What is group buying power?

When we sit down with a supplier, we are bringing 15,000 businesses to the table with us. That’s a lot of volume and the reason why the supplier is keen to give us favourable terms for our network. When you join n3, you become part of that group and reap the benefits. You still have the same direct relationship with your supplier, they just give you better prices.

Explore the benefits of n3:

When you join n3, you’re joining a buying group with over 15,000 other Kiwi businesses. That's a lot of negotiating strength. We call it business buying power – you can call it getting more for less.

We’ve sourced the best suppliers New Zealand has to offer, across just about everything you need to run your business. We have contracts with a wide range of suppliers nationwide.

To join the n3 network, suppliers must go through a rigorous tender, negotiation and review process with our procurement experts. We’ve already done the hard yards so you don’t have to.

“n3 has enabled us to get really good rates within a very competitive market. We've had a longstanding history of 20 years with n3 - right back to the days of the Government Stores Board.”
