Depending on the size of your business and your business requirements, the Account Executive will work with you to set up your Business Direct site that will best meet your needs.
What is the difference between a Requisition, Request For Quote, and Quote?
These are really all just different stages of purchasing on the Business Direct (BD) site. A Requisition is a shopping cart that a user on the BD site creates that they want or need to assign to another user on the BD site for approval before purchase. Once the approving user receives the Requisition they can turn it into an order. A Request For Quote (RFQ) is a shopping cart you have submitted to your Account Executive for suggested additional items and upgrades, better pricing on large orders, and price matching with competitors. Once the Account Executive has replied to you, you can then reject it or checkout on the site. A Quote is a shopping cart that your Account Executive has created with suggested items for purchase, special limited time pricing, or items you requested via the phone. Once you receive the Quote you can either reject it or checkout directly on the Business Direct site using a line of credit (if you have one set up with us) or a credit card.
What are my payment options on the Business Direct site?
On the Business Direct site you can use a credit card or you can set up a credit limit and terms with PCM. Please contact your Account Executive for more details on setting up an Open Account on your Business Direct Site.
