This chapter contains examples of letters that are commonly written to vendors and suppliers. The occasion for writing these letters varies from something as simple as placing orders to issues that must be carefully handled, such as complaints about salespeople or products. The letters here serve as models for professionals to use in their own dealings with vendors and suppliers.
Unless a formal proposal is required and you’re writing a formal letter to accompany that proposal, many of the letters in this chapter can be sent as emails or as attachments to emails. For those letters that can be adapted to emails, it’s simple enough to copy the text of the sample letter into the text of your email.
