Who can order?
Everyone who wants to advertise for ECG: Individuals, local chapters, (branch) associations and hubs. Because of the dispatch lump sum we recommend to summarize orders regionally. Perhaps you can win also ECG near enterprises for it to order for your group: You can get back the value added tax by means of input tax deduction and receive a donation receipt for this donation in kind from ECG associations.
How can we finance this?
Many groups make use of private donors, ECG-related sponsors or state subsidies. You can ask local authorities. ECG associations can issue receipts for donations.
Why do we not yet know what we will pay in the end?
Our pricing depends on the quantities ordered. If many order, all receive higher discounts. Our goal is: To be as ECG-oriented and as inexpensive as possible, without putting pressure on the supplier inside. If few order this product, we will not exceed the maximum price - otherwise we would contact you.
What do we pay a shipping fee for?
Picking, packing and shipping deliveries is expensive. For online retailers normally the shipping costs are hidden in the purchase price - we present the costs transparently: 15 € costs an average compilation of our delivery up to 10 kg in Germany, to other countries and heavy deliveries become more expensive (please ask) . This year, we have commissioned a company close to ECG with the shipping.
When do we get the final price and when do we transfer?
As soon as we have tendered the orders after receipt of the orders and decided on the best suppliers according to the ECG criteria, we will send you an invoice and ask you to transfer it promptly. We find it unfair to have suppliers wait for their payment.
When will we receive the information material?
We have learned from the delays in 2018 and expect to receive the information by the end of September to mid-October.
Who is behind "Joint Purchasing"?
The project group "Joint Purchasing" consists of Bendix Balke (Supraregional LC Coordinator North-Germany) and Tobias Daur (LC Coordinator DE-Münsterland). We work voluntarily for "Joint Purchasing", in close coordination with the international Communication Hub, but without funds from the ECG movement. You will receive the invoice from Tobias Daur's company "lands", so that companies and organisations subject to turnover tax can save VAT.
