The Scale of AD Meets the Power of eCommerce.

eCommerce

eCommerce is the fastest growing sales channel in today’s professional market, and AD has invested in the tools and resources to provide our members with access to rich product content, fully integrated WebStore options, and the consultative support they need to make it happen.

AD eCommerce Solutions leverages AD’s scale and community to enable Members to achieve their eCommerce objectives and win in an evolving digital world. AD’s size and scale allows us to buy SKU production capacity rather than a pay-per-SKU model.

  • eCommerce is not only a large financial investment, but it demands a lot of time from your internal resources that some of us do not have. By tackling this project as a group, AD members, no matter their size, will have the opportunity to have an online presence.

  • AD eCommerce Solutions give our company the ability to move forward and remain relevant and competitive in the marketplace. Without the synergies of all the independents coming together and without the guidance and the foresight of AD knowing that this is a strategic need for all the independents, the independents would be at a very severe competitive disadvantage.

Our collaborative financial investment enables us to deliver millions of SKUs of attributed data, so that AD members can acquire for pennies per SKUs rather than dollars. What makes our model unique is the involvement of our members and supplier partners as we consumerize the millions of SKUs. They are involved every step of the way, from defining taxonomy to providing feedback and improvements on product content.
