Trade Account Benefits

Gene Goforth - Saturday, September 16, 2017


We're not just an online shopping cart. Let our expertise help you grow your business.


Today’s commerce is quite different than what it was 30 years ago. As a matter of fact, it is vastly different than just 5 years ago. As more and more people shop on the internet for that “pie in the sky” deal it seems price and what is free is driving the market these days. Brick and mortar showrooms have to compete with "free shipping", "no sales tax" and lower than usual profit margins because of the internet.


This may be great for consumers but what about "trade" customers? Is it really just about price? You have to ask yourself, "If I buy a house full of hardware or plumbing online and need help with problems or just need help making sure that what I am buying will work, is there someone with the knowledge on the other end to answer my questions?" Thousands of dollars and your reputation are on the line here.You want a good deal but most importantly you need a partner that can assist you and make sure the order is correct, will function as specified, is a fair price and that there is no need for costly returns. You want someone who has experience building and maintaining complete job schedules, who can make sure you are getting what you need and that all of the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed. You want a company behind you that will maintain your job histories and assist you if a warranty or technical problem arises.


The solution is here.
