Vendorco – Costco Vendor Guide

Costco Vendor Guides are trained product placement companies, product brokers and manufacturer’s representatives who through their experience and knowledge can help guide manufacturers, service providers and distributors through the Costco buying process.

Costco Vendor Guides are available at different levels of knowledge, experience and understanding. They can be defined as novice, experienced, expert and veteran. In general each level can be defined by the number of years, how many items sold or promoted and the specific category experience they offer. A novice Costco Vendor Guide will have less than 3 years of experience and largely take a supportive role in the product pitch or placement process; they have very limited knowledge of the categories and department nuances. An experienced Costco Vendor Guide will have 3-10 years of sporadic product pitch or placement with direct and supportive roles in the product placement process; the experience is not likely to encompass all Costco categories. Beware of the specialists who cross over to several retailers like Sam’s Club, Costco, BJ’s Warehouse and more, they may have the years but have watered down their experience through broad sales. An expert Costco Vendor Guide has 10 or more years of Costco specific experience, knowledge, and established reputation as well as relationships. A veteran has many years of Costco employment combined with many years of Costco product placement expertise.
