WEBMART- sustainable print management where everyone wins!

Latest FAQ:

How will I make money if I don't print it myself?

We benchmark the market and get the best price / quality price instantly and then give it to you. We also show you the price that a good print buyer in the market would get to show you what profit you can make via the PM² margin-o-meter and put them in an estimate to make it dead easy and FAST.

How can I trust that a supplier will adhere to the same quality standards as my company, without knowing who they are?

WEBMART takes the order off you and passes it on to the right printer. We make sure the quality and service are 100% acceptable - after all, that's all we do. Our current client satisfaction rating is 9.71 / 10 and we have grown to £37m t/o by doing just this, so you can rest easy.

How will you prevent suppliers from going to my customers direct?

Every printer who accepts an order will enter into a confidentiality agreement with your end client, so that will not be an issue.

So what's in it for WEBMART?

WEBMART is the most efficient print management company in the UK, so even offering this free service and the highest quality print management we only build into the prices you receive an average 8% for our PM service to you, so you know you win and we win together.

Is this site now only open to printers, whereas print buyers could use it before?

The price you get is significantly lower than the price an expert print-buyer would get, so that you, the printer, can maximise the profit when you re-sell it. The price at which you is entirely up to you, as you know your client best.

WEBMART works with a number of print management companies:this is a testament to our technology and the price advantage we can offer. We do not, however, work with companies that employ the practice of hidden rebates or high retro-rebates, as we believe they are wrong ethically.

With regards to the “guaranteed best price to the trade” and the “market price”, is that, in other words, the lowest price returned and the average price returned from any quote?

Yes. If anyone can beat our Trade Price Guarantee, then we will be delighted, as they have identified an area for us to focus on and a specialist supplier we need to be getting on Dynamic Pricing, so that every printer can benefit from his/her specialism/value. In this way, low prices benefit all printers - by identifying greater profit opportunities, not less.

The 8% average print management fee – is that WEBMART's slice of the pie? If not, then where does WEBMART make its money from?

Also, where does the printer make its money – does it decide its own mark-up when returning a price to its client (i.e. supplier quotes X, WEBMART adds 8% for itself to generate a new quote Y and the user then returns a quote of Y + its own mark-up to the client?)

WEBMART build 8% in to the price, on average, which provides our PM service to the printer. It is our fully inclusive price....no hidden charges.

On the money with the printer - WEBMART give them the market price as a guide. It is entirely up to them what they charge their customer. We are there to support the customer by being their PM back-office and it is the printer who retains the direct relationship with the client.

Where does the printer make its money – does it decide its own mark-up, when returning a price to its client?

WEBMART builds, on average, 8% into the price you get on the website; this provides our Print Management service to you. It is our fully inclusive price....no hidden charges. Even with this, our price will be highly competitive – we guarantee it!

WEBMART gives you the typical market price as a guide of what to sell it at. It is entirely up to you at what price you sell it to your customer. We are there to support you by being your PM back-office and it is you, the printer, who retains the direct relationship with your client.

What would you say to the argument that this is just shifting the current goalposts from Print Managers screwing Printers to Printers screwing Printers?

No, quite the converse. Every "unsustainably low price" is another PRINTER’S PM profit now - through the FreePrintManagement.com service. If anything, they would want to see more of it!

If it truly is an unsustainably low price that they quote, they will fill up with this work at this rate, then they will go bust, fast - so the problem is solved! If it is just that they have the best cost base/investment/equipment in the industry, allowing these great prices, then they win and the entire print industry benefits from it via the FreePrintManagement.com site.

How many buyers did you have registered using the old model (and how did they feel about losing the service)?

We had a thousand, and many were trade clients anyway, so there is no change for them. The rest are either clients already (who still have access) or potential clients. So it will be down to our sales team to convert them into being clients!
