Has anyone joined their vendor program?

I am being offered a  $49/month preferred vendor for a pretty busy store.  Was hoping to find someone who has tried it...

AThe only real advice we can give you here is go try it for yourself for a few months, and keep meticulous records of all your orders.

If you are noticing a significant increase in your orders per month, then you can safely assume it would be worth it. Only you know your profit margin and your particular pricing so you need to figure out if that $49 that is going to dissappear each month is really going to translate in to more net profit for you.

Generally though paying for a "preferred vender" status is kind of shady in my opinion.

I want to be referred because of my skill by other vendors I trust. Not because some national bridal chain decided they want my money.

Maybe read this first.   There are links to other threads in this thread as well.
