Besides meeting our minimum order quantity requirement for wholesale orders, which is originally $1000 and then $500 after the first purchase, here are some of the major differences between wholesale and retail orders:
-No gift package or certificates will be included in the wholesale orders since most of our store owners have their own packages and store names.
-All of our wholesale orders will be sent directly from China. And it will take at least seven days (and longer during holidays seasons) after your payment has cleared, for your package to be prepared and shipped.
-You will be paying the actual cost for the International postage, such as UPS, Fedex or EMS for your shipping, depending upon the weight for the items that you order. It usually starts at about $30, which is the reason why we have minimum order requirement to make your shipping cost effective.
-For our USA customers, we accept credit card, check/money order, Paypal, Google Checkout, West Union, and bank transfers. If you pay for the order by credit card or Paypal, you’ll also need to pay a 3% transaction fee, which is not included in wholesale price. If you pay for the order by bank wire or West Union, you will deduct the wire transfer fee, which you will pay for the bank, at about $50.
-For non-USA customers, we accept credit card, Paypal, West Union and bank transfers. If you pay for the order by credit card or Paypal, you will also need to pay a 4% transaction fee, which is not included in wholesale price.
