Putting the squeeze on business expenses is a classic way to protect profitability and keep your shareholders happy. But all that trimming of small change is time-consuming and frustrating. What if there was a holistic way to trim back everything, all at once?

The process of looking at every individual cost centre and coming up with business cost saving ideas is tedious, to say the least. That’s why more than 16,000 Kiwi businesses have joined n3, New Zealand’s largest business buying group.

Joining a business buying group is a decision that’s becoming increasingly popular for a couple of reasons:

  • It helps you get the best business discounts on all the things you need – savings apply to everything from stationery supplies and toilet paper to office furniture and IT hardware. See all the n3 Suppliers.
  • It simplifies procurement procedures – your people will always know which suppliers to use for the best discounts.

Two types of buying group Membership – On Account or Trade Card

To make using n3 easy, we offer a choice of Membership types. ‘On Account’ lets you procure from our Suppliers and receive a monthly invoice; ‘Trade Card’ lets you pay for discounted purchases on the spot. You can talk to us about which of these is best for your business.

So how does it work?

  • You can purchase On-Account from as many of our Suppliers as you like – the more you use the more you save.
  • If you currently purchase from one of our Suppliers, we can connect your existing account to the n3 price-file so you can access your exclusive n3 discount.
  • You keep the direct Supplier relationship; purchasing as you normally would – simply at lower prices.
  • You know you can trust our Suppliers. To make the n3 network, Suppliers must go through a rigorous tender, negotiation and review process with our procurement experts. They have already done the hard yards so you don't have to.
  • Full access to our self-service website. Log in to see your monthly n3 spending and savings report, open and link accounts, send queries and more.

Joining is easy, payback is fast and expense cutting is instant

Membership of n3 starts at $330 a year and history shows that most Members save this much or more within two - three months of joining. From then on, your n3 Membership is like money in the bank.

To make sure switching to n3 is easy, you’ll have a dedicated n3 Account Manager to take care of the on-boarding process and show you exactly what your n3 Membership offers.
