FINCHBERRY WHOLESALE POLICIES
RETURN POLICY: FinchBerry will accept returns within 5 days of order delivery. There is a 15% restocking charge for all returned orders.
Please note that our products are offered at wholesale cost to retailers with a valid sales permit ID for the purpose of resale only. Generally, our wholesale products are priced 50% below our MSRP. Due to the immense savings, we have certain criteria that must be met in order to open a wholesale account:
You must complete a wholesale account application, providing your EIN, and Sales & Use Tax ID.
Your store must meet the standards of the FinchBerry Soapery brand and not dilute the image we promise to uphold for our wholesale family.
Accounts will be reviewed annually. We reserves the right to cancel an account if FinchBerry Soapery’s goods are not being well maintained, stocked in suitable temperatures, displayed well, kept in good hygiene (sample/tester products replaced as needed) or if the account changes ownership. Duplication or adulteration of products or packaging or falsely representing products as your own is strictly prohibited. FinchBerry Soapery does not allow our products to be sold on any type of auction site. Soaps can only be sold at physical location provided to FinchBerry Soapery at the time of order, and soaps must be sold under and by the company whose TAX ID number is on file. Soaps cannot be sold at temporary locations not previously approved by FinchBerry (such as art & craft festivals). FinchBerry soaps can not be sold at consignment shops, second hand stores, or stores that contain previously owned products (without prior approval). We reserve the right to limit or discontinue the selling of our products to parties with sales and distribution strategies not compatible to those of FinchBerry Soapery.
Order Fulfillment: Fulfillment can take up to 3 weeks depending upon stock levels, and therefore all wholesale clients are asked to plan accordingly. If all products in your order are in stock and ready, you should receive your order within 2 weeks unless expedited shipping is selected. Back-ordered items can take up to 5 weeks to arrive. Please specify if you would like items to be sent as they are ready or held until the order is able to be shipped in full. Additional shipping fees may apply.
Shipping & Handling: The shipping charges quoted in your order are based on the total weight of the products chosen via UPS Ground. All orders will have Delivery Confirmation added. Orders shipped via UPS will require mandatory insurance based on the wholesale value of the order. If you would like us to use your shipping account, please include all necessary acct info. Insurance is required on all international orders (when available). If your particular country does not enable the purchase of insurance on your package, FinchBerry Soapery will not be responsible for any loss or damage that may occur. FinchBerry Soapery reserves the right to refuse any order felt to be fraudulent.
Wholesale Payments: Orders must be paid for in full in U.S. currency prior to shipment. At this time, we do not offer payment terms (Net 30, 60, 90, etc). We accept all major credit cards including AMEX, checks (with a 10 day hold for processing), cashier’s checks, and US money orders. Returned checks due to insufficient funds will be charged a $25 fee. Credit Card charges will appear on your statement as FinchBerry Soapery. International orders must be paid by wire transfer or US money order and must arrive in US Currency. Any fees associated with the money transfer must be covered in the amount sent. If you are an international client and need to speak with us about other options, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wholesale Returns & Restocking Fees: We stand behind our products and want to maintain a great relationship with our retailers. Afterall, you’re family. All retail orders come with a 5 day money back guarantee. Items must be in resalable condition. Simply return the merchandise with the original invoice and a note stating your reason for return and we’ll gladly refund your purchase price. Shipping & handling charges are not refundable, and a 15% re-stocking fee will be deducted from the re-fund.
Lost, Incorrect or Damaged Goods: If your merchandise is damaged or incorrect upon arrival, save all contents and packing materials and contact us within 3 business days after its arrival. Shipments that arrive in damaged condition will be replaced only after the damaged merchandise has been returned to FinchBerry Soapery within 10 days of receipt for inspection. Shipments that have been determined to be lost, after thoroughly researching the package through delivery confirmation tracking, will be replaced. For both circumstances, a monetary refund will not be given.
Canceling/Changing Your Order: Due to our size and efficient fulfillment, we move pretty quickly, so we cannot guarantee that your order can be cancelled or altered after it has been placed. You may contact us as soon as possible to see if your order has already started to be processed. In the event that it has not, we will be more than happy to make changes to it within 24 hours.
Display: It is the your responsibility to maintain a clean environment and replace tester products as needed. Failure to maintain a clean display and products can result in termination of your wholesale account.
Minimum Advertised Price Policy (MAP): The MAP policy applies to all FinchBerry Soapery products. Our minimum advertised price for FinchBerry Soapery products is 85% of the Suggested Retail Price (SRP), which is a 15% discount off of SRP. Resellers may offer products on promotion at a lower advertised discount only with written permission from FinchBerry Soapery. The MAP policy may be adjusted by FinchBerry Soapery at its sole discretion. The MAP policy applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual customer within the reseller’s retail location or over the phone. FinchBerry Soapery resellers are free to sell MAP products at any price they choose. This MAP policy does not in any way limit the ability of any dealer to advertise generic phrases such as that they “have the lowest prices” or “will meet or beat any competitor’s prices,” or similar phrases so long as the price advertised or listed is not below the MAP. To protect our resellers from unfair competition and to maintain the brand’s image, FinchBerry Soapery will regularly review all reseller commerce sites and conduct in-depth web searches to ensure consistent adherence to this policy. In cases of violation of this MAP policy, resellers will be allowed 24 hours to bring all advertising into compliance. Warnings and written notices will not be provided. Failure to comply immediately will result in discontinued shipments and possible account termination. FinchBerry Soapery reserves the right to cancel or limit the sale of its products to parties whose sales and distribution strategies are incompatible with those of FinchBerry Soapery.
Territory Limitations: The sale or distribution of FinchBerry Soapery products outside the United States or to a third party other than an end consumer is strictly prohibited unless specifically approved in writing by FinchBerry Soapery. FinchBerry Soapery reserves the right to cancel or limit the sale of its products to parties whose sales and distribution strategies are incompatible with those of FinchBerry Soapery.
Internet Retailer Requirements: Resellers must have privacy and customer service policies, as well as overall business ethics that are compatible with those of FinchBerry Soapery. It is crucial that the FinchBerry Soapery family remain a reputable and trusted brand. All internet resellers must have a web address of their own to sell FinchBerry Soapery products. You may not use a subdirectory of another company’s URL, such as an Amazon.com storefront. Additionally, you cannot sell products through any online auction site such as eBay. FinchBerry Soapery products should be represented as part of a category of like products, and should make up only a portion of the offerings sold online by the web retailer. Once approved, we will send product photography free of charge for use on your website in order to maintain a consistent presentation of the brand. All FinchBerry Soapery material, including text from our website, ads, catalog, and other written documentation, may be used only with the express written consent of FinchBerry Soapery. The presentation of the FinchBerry Soapery line on your site must clearly differentiate from FinchBerry Soapery company websites and must not confuse a “reasonable consumer”. FinchBerry Soapery will review your website prior to setting up an account and reserves the right to refuse sales at its discretion. FinchBerry Soapery will also review your site periodically to ensure ongoing compliance with this policy.
By placing a wholesale order, you are stating that you understand and adhere to all policies set forth by FinchBerry Soapery.
