Groups use Lettuceshare because it saves them time. Orders are collated and emailed to the right people automatically. Invoices are sent to members when buying has finished. Stock lists are updated with one click. If these are things you have to do regularly, then you will love that lettuceshare does them for you!
The software has been developed for a wide variety of groups and businesses. It's been built from the ground up with food sustainability in mind, as well as how to best look after members, volunteers, and staff.
Some of the groups that use Lettuceshare pre-order, while others estimate how much produce members will buy. Some groups meet weekly, while others choose calendar dates to set their ordering and buying times. Want to run a Point of Sale system or Shopping Cart? That's no problem either.
Lettuceshare grew around this need to remain flexible for all the different types of groups using it. As a group administrator you get complete access to these settings, all aspects of how you run your group are customisable.
Please have a look at the documentation to learn more about the system, and create an account to familiarise yourself with how it works. If you would like to receive training in using the software, please get in touch to discuss charges.
So how much does it cost to manage your group on Lettuceshare?
Well the good news is that you can start using it without paying anything! After your group has been set up in Lettuceshare, hosting fees will depend on the number of members buying with you. This cost is $2/month for each member who bought with the group that month, and this is capped at $50/month for unlimited accounts.
Hosting fees are automatically calculated at the end of each month, so for example if 15 individual members purchased during the month at least once, an invoice will be sent for $30. The number of buyers for the month is always displayed on your invoice. If your group decided to take a break, or only wants to order every second month, there will be no costs and you won't get an invoice for that month.
So please create an account, have a look around and feel free to ask any questions you have via email. There are no set up costs and you can take as long as you like to get started.
