Capricorn offers much
more than your average
Those who join the nearly 16,000 automotive
businesses which are already Capricorn
members will benefit significantly.
As an intermediary in the automotive industry,
Capricorn facilitates more than $1 billion in purchases
between its members and preferred suppliers.
Capricorn has worked hard over the years to source
products, services and importantly, preferred suppliers,
to ensure its members have the right tools for the right
job when it comes to running their business.
It is more than just a membership because upon
successful completion of a trial period, members apply
to become shareholders and are therefore the owners
of Capricorn so that everyone can share in the success
Capricorn helps members make running their
businesses easier because they enjoy instant day trade
credit with all of the preferred suppliers with up to 60
days interest free, monthly statements for simplified
accounting and access to a variety of networking events
to help grow their businesses.
Carefully selected preferred suppliers are
committed to meeting the needs of members,
promising to supply value for money and quality
products every time.
Capricorn develops, manages and nurtures the
excellent relationships it has with its preferred
suppliers and regularly reviews their offers to ensure
members are getting competitive choices.
Sharing in the rewards
Members share in the success, most notably
through the reward points program and dividends.
In the last financial year alone, members
collectively earned more than $11 million in reward
points by purchasing through their Capricorn Account.
The latest program development now allows all
eligible purchases to earn 1.5 reward points for every
$1 members spend using their Capricorn Account, an
increase of 50 percent on the previous reward.
Capricorn supports members in many ways through
additional products and services including its very own
travel agency, access to financial support through
Capricorn Society Financial Services, business
protection products through Capricorn Mutual and
Capricorn Insurance Services.
To join, applicants must meet set criteria before
becoming a member.
