Bulletin for suppliers: Important highlights for listing new sale-to-order selection products in the end of year 2020

Because of the upcoming tax increase Alko does not have listing dates for new sale-to-order products within weeks 50-53.

New sale-to-order products that are wished to be listed in December have to be offered by 16 November 2020 the latest, preferably already well in advance before this date. The offer needs to be filled in correctly and product’s registration to Palpa recycling system must be in Palpa’s update run on 13 November 2020, for the product to be listed in normal two week process time. Otherwise the listing will be delayed and transferred to January 2021. If the offering process is severely congested, the products cannot be promised a listing date in the year 2020.

The price calculator for year 2021 will be published in weeks 44-45. The tax rate in the price calculator will be in accordance with the government proposal. There will be two price calculators in use in the Partner Network. When the product is wished to be listed in year 2020, the offer is made by using the price calculator 2020. The price calculator 2021 should be used if the product is going to be listed in year 2021.

Alko is renewing its pricing system. The new system will be implemented during the first week of 2021. Because of the implementation there may be a delay in the listing process of sale-to-order products.
