Standard Delivery Charge Reduced Print E-mail

The standard deliver charge has been reduced from £5.99 to £5.75 (+ VAT) for UK deliveries to non-remote addresses. Priority delivery charges remain unchanged.

The reduction in the standard delivery charge follows a reduction in the amount couriers charge Wholesale Tool Warehouse as the company continues to grow. These savings have been passed on the Wholesale Tool Warehouse customers who can now enjoy the cheapest delivery charges for any online tool shop that charge a flat rate delivery charge (where the delivery charge does not increase as the order weight increases).

Minimum Order Quantity Removed Print E-mail

Minimum Order Quantities are a thing of the past at Wholesale Tool Warehouse. The online tool stockists have changed their business model and updated the order placement process so that customers can now order one or more products for most of the items they stock.

The website's target audience will remain resellers and retailers, so prices will remain very competitive and customers will have the option to buy in bulk to get the best prices. In the past customers could only buy in bulk as all products had minimum order quantities in place and the system would only allow orders for these quantities or more. This was good news for resellers who would buy in bulk, but not such good news if the resellers needed to order replacement items or wanted to order fewer products for any reason. It was also not ideal for other customers such as the general public or small businesses who make use of the online tool shop.

The work to update the ordering process will be done in two stages. Suring stage one (which is now complete) the enforced minimum order quantities were removed while the prices remain unchanged. During stage two (now also complete) a facility to order in bulk at a reduced rate was added.

Update: Work is now complete and this feature has been tested and is working.
