What is Trxade?
Trxade is an online marketplace for pharmacies and other pharmaceutical buyers that provides easy access to pricing from top pharmaceutical suppliers from around the nation. With a simple product search, pharmacies can view the pricing of over 30,000 brand and generic pharmaceutical SKUs. Our system also allows the pharmacy to make immediate purchases from the suppliers of their choice, making it easier than ever to purchase top quality pharmaceuticals at the lowest possible price.
Trxade membership is completely free to licensed pharmacies and registration is simple. Through Trxade’s trademarked Pharmacy Acquisition Cost (PAC), Trxade offers its valued members a cost comparison and purchasing solution for making educated buying decisions.
What are the costs/fees of being a Trxade member?
Trxade Membership is available at NO COST to licensed pharmaceutical buying establishments. There are no fees to register or to make purchases through Trxade.
Wonder how we make money? Our suppliers pay a small transaction fee for purchases made through our website. They benefit from having access to our members on our secure platform.
Do we have to sign a contract?
We do not have purchasing contracts to be a member on Trxade. We offer the flexibility to use our platform as much or as little as needed. The members that maximize their savings are buying up to 10% outside of their Primary supplier and use Trxade as their primary secondary source. Our top Pharmacies purchase over $100,000 per month using our platform and experience a bottom line savings of over $100,000 per month.
If there are no fees to be a member, how does Trxade make money?
Similar to Amazon and eBay, the seller pays a small transaction fee in order to compete for your business. The seller benefits by offering its products to Trxade’s large member base.
What are the suppliers’ shipping terms?
Our Suppliers offer various shipping methods to meet the needs of our members including free next-day, 2nd day, and ground shipping when order minimums are met. If minimum is not met, you can select from the shipping options available and will be shown additional fees, if any.
Orders placed through Trxade are immediately transmitted electronically to the supplier of the products you wish to purchase. In your shopping cart, you will see each supplier name and will have access to additional information about that supplier (license information, shipping guidelines, repayment terms, etc.).
Our intuitive platform selects the best available shipping option for you with the option to change shipping methods as needed.
Please Note: some products must ship via Ground transportation due to laws governing the transportation of some medications (aerosols, liquids, etc.)
Who do I pay for the purchases?
Orders placed through Trxade are immediately transmitted electronically to the supplier(s) you have selected. These suppliers will fulfill and ship your order and will invoice you directly. Most suppliers offer generous repayment terms. The information regarding each supplier’s specific repayment terms can be found in the product search results for each supplier as well as in your shopping cart before checkout.
Are your suppliers track and trace compliant?
Yes, each of Trxade’s suppliers has been thoroughly vetted and is pedigree compliant. Through Trxade, you have direct access to transaction pedigree information via electronic web portal, invoice/pedigree request combo at point of sale, or by directly requesting transaction history – up to six years from point of sale from each supplier.
Do you offer VAWD and VAWD-pending suppliers?
Trxade has VAWD Certified Suppliers and Non-VAWD Suppliers. We make it easy to identify if a supplier is VAWD (Accreditated) on the site, you can also filter to only see VAWD Suppliers based on the individual items you are searching (Example: Diabetic Supplies, Etc.), or hide Non-VAWD Suppliers from all search results via “Manage Suppliers” settings. Each VAWD Supplier’s accreditation is verified through the National Associations of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).
Is Trxade affiliated with a primary supplier?
Trxade has multiple supplier partnerships but is not tied to any of the “Big 3” primary suppliers, Amerisource, Cardinal, or McKesson.
