Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a NetPlus member?

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

What are the growth results of NetPlus members?

NetPlus growth continues to outpace the industry average. Our success is a direct result of the distributors and suppliers that communicate, plan, and work together. NetPlus members that participate actively in our sales planning, trainings and the Annual Meeting achieve even greater results.

What kind of suppliers belong to NetPlus?

NetPlus has over 180 manufacturers, wholesalers, and business service suppliers representing nearly 600 well-known brands.

Are there any fees for distributors to join NetPlus?

Distributors pay a one-time $2,500 membership fee to join the group, and there are no annual dues.

What is the criteria to become a member?

Prospective members need to align with our suppliers and industries served. NetPlus distributors primarily serve the industrial MROP, construction supplies, and safety channels, however many of our distributors have an additional business focus or specialty in abrasives, cutting tools, fasteners, electrical, and plumbing. All new members need to be willing to work with our preferred suppliers to grow and participate in NetPlus events and programs. To find out if you are the right fit for NetPlus, fill out our complimentary consultation request form.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

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

What competitive edge does the NetPlus membership provide distributors?

NetPlus members receive better pricing, freight levels, payment terms, co-op advertising, opening order size, easy access to brands and suppliers you may not already be doing business with, rebates, networking and more.

When I join NetPlus, what restrictions are placed on my business?

None, our mission is to help you succeed. Our most successful members are interested in growing and leveraging the NetPlus programs that work for their business. We encourage engagement, but you chose what works for you and your business.

How does the rebate program work?

NetPlus preferred suppliers are notified by our office when your membership is active, and you immediately have access to supplier programs and advantages. Each preferred supplier has its own program, and you can review details and your purchase reports in the NetPlus Member Portal. Your accumulated rebates from all suppliers are paid in one disbursement annually.

How does the NetPlus program work?

NetPlus does not participate in buying group invoicing. This means that you still conduct business with your suppliers as you always have and use the same local supplier representation. Becoming a member can lower your costs and it will not affect any special pricing you have in place.

What does a NetPlus distributor member look like?

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.

Cheryll Hoffman-Coniglio & Christian Coniglio

We initially joined NetPlus Alliance because their robust rebate program guaranteed us an immediate ROI. However, we quickly realized the benefits of membership went far beyond the rebate: from ongoing product training and education to maximizing our relationships and buying power with suppliers. What truly stands out to us is the dedication of the NetPlus Alliance team to help the members of the group succeed.

J Supply has been a member since 2014. Our most profitable lines have come through building relationships with NetPlus Alliance suppliers and expanding on those relationships year after year at the Annual Meeting. I was hesitant on the initial investment, but once we started receiving our annual rebate, which has grown substantially each year, our NetPlus membership has been one of our most profitable investments.

Thinking back to when we joined NetPlus Alliance, there was a real debate internally if it was going to be worth it. Almost immediately we saw a payoff. We experienced a very welcoming response, and connected with several new vendors. At the Annual Meeting we were able to connect with several of our existing vendors and build a plan for rapidly growing our partnership over the next few months. Within the first year alone, we saw an increase in our business and profitability that would not have been possible without NetPlus. To top it off, we received a rebate check.

I have found NetPlus to be a great partner. There are many benefits to joining NetPlus Alliance such as access to lines that I may not have qualified for, better pricing, rebates, training, peer discussions, and more. I believe NetPlus cares about their members more than some of the other bigger groups. Vendors are recognizing it as well, as new ones are joining all the time. I would recommend them to anyone considering a buying group.
