How to get a Trade Card

How can I buy from Selco?


Selco is exclusively for the Trade, so to buy from us you need to have a trade card. To get a trade card, you must be a bona fide tradesperson or business owner.

What do I need to show to get a trade card?


To get a trade card all you need to do is fill out our registration form and supply one of the following proofs of business:

Business Card Letterhead Compliment Slip Certificate of Incorporation Company Invoice Company Order Form VAT Certificate Tax Related Document Company Bank Statement CSCS cards Tenancy Agreements (Landlords) Tenancy Deposit Protection Certificates Liability Insurance Certificates

Note: Please do not upload credit or debit card information

Once you've completed the form, you'll get your trade card number straight away. Unlike with other builders' merchants, there's no need to wait to start buying everything you need.

Why do we need to see proof of business and what is it?


As our prices are exclusively for the trade and are not available to the general public, we ask to see proof of business so we can confirm you're a genuine tradesperson or business.

We accept any of the following proofs of business which prove you are a genuine tradesperson or business:

What are the different trade account types?


When you register for a Selco trade card, you can sign up for either a cash account or a credit account.

If you sign up for a cash account, when you purchase products from us you’ll pay as normal using cash, or your credit/ debit card.

If you apply for a credit account, you’ll automatically receive 30 days free credit. Any products you pick up in-branch will be added to your account. You'll receive a purchases statement payable at the end of the month.

Which account type should I sign up for?
