What does Mr. Checkout charge?
Mr. Checkout does not have an ongoing charge. The setup fee that we require covers the setup of a custom landing page, email marketing to the group and personal publicist that will work with you on your press release.
How much product do I need to supply? Am I paid for the product up front or only as it is sold?
Each distributor works independently and set their own rules. However, our wagon jobbers typically pay for each order via credit card up front before the order is shipped.
How much product, does each grocer/c-store take?
Each store typically displays one point of sale display and keeps one in the back, however our distributors visit the stores weekly or every 2 weeks to re-stock the shelves and make sure that any static cling stickers or posters are still being displayed.
After I pay the setup fee, what should I would expect?
After your payment has been processed, we will send you a welcome letter with the access to the interactive distributor directory, member’s education portal as well as introduce your personal publicist who will be handling your press release. We will also be sending you a certificate of membership as well as The Ultimate Distributor Guide to help you get started presenting your product to independent distributors and wagon jobbers.
Within the first few weeks we will send an eBlast out to all of our distributors and retail partners featuring the new products with a link back to your custom landing page in our what’s hot directory. You will also be receiving the results of your press release with the news outlets that have featured you on their website.
Our member’s education portal will explain how to reach out and contact our independent distributors as well as our larger distributors so you can be 100% confident that you can answer any questions that they may have.
How do the transactions between me and the distributors take place?
Most of our distributors develop a friendly relationship with their suppliers. As a supplier you can expect a distributor to send in an order form you provide via fax or email, however most of our distributors tend to prefer using the phone to place an order.
How would you describe Mr Checkout’s role in the relationship?
As a network of distributors, Mr. Checkout’s role is to promote your product and brand to our independent distributors. They know that finding a product on our What’s Hot list means that we have seen, discussed and believe that product to be marketable in their independent stores. The individual relationship building is on you, the supplier, however we make sure that they have exposure to your product before you call.
What happens to my product if distributors don’t buy it?
Unfortunately, sometimes a product doesn’t resonate with the distributors. This can be for a variety of reasons from they already carry a competitors to a dislike for the salesperson personally.
