How to find and buy New Replacement Cabinet Doors Cheap

One of the best ways to find a great deal on anything is to find the actual manufacturer and buy the product directly from him. The problem is that not many manufacturers want to sell direct to the end user, they want to sell in much higher volumes to retail stores.

They don’t want to increase their sales staff to handle the number of smaller orders that home owners would require.

Most manufacturers have not addressed the concept of marketing directly to the end user since the internet has exploded, but a few have.

Manufacturers that offer to sell direct to the consumer have realized that developing a successful webpage is not an increased sales cost. It’s actually a cost-reducing option. Salesmen are paid whether they are busy filling orders or drinking coffee, while a website costs much less. While it’s true that a complex website will cost tens, or hundreds of dollars to produce, the costs to maintain and operate are significantly lower than managing a large sales staff.

That’s why we are offering our Custom Cabinet Doors directly to consumers online.

The question of cost to the end user boils down to this…

Retail and Big-Box stores have large sales staffs and expensive retail stores to pay for.

The manufacturer is a factory with a website.

Who do you think has lower costs?

The retail store doesn’t buy direct from the factory, he buys from a distributor. The Distributor buys from the factory, adds his profit and sells the product to the Retail Store…who marks it up again then sells it to the end user.

Who do you think has lower costs?

Someday most manufacturers will start to offer their products online but you don’t have to wait until that someday.

You can order top-quality Replacement Cabinet Doors today from CabinetDoors.Com and pay just a little over half what you will pay at a retail or Big-Box store.

How to buy Top Quality Replacement Kitchen Cabinet Doors and save money

By Jim Hill August 22, 2014

The issue of saving money on any manufactured item is really very simple: The more middlemen that are involved in the process, the more the item gets marked-up.

The normal path any item takes to the final consumer is from the manufacturer to the Stocking Distributor, to a Wholesaler, to a Retail Store, and finally to the end user.

Each of these middlemen must increase the price by enough to cover his costs and add his profit.
Consider an average mark-up of 20% at the Stocking Distributor, another 20% at the Wholesaler, and 40%-50% at the Retail Store. This translates into roughly doubling the cost of the manufactured product.

If there was a way to remove or reduce the middleman mark-up the end user could save some serious money.

Well, there is a way to remove the costly middlemen from the market chain: the Internet.

To be honest, buying directly from the manufacturer from his website won’t cut the retail price in half. This is because some of the functions handled by Wholesalers and Retailers must now be handled by the manufacturer himself, and these functions create a cost to the manufacturer.
For instance, the manufacturer usually ships to very few wholesalers but in very large volumes. When selling from a website the manufacturer must now sell his product in much lower volumes and to many more users. Both lower volume per shipment and more total shipments have an added cost to the manufacturer, and he must pass this added cost on.

There are a few other cost adders that the manufacturer must absorb, like adding additional customer service and order processing employees.
These added expenses add cost but nowhere near the 100% mark-up the long supply chain added.

The bottom line is that retail stores hate the internet and go to great expense to keep their retail customers from finding which manufacturers sell to the public through websites.
Why would Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc. spend many millions each month on Google Advertising to get their websites listed at the very top of Google’s search result pages? The answer is that they don’t want you to look at the organic (non-paid) search results where the actual manufacturers webpages will offer the same products at 20% to 40% less.

CabinetDoors.Com is one of those manufacturers. We sell our extensive lines of Kitchen Cabinet Doors direct to the end user at about 30% less than the same door available from the big-box stores. Not only cheaper but with a 10-day delivery as apposed to 4-to-6-weeks delivery through the retail supply chain.

Another interesting aspect of buying direst is that the product you receive from the manufacturer is not only less expensive and delivered much faster, it’s usually the same product you would receive from the big-box retailer. Where do you think the big retailers get their products? They certainly don’t make them; They don’t make anything…They are just another middleman in the retail chain moving the manufacturers products to the end user.

So if you are ready for new or replacement kitchen cabinet doors, why not save some money and speed-up the process by looking at CabinetDoors.Com.

The Internet is here to stay and it is presenting end users with a choice they have never had before; a choice of keeping with the old method of supporting the supply chain, or by-passing the chain and moving into the future of manufactured goods marketing.

How to locate sources for Replacement Kitchen Cabinet Doors

July 2014 by Jim Hill

There are two distribution channels for most manufactured products. One is directly from the manufacturer. The other is from the manufacturer, through a distributor, and finally, through a retailer, before reaching the consumer.

Distributors and stocking representatives are simply middlemen who buy directly from manufacturers. They must increase the price to cover their expenses and obtain a desired profit. They then sell to retailers. The retail store again adds his expenses and profit to arrive at the price the retail stores charges the consumer for the item.

In the pre-internet times the middleman assumed the marketing function for the manufacturer. This marketing and sales function being handled by the assorted middlemen allowed the manufacturer to concentrate on engineering and production issues while avoiding the expense of maintaining marketing and sales staffs. But today, the internet has dramatically reduced the costs of marketing and sales to the point where many manufacturers are reconsidering their sales strategies. Every year more manufacturers offer their products to the public through websites, which not only reduces marketing and sales expenses, but also passes significant savings to the consumer.

Before the internet, the only choice a home-owner had to buy cabinet doors was from a retailer like Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards. These big-box stores didn’t actually make the doors they sell, they contracted with manufacturers and middlemen to supply the doors for them.

Also before the internet came into existence, the home-owner or small remodeler would be unlikely to even find a cabinet door manufacturer, so the possibility of buying direct from the manufacturer just didn’t exist.

The internet has broken through that barrier for remodelers, home-owners, and do-it-yourselfers, allowing small users the opportunity to buy direct. A quick Google search for “cabinet doors” returns several sources. The top returns are the big-box stores, Ikea, and Ebay, and other large retail outlets, but following those listings you will start to see some actual manufacturers. While several of the manufacturers sell only to the cabinet trade, some others will sell to the public.

CabinetDoors.Com, a division of The Door Stop is one of those manufacturers that make custom cabinet doors available to everyone.

The Door Stop was the first cabinet door manufacturer to offer cabinet doors and drawer fronts factory-direct on the internet (that’s why our internet division is was able to register the domain name www.cabinetdoors.com).

Our manufacturing efficiency and cost structure has not gone unnoticed by other internet entrepreneurs. Many internet websites offering cabinet doors are actually purchasing our products and simply re-selling them on their websites…with an additional markup as their profit.

The internet is still evolving but it’s impact as of today is clear. Customers now have access to manufactured goods without the requirement of buying those goods from the end-of-the-chain retail store. Like many manufacturers, The Door Stop is offering our products directly to the consumer.

Our internet division, www.cabinetdoors.com, offers far more choices than any retail store can carry and at prices they just cannot march.
