Building Supplies

Embrace customer opportunities online and increase direct-to-site business via dropship

Offer increased product choice across more categories without disruption to legacy systems

The building sector has seen unprecedented growth in online sales over the past few years. Customers are now used to a new way of purchasing. The market needs to respond and adapt to meet those new expectations.

Virtualstock allows traditional building merchants to embrace these changes. Putting you at the forefront of online sales and providing the ideal customer experience. Logistical and operational considerations are different to other industries which is why our platform is both robust and scalable and puts you in full control.

We’re already working with some of the UK's largest builders merchants, nationals and DIY retailers, helping them to transition online, and allowing them to offer customers both an extended range of products and a far superior customer experience.

Scale up your product offering with ecommerce marketplace and dropshipping solutions. Retain control without the need for more warehouse space. Orders are fulfilled by the supplier while you still have complete control over the ‘virtual stock’. Giving you the opportunity to increase sales profitability without taking additional risk.

The feature rich Virtualstock platform sits between you and your suppliers, with full visibility of stock availability and order status, delivery status tracking, supplier communications and compliance reporting. Providing customers with the online experience they have come to expect.
