PLACING AN ORDER FOR THE FIRST TIME?
Step 1 - CHECK YOUR EMAIL (INVITE WILL BE SENT WITHIN 48 HRS) Set up your free account with Frontier Co-Op using the 'Get Started' link in your invite email. Fill out the 'Join a Buying Club' form. You will want to make sure all of your information is correct as this is the same information I may use to contact you in the future. If you do not join our buyer’s club within a week, you will have to re-register. If this occurs, please contact us.
Step 2 - SHOP, SHOP, SHOP Be sure to check out the available new products, monthly specials and featured brands. (Some items give additional deeper discounts for buying in Bulk, so pay close attention so you don't miss a good sale.) Add the items you want to purchase to your shopping cart. Your order should show as a Draft under status until you 'Approve' your order. Once it's approved, on the designated day of order cutoff, we will batch our entire group order.
Step 3 - APPROVE YOUR ORDER Any orders not placed in 'Approve' status by the cut off will remain in your cart as a Draft until you’re ready to order. Please do not make any changes AFTER the group order cutoff. If at any time BEFORE the monthly cutoff you need to update your order, you may go into your account and add items. If you have accidentally clicked 'Approved' but aren't done shopping or decide to add items last-minute, click 'Continue Shopping' to add more items. It will go back to Draft status and you will need to re-approve your order.
Step 4 - PAY ORDER ON VENMO Once you've approved your order, please pay for your items via Venmo using this link. Enter the exact amount of your order plus 15%. For example, an order of $100 would be $115 delivered. (Take $100 x 1.15 = $115). Don't have Venmo? It's free to join. **IMPORTANT: Add your name to the NOTE section on Venmo so we know whose payment we've received.**
Step 5 - WE DELIVER The group order all comes as one. We will be responsible for inspecting and hand sorting your order. Your Frontier goods will be delivered to you with your next microgreen delivery date.
