Group Order Information
(group ordering is only available
to U.S. customers)
If you are placing a paper order, please read these instructions.
If you are a member of a group
and want to place an order as part of that group: First get
the group order number, available from your group coordinator. There will
be a separate number for each division, if your coordinator has chosen to order from more than one division. Log in using your email address on the “Order Online” page for the division
you want to order from. When you review your order prior to checking out, click the
“Part of a Group” button as your shipping option. Then go to “Checkout Securely”
and type in the group order number where indicated. You will receive a confirmation email at the address you used to log in. Until your coordinator places the order, however, Fedco cannot confirm receipt of your order.
If you are a group coordinator and want to set up online
group orders for your group, please follow these steps:
1. Go to the group coordinator homepage by clicking on the
link at the bottom of this page.
2. Enter your email address then click the “Log In”
button. We will use this address to send you confirmations
of your members’ orders, and you will use it to log back in
to monitor your group’s activity and to submit your

your name, your group name, the zip code to which orders would
be shipped (even if you plan to pick up), and the phone number
where we can reach you. Then click on the “Validate
Info & Create Account” button. Choose the “Start
Order” button for each division of interest, which will
assign a number for your group order. The “Start Order”
button is greyed out for divisions not currently accepting
4. Tell your group members the group name and group order
number(s), as they will need that information to place their
orders online. They choose “Part of a Group” as
their shipping option, and during checkout, they enter the
group order number to add their order to your group order.
They will get an email confirmation of their order and you
will also get a copy of the email.
5. Once you have created a group account, you can log in
on the group coordinator homepage to check on your active
group orders, delete individual orders if needed, complete
and submit group orders, and start group orders for other

7. To complete and submit a group order, log in to the group
coordinator page and click the “View Order” button
for the appropriate division. Review the individual orders
in your group order. When you have determined that all the
members of your group who are going to order have placed orders,
click the “Checkout & Submit Order” button
to begin to complete the group ordering process and submit
the group order to Fedco. It is at this point that your actual
shipping method is chosen. Once you submit your group order,
the individual ordering process for that order is closed.
You may start a new group order (which will have a new order
number) if members of your group still want to place orders
with the group.
Please be aware that each piece of an online group order
must be placed online. If you have members who cannot place
their orders online, consider placing their orders yourself,
or submitting a separate group order on paper.
