Frequently asked questions

Learn more about Ply

If you have any further questions, Get in touch with our friendly team.
What is Ply?

Ply is an RFQ (request for quote) materials marketplace, financing, and payments platform that reduces the overhead of managing, negotiating, and sourcing mechanical finished materials. Mechanical contractors use Ply by 1) creating a materials RFQ for a project or inventory order, 2) receiving multiple RFQ bids from suppliers within the Ply network or your network, 3) selecting the RFQ proposal that makes sense for your business, 4) paying for the materials ordered through Direct Pay, proposed net terms, or one of our many financing options.

What benefits can I expect by using Ply?

Companies that use Ply can expect an increase in materials margins and cost confidence and a decrease in company time sourcing materials.  Think of us as an extension of your buying team working on behalf of and dedicated to improving your materials sourcing process.

What types of skilled-trades companies do Ply work with?

Currently, Ply works with mechanical contractors and intends to expand into other trades in the future. If you’re not a mechanical contractor and want to use Ply or have questions, please reach us at: or start a chat with us.

What locations does Ply service right now?

Ply services New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut and plans on expanding to other states in the future. If you service states outside our current ones, please feel free to reach out to us at or start a chat with us.

How much will Ply cost me?

Ply charges a flat transaction fee when an RFQ is accepted. The transaction fee will either be added or invoiced, depending on how the RFQ is structured.

What level of support can I expect when using Ply?

Ply is here to be an integrated partner to your business and strives for the highest level of customer success.
