We Buy & - Experts-Comptables en ligne certifiés QuickBooks et Receipt-bank

Save on your purchases with We Buy

Overhead costs, an important expense item for VSEs – SMEs

Les frais généraux englobent généralement les éléments suivants :

Overhead expenses generally include the following items:

  • Consumables (office supplies, cleaning products, tools, etc.)
  • Technical services (cleaning, reception, logistics, security…)
  • Intellectual services (communication, legal, research…)
  • Investments (works, fittings, IT equipment, etc.)
  • Taxes and contributions (property taxes, professional taxes, contributions…).

However, these overheads represent nearly 15 to 25% of a company’s turnover. Optimizing these costs is therefore essential, especially for VSEs and SMEs. Indeed, when you are a small company, it is not always easy to negotiate the best purchase prices.

First of all, because you usually order smaller volumes. Secondly, because you do not always have the time and in-house resources to negotiate more advantageous terms with your suppliers.

We Buy, the kost-killer solution for small businesses

French start-up, We Buy is a French start-up offering a smart management solution that allows small companies to outsource their purchasing function. The solution is positioned as a central purchasing unit with negotiated framework agreements with several suppliers for a multitude of products and services.

More advantageous prices

By pooling the needs of its members, We Buy allows them to benefit from 15 to 65% savings on their purchases. Economies of scale to which a small company alone would not have had access.

And the framework contracts negotiated with each of the suppliers are not simply limited to the price. They also include advantageous conditions on maintenance, delivery times and a variety of other advantages (environmentally friendly products and processes, etc.)

More effective management

We Buy provides a dedicated platform that centralizes all products and services at reduced prices. It allows you to easily place and manage your orders, track your invoices and purchase history. You no longer have to contact the different suppliers one by one and negotiate the terms. This will save you time and serenity.

It also integrates specific features according to the different types of suppliers (frequency management, retrieving products ordered via the platform, etc.).

To date, We Buy already offers a catalogue of 14 supplier categories, covering office supplies, snacking, photography, telephony and much more.

Tailor-made support

A team of experinced buyers and a dedicated contact person will support you at all times. At the beginning of the collaboration to assess your needs and immediately identify the expenses that can be reduced. Then to take charge of all your purchases and manage any contingencies.

For specific services or products not yet listed in the catalogue, We Buy teams will on demand source the right supplier for you. They will also manage the entire process: the call for tenders, negotiate the conditions, help with contractualization and even monitor implementation.

We Buy is thus an awesome kost-killing tool dedicated to VSEs and SMEs! And new members are currently benefiting from 6 months of free membership.


Of course, with Blendy by Cogesten, QuickBooks certified digital CPA, you will also be able to automatically reflect your receipts in your accounting and QuickBooks. This allows you to better control and manage your cash flow, a key factor for small structures.

Extrait Kbis gratuit via MonIdenum

The French “extrait Kbis” certificate is now free of charge

What is an “extrait Kbis” in France?

In France a certificate of incorporation is called “extrait Kbis“. It is an official document issued by the Registrar Office of the Commercial Court (Greffe du Tribunal de Commerce). This document confirms the legal existence of your company and its registration in the Trade and Companies Register (RCS).

It includes:

  • the name of the registration office
  • company information (legal form, capital, company name, founder, head quarter, trade name, etc.)
  • the registration number
  • the activity code

Generally, you will have to provide this “company ID” when opening a business bank account, to answer calls for tenders or requests of your accountant. For instance, if you wish to work with Blendy, French online CPA, we will ask you to provide this certificate as starting point of our collaboration.

The French “Kbis” now free of charge!

Until now, obtaining this certificate of incorporation in France was unfortunately not free of charge, even if the cost was rather reasonable (less than 4€). But since this certificate is only valid for a period of 3 months, you were often obliged to renew your certificate (and budget) several times within a year.

But that was before!
Since October 2019, as legal representative of a French company you can get in a few clicks a recent French Kbis certificate free of charge. Indeed, in the continuity of the latest French financial laws, the Registry has set up a secure online platform: MonIdenum (available currently only in French).

The purpose of this platform is to simplify the lives of business leaders by making it easier for them to contact the Registry. Today, companies registered in the RCS, RSAC or RSEIRL can therefore obtain their certificate of incorporation for free and as often as necessary on the MonIdenum website.

From now on, to obtain your French “Kbis extract”, simply register on the portal by providing a copy of your ID-card or passport, your company name, your email address and your phone number. The system will then automatically verify this information with the Registry records. Your account is instantly confirmed, which allows you to generate a unique authentication key.

Then, you simply connect to your dedicated space with this key and download your certificate via the “Kbis & Performance” tab. It’s that simple and quick!

This makes indeed registered companies’ life easier!

eCommerce facile avec Blendy, QuickBooks, Shopify et erplain

erplain + Shopify + QuickBooks : 3 apps to better manage your e-shop

When you manage multiple storage locations and sales channels, inventory management is a critical issue for your company. Because it has a direct impact on sales and customer satisfaction.

Imagine, you are a wholesaler or distributor of sports equipment, wine or office supplies. To increase your sales, you already offer your products via an e-commerce platform and also directly to retailers or in physical stores. What happens if a customer places an order for one of your products on your online store when you have a few minutes before sold out your stock directly to another customer? It’s a disaster!

The only way out is to pick up your phone to let the first one know that his order will be delayed at the risk that he simply cancells his order. In the end, you will have lost time and probably also lost a customer who will now prefer to order from one of your competitors… Yes, it’s a pain, we know it!

Time to switch to erplain and automate your processes

Thanks to erplain, you will now be able to automate and professionalize your inventory management. Especially designed for start-ups, VSEs and SMEs, erplain is a simple and intuitive solution for optimal stock and supply management.

  • Multi-warehouse: Manage and monitor your stocks in real time even if your products are stored in several locations (warehouses, physical shops…)
  • Multi-currency: Optimize and manage your supplies even if you have suppliers in several countries (Europe, China, US…)
  • Multi-channel: Manage your orders and accelerate your sales even if you have several points of sale (e-commerce, shops, direct…)

It is also an extremely complete solution that integrates advanced features such as barcode scanning or dropshipping.

Go even further with Shopify and QuickBooks

If you have a Shopify e-shop, it becomes even easier. Simply connect erplain with Shopify so that the available products are reflected in real time in your e-shop. You then manage your stocks centrally via erplain regardless of the number of e-shops, points of sale and warehouses you need to manage.

You can also connect erplain to QuickBooks Online to automate your entire financial process. Your quotes, purchase orders, invoices and refunds are synchronized in real time with your accounting and cash flow. This way you know at any time your revenue and can anticipate your cash flow to the point to manage your supplies and purchases.

We will ensure a painless implementation and providing advanced know-how to automate your financial and management flows.
