ORGANIZE A TEAM OF FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO BUY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES IN BULK
Team buying or group buying (also known as store mobbing), is a recently developed shopping strategy originating in China. Several people - sometimes friends, but possibly strangers connected over the internet - agree to approach a vendor of a specific product in order to haggle with the proprietor as a group in order to get discounts.
