We pride ourselves in trying to be as simple and transparent as we can with our vendors. Below you will find our guidelines to being a vendor.
Just Needing The Price List
Vendor Price List and UPC Code Sheet
Minimum Purchase - Below is the requirement to be categorized as a vendor along with the associated percentage off. The way we handle our vendor discounts is rather simple. Your discount is based upon your largest order with us. Example: The Acme Soap Sudds Co. had an initial order of $250. Thus, they were at 40% off. Then their manager, R. Runner, figured that this was selling like hotcakes and decided to up his next order to $5000. Now he is at the 50% off level for that and any future purchases his company makes no matter the size.
40% - $250 Order
50% - $10,000 Order
Terms Of Payment - Due on Delivery is the typical payment plan desired when we deliver the product to the store in person. If vendor wishes to mail a check it will be Due within 7 days. If product is shipped, then the vendor is required to pay the balance in full within 15 days of receipt of delivery.
Down Payment - Any order over $1000 requires a down payment of 50% unless otherwise authorized by one of the owners.
Past Due - A past Due Charge of 5% or $20 (whichever is greater) will be charged for any bill that is outstanding 30 days after the agreed upon payment term. If the balance has not been paid after 60 days, then the vendor deduction will be rescinded, and the full retail price will be owed. If that bill is not paid within 10 business days the matter will be turned over to our counsel and all legal fees will be added to the outstanding bill. Look it's simple, we get paid for our services just like you do. But things happen, so keep us in the loop and tell us if something has gone sideways. That's all we ask. We value our vendors and will bend over backwards to help. But the one thing we will not put up with is being put off or ignored. That is simply unacceptable.
Private Labeling - Yes we offer this. CLICK HERE to read more
Product Return or Exchange - If a product is not selling then you can send it back and we will give you a in house credit towards your next purchase. (Depending upon the size of the return a restocking fee of 15% may be applied.) We also offer to bring a different product of equal value and swap it out during your next delivery. For example, if Lavender does not sell in your area well but Cherry Almond does, then we will be more than happy to swap out the Lavender products with the cherry products on a one-on-one basis. We want products on your shelves that move and make you money. It is as simple as that. You will need to contact us and set up the exchange beforehand since our delivery drivers don't carry extra product with them.
Pricing - We have a suggested retail price, but you can price the products whatever you want. You know your customers better than we do.
Geo-Tracking - If we notice an uptick in specific product sales in your area, we will contact you and give you the option to start carrying that product. If you do, then we will contact those customers and tell them that you are carrying it now and they should go to you and save on shipping. We are all about driving sales to you as much as we can.
We will be expanding to this page off and on when new questions arise. We strive to be as upfront as possible.
