Re:      Inducement Letter


         Each of the undersigned, Priority Fulfillment Services, Inc., a
Delaware corporation ("PFS"), and PFSweb, Inc., a Delaware corporation
("PFSweb"), directly or indirectly manages certain business operations and other
affairs of Supplies Distributors, Inc. ("Borrower"). Capitalized terms used but
not otherwise defined in this letter agreement, are defined in that certain Loan
and Security Agreement, dated as of March 29, 2002, by and between Lender and
Borrower (as amended from time to time, the "Loan Agreement").

         PFS and PFSweb will each derive substantial direct or indirect benefit
from the extension of credit to Borrower pursuant to the Loan Agreement.

         In order to induce the Lender to enter into the Loan Agreement and the
Financing Agreements and to consummate the transactions contemplated thereby,
and in consideration therefor, the parties hereto agree as follows:

         1. If at any time the aggregate amount of Revolving Loans shall exceed
the amounts available to Borrower in accordance with Section 2.1 of the Loan
Agreement (the amount of any such excess, the "Overadvance Amount") then PFS
agrees that within two (2) Business Days from such time, PFS shall make an
infusion of capital into Borrower, in an amount not less than the Overadvance
Amount, in the form of equity or indebtedness that shall be, in either case,
subject to and subordinate in right of payment to the right of Lender to receive
the prior final payment and satisfaction in full of the Obligations in
accordance with the terms of that certain Notes Payable Subordination Agreement
dated as of the date hereof by PFS in favor of Lender or on such other terms and
conditions as may be satisfactory to Lender in its sole discretion.

         2. PFSweb shall deliver to Lender as soon as available and in any event
(i) within ninety (90) days after the end of each fiscal year of PFSweb the Form
10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for such fiscal year;
(ii) within forty-five (45) days after the end of each fiscal quarter of PFSweb,
the Form 10-Q Quarterly Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
for such quarter; (iii) within five (5) days after the same are sent, copies of
all financial statements and reports which PFSweb sends to its stockholders, and
(iv) within five (5) days after the same are filed, copies of all financial
statements and reports which PFSweb may make to, or file with, the Securities
and Exchange Commission or any successor or analogous governmental authority. In
the event PFSweb is no longer a public company, PFSweb shall deliver to Lender
the same financial statements, notices and such other documentation relating to
PFSweb as are required to be delivered or reported by Borrower to Lender
pursuant to Section 9.6 of the Loan Agreement.

Inducement Letter


         In the event of a breach of this letter agreement by PFS or PFSweb,
Lender may proceed to protect and enforce its rights by an action at law, a suit
in equity or other appropriate proceeding whether for the specific performance
of this agreement or for an injunction against a violation of any of the terms
and conditions of this letter agreement. The provisions of this letter agreement
shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding the commencement of any
case under Title 11 of the United States Code by or against Borrower or any of
its property.

         This letter agreement has been executed, delivered and accepted at and
shall be deemed to have been made in Dallas, Texas, and shall be interpreted and
the rights and obligations of the parties under this letter agreement shall be
governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the internal laws
of the State of Texas. This letter agreement shall be binding upon and inure to
the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors, transferees
and assigns. Neither this letter agreement nor any of the terms hereof may be
amended, waived, discharged or terminated unless such amendment, waiver,
discharge or termination is in writing signed by each of the parties hereto.
This letter agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties hereto in
any number of separate counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all
of which shall constitute but one agreement.
