Buyer Dashboard Overview
Think of PIPEHUB.COM as a mall. It’s one location but with many stores inside. And just like a mall, you can do all the window shopping your heart desires from the outside, but to truly appreciate what’s being offered, you have to go inside. If you would like to just look around at all of the amazing products listed by sellers from all over the world, go ahead!
No user account is necessary to browse. However if you would like to make a purchase or gain access to a ton of amazing features, you must create a buyer account. It’s simple, click on the SIGN UP button in the top right of any page, and then fill out the NEW USER section of the form. Follow the instructions as you are prompted and you’re done! You now have access to the BUYER tab dashboard where you can manage all of your buyer features and keep track of all your purchases!
Here is a full list of the supplier dashboard menu items found along the left hand side of the screen and a description of each feature.
