PharmaPlace has been setup to bring together pharmacy OTC buyers and independent suppliers. Normally a buyer must go to these suppliers individually to setup an account and order. At PharmaPlace we have brought the suppliers to one place to allow pharmacies to improve their retail OTC offering.
Yes! The site was built for the pharmacy owner and by a pharmacy owner! We have decided to create a FREE platform to help pharmacies adapt with the reduced NHS funding. PharmaPlace has no charge to pharmacies, nor adds any margin to the products. We take a small fee from the suppliers, and they have agreed to give their best trade pricing to those on PharmaPlace.
On PharmaPlace you can pay with any card - using a credit card avoids paying upfront and you can get more credit days than direct from a supplier! With a credit card you get up to 55 days credit and also you benefit from the Airmiles and cash back rewards of using the card.
As this is a supplier-led system, all your orders come direct from the supplier. There is no unofficial stock, or old stock sitting in a third party warehouse. On the checkout page we also have an opportunity to request samples, testers or a rep visit if you require anything extra. This request is passed directly to the supplier. Remember, suppliers offer us samples, testers, PoS and Reps to help educate our staff and do in-store demos – make use of it! Don’t ask don’t get.
There is no cost to the Pharmacy to use the platform.
