Buying Group Benefits

A few considerations:

  • If you are currently “trading direct” with all your suppliers you will be paying each account individually. By joining Gainsmore, you will be asked to make one monthly payment – by direct debit.
  • Therefore you will make only 12 payments per year – how many are you making now and what is the cost of making these payments?
  • Imagine – currently you might be using 10 suppliers from our list – how much easier it would be to use one central accounting programme to process your payments and give you direct access to ask any questions as they arise?
  • Gainsmore encourage direct communication from our listed supplier/manufacturers offering an opportunity that doesn’t currently exist.

At Gainsmore offer all the traditional benefits associated with a buying group including:

  • Improved Margins - through our advantageous terms.
  • Extended credit - with our Monthly account facility.
  • Reduced Bank Charges – with one statement – one payment.
  • Reduced administration – only 12 payments per year makes your accounting and administration easier.
  • Independent business advice.

Unique benefits of Gainsmore.co.uk (NO other buying group does this)
