Samsung offers VIP Purchase Programme

Samsung offers a VIP Purchase Programme (VPP) that claims to provide professional organisations with access to what the company says is an exclusive e-commerce portal that has the latest products available for purchase.
"The company is committed to providing consumers with the latest technology innovations. Our extensive range of solutions is designed to fit the diverse needs of our customers. With the VPP, we are taking this experience a step further by giving professional organisations a platform to offer additional value to their members. For example, the Eagle Canyon Golf Estate has already successfully used the programme and we look forward to extending this service to other organisations alike," says Matthew Thackrah, deputy MD and director of consumer electronics at Samsung South Africa.

An organisation can decide on a pre-approved list of branded products that include fridges, digital cameras, printers, televisions, tablets and notebooks to be loaded on the VPP portal. Members then simply select the product they want to buy, pay either by credit card or by electronic transfer and, once payment is approved, the company says the order will be sent to the fulfilment partner with delivery taking place within seven working days.

"The VPP offers VIPs the widest portfolio of consumer electronic devices from one brand and provides it at one convenient online shopping portal. This secure portal is available around the clock and is regularly updated as the company releases new innovative products to the market," concludes Thackrah.
