What are the VAT repercussions? Who will pay the VAT and who issues the VAT invoice? I assume it will be Glenway so the customer willl see this as soon as they request a VAT invoice for their records.

 

Furthermore, if Glenway continue to insist that they have not entered the retail market then I'd believe this if they told Google not to index their site - welovetrophies.com. This is very easily done and consequently they would not be directly competing against other retail sites in the google rankings.

I've not had a credit to my account as yet, but I'm thinking the same.

A little unsure because of all the negativity and thinking maybe I'm missing the point, but free money for doing nothing!!!!!

 

HELL YEAH.... I'M IN!!

No but I did speak with Trend, they seem to be very good.

 

I firstly want to state I have no gripe with Glenway we have used them for 15 years and I honestly think their system will work for some.

 

In my experience Glenway do sell direct to clubs, our local rugby club bring in boxes of trophies ordered direct from Glenway and we engrave them. This has happened for the last 2 or 3 seasons

 

We have a LS100EX Laser engraver, an IS400 volume and a member of staff who does all the engraving.

So it doesn't make any sense to have that investment sitting there and for Glenway to do the order and to send me credit on my account. I want a strictly wholesale only supplier with no website page on the front of the catalogue.

 

I think this will be very popular with small one man shops with little or no investment in the machinery and staff and

I wish Glenway all the best with this change in direction, but for us it will be Trend for the foreseeable future

Well here it is.  a direct to consumer website.  Any guesses?

www.trophiesnextday.com

You are probably right, the address it is running from is a postal box address (and phone number).

That seems like a strange decision to make after everything that has been said....if it true!

Definitely Glenway, after having a snoop around at the source code of the trophiesnextday.com homepage, found a code snippit towards end of the page.

Enough said.....

The site on there is a microsite of the main 'welovetrophies' website, so the source code will be practically the same and will relate all to the main welovetrophies site. All the microsites will be hosted on the same server as the main website.

What I'm guessing is that Glenway have the facility to allow customers to have their own branded website on the same platform, where the customer will be able to change slideshow banners, website colours, logos and contact details.

I'm guessing that the product prices, images and descriptions are all set by Glenway, and when they update in on their main website, it will automatically update it to the same as their site, so that all their customers who use their microsite have the same prices etc.

The question that you should be asking is if any random person from the street can contact them and have their own microsite set up to start selling trophies, or is it only existing customers that can have it set up.

I spoke with Glen from Glenway this afternoon and this site is one that they have done for a customer that has asked them, they also have talked to a pal of mine about this very thing his name etc and linked to them for the orders - he gets 40% (I THINK) not the same as what were getting but the whole site is dedicated to him thus the increase on commission he has to pay something for it but nothing for nothing.

I will be phoning tomorrow for the figures - so nothing as first thought.

Don't know why they didn't do this from the start, it's a much better idea and gives the client a visible presence and ability to market the site. I do exactly this (free website and we do the white label fulfillment) with my print & embroidery business...it works well.
