Exclusive Rebate Programs
Fullarton uses a data-driven approach to rebate program negotiations with Group Supplier partners to receive better rebates than Distributors could on their own. Our rebate model allows even the smallest of Members to push the rebates ever higher, putting more money in the pockets of everyone.
Rebates Above Your Best Price
Distributors continue to negotiate their own best price and delivery while still participating in the Group rebate programs.
Electronic Payments and Invoicing Platform
Fast, efficient and PROTECTED!
Fullarton utilizes a central invoice and payment model using electronic invoicing (EDI) and payments (EFT). Electronic payments have moved to the forefront as businesses shift to more efficient, faster, and protected payment methods.
Rebate Tracking & Management
Using world-leading buying group software to track, calculate, collect and distribute rebates ensures Fullarton Members get all rebates earned and ensures they get those rebate payments faster and more efficiently than most other groups. Members trust the results.
Exclusive Product Promotions
Fullarton Supplier Partners may offer product promotions, flash sales, booking programs, and other incentives that are only available to Fullarton Members. These incentives are offered above and beyond the negotiated rebate program with each Supplier.
No Long-Term Commitment
We understand that you need to do what is right for your business so, if you decide, for whatever reason, Fullarton is not a fit for your business, you may leave at any time.
Networking & Non-Financial Benefits
Relationships & Networking
Being ahead of the pack with insight into what the brightest and best entrepreneurs in the promotional products sector are doing gives you a competitive advantage. Your Fullarton network is your “go to” source for all the business issues you face. If you want to get better at any game, you need to play with the best. Fullarton’s criteria for membership brings the best together and when we meet, it is the owners and leaders of our member companies that attend.
Support on Both Sides of the Fence
The Fullarton staff is working for both its Members and Suppliers. We visit our Members’ factories and speak to our Suppliers regularly. Our General Manager is a liaison between all Members and Suppliers to make warm introductions and help solve problems where traditional member to Supplier communication cannot. Every effort we take is focused on your success.
Nothing is more looked forward to by our Members than the Annual Meeting. Learning, sharing, and making friends. Being an independent promotional product distributor is a lonely job – nobody else in your community knows what issues you are facing on a day to day basis. At Fullarton, all of our Members are just like you – similar issues – similar challenges.
Suppliers Truly Become Partners
When great companies live by the “better together” model the result is growth and increased profits. Our Suppliers, selected by our Members for their products, service, and programs, demonstrate daily are true partners in our Member’s success. Partners support with training, innovative products and support that deliver much more than a low price. Fullarton provides the opportunity for its Members to deepen their ties to their existing Suppliers and opportunities to establish new Supplier partners.
What if my suppliers aren’t involved in Fullarton?
Every Member has the opportunity to sponsor a new Supplier and bring them forward to the Group for evaluation. The Group will then approach the potential Partner on your behalf and will ask them to prepare a program to be presented to the Supplier Selection Committee.
How are the rebates paid to Members?
Members will receive rebates on their purchases made with our Supplier Partners. On an annual basis, and when the funds have been collected from the Supplier Partners, Fullarton will pay out rebates directly to Members via EFT/ACH into their accounts.
What are the criteria for a Membership?
Membership is for promotional product distributors in Canada and the United States. Membership is by invitation only with the over-riding criteria that the distributor runs their business ethically and see the value in working with others to help grow their business and the push to retain independence in the industry.
