Collection Points' FAQ
We are a Group Buy Platform that connects consumers like yourself directly to suppliers. Currently focusing on grocery and household products, we adopt a sustainable model that promotes efficient food distribution. As a group buy platform, we also offer highly competitive prices and attractive deals for you and your community to enjoy together.
Group Buying is coming together with your neighbours, friends and family to enjoy deals by sharing an order. In TreeDots, we come together as location-based communities to purchase together under an order then get our orders delivered to the collection point where we will collect our orders once delivered. Work together as a community to hit the minimum order values of each supplier within the specified group buy period to have your orders delivered!
By connecting suppliers directly to consumers via our platform, we serve as an efficient food distribution channel that wastes no other resources on in-between processes such as storage and buffer stocks (extra stocks to ensure shelves are filled). Furthermore, each supplier has a minimum order value and this allows suppliers to deliver in bulk quantities to a single location, saving resources required in delivering small packages to individual homes.
Representatives help to send marketing materials to their community chat consisting of buyers weekly. Other than pushing for sales, representatives also have to answer product related questions. For app adoption, representatives can share with buyers the buyer’s guide on the process of ordering. On the day of collection, representatives would need to facilitate the collections and ensure that all buyers collect their products within stipulated collection time.

Group Buy Requests submitted on Sunday will be processed on Mondays. Group Buys close 2 days before delivery at 8 pm and are first opened 7 days before delivery day. This means that Group Buys are open for 5 days.
For cancellation of items, please contact TreeDots support in your respective chat group with us. Please reach out with order number and name of buyer.
To view minimum order value and order breakdown for the collection point, track them via the Seller Centre here. For orders that do not meet the minimum order value, it will be rolled over to the next delivery date.
For buyers that carted out at the wrong collection point, please reach out to TreeDots admin with the order number in order to cancel that order. Please advise your buyer to re-order via the app at the correct collection point.
TreeDots will not inform individual buyers that delivery has been made. Representatives will have to inform buyers that products have arrived, and encourage them to collect within an hour timeframe to avoid items thawing or spoiling. However, we will be reminding your buyers via email to collect their items on the day of collection.
