Frequently Asked Questions

This is a big topic for our service and we have a whole page explaining that. Here is the link.

To maintain consistency and reliability, we employ serializers that validate and ensure the presence of essential fields across all supplier data.

This process guarantees that the data you receive is uniform and complete, regardless of the supplier.

The list of supported suppliers can be found in the footer of the page.
Be aware that if you are going to provide your supplier's username and password the list of supported suppliers is pretty large and if you need us to integrate to a supplier you can contact us to make it happen.

This charge is applied when the distributor buys a quantity less that minimum. Not all products can be bought in such quantities.

In order to get the real pricing for your company, you need to:
  • add the credentials for your supplier in our platform

Remember that some suppliers don't return Customer data, so you might need to use List Pricing and use the Discount Code to get your pricing or use Net Pricing and add all the charges

No, we are not.
We are helping distributors in the Promotional Industry communicate via REST/JSON API with suppliers already implementing PromoStandards.
However, we use serializers that ensure the fields are present although they may be None(null) sometimes even if the Standards say it shouldn't be. That is because at least one Supplier got this wrong and we can not guess the default value when None.

EQP stands for "End Quantity Pricing" in the promotional industry. It is a pricing model commonly used by suppliers in this sector. Under EQP, the highest quantity price break is applied to all quantities of a promotional product, regardless of the actual quantity ordered. This means that customers benefit from the lowest unit price even when purchasing smaller quantities.

This pricing strategy is often used as a sales incentive or as part of promotional offers to distributors or end-users. It encourages larger orders by offering significant cost savings, making it an attractive option for buyers looking for the best deal on promotional products. EQP can vary between suppliers and products, and it's crucial for distributors to be aware of EQP offers as they can significantly impact the pricing and competitiveness of their product offerings.
