Items - How do we share them?
If you see
a code "M3" to the right of the 7-digit product code in the UNFI price list,
it signifies that UNFI sells that product by the unit, but requires a minimum
order of 3 units. On the UNFI web site, the term "M3" isn't used; instead
for that product you will see a "3' in the "Min Qty" column in a product
order table. Unfortunately UNFI's software does not allow "M3" products to
be split. So here's how the Food Mill Co-op gets around that:
• To share an "M3" product, enter your request in the special M3 sharing
tab, which is the middle tab of the "Ripon Food Mill Co-op Sharing List
& Schedule" page on Google Sheets. HOWEVER!!!
. . .
• Do NOT add an "M3" product that
you want to share to your on-line Order Cart; instead, our orderers will
take care of ordering it. This is because . . .
• Once the minimum order of 3 units has been met, our orderers (and not
the individual co-op members) will order the "M3" product on behalf of the
co-op. It will appear on the master invoice as having been ordered by the
co-op (so it will never be on your invoice). It will be sold to you at the
delivery as an "extra." By listing it for sharing, you agree to buy it as an
extra when delivered.
• Once the minimum order of 3 units has been met, any additional quantity of
the product may still be requested, following this same procedure (i.e., 3
units is the minimum, there is no maximum).
