What is it about?

Buying Groups Management is a service offered by E-circles that allows you to easily create and manage Social or Collective Buying Groups composed of a large number of families. The management tools provided here are constantly updated and improved on the basis of the suggestions of the groups users themselves.

How much does it cost?

The management system for the Buying Group is free, there are no mandatory costs. The largest and most active Groups support our work with a fee of € 5.00 per year for each active user. We spend 10% of this proceeds, if the Group so wishes, in a promotional campaign in the group's territory, in January.
