Your Customer Wants to Return WHAT???
You know it the instant you see it:  a customer return request to which you want to respond with an emphatic "NO!"  But who wants to tell a customer "NO"?

Before you accept a sales order for an item that you do not want to take back EVER, be proactive:  negotiate a "Special Order Item Acknowledgment" agreement with your customer.

Got a favorite work-related quip?  Or a snippet of wisdom applicable to the world of wholesale-distribution?  Share it with us .
WarehouseTWO Tip of the Month

Post as many items, to as many communities, as your membership level allows.  Offering just a few of your surplus items may not be enough to get a sale.  Buyers come back to WarehouseTWO only if they frequently find what they need to meet their end-customers' needs.  Contribute to a "department store variety" of products, by posting your active inventory in addition to your surplus inventory.
Referral Rewards Program

The easiest way to get more value from your WarehouseTWO account is to increase participation by other distributors and manufacturers.  Over the years, many of you have been loyal "evangelists", recommending WarehouseTWO to peer distributors, to manufacturers and to associations and marketing groups.

We want to encourage and compensate you for the results of your efforts.  To learn more about our "WarehouseTWO Referral Rewards" program, and how you and your company can benefit, click here.
