Vendor2Member Announces Launch Date to Ace Hardware and Do It Best Corp. Retailers

Vendor2Member, the hardware industry’s largest directory of co-op specific dropship products, announced its dropship directory will be made available to Ace Hardware and Do It Best Corp. retailers on Feb. 17, 2014.

Co-founder Alex Smith, a former Ace Hardware general manager, said he realized the need for a third-party dropship solution while working as a buyer for Do It Best Corp.

“I received countless calls from retailers on a daily basis trying to track down product information for their customers,” he said. “The problem was unacceptable but the solution is simple.”

Through the Vendor2Member platform, vendors have the ability to list their entire dropshippable product offering and make it searchable to hardware retailers.

“We take product data and co-op specific vendor information that was once extremely difficult, if not impossible, for a retailer to track down, and developed an all-inclusive centralized database that is not only easy and intuitive but free for the retailer to use,” Vendor2Member co-founder Reed Smith said.

Vendor2Member provides access and exposure to specialized vendors as well.
