I hope I put this in the right forum. Can someone who knows how to do this please fill in the Answers below? If this works the way I think it works maybe in the next few months. I may do a group order depending on the answers I get. I understand that I may be able to find this information on the forums, but it is a lot of pages to go through and I have trouble understanding if things aren't put simply.

Typically group orders are organized by one person. That person takes count of what everyone taking part in the group order wishes to purchase. Shipping costs and any other associated costs (like phytosanitary certificates or other paperwork) are usually split evenly between all persons in the group placing the order. One PC is all that is needed per order. All people wishing to take part in the group order send their portion of the order total (including their portion of shipping and other charges) to the person placing the order and then the order is placed. Plants are shipped to the organizer and then forwarded to each person in the group (these shipping costs are usually included as well).
