Buy It Direct (BID)
Help strengthen the direct selling profession by looking to other direct sellers for the products and services you use every day! See how your buying dollars can make a 7.2 billion dollar difference for direct sellers throughout the United State by "buying direct" from direct sellers like you!
What is the bid Program?
The purpose of the bid Program is to encourage direct sellers, as well as the general public, to look first to the direct selling community for the goods and services they use every day.
It is, in essence, the Alliance's effort to provide greater economic opportunity for all our members as we increase awareness of the fine goods and services offered through direct selling channels.
What is the vision of the bid Program?
Through the bid Program, the Alliance will harness the collective buying power of the millions of direct sellers in the United States and abroad. In doing so, we not only support the success of the independent direct sellers with whom we do business, we will also exponentially increase worldwide revenues generated through direct selling channels everywhere.
How do I become a bid Partner?
To become a DSWA "bid" Partner you must use, on the average, one dozen products each day that have been purchased through an independent direct seller or through a direct selling company for which you are a distributor.
We ask that you join our bid family in the spirit in which it is created - one of support and appreciation of this great industry.
What benefits do I enjoy as a DSWA bid Partner?
First and foremost, you will enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting the success of independent direct sellers everywhere while helping to make the direct selling industry an even stronger economic force in the United States and abroad.
If, through the bid program, we inspire 50% of direct sellers to purchase $100 more per month through a direct selling channel, in one year we will increase direct selling revenues in the United States by 7.2 billion dollars!
Assuming approximately half of those revenues are paid to distributors through commissions and overrides, bid will put more than 3.6 billion dollars into the pockets of direct sellers in the United States in one year alone.
