With over 70% of consumers doing their pre-buy shopping research online, durable goods manufacturers might think selling direct to consumers online is an effective way to increase profits.

Although the manufacturer is in the best position to arm consumers with reasons to buy its brand, and to help them select the product that will best meet their needs, most manufacturers don’t have the infrastructure to deliver products to a consumer’s home. The return on such an investment may never be realized.

Partnering with a white-glove-delivery supplier might solve that problem but still manufacturers can’t risk alienating profitable dealer channels by competing with them for the sale.

Instead, with collaborative e-commerce, manufacturers can sell directly to consumers online while letting the dealer fulfil the order.
