Who Are We?

Direct Co-ops is a group-buying platform for SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), bringing together local and global business communities to leverage their group buying power and maximize their bottom line. Our platform was created to help SMEs and mom and pop shops enjoy the same buying power as the big chains and online retailers, by voting on the products they need and saving as much as 50% (or more) on the prices they normally pay.

Membership on our platform is free and open to all registered businesses. We are joined by independent business associations, cooperatives, BIAs, nonprofit organizations, academic and government institutions in North America and around the world, dedicated to helping SMEs flourish.

We welcome all businesses to join our platform and start enjoying the buying power of thousands of businesses in your community!

We Are Strong When We Come Together!

How It Works?

Together WE CAN make a DIFFERENCE!
It's Pretty Straight-forward

By combining our buying power with other small businesses like yours, we can negotiate lower purchasing prices for the products we need to run our businesses and what we sell to our customers.

The more members that join, the better prices we can get!

Our group voting platform allows our members to select or recommend items for group purchase. If you do not see the items you need, you can 'Nominate' your products to start a buying group and we will add them for other businesses to vote on.

Here's how it works:

  • Step 1

    Vote on products together with other businesses to join a buying group.

  • Step 2

    We source the products and negotiate better wholesale prices with qualified vendors.

  • Step 3

    We confirm and place your order at the new group volume price.

  • Step 4

    We deliver your order straight to your door or you pick it up from a nearby UPS store.

Let's use this simple LED light bulbs example. Today, at any of the hardware stores, energy efficient light bulbs cost approximately $9 per unit. By just 1000 of us coming together as a buying group, we will reduce the price by over 75%. Imagine all products are made cheaper by us coming together. Now, let's apply the same way of cooperation to all the products that you need to run your business down to products you retail to your customers.

The buying power of big corporations in the hands of small businesses!
