Life is easier with Phyxter! We hope you’re having fun using our app and have saved some time and money. Below are 5 tips to help you use Phyxter optimally!
1. Tell your favorite suppliers you want them on it
I know it would be great if Phyxter went out and recruited every wholesaler on earth to create their own free wholesaler account, and we’re definitely going to try, but our small team of three could use your help…or you can wait to start saving money by easily getting competitive quotes from all of your suppliers…but we’d recommend that you shoot them an email or give them a call and ask them to join the Phyxter community. You can even cc our CEO on the email if you like, his email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use the notes app on your phone to keep a list of the tools, parts, and materials you need. This way, you won’t forget an important part, and won’t have to waste time typing everything up. Just copy-paste from your list, and you’re good to go!
If you like to jot down your list, that’s fine as well! You can just click a picture of the list and attach it to your quote request. Keep in mind that doing this makes the wholesalers' job more difficult though so we recommend keeping your list in the notes app.
4. Multiple Quotes
Be sure that you always get multiple quotes for all your tools and parts. You can filter the wholesaler list based by trade. Select the first few (they are the closest to you) and just send a single message to all of them! It’s that simple! Now you know who has what you need and how much they charge.
5. Closest location
Don’t select a wholesaler on the other side of the city to save $10. Keep in mind that driving additional distances costs you in terms of fuel and time! You should always consider the closest wholesaler and determine what your time is worth! An easy way to do that is to just look at your charge out rate. If you’re going to spend 30 minutes of your time to save ten bucks but you generally charge out at $80/hr then you’re potentially losing money. Buy the part, get the job you’re working on completed, and pick up another job that day….plus, you’ll probably end up selling more parts on that last job.
We hope this article can help you save even more time and money! Have fun 😊
