How to Determine Our Profit %

Steel Building Packages (Option #1)


The most common indicator our customers use to determine what profit % to select is based on how much savings they notice with a Factory Steel Overstock quote. Many customers feel if they are able to maintain a savings with FSO, while still offering 10%, then they feel good about offering that percentage amount.  Furthermore, as long as FSO is able to attract a comparable number people willing to offer 10% as those offering the minimum 3%, FSO will will to continue presenting this unique savings opportunity.  Remember, no matter what percent you choose (3, 5, 7 or 10) you will be given the same level of customer service. 

Wholesale Quote (Option #3)


Factory Steel Overstock believes in rewarding people who streamline the selling process by buying sooner than later; therefore FSO has provided a means for the more prepared buyers to save when Requesting a Wholesale Quote.  For instance, if you are READY to pay profit % the same day as received wholesale quote, you can select a profit % as low as 3%.  Needless to say, the longer the timeline you choose to pay selected profit, the higher the profit %. Buyers have full access to the Option 1 and Option 2 Estimator pricing in the meantime.

Below is an EXAMPLE of the profit percents listed on Wholesale Quote form page.

  • 3% profit selection must be paid same day as initial quote (no exceptions).  
  •  5% profit selection must be paid within 3 days of initial quote (no exceptions).
  •  7% profit selection must be paid within 7 days of initial quote (no exceptions).
  •  10% profit selection must be paid within 10 days of initial quote (no exceptions).
  • 12% profit selection must be paid within 30 days of initial quote (no exceptions).

For those Requesting A Wholesale Quote, please have the integrity to pay the profit % you selected within the time-line you selected OR email a competitor’s quote (black out competitor’s name) that reflects a lower price within this time-line. Factory Steel Overstock will honor its guaranteed saving terms. 

Our Sincere Truth and Request from You:

 In an effort to be one of the rare companies giving the public comprehensive online pricing, we may occasionally err on posting some prices above our wholesale cost.  Therefore, please assist us by letting us know if you have received ANY quote lower than our online price offered.  We will Gladly honor our minimum $500 savings guarantee (including whatever profit % you selected), plus give you one additional feature more than any other offer.  Average savings 15%.
