Yeah it will bring unnecessary competition that might not be healthy. So it is good not to double cross at all
It ruins the friendship and trust. One concrete example is the unfair transaction encountered by my cousin. She used to hire Company A to supply them Rhums but to her surprise, the other store akways received 1 pack containing 6 Rhums free, so she shifted to another supplier and later the supplier knew the reason from the other store that always receive I pack Rhums. They're cheating.

As the usual thing, having a good relationship with both parties needs to be maintained. At some point, they need to compromise for the changes of prices and the like.

You see, cheating doesn't really help anyone in the long run. Business needs a lot of credibility in the first instance.

Yeah one good idea is that of payment. The suppliers when psid on time will be motivated to always supply without failing.
Having a friendly relationship also helps and we can offer them some water or tea or snacks sometime and all this helps and they may feel us as our friends and that's how we should be so we can ask for help and they will be happy to help

These things do help and with tea and drinks you can make a lot of friends and its how we used to chat and talk about our life and other things and I have seen many that use this as a technique to win more friends and it most of the times help

I am not very good at it and have less patience but I see others that are so good with these methods

Some suppliers can be naturally toxic they also behave rudely without an atom of respect , creating a friendly atmosphere around these type of people might be a bit difficult . the business owners should be patient enough to stomach the supplier's attitude but when it is getting unbearable the business should find an alternative supplier.

By paying them when you promised to do so and even giving them some form of refreshment when they come. It is good to also treat them well
Without having good suppliers to always give us our supply at all times it might be a huge problem. So how can we maintain good relationship with our supporters to enable us get stock all the time?

By paying them on time and treating them properly and having a friendly relationship with them will always help

Payment on time are always welcome to keep such relationship flowing but also one might need to get involved more in how effective the supplies are and how you would prefer your supplier response to you, and be more of the friendly customer to his supplier
