section where already completed GBs are located. You CANNOT access these, unless you purchased a seat whilst it was open. Do not ask for access, it will not be granted. Do not send admin PMs with offers of extra money for entry to any of them. It doesn't matter how much you really-really want that GB.



    Information

    After You Have Made Your Payment:

    From the [Official GB] Thread, for each particular GB you will find, located in post#1:

    1. Payment link
    2. Product code
    3. Product price
    4. Number of seats available.

    Once you have made your payment, return to the [Official GB] Thread to make a note of your payment. This allows admin to keep an eye on who has paid and cross check it with our system records.

    Do NOT PM admin to tell that you have paid.

    Do NOT PM admin asking when will the product be purchased, or delivered. Do NOT ask these in the thread either. Please allow the process to take place, and you will be informed when your GB is ready.



    Information

    My name was not on the list - can I still participate in the GB?

    Short answer - yes.

    The purpose of the list is to generate and gauge the level of interest in a product before deciding whether to make the GB official or not. Whilst those on the list do get a priority, this is difficult to manage. Generally those on the list will be PMed once a payment link is available, and should it sell out before they have had a chance to respond (so long as it is a matter of hours, not days), they will be assisted to participate, because they were on the list.

    So, if a payment link is available and been made public, you may participate. Do not PM admin to tell them so, or ask permission.

    Once payment link is available, and my name wasn't on the list, do I need to go back and add it?

    No. As stated above, the purpose of the list is to see what level of interest exists BEFORE making a decision to go ahead with the GB. Once that decision has been made, the list is no longer needed..



    Information

    Active Subscriptions and "MyGB" Tab.

    Active subscriptions (which can be found at the payment page link: http://groupinsiders.com/payments.php ) will show the GBs that you have paid for. This list will update once payment has been made, for automatic payments made through the payment link. The only reason this page wont show up is when there are no GB available foe purchase (and therefore no payment link page). This is an unfortunate part of the forum software, but it doesn't mean you have lost any of your GBs).

    MyGB tab, which is available on the home page, near the top of screen with the other tabs, will show your GBs and the links to the private section, once they are available. You will be notified of their availability via a PM. Please note that these two areas of the forum work slightly differently to each other. MyGB tab wont show a link just because you paid, but only when made available.




    Information

    Does a GB have to close before admin organise product purchase?

    Not necessarily. Whilst admin will not disclose if product has been purchased or not (except as circumstances allow), admin will not start a GB and allow a products purchase deadline to be missed, or choose to keep a GB open longer than normal, but make members wait as a result.

    What you need to take from this: there is a lot of organisation that goes on in the background that will not get revealed, but admin work as hard as possible to deliver products as timely as possible. Mistakes happen, and we aren't perfect, but we wish to see product in your hands as quick as possible so you may implement and learn.That is the whole purpose of this forum.




    Information

    Do I need any special programs to access the GBs?

    GBs are zipped up into .rar files. There are many programs that will compile these and unpack them for you. Probably the most widely used is winrar. Available here http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

    If your GB has files split into multiple parts (such as file.part1.rar, file.part2.rar,etc) download all these into the one folder, and when complete, use winrar (or equivalent) to unpack them, by opening part1 only. The program will unpack all the parts together.

    To organise the download of multiple files, use a download manager, such as Internet Download Manager (IDM), which is available from their website, but you will need to pay a small fee for it. In my experience, this price is worth it. Otherwise search torrent sites. http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/

    The files can be downloaded individually, but the above program will soon become an important part of your program collection, once you realise just how much work it saves you.

    For Macs, either use the above if they are available for Macs, otherwise their equivalent, which would be easy to find with a quick search.

    For Macs, either use the above if they are available for Macs, otherwise their equivalent, which would be easy to find with a quick search.
