Some businesses that use Pay By Group charge varying amounts for given inventory depending on the how much inventory is claimed by the participants in the purchase. We call the ranges of potential cost points per share in such purchases price ranges.
In a group with price ranges, the cost for your share is ultimately based on the total number of slots claimed by the group (not necessarily the number of participants, since a single person can claim multiple slots). This can change as more people join.
As a price range example, let’s say you’re invited to join a Pay By Group for a bulk order of custom apparel. A slot of this purchase (which in this case equates to a piece of apparel) may cost $20 each if 10 items are ordered by the group, but $18 each if 20 are ordered, and $15 each if 30 are ordered, and so on.
If a given purchase includes a price range for its inventory, Pay By Group will display all of the pertinent details when you sign up.
