The short answer is I have no idea! The longer, and hopefully, more helpful answer is that unless you know what your DEPPOS (discount earned per pound of sales) was last year, then there is no way anyone can tell you how much you will save this year. Even if you do know what your DEPPOS value was, discounts are based on a percentage, so if you don't know what the unit price is going to be, then estimating a saving is simply bottling fog! What is more, those who ask for your wholesale data so that they can calculate how much you will save are well aware that it can't be done. If you want a rule of thumb, then I believe that practices joining MerlinVet-Cel will typically save between 2 and 5 %, depending on how well they purchase currently.
Absolutely not! We trade with all three of the current veterinary wholesalers in the UK and have no interest in interfering with that relationship.
No! However, we do suggest changes that are to your advantage but whether or not you choose to make them is purely up to you.
Of course you can! The relationship between company representatives and our practices is one of our most important contacts. When a representative comes to see you they will know exactly how much you pay for their products and you will be able to sit down with them and review your cost price on the MerlinVet-Cel websites partner's page.
From time to time manufacturers will put additional terms or offers on the partner's page or they will present you with FOC offers when they call. These are opportunities that you can avail yourself of and we provide a smart phone app that will help you calculate your cost price if you take the offer.
All prices are on the website showing list price, cost price and nett/nett
