Frequently Asked Questions

Vendor FAQ's

NetVendor Bidding is a new feature on the NetVendor Platform that allows property managers to create projects and invite vendors to bid on those projects all within the app. Vendors can view projects, communicate in real-time with project leads, share files, and submit bids for projects.

When NetVendor Bidding launches, we want to send bid notifications to the right person at your company so that you do not miss any opportunities. Please do the following steps outlined in the video to the right. 

1. Update Search Categories: By clicking “Edit your profile” from the drop-down menu under your name (upper right). Click on the “Category” tab and select all services you provide. (Multiple can be selected by holding down the control key)

2. Add Additional Contacts: By clicking “Edit your profile” from the same drop-down menu. Click on the “Additional Contacts” tab to add new contacts.

3. Update your profile: By clicking “Account Settings” from the same drop-down menu.  Please ensure your name, email and phone number are up to date.

 

NetVendor Bidding will put your company in front of Property Managers in your area who are searching for vendors to submit bids for upcoming projects. This will streamline the bidding process, saving you time and helping you to grow your business.

Once NetVendor Bidding launches, Property Managers will begin creating projects inside the tool and inviting vendors to bid on those projects. If your company is invited to bid on a project, you will receive an email with details about the project and a link to the Bidding feature within your NetVendor profile. These emails will come from bids@netvendor.com and the subject line will be “Invitation to bid” followed by the project name and ID.

There is no limit to the number of projects you can submit a bid for.

NetVendor Bidding is scheduled for release in 2024.

When Property Managers need to find vendors for a project, they search the NetVendor database for vendors providing the services they need in their area.

No, you can decline to bid on any project for which you do not wish to submit a bid.

For a limited time, we are waiving success fees on accepted bids. At a future date, a nominal success fee will be charged. This fee is part of our commitment to continually provide you with top-notch services and support. We’ll provide ample notice and detailed information about this fee structure well in advance, ensuring you have all the information you need to continue bidding successfully.
