The internet has allowed the DIY home-owner access to wholesale cabinet doors direct from the manufacturer, with no middleman to increase the price.
In the past if the DIY home-owner could locate a real manufacturer, he would likely find the manufacturer unwilling to sell his products directly to the home-owner. These manufacturers had tailored marketing toward home builders and custom cabinet shops, and simply were not interested in a one-time order from a home-owner.
The internet has made selling direct to the home-owner into a profitable side-market by removing the cost of marketing and sales. A well designed website allows the home-owner access to the manufacturers products with no marketing or sales staff to inflate costs. The website allows the customer to select and order the product with no manufacturer assistance required. The website will place the order into the manufacturing schedule and coordinate the shipping, again without any additional marketing or sales costs.
Once manufacturers started to realize that allowing home-owners to purchase their products online, without increasing the size of the marketing and sales staff, the business models started to change.
For the past 18 years The Door Stop has been offering cabinet doors and drawer fronts directly to home-owners through the website CabinetDoors.com.
The sales cost to The Door Stop is actually less that the cost of sales to home builders, so the smaller average-size of the home-owner sales is offset by the marketing savings.
This is the reason The Door Stop started www.cabinetdoors.com and operated the website as a wholesale source of cabinet doors marketed direct to the home-owner.
Wholesale cabinet doors sold factory-direct to the home-owner reduces marketing costs to allow web sales at significant saving to the home-owner. These cost savings typically range between 30% to 50% below the large chain retail stores.
