How to access exclusive n3 pricing

Open new accounts

Opening an account with a supplier couldn't be easier. Simply log in to our website and click ‘Open Account’ on the supplier profile page. Most suppliers have forms online with your details pre-populated, so all you need to do is print, sign and return the form. Your new account will be connected to the n3 price file.

Link an existing account

Look through our list of leading New Zealand suppliers. If you already purchase from any, you could link your existing account to n3 pricing – just tell us your current account number and we’ll do the rest. There is no change to your relationship with the suppliers, and you continue purchasing as usual – just at better prices.

Trade Card

We also offer our members Trade Cards to use at participating suppliers for business purchases. 

  • Instant in-store discounts
  • No need to open an account
  • Often used in-conjunction with P-cards

We keep great company
