I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

But I have been wondering the same thing why nobody is giving commission anymore. Especially with these BB products that are hard to get.
Supply and demand... No reason to pay commission when people will buy for you without it.
Life is as good as you make it...

Commission also depends on where they are selling it and what price points...

In my experience commissions are less about there being room for any and more about whether they will get the product Anyways

true , altho i think when commission is offered ppl are more interested/ make a bigger effort to buy ( or attempt to) as opposed to when there is no commission.

But wouldn't one group that offered even $2 for the macbooks end up luring everyone to them?

+1000
theres no need to pay commish if ppl will buy for you anyway.
the amazon 5% card is also a factor, as well as the fact that MS/meeting minimum spends has gotten harder
Selling New Bugaboos starting at $579, PM me

Yeh but I personally would rather give it to the group paying the commission straight up as opposed to getting a PO without commission and having to haggle and go back and forth for them to match.

We need new competing groups to make others pay commission, I am sure there is a quiet agreement on that

Margins are tighter + products are selling alot slower + buyers/supply are rapidly growing

Simple supply and demand issue  union wont help here in my opinion

Shame. I was thinking if I can't make money from commission, then I will make money being a union head. But now you killed that idea too:(
Now I need cash asap
