buypackaging is free to join for purchasers and suppliers of packaging materials. No cost is incurred by purchasers for registration or to create product specifications. Registration and the submission of offers are also free for manufacturers. For purchasers, a small usage fee is incurred only if they invite bids for products via buypackaging and do not choose any of the suppliers via the platform. If the supplier’s bid is accepted by the purchaser on buypackaging, the purchaser passes on the usage fee to the supplier. The bid invitation is then completely free for the purchaser.
