is this site really dying?

I'm so sad, it was a really good  idea.

I never stopped people from hosting group buys.

i've still been hosting. only a few buy though.

I considered hosting IG bundles here last year, but the 10% margin/no initial bundle pricing rule meant it wasn't (and still isn't) viable. With around 20 buyers (which is what I usually have) I'd be charging buyers less than I'd be paying for my own bundle.

Hey, if the site gained me another another ~20 consistent buyers (who didn't balk at me not having a US/EU Paypal account), I'd definitely be hosting here, but as-is, I can't afford to.

what do you mean "no initial bundle pricing rule"? what is that? i don't see anything about that anywhere.

Detruire The initial goal was to keep prices lower for reservers and at best subsidize first-bundles for hosts to help increase adoption from buyers. However, I never hosted before starting GroupBundl.es and coming up with the current ruleset, and I can see where you're coming from. What ruleset would you suggest instead? How do the Group Buys rules feel? I don't want to impose an undue burden on buyers, but also don't want hosts to feel like they're being ripped off, and I apologize if the rules came off that way.

@Alexandra Will you host bundles?

Cutie Café Cutie Café I think the Group Buy rules are good. They're similar for full buys but also work fine for smaller buys. They're also what I use now since I'm active in the group, and are very close to the pricing I used to use when I wasn't active there.

Yo I am always a consistent buyer. So hope any of you take me into consideration.

I noticed the site has no new group buys lately. I din't get any notifcation regarding payment btw. Its been a while.

part of the problem is cancellations, no idea why stuff gets cancelled mind you. But hey, cheap games.

Detruire I've updated the site hosting rules to match those of Group Buys.
