Although we have taken every step to foresee any problems or errors that may happen, this is in no way a Guarantee that this Extension will work with a highly modified OpenCart store or installation. We can certainly help you with basic information but there may be a situation where USING THIS Extension COULD COST YOU MORE MONEY.


The Shared Group Purchase Invitation System is a comprehensive Invitation sales tool. The extension allows customers to make a purchase and invite others to share the cost of the sale. The extension is a great tool for Multi Level Marketing, Fundraising, Cash payouts to others, Cost Sharing of Products or Services, and much more.

The first shared purchase is initiated by a Group Leader/Customer. After the first shared sale is completed, the person that initiated the sale can now invite others to join the sale and either pay for the product or raise money for charity, etc. So anytime that a shared purchase is initiated during the checkout process, that sale will be logged in the customers account as a shared sale. 

In the customer account under my shared purchases is a box that allows the initiator to send invitations of a shared sale to other members. Once the invitations have been submitted, each email recipient will receive an invitation to join a shared sale. 

The person that receives the invitation must have an account registered prior in order for the invitation link to work. After a person logs in to their account they will see a link that says View your Shared Purchases. The newly joined person can now invite others to join the shared purchase and so on...

All transactions are logged in Shared Purchase History. Customers can also make additional payments to the shared sale while on the history page.

Shared sales can also be shared on Facebook, Twitter & Linked in directly from the customers account.

If you have any questions about the installation process or how to use the extension please contact us.
