As An Aftermarket Automotive Parts Buyer, Are You Tired Of Feeling Handcuffed Having To Jump Through Hoops Just To Place An Order?

No one likes to have to call multiple times to check stock, see if an order shipped, or wait days for an order confirmation. Even when you finally do get your answer, too often an order get messed up, customer support is spotty and takes too long, and you just aren't as self-sufficient as you'd like to be.

You like the manufacturers you buy from and you like the fact they don't sell to just anyone—you've earned their trust.

And some manufacturers are better than others with order processing, but there's always that ONE that seems to have trouble.

There's so much time wasted on the back-and-forth emails, phone calls, and just waiting to get answers to the most basic questions, like:

  • How much inventory is available?
  • How much is shipping?
  • What's the lead time?

Or even:

  • How many units did I order last time?
  • What are the part numbers?
  • Is there YMM/Application Data?
  • Can I get product images, descriptions, and brand logos?
  • Are there MSDS available?

You're probably often thinking "It's , shouldn't I be able to go to a website, view a product, get the answers, and click buy?"

And if there is a problem with your order, it should be simple to get in touch with the seller and you should have confidence you'll get a fast response AND a fast resolution.

Now you can:

MidwayPlus is committed to your private relationships with your brands and will not get involved unless invited.

How much is MidwayPlus for a reseller?

MidwayPlus is a free solution for qualified and verified Resellers.

How do we join as a reseller?

See the How It Works section above. It is important that this platform is for wholesale transactions within the automotive industry by businesses with a stake in the industry, so we will ask some qualifying questions and verify the answers.

How long does it take to be approved as a reseller?

It typically takes 1-2 business days to be approved as a Reseller. Once invited and approved, it takes minutes to set up your account.

Are we buying from MidwayPlus or the Brand?

MidwayPlus facilitates easy shopping and order management for you and easy product listings and order management for the Brands. Brands are the sellers, your orders go directly to them. The pricing, inventory, negotiated settings, and line-item records of orders are between you and them while the transactions are labeled as MidwayPlus.

Can we see other resellers' information?

No. MidwayPlus will never share Reseller information with other Resellers. Brands will be able to see the profile a Reseller creates for the site and certain attributes of a Reseller, such as type of business, specialty, etc. This benefits the Reseller by allowing Brands to target Resellers with special programs.

Does MidwayPlus share purchase history, our, or our customer information with anyone?

No. MidwayPlus uses industry leading payment processing companies to store credit card information securely and to process payments.

What are the payment options?

Each brand will offer various forms of payment. Our platform allows credit card, Net Terms, and ACH payments.

Does a payment go directly to the Brand?

Yes. Your payment is remitted directly to the Brand. The Brand's remittance advice shows your name, as it appears on your credit card.

Can we purchase from any brand that is using MidwayPlus?

Each Brand controls which Resellers they sell to. Because MidwayPlus verifies that Resellers are legitimate businesses with a stake in the automotive aftermarket industry, some Brands will choose to make their products for sale to all Resellers on the platform. However, there are many Brands on the platform that have not yet authorized you to buy from them. MidwayPlus makes it easy for you to request to buy from a Brand.

Are we direct with every brand available on MidwayPlus?

No. Only the brands that you have relationships with and have set you up as a buyer are available to you. However, it's never been easier to meet, learn, and talk with new brands, but it's up to them to choose if they will sell to you.

Can we purchase multiple Brands on one order (PO)?

Yes! We will break a multi-Brand PO into sections and only send each Brand a PO for their products, but you will be able to place one PO and manage it as one order within your MidwayPlus Order Management System.

Can you integrate into my systems to make ordering easier for me?

We offer a free API to connect through, or if you need, an EDI. We will set this up with the brands you're buying from and it may incur a set up fee.

Do we need to upload our tax documents with each brand?

No. Upload them once and they will work for any and all brands on the platform.

Why would we pay tax on an order if its B2B?

USA States and territories now have rules that require proof of pre-purchase tax exemptions. They require the buyer to prove they are state sales tax exempt for the transaction to legally remove the tax. Otherwise, the seller of any good must charge State sales tax and remit to the State(s).

Do you remind us when a certificate is going to expire?

We do! We recognize that managing tax exemptions in multiple states is an administrative chore and will do everything we can to help you keep those certificates up to date in our system.

Can we get a Brand's data/inventory feed?

Yes! You can receive a data feed from all Brands that have approved you for one. API access is made available according to similar criteria.
