3 cuts b2b upfront payment in a bid to improve connection quality
3 has moved to a deferred payment system to improve connection quality.
Upfront payment for dealer and distributor b2b connections has now been reduced by 10%.
The reduction will be taken from the commission paid at six months of a customer’s contract, if still connected.
The new system started on 1 June, but some distributors, such as Fone Logistics and Avenir, are yet to convey the change to their dealer base.
One distributor said: ‘3’s acquisitions commissions are strong – they are trying to improve quality and allowing themselves some security.’
