Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join NetPlus?

Suppliers interested in joining NetPlus should complete our inquiry form, and a team member will follow up.

NetPlus evaluates supplier prospects based on categories served and member demand. Our intent is to make several options available to our distributors in each category, and also be selective to build loyalty with NetPlus supplier brands.

We have many different distributors, but the majority serve industrial, MROP, commercial and residential construction, oilfield, fastener, safety and welding verticals. Distributors range in size from family businesses to very large companies with multiple locations. NetPlus distributors come in all sizes, but all benefit from the NetPlus program.

NetPlus captures profile data on each member and gives you access to our Member Portal. Our target list enables our suppliers to utilize this profile criteria to find new distribution and work with members that fit your business.

NetPlus does not charge a fee for a supplier to join the group. We require all preferred suppliers to pay a guaranteed rebate on all member purchases, including existing accounts. NetPlus also encourages suppliers to participate in our marketing programs, annual meeting, and training.

NetPlus collects the base, growth, and individual rebates on behalf of its preferred suppliers each month. Members receive one annual payout of all accumulated rebate by check or electronic transfer.

Suppliers benefit greatly from joining NetPlus by gaining the attention of our members either with existing business or when working to add new suppliers to service their customers. Our meetings, trainings and sales planning process provide focus for them and their organization.

NetPlus keeps our supplier brands top of mind with distributors through our customized marketing programs. Suppliers work directly with our team to create a communications and branding strategy, targeted specifically for NetPlus members.

NetPlus suppliers have access to all NetPlus members, regardless of the product categories that they serve. However, we leave the right to select distribution to the supplier, and our distributors determine the suppliers that they choose to work with in NetPlus.

NetPlus offers two programs to drive engagement with our membership: Points Plus, an incentive program that rewards distributors with additional rebates, and Growth Plus, a sales planning program that allows distributors and suppliers to select activities to grow their business together.

NetPlus does not participate in buying group invoicing. You conduct business directly with distributors and report purchases to NetPlus each month. When you join, we contact the membership, and provide the program and account set-up information on your behalf.

Contact the NetPlus office at (716) 438-2014, or fill out the inquiry form here.
