Bulk buying: How to use Pally to share prices with others on Pricepally

Learn how Pally helps you buy food in bulk and save money on Pricepally.

Everyone needs food to survive. But in Nigeria, high food prices threaten survival. For instance, it costs #48,000 to survive on basic food items in Nigeria. For context, that figure is 60.4% higher than the minimum wage (#30, 000). 

However, bulk buying can help you navigate rising food prices. It lets you access discounts while saving transportation costs. Bulk buying also reduces the stress of constant movement to the market, especially if you live in a busy, urban city like Lagos, Port Harcourt, or Abuja. 

Pricepally—the food company connecting people to farm-fresh foods—offers bulk buying through the Pally feature. Now let’s walk you through how it works.

Pally is Pricepally’s “sharing is caring” feature. It lets you share the cost of the food you buy in bulk with others. It lets you shop more and spend less. It also makes bulk shopping convenient: Unlike regular bulk-buying groups, you can pay for your slot without waiting for other portion members.
