    We are currently purchasing our IT and computer consumables from stationery suppliers and other non-specialist suppliers and therefore not getting best prices/discounts.

    We spend c£20k+ on leads and cables, chargers, connectors, splitters, privacy screens, batteries etc, etc. This excludes toners and cartridges.

    Can anyone recommend a specialist supplier please? A friend uses but does not recommend them as they don't give discounts apparently.

    Can anyone help please?

    Thank you.

    I found Amazon for most IT stuff and ebuyer the cheapest. Amazon offers a business account and even without any discount they com in cheaper. The margins in pc goods are very lo hence you would not get big discounts.

    Over the years we found the best practice is to purchase them from various suppliers as no single one can do everything right. In the beginning we only use ebuyer but then they got greedy and teh RMA process becoming more painful to useless with returns.
    Currently we only use Amazon, CPC and ebay for almost everything we need and we purchase around £40k of goods between them.
