Absolutely! Hosting is available to all who have good standing within the trading community, and can follow the simple rules below. You can apply here. The application process is automated and looks at your reputation on several trading sites. Depending on your standing, the application may be automatically approved, pending manual action, or outright denied. GroupBundl.es staff can approve or deny manual applications, and can view application appeals. You'll receive a private message if your application is approved. You can apply once every 48 hours.
If you are already a host, go to each item page and look for the "create" button. Fill out the form, and your item will be available on GroupBundl.es.
Our profit rules match those of Group Buys. Hosts may charge a 6% commission on group buys. The price of the first required purchase as part of a multipack (i.e. at Indiegala) may be split among reservers, but this must be included within your profit margin.
If you are accepting marketable Steam items, you may charge an additional 10% (for Steam fees), up to $0.50. N.B.: the Gem calculator on-site automatically accounts for Steam fees. If you use it, you should not add an additional 10%.
The examples below assume that the price of a Sack of Gems is $0.74.
PayPal fees are calculated by the site. When entering prices, assume that the typical user will not have to pay fees. Users will be warned before reserving if fees may may apply to them based on the country they and you are accessing GroupBundl.es from.
Each reserver's key or keys are separated by two newlines (pressing the Enter key twice). For example:
* Game 1 - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL * Game 2 - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL * Game 3 - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL * Game 1 - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL * Game 2 - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL * Game 3 - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL
Technically, yes. However, it goes against the site's norms. Users expect to receive their keys on-site, and to contact hosts on-site with any concerns either through on-site private messages or group buy comments. GroupBundl.es staff won't be able to provide much help should you decide to handle distribution this way, and you should definitely let your reservers know in every group buy description that you intend to be communicated with off-site.
No. GroupBundl.es staff will be monitoring split buys to ensure prices are fair. Prices must add up to the full bundle's price.
We politely ask that you do so; it's more transparent to reservers. However, it is not required.
No. The screening process exists to prevent bad actors from exploiting or abusing the system. You are more than welcome to host as little or as much as you like as long as you maintain a positive standing within the trading community. The GroupBundl.es staff team reserve the right to revoke host privileges from anyone, at any time, for any reason.
No. USD is the only fiat currency that is supported at this time. We don't currently have plans to support other fiat currencies.
You can accept any payment method GroupBundl.es supports:
If you plan to price your bundles using Steam Economy tokens, please contact me.
