    Get Behind Salvation Army Christmas Appeal:

    TOTTENHAM, VIC– Following on from their support of The
    Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal, Tonnex International have again aligned
    with The Salvation Army for their 2009 Christmas Appeal, pledging to
    donate $5 from every sales invoice throughout November.

    International Director, George Kozman commented that “we were pleased to
    be able to raise much needed funds towards the Bushfire Appeal earlier
    in the year and again encourage all our customers to help support this
    truly great cause”

    Major Neil Venables, Territorial Public
    Relations Secretary of The Salvation Army, said that at Christmas time,
    more than any other time of the year, people turn to The Salvation Army
    for help. “During the Christmas & New Year period many people
    struggle to make ends meet. 2009 has been a very unsettled and uncertain
    year for many Australians. At this seasonal time of year there is an
    increase in pressure on families.”

    Tonnex, who celebrate their
    11th Birthday in November are hoping to raise $30,000 towards this years
    Christmas Appeal. To help reach a maximum donation, Tonnex will also be
    providing a donation portal on their website at where
    Resellers can donate directly to the Appeal. “With the support of the
    Australian community, this Christmas The Salvation Army will provide
    help in way of food vouchers, hampers and toys to people in need. This
    will include the distribution of nearly a quarter of a million toys and
    providing in excess of 100,000 food vouchers and hampers”, said Major
    Venables.“We are passionate about supporting our community and as a
    business we do all we can to support charities such as The Salvation
    Army in the amazing work that they do for so many in need” said
    Kozman.For information on how you can help, Freecall 1800 TONNEX (1800

    Tonnex launch Reseller Webstore

    TOTTENHAM, VIC — As online sales continue
    to increase and consumer resistance to e-commerce continues to
    decrease, more and more businesses are creating an on-line sales

    Due to research undertaken by Tonnex International in
    2008, they found that the consistently strong viewpoint from their
    Resellers was that they would be interested in having their own webshop
    if it didn’t come with the tedious administration and the technical
    understanding that is typically required with e-commerce solutions.

    to National Marketing Manager, James Rendell, the responses from this
    research provided enough evidence for Tonnex to engage web developers
    and e-marketers to build a fully automated webshop available for Tonnex
    Resellers. “The overwhelming response indicated that Resellers wanted a
    website that allowed them to sell on-line – however the monetary and
    time costs to create and administer such a solution were the barriers
    preventing them from doing so. Therefore, we decided that any solution
    we provided would need to be fully automated, easy to use, customisable
    and most importantly affordable. So that’s what we had built”.

    solution termed; Instant Consumables Webshop will give Tonnex Resellers
    access to this fully automated Webshop, pre-populated with all the
    products from the Tonnex Pricelist and a fully integrated shopping cart
    allowing the Reseller to conduct on-line sales virtually immediately.
    Tonnex believe that providing Resellers with access to sell the full
    range of products from the Tonnex pricelist gives them an ability to
    promote and provide thousands of products to the market without having
    to hold them all in stock. For those Resellers who want to add in other
    products in addition to Genuine OEM consumables, the system also has the
    functionality to add new categories and products.

    comments that the key with the system is in its automation and ease of
    use for both the Reseller and the end-user. “The system has been
    specifically built for non web developers. The setup wizard walks the
    Reseller through each step of the setup process which will have them up
    and running in around 30 minutes”. The Reseller has the ability to
    easily customise settings on what profit margins they wish to apply to
    different products and categories, what pricing structures they want to
    make available to their different customers, what delivery charges to
    apply based on state and order value and which payment methods they wish
    to make available – including pay pal and a range of other on-line
    credit card payment modules. From there the site will monitor any new
    products any obsolete products and adjust the Resellers price in
    accordance with any changes to the Tonnex price list, therefore
    maintaining the Resellers pre-set margins.  

    When asked about the
    benefit for Tonnex, Rendell stated, “it’s simple, this system will
    increase our sales; albeit indirectly, but working with our customers to
    help them increase their sales without astronomically increasing their
    costs will help us reach this objective and we believe this is the best
    system available to achieve the desired result”.

    Resellers do
    not need an existing website to use this system as it is fully hosted
    and provides Resellers the ability to add in information pages such as
    ‘about us’ and ‘contact us’ so they can use the webshop as their entire
    company website. For those Resellers with an existing website, Tonnex
    will assist them with linking the webshop into their existing website.
    There is also a support team, video tutorials and a comprehensive list
    of FAQ’s to assist Resellers in getting the most out of the system.

    also commented that the introduction of on-line webshops was expected
    to drive greater in-store sales for Resellers. “Research shows that
    approximately 1 in 3 consumers use multiple channels when shopping, but
    most importantly these multi-channel shoppers spend up to 10 times more
    and show greater loyalty than those single channel shoppers. Therefore
    the introduction of an on-line webshop not only allows for an increase
    in Reseller’s sales via the webshop, but provides for customers
    searching for products on-line to then purchase those products from the
    physical storefront, not to mention the value gained from Resellers
    promoting their webshop in-store to drive greater on-line sales after
    hours and in instances of time poor home and business users”.

    trust a key element in buying on-line, Rendell believes that Resellers
    will gain the majority of their sales from their local community. “We
    envisage that the Resellers webshop will help them to expand their
    geographical boundaries, no doubt, but essentially we expect them to
    receive greater sales from their immediate suburbs and districts because
    people prefer to buy from someone local they know and trust. Without a
    webshop Resellers will never know how much business they are really
    losing to those retailers with an on-line presence. That’s why we
    encourage Resellers to promote their webshops through email newsletters,
    in-store flyers and any available community notice boards to generate
    immediate interest from both regular and irregular customers. The thing
    to remember is that most business are open for 8-10 hours a day 5-6 days
    a week, Resellers included, which is why we as a society are finding it
    harder and harder to do our everyday shopping during these typical
    business hours which is a key challenge that a webshop addresses”   

    security always a key concern with buying over the internet, Tonnex
    ensured that the developers used were proven in their knowledge and
    expertise of on-line webshops. “The engine used to run the webshop is on
    a server located in a secure data centre with multiple redundant power
    supplies. It also runs off carrier grade internet connections for
    maximum redundancy and uses 128-bit SSL security for the transmission of
    sensitive data such as credit card details” said Rendell.

    Consumables Webshop is now available to Resellers at a discount monthly
    fee of $149 with $0 setup costs.For more details Freecall 1800 TONNEX
