In the wholesale industry if you are a customer that becomes a company’s top buyer, you often begin to receive the VIP treatment: The preferred customer treatment that becomes a perk for top buyers. As a top buyer, you can expect a greater deal of care that goes into handling your order and ensuring its safe and expeditious delivery. In the business world, creating solid business relationships is a must if a you are going to prove successful as a company or as one who is working with a said company. Good business relations involve a willingness to help the other and good communications between all parties. Being a helpful buyer will cause the supplier to see you in a different, more favorable light. Bulk Purchases Wholesale companies appreciate bulk orders for buyers. They are easier to manage, more cost effective, and of course, the company is selling a greater amount of product with a bulk order. Even in times when a buyer requests a special order, if the order is in bulk, the wholesaler will appreciate the order. Regular bulk purchases are definitely the way of gaining the favor of a supplier. What’s more, you benefit from bulk ordering through monetary savings and a greater supply of product on hand for your customers. Regular Ordering Whether you buy in bulk or not, placing regular orders will ensure regular interaction with your selected wholesaler. Working with a few select suppliers and ordering from those suppliers regularly shows your loyalty and, of course, helps the wholesaler maintain their bottom line. As you offer your loyalty to your wholesaler, the supplier is more apt to reward you for that loyalty via preferential treatment. Feedback and Word of Mouth There is really nothing more flattering to a wholesale supplier than to have you spread the word about their company, products, and services through word of mouth and other feedback methods. Giving out references and positive feedback is, essentially, serving up some free marketing for the supplier. Feedback can be word of mouth, on social media outlets, online reviews, or testimonials. Making some references and offering positive feedback will help you earn the favor of a wholesaler with ease. Timely Payments If you do not pay for your order immediately, make your payments timely. By offering payments on time, you are showing the wholesaler you appreciate the buyer/supplier relationship. It also strengthens the trust between buyer and supplier.
