I don't know about other labs, but FTDNA will work with you just about
any way you need as an administrator in terms of paying for kits for
others. Generally, when the kit is returned, I just give them my credit
card number and that's all there is to it. Of course, then have to know
this in advance.

I also pooled resources and have purchased 4 kits for others this way.
far I have had to plead and beg all of them to return their kits. Three
still outstanding months later.
If people aren't financially invested or if genealogy isn't their hobby
don't care. I have been terribly disappointed bythose who have said they
would do it and then not. I won't buy another kit based on someone's
they will do it. Everything was well explained up front. I would have
they said no than to get my hopes up.
Next time I might try; "you pay for it and when the kit is returned I
reimburse you" or have it invoiced and when the kit is returned I pay
it. But will the labs do that?
