AND not to mention, many UB buys don't pass along the 10% discount that applies when a quantity of 10 of a style is ordered.

The person in charge of the group buy should have told her that it would be better for her to order directly from UB.

I've been a member of the group for almost a year now, but am just getting into the swing of chat groups and group buys. Thanks so much for the info, Michelle!

Thank you for the tips. I am new to Hip Girl and didnt know exactly how the group buys worked. You may pay a little more for the product ordering directly but then you dont have to worry about losing your money and the time to settle a dispute.

Thanks again

Quick question about group buys...

What about international orders?
I live in Canada, and my paypal address is to my Canadian address but because I live on the border I normally have everything shipped to my US address (not a PO Box it is an actuall mail depot for Canadian customers).

Would that be an issue for the organizers?

Hello ladies, I just want to say I was scammed on my first group buy. I did all the research and this particular member is a senior member and had organised many group buys so I thought I was safe. It is now too late for me to file a dispute and I have emailed Heather many times for a refund. In my last email she said she would send some of the Pettis minus whatever it would cost to ship to Australia.

I emailed her and said I wanted a refund and I have not heard from her again. I see she is still organising group buys and I am very dissappointed that she is able to continue to do this. I am very sad that I found this forum as it has cost me not just money but trust in others.

I encourage everyone to read this info before participating in any buy, I wish I had as I have found out the expensive way that some buys are not deals at all, when you add the buy fee, paypal fees, some people charge custom fees plus shipping at the end, the item comes to be as much if not more as if you had bought it at the store. Thanks for the information and now I do my homework before giving my money away to anyone, be careful!
