Do I have a local representative that will visit me?
We don’t have a field sales team but we do make every effort to get to know our customers and find out what is important to them. For this reason, our customer service representatives travel the country to get to know our customers and will make monthly telephone contact or as often as you dictate. We know how busy our customers are so we try to provide all the required information and leave the decision making to them.
Some customers do like us to call them to help with monthly ordering and this is something we are happy to do. Just mention it to your account manager.
Do you attend any trade shows?
Yes, we exhibit at Exclusively Housewares and Top Drawer London and will be organising regional road shows in 2017 so customers and potential customers can see everything we offer.
How do I keep up to date on the latest products and promotional offers?
When you register with nixxee you can opt to be added to our newsletter. We send out a newsletter every two weeks and this is often the only source of promotional offers so we strongly recommend that you sign up for this resource.
What if the offers aren’t relevant for me?
We try our best to tailor email and general marketing content based on your order history and the nature of your business however you can unsubscribe at any time.
How does the brand_shift work?
On some of our products you will see the brand_shift sash. This means these brands ship direct from the brand themselves directly to you, this is also known as the drop ship model. As different brands are in different areas the carriage charges do vary so please make sure you read these before placing an order. Any brand_shift product will not be included in a UK carriage paid order and we strongly suggest that you place a separate order for any brand_shift brand. These brands and products are clearly marked through the ordering process however you will be contacted by your account manager if the order doesn’t meet the criteria. They will then guide you through the process.
For further information on this procedure please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a detail criteria for each brand.
Why use brand_shift?
The great thing with this process is that you only have one invoicing point. You may order UK stock and then from a brand_shift partner and you will make payment directly to nixxee for all. This gives you access to many brands without the hassle of dealing with many supply accounts.
Do you ship internationally?
We do offer some of our brands to international retail customers. If your country is shown in the country field during the registration process, we are already dispatching to your region. Once registered we will contact you and inform you of the brands we can deliver and associated dispatch charges if they apply.
If your country isn’t shown, please email email@example.com or call us on +44 (0)1202 619 500 as we may be able to add you to the dispatch list.
Can you ship to a residential address?
Unfortunately, we cannot ship to a residential address through our standard carrier. If you require a delivery to a residential address, we will try and facilitate this for you however you may need to pass some further security checks.
How long will my order take?
If you are a UK mainland customer ordering UK stocked lines, we deliver the next working day for all orders placed by 3pm. For international customers, this will vary depending on location but you can expect all deliveries within 7 working days. The delivery time for brand_shift products depends on the capabilities of the dispatching brand but we target all brands to deliver to our customers within 7 working days.
All our UK and international orders dispatch through Fedex and most our brand_shift partners also use Fedex. If they don’t use our Fedex service, we will inform you of the courier before your order dispatches.
Is my order tracked?
Yes, all orders are tracked and you will receive an email with tracking details as soon as your order dispatches. If you don’t receive this email, please contact us immediately and we will provide tracking details. Please wait until the morning after you place your order to check tracking information as the system will update in the early hours of the morning.
What trading terms are available?
All initial orders are on a proforma or cash payment basis however we can then offer credit terms if approved by our credit insurers. You can download your credit application form here. For further information please speak to your account manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We require an electronically signed copy of our trading terms before a line of credit can be offered.
How do I know what my available credit is?
On our website, you can see you credit availability in the eWallet balance. This updated automatically and if you don’t have sufficient funds for the order the balance can be paid by debit or credit card. Alternatively, you can pay down your outstanding balance to free up your full credit limit. We will still process your order if you have insufficient funds on your credit account and one of the team will make contact to arrange for payment to release the goods.
I’m an international customer, do you offer credit terms?
At present all international customers are on proforma terms or a credit/debit card payment can be made via the website. We are working with our credit insurers to offer terms for overseas customers so please contact us if you would like to discuss further.
