Partner Feature – Golfbidder3 min read

It not very often a business pitch is put in front of you that is genuinely going to grow your business and increase your turnover. But this is one of those rare occasions. Working alongside Golfbidder will drive new business to your store and increase sales. It is all incredibly simple – and completely free!

As a member of a Confederation of Professional Golf Member Country, European PGA Professionals can benefit from the most sophisticated golf club pricing system on the planet.

The video below explains how – simply click the screen or press pause to interact with this video and see more Videos available from Golfbidder.

“Golfbidder has eliminated the trials and tribulations of selling second hand golf clubs.”

Keith Maxwell – Head Professional, Sunningdale Golf Club

The increasing number of new releases in the hardware market has a dramatic effect on the price of even recent product lines. This increases the need to move stock quickly to avoid the risk of being left with redundant items and potential losses. Selling to Golfbidder removes this risk as we’ll take the clubs from you, leaving room (and cash!) for latest products from the manufacturers.

Based near South West London, Golfbidder is the Official Club Exchange of the PGA and CPG (10 years and 2 years respectively) meaning these two governing bodies believe Golfbidder can genuinely help their members. Over 1,200 club professionals use Golfbidder every year to move on their second hand golf clubs.

“Using Golfbidder to take trade-ins has helped me to increase sales and helps me keep control of my stock levels.”

Kieron Stevenson – Head Professional, Royal Troon Golf Club

The way it works is very simple. As you’ll have seen from the video we can offer you (and therefore your customer) instant prices for their old clubs – which they can then use as credit against a new club in YOUR shop

This creation of ‘virtual credit is where we see the scheme really work for your business. By offering to give them something for their old clubs, you’re matching the online price (or beating it) without having to take a hit on margin.

“I’ve received excellent reports about the quality and professional nature of the service that Golfbidder provides for PGA professionals. Golfbidder already employs in-house multi-lingual staff to provide great service to pro’s in Europe. I would encourage all PGA professionals across our member countries to visit www.golfbiddertrade.com to learn more about the way Golfbidder can help retailers increase turnover..” Ian Randell, Chief Executive, Confederation of Professional Golf

By offering a part-exchange service, all parties benefit:

  • You’ll gain more sales and business in your shop by offering a part-exchange service.
  • You’ll have a real advantage as not many retailers offer to accept part-exchanges in Europe.
  • The customer is happy because they have saved money.

WIN! WIN! WIN!

It’s not only the customers’ clubs we want either. It’s yours too.

At the end of the season you may have new stock that you have not sold but would like to get rid of to make room and cash available for the new models. We can buy new stock in bulk.

Offering to take part-exchanges really does stimulate business. Not only does it drive extra money through your till (customers are much more likely to transact if they know they can get something ‘off’ with their old clubs), but it keeps customers loyal.

As key influencers at your respective golf clubs you can quickly gain an additional following from this scheme ….. once people know they can get their new clubs from you and something for their old one, they’ll tell everyone they know!

However you communicate with your customers, whether it’s by email or in-store, ensure they know that yours is a shop where they can turn their old clubs into new ones. Golfbidder will always offer a price for it and that ‘price’ is money which goes towards buying goods in your shop.
