Vendors sell with us for one reason: to expand their reach through our multiple channels to a broad and diverse global customer base who come to CoffeeTec.com to shop. That’s the CoffeeTec Edge!
By partnering with CoffeeTec, you get the benefits of our marketing muscle to propel awareness of your brand and product sales. We use a multi-channel sales and marketing approach to reach our customers:

There is no initial fee required to join. As a non-exclusive reseller of your products, CoffeeTec earns a reseller fee. The terms of this agreement will be discussed, mutually agreed on, drawn up, and executed between CoffeeTec and your company.
Joining the CoffeeTec Vendor Marketplace is easy. Simply fill out and submit our application form and we’ll be in quick contact with you to discuss details and determine if a partnership would be mutually beneficial. In the meantime, you can learn more about this program by reading the FAQs in this section, and related blog post.
With each sale of your product(s) on CoffeeTec’s website, we will provide you with a purchase order for you to drop-ship your product directly to the customer. We will not physically hold any of your inventory, and all shipping and crating are your responsibility.
Beyond product listings in our online shop, CoffeeTec can boost your product offering — and your brand — using our proven digital marketing techniques. In the industry, we call it “pulling” and “pushing.” The difference: A “push” campaign includes digital Internet ads, email campaigns, digital directories, and more. This lets us reach targeted contacts of like interest and offer your product, versus waiting for them to come to us via search engines and website linking (“pull”).
When you become part of the CoffeeTec Vendor Marketplace, you automatically receive everything included in our BASIC promotional package:
- Product listing page on our SEO-enabled website with your product photos and/or videos, and detailed description using highly clickable terms specific to selling coffee equipment
- Vendor Spotlight page highlighting your company and product with internal links to your product listing page. See our Vendor Spotlight on Coffee Crafters here.
