What is Tradavo?
Tradavo is a special market retail services company that has created a powerful online marketplace to bring retailers, distributors and manufacturers together on one online platform to do business. We have built a network of qualified, local and national distributors and offer their wide assortment of food, beverage and sundry items on our easy to use online ordering platform.
Tradavo's ordering platform allows managers to order their inventory from multiple distributors via one online interface with one invoice to reconcile, and centralized customer service instead of faxing and calling distributors or going offsite to shop at wholesale clubs and grocery stores.
Tradavo pulls together the best distributors in the country, puts all their products online in an easy to navigate format, and ships products directly to the property for free! One site, one order, free shipping! Tradavo makes supplying a retail operation a fast and easy, one-stop solution.
Is Tradavo a distributor?
No. We are a special market retail services company that has negotiated advantageous pricing and terms with a variety of distributors to offer the products managers need in one place with all the convenience of online ordering.
All shipments come directly from the individual distributors with preferred terms such as low ordering minimums and free delivery as negotiated by Tradavo on behalf of our clients. All products are shipped UPS/FedEx.
What kind of properties do you serve?
Tradavo serves all special market retailers - any small format retail operation that functions within a non-retail industry. For example, hotel pantries are a small convenience store that functions within the hotel industry. We also service campground stores, general stores, front end retail needs, corporate breakrooms and client appreciation needs, pharmacies, and concession stands.

We are adding categories and products regularly and specialize in products most often carried by markets, pantries, gift shops, and convenience stores.
Do you offer a billing program?
