Trading Term Performance
Annual Survey
New TSG EZBill 

Preferred Partners
Covid-19 Resources


TSG has shared today with each outlet their trading term performance result for Q1 2021 this week. Following the positive feedback of previous rounds, we have again included additional information and provided separate trading term performance results on TMC and RYO rather than a combined average. This shall help you to make more informed decisions and to better understand what each supplier is actually paying you in trading terms. Contact your BDM if you want to discuss further.

Averages across the network are below:.


The TSG annual survey has been sent to all stores.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey, we value your feedback and use it to help shape the future direction of TSG.

2021 sees the next evolution of TSG Preferred Partners
with the introduction of TSG EZbill.

TSG EZbill allows for TRUSTED industry suppliers to PARTNER with TSG formally, and allows stores to purchase products via the suppliers online shop, or sales rep, and enjoy TSG DDPay payment terms. 

The 1st TSG EZbill partner is JD Suppliers, supplying TSG stores nationally with a huge range of essential tobacco accessory lines. TSG stores are now able to order from the entire JD Catalogue, and enjoy 28+ up to 7 extra days payment terms!

TSG EZbill partners can be found in the Preferred Partners tab, by checking that the categories describing the partners product includes TSG EZbill.

The 3 P’s

Promotions –
New promotions for PML/BAT/Richland (2 weeks only) /Tabsol/Scandinavian. 
All on the website.

Priceboards/ticketing – All states updated. 

Price per stick spreadsheet – PML promotions for next week continue to have brands where there are different case deals for A, B & C grade outlets as well as Hybrid deals (outlets who have opted-in to the 50% PML price board offer). 

The brands to check are:-

  • Bond St 30’s & 40’s
  • Longbeach Fresh Burst 20’s, Longbeach 30’s & 40’s
  • Peter Jackson Classic 30’s & Peter Jackson 30’s

Please check, and adjust where necessary, the case deal on your state price per stick spreadsheet to determine your final sell price.  This, in some cases, will also require positional changes on your price boards as per what is on the website.

How do I change the price on the price per stick spreadsheet I hear you ask?  Easy.

When you open the document click on “enable editing”.  In the red boxes you can then enter the margin you work on for cartons and packets if different to the existing 5% cartons and 7% packets.  If you adjust the margin it will automatically update the spreadsheet to reflect your pricing.  Finally if you want to change the promotion case deals simply type in the new carton case deal and it will update the packet column and the new promotional sell price.  Same process works for the RYO page except you only need to enter the pouch case deal.
