How Does PPA Work?

What is a group purchasing organization?

The concept of group purchasing is simple; the more the group purchases, the deeper the discounts offered by Vendors to all members of the group. The deeper the discounts to the members for goods and services, the more money members retain in their budgets to meet organizational goals. The buying power of the entire group allows the small organizations to gain the same discounted prices as the larger organizations! You no longer stand alone in the purchasing marketplace and you will experience greater benefits by joining hands with the other members.

How does PPA generate revenue to operate the group purchasing organization?

PPA does not charge any membership fees.  Purchasing Partners of America is fully supported by administrative fees based on the quantity purchases of the members.  Being a social enterprise, a percentage of fees are donated to charitable organizations.
