Manufacturer Guidelines

This page is dedicated to providing New and Existing Manufacturers directions for product submission. It is important to note that these procedures are being implemented in an effort to provide you and our customers with the highest level of support and communication. Products without proper descriptions leave the client unsure as to what he should expect. Products without pictures mean the client is less likely to invest in an item. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at anytime. ~ Frye

We are working on these quidelines with other distributors in an effort to have a consistant recommendation for what we would like to see. Contact information for those distributors will be listed at the bottom of this page.

These instructions are broken into two sections. The first will be for existing manufacturer who wish to submit new products and the second is for new manufacturers who would like us to commit to stocking their products.

General Guidelines

Manufacturer Website: Each Manufacturer should have a website where retailers and end users can go to find out more information about your products.

Distributor Contact Page: Manufacturers should have a page on their website that lists all of the Distributors that carry your products and who at your company to contact if a distributor would like to carry your products. Partners who do not wish to promote our partnership will not be fully stocked or have their current stock reduced.

Retail Locator: Manufacturers should have a page on their website that lists all of the Retailers that carry your products, a link to the Distributor Page for the Distributors that carry your products and who at your company to contact if a retailer would like to order your products directly from you (if you sell direct to them).

Facebook Page: Do you have a Facebook Page highlighting your products? Do you update it regularly?

Twitter: Do you have a Twitter account for your company? Do you interact with people who ask you questions or do you just push out promotional information?

 

Section 1: Existing Manufacturers

Privateer Press provides an nice example of how a solicitation should look. An ideal solicitation includes two parts, a spreadsheet with the product information summarized for all the releases and a second file with long descriptions for each product that is coming. The images for the products are provided as attachments or via a download link at a single FTP location.

A PDF sell-sheet is nice to provide for us to supply to our customers, but is difficult for a distributor to pull the necessary information for our systems from these documents. The graphics do not translate well to our systems and we often have to re-type the SKU, Product Name and Pricing, leading to many more chances for error. When the information is provided in a spreadsheet, the transfer of the information to our systems can be achieved much more efficiently - meaning less errors and that your parts get into our systems faster.

Examples 1 and 2

 

Section 2: New Manufacturers

New Manufacturers will need to create a file that contains all the below data. This will allow us to set your account and products up correctly.

SKU Guidelines: If you have not assigned your SKUs as of yet, we recommend three letters representing your company followed by numbers, representing the products.

Image Files: These are most easily placed in a single location such as a Dropbox, or put into a zip file. We will not be going to your website to hunt for each individual image. These should be named with the SKU in the image name so that we make sure to get the correct image with each product.

Descriptions: Each product should have a description that details what comes with the product. Details should include how many miniatures are in the set and if it comes in a box or blister along with any flavor text.
