Can I post items I need to buy even if they aren't listed on your site?
Yes! Use our Request For Quotation (RFQ) system to list parts that you want to purchase. We'll automatically match your part number with all the suppliers who have it listed for sale. Pro and Enterprise members can then control to whom the RFQ goes. Subscribers, we'll be happy to work with you to source material you need using our extensive network.
But I am looking for hundreds of parts, it will take forever! Can you help?
Yes! Our RFQ system allows you to upload an entire spreadsheet of part numbers you are looking to buy. We go through each of your items and send a Request for Quotation on your behalf to all suppliers with matching parts. Before any RFQ is sent you can can choose to omit any suppliers you are not interested in doing business with (Pro/Enterprise only). Be careful how you proceed because suppliers can restrict buyers who waste their time.
I work in a different industry, can I list those items too?
Absolutely! Contact us first and we will be glad to set up a new industry for you.
I listed some parts, why didn't anyone contact me?
There are hundreds of thousands of parts in the Industry and so the chances of being contacted is directly proportional to how many items you have listed. Professional members can list tens of thousands of parts and generally enjoy more success than Basic members.
Can I list my parts on Partsbook AND my own website?
Yes! We offer an API for Professional Members and now have a private label solution so you can enjoy the power of Partsbook on your own domain. Contact us if you'd like to list your items on your own website.
I sent you an RFQ by e-mail, why didn't you respond!?
A. We built this amazing site so you can use it - leave e-mail in the dust. Do more in less time and get organized!
