 HOW IT WORKS

 
  Contract:

MCM holds a master contract with Major Canadian Distributors in Canada. Your products will be set up at the Distributor under that master contract. Your products will show up on Distributorís line card and EDI feeds, and give you all the sales exposure as you would receive if you had a direct relationship with the Distributor. We will provide more details during our preliminary discussions. Here is an overview:

MCM will buy your products on behalf of the Distributor based on their PO and ship to the Distributorís warehouse of choice.

MCM uses a monthly fee model to the Manufacturer so there are no hidden layers of pricing and we manage all of the business aspects with the Major Canadian Distributor.


  Costs:

MCM’s fees are calculated based on just a few factors: number of skus you like to get listed at Distributor, monthly sku changes, and any additional services required.

Start up Costs: Start up costs vary as per your needs and your assortment of skus. We will provide all necessary information up front for you to make an educated decision.
