Six steps of the seller journey
1 Create a listing
To start selling on SteelBuy, navigate to the ‘Create a listing’ tab on the side bar menu. Complete the specific product details you wish to sell, for example, grade, coating, thickness and how long you want to list the product – from 4 hours to 7 days. You can also upload Test Certificates and any other images to support your listing to help sell it. Click ‘Submit for Approval’.
All listings are checked by our customer service team and you will receive an email notification that the listing is approved. If there is an issue, this is usually an empty field or incorrect address, and is easy to amend and resubmit. The entire process is usually done in minutes.
3 Manage listings
Once you have created your listing(s) you have the ability to edit certain elements. The length of time you want the listing visible to buyers can be extended or reduced, and additional product information can be added. The one element you can’t edit is the price per tonne. This is fixed until the listing period expires.
4 Prep for delivery
When your material has been purchased, all the details are confirmed through the platform and email. The paperwork is generated for you – delivery note, collection credentials and the only task you need to complete is load the material on the lorry when it arrives for collection.
As the material is delivered to the buyer and confirms receipt of goods, you issue an invoice to SteelBuy. Again, this is all managed via the platform.
Under the SteelBuy Promise, we will pay you to the agreed terms and remove the risk of bad debt. Further enhancing the benefit of SteelBuy.
We believe our digital platform is a great way to take the hassle out of selling and ensure you get the most out of your business. With its broad range of features and services, it’s no wonder it’s becoming one of the fastest growing digital platforms in the UK. Give SteelBuy a try, register for an account here.
