Here at House of Batteries, we specialise in supplying wholesale batteries to retailers. In fact, we’re one of the largest and most trusted retail battery suppliers in the UK. If you run a retail business and wish to start stocking batteries, you can rely on us to provide you with high-quality batteries from brands such as Duracell and Energizer at affordable prices. We also understand that if you haven’t previously stocked batteries to sell to your customers, you may not know how to ensure that they sell well. That’s why we’ve created a simple three-step guide to selling batteries at the retail level. 

1. Store your stock of batteries carefully

It’s very important that you store your supply of batteries in a dry environment at room temperature. Dampness and extremes of heat and cold can damage batteries, which means they won’t work properly when your customers buy them. By storing your batteries correctly, you can ensure that they will work well for your customers and thereby guarantee that they will purchase batteries from you again in the future. Never ignore the importance of repeat custom!

2. Always display your batteries prominently

Because batteries are used in such a wide variety of devices, they are very ubiquitous. In fact, they are so commonplace, consumers often forget about them, even if they need to buy them! Luckily, there’s a simple solution to this problem: display your batteries prominently so that they catch your customers’ eyes. This reminds your customers that they need to buy batteries and will maximise the number of sales you make.

3. If a set of batteries doesn’t work, offer a refund

We’re confident that all the batteries we supply are top-quality and are unlikely to fail you or your customers. However, offering refunds for batteries that don’t work is a good way to set customers’ minds at rest and ensure that you become their first choice when they need to buy batteries.

Here at House of Batteries, we want your business to be successful… especially at selling batteries! Following this simple, three-step guide can help you make that goal a reality.
