FAQ’S

WHAT'S INCROWDING?

inCrowding is the process of buying consumer products using the power of 1,000’s of individual consumers who buy directly from the Manufacturer in order to save money as a group of connected consumers.  We don’t mark up the products sold on the site to make money, instead we charge a small monthly membership fee so we can keep offering products at the actual manufacturers prices.  You can buy in bulk or just one item, it’s up to you!

HOW DOES IT REALLY WORK?

At first, the process may seem a bit confusing but the advantages of inCrowding is well worth the time it takes to understand our process.  First, we start by finding high quality products our members would want to purchase.  Then we contact the manufacturer and negotiate the lowest quantity prices for their products.  Because most manufacturers are overseas, we must purchase enough product to fill up a 20 ft shipping container.  Each manufacturer has hundreds of products that can be purchased, so in order for the order to go through, we set a MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) that must be reached before we can submit that order to the manufacturer.  When you find a product on our site that you want, you Pre-Order it.  We don’t charge your card until we reach the MOQ for that product group and are ready to place the order with the manufacturer.  When the MOQ is reached we place the order with the manufacturer who begins manufacturing the products our members ordered.  This can take a few days to a few weeks depending on manufacturing lead times.  When the products are finished, the manufacturer ships the products to the port and then our freight forwarder arranges shipping to our distribution warehouse in Jacksonville FL where the shipping container is broken down and products shipped to individual members who ordered them.

HOW ARE THE PRODUCTS PRICED?

Our listed price includes the base price per unit that the manufacturer charges, the Port to Port Shipping costs and handling.  The cost for shipping the product to you is calculated during checkout.

IS THERE A LIMIT ON HOW MANY ITEMS I CAN BUY?

No, In fact we encourage you to order items in bulk so we can reach our MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) quicker.  You can buy one item or 500, it’s up to you!

HOW MUCH CAN I REALLY SAVE?

Our members can save up to 75% off retail prices by using inCrowding to buy the things they want.  We not only cut out retailer markup’s, but we also cut out the wholesalers and allow you to order directly from the Manufacturer!  Once you use inCrowding to purchase items, you will never want to pay retail again!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY ORDER?

Due to the nature of our process, receiving your products can take up to 2 months.  Because we don’t sell products in the same manner retailers do, our lead times are longer and involve multiple steps in order to facilitate each order.  We will be offering a service in the future where we source products from manufacturers located in the United States to cut down on shipping time.

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN FEE'S?

No, we make sure you know all of the cost’s associated with membership and buying products on inCrowding.com.  Below are a list of all our fee’s:

Monthly Membership Fee – $9.99

Port to Port Shipping – This is calculated by taking the shipping cost divided by the number of products in the container

Handling – $1.14 per product

Final Destination Shipping – This is the cost to ship the item to you from our warehouse in Jacksonville FL via UPS or FedEx

There are no other fee’s beyond the fee’s listed above.

HOW MUCH IS IT TO JOIN?

Joining inCrowding is simple, inexpensive and highly rewarding.  We only have one membership option which gives complete access to all of our deals and only cost’s $9.99 a month! Just one medium sized purchase in a year could easily save you enough money to pay for the whole year!  Remember, we don’t make money selling products, we offer our members a service of sourcing, negotiating and managing the order fulfillment process giving them access to products at true Manufacturers prices.
