It can also be difficult to buy items from suppliers with no existing
relationship.  I.e. it may be easy to buy new computers or supplies, but
difficult to get a GPS receiver from some online shop.
E.g. where I work it is not possible to buy anything from a shop where
creditcard or upfront payment are the only options.
