    Hi all,
    I’m not a coder, so I put here this idea here, hoping someone could be interested in developing it.

    What are the Ethical Purchasing Groups (EPG)?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethical_purchasing_groups

    The idea is to use the Buddypress infrastructure and possibly the e-commerce features of WordPress (Woo-Commerce?) to create a purchasing feature for Groups under Buddypress.

    Basicly an EPG is a group of people that buy togheter goods (and services) from local producers. Buying togheter means better price but also the choice to support little producers with ecological approach, that have difficulties in surviving in a competitive market.

    Some softwares for EPG were developed during time, but no one using WordPress/Buddypress.
    Here’s one of them:
