Vendor Quickstart

This article covers benefits for new vendors on Convictional.

If you’re reading this, it means someone wants to buy your products and sell them into a new and unique market. You may have had some experience selling your products through B2B channels both online and offline. You may have even gone down the path of trying to automate aspects of that relationship to make sure adding this new channel allows your business to grow without additional headaches. We’re here to help make getting you setup with your buyer as easy and simple as possible: it’s the basis for what we do at Convictional for our partners.

The exact nature of the relationship between you and your buyer is always unique. That said, there are some advantages that tend to come from the approach our partners take:

  • Get paid when you ship. Most of our partners payout vendors within 24 hours of shipment. We make getting paid out as simple as installing an app, and we automate billing so you don’t have to worry about following up on invoices or thinking about terms.

  • Integrate in 10 minutes. Part of onboarding a new channel partner involves establishing a way to share product information and receive new orders when they happen. We connect to your existing ecommerce platform as an app, to automate orders and products without having to send CSVs and PDFs back and forth. No more manual work.

  • Automate inventory updates. Few things are more frustrating than not being able to control overselling by a channel partner. We will push inventory updates to your partner once an hour, directly from the source, so that you don’t risk overselling your products.

  • Easy sales reporting. Instead of having to deal with yet-another-portal when it comes to your new channel partner, we will pass the order back to your platform with a unique contact email. That means you can keep doing reporting where you do it today, with no implementation and no need to learn a whole new set of product IDs and systems.

Our partners tend to share our belief that this makes doing business with a company on the Convictional platform easy. Your setup is primarily about assigning prices to your products one time and installing a couple apps (for orders, products and billing). Once that is done, you never have to login against unless you want to expand your product mix with your channel partner. Everything happens automatically on a regular basis, and you can receive support when you need it. The best part is that many of our partners cover your costs, so everything we just talked about is free to you. Together, we hope to make your new channel experience as excellent and unique as your brand, and the value that it offers to your new channel partner’s audience.
