TradeHelp has announced the launch of BuyTrade; an industry-first, free, multi-merchant heating product finder and ordering platform.

Free to access on both mobile and desktop devices, BuyTrade is targetted at installers and aims to help them find the spare parts they need quickly and efficiently.

Using the online search tool, tradesmen can find the part they need from over 1.6 million spares (all heating products will be added later this year), using real-time stock availability from over 1000 merchant branches. So far, BuyTrade has partnered with City Plumbing, Wolseley and HRP Trade, but plans to increase the merchant database are on the horizon.

Once the installer has found the spare part they require, they can compare collection and delivery options (including same-day delivery), as well as prices, to help find the best fulfilment option available for them and their customer.

If a part is out of stock or discontinued, they can send a request to the BuyTrade team, who will assist in sourcing the same part or a suitable alternative (usually within 48 hours).

Speaking about the launch, Martin Jones, Managing Director at TradeHelp, said: “We’re extremely proud to be introducing BuyTrade to the industry. While there are single-merchant search solutions available on the market, this is the first software that combines a product finder and multi-merchant ordering platform, and is absolutely free to use – there is no catch.”
