Hi all, I had an interesting conversation with @sseerrggii , thks.
here in Valencia we have a coop where we do collective purchases of ecologic and organic products.
Our rudimentary system (still using spreadsheets) work this way.
Each member receives an spreadsheet with all the products and the following columns:
Product name - Product Type - Estimated price per Kg/Liter - Final price per Kg/Liter - Amount to buy - Final eurs to pay
that can be bought and a column of ‘Estimated price’, this is the price without discount from the producer(when enough KGs or EURs are bought of a product, price goes down).
The column Final price per Kg/Liter will get calculate depending on how many KGs or Liters of a product is bought (each producer has different discounts to incentive big purchases and reduce transportation costs)
Is any network of OFN using the tool for collective purchases anyhow? Is there a possiblity that OFN could support this out of the box?
