Our company already has an online store. Why do we need to work with the Marketplace?
The Marketplace and an online store are not mutually exclusive. They are two separate channels that, together, increase a company's market reach. A company's online store cannot achieve the same traffic volume as the Marketplace because we promote both the suppliers and the Marketplace itself. SPL invests its own resources in attracting customers. You join a platform on which every user is a potential customer - 100% guaranteed.
How does SPL differ from other websites that offer to sell our parts?
These are aggregators-intermediaries that sell the goods themselves and don't provide you with data on the client base (buyers). They do not promote suppliers or respond to the specific features of this specialized field. For example, product cards do not reflect the needs of the target audience and there is no cataloguing. Most such companies focus on spare parts for trucks, devoting less attention to spare parts for specialized machinery. SPL was created specifically for the specialized machinery market and takes into account the needs of both suppliers and customers.
Won't competitors see our prices?
Yes, but offline customers can also analyze offers and take their busienss to a competitor. Ultimately, a successful supplier is one who can reduce overhead while remaining close to the customers, quickly responding to their requests. SPL gives you that opportunity. In addition, we plan to provide analytical data on pricing policies and recommend prices for your products. This tool will allow you to "keep your finger on the pulse" of the business and increase your competitiveness.
We do not have an IT specialist to set up synchronization with the Marketplace. Does that mean we can't work with SPL?
After you sign the contract, we'll create a storefront for you and upload your product data. We will train your employees via the test mode. We can also set up the synchronization with your accounting system (if access is available).
Why do we pay SPL a commission?
This payment goes for IT infrastructure, fast Internet access, promotional activities, your personal account with analytical data, service support, and, most importantly, an increase in your market share. And, you pay only for results without risking anything. You can also give the platform a try by uploading goods of a certain price category, then decide at a later date if you want to upload all of your merchandise or only certain types of products to the Marketplace.
How do I get started with the Marketplace?
Submit an application. Our manager will contact you to answer your questions and explain the principles of the Marketplace. Next, answer a short questionnaire about your company and we will prepare a contract.
