Wholesale to the trade

Benjamin's Crafts has been an established wholesaler since 1984. Since then, our wholesale customers range from other bead and craft shops, as well as fashion and jewellery designers and gift shops.

We offer special prices for genuine wholesale customers only. A basis enquiry form can be found at the end of this page.

 Please read this carefully!

 

Wholesale bead prices are special prices and some restrictions apply:

 1. Please set up a normal online account first with all your details and ensure that your business name is included, even if the name is the same as your given name.

 2. Make sure that you read all the information at the end of this page in regards to our trading terms.

 3. Email, mail or fax us with you request for access to our wholesale prices.

 4. You must attach a verifiable copy of your business or ABN registration to your request. We will not respond to request where you quote a number without attached certificate(s). Since everybody these days seems to have an ABN registration in their own name, using an ABN alone will NOT automatically allow you access to wholesale prices. The exception of course is that the ABN is in a business name that is clearly related to the industry.

 If your ABN is in your personal name you will need to provide additional proof. This may be in the form of professionally printed business cards (not from a home computer); advertisements in the Yellow pages, local paper; your internet website or an established Ebay site; perhaps copies of invoices from wholesale suppliers etc.

  

Once you have done all of the above, we will change your account so that by default you will be provided with wholesale prices. Note that your first minimum order must be $150. There are no minimum purchase amounts after your initial order.

 However, for your account to remain active we expect our wholesale customers to purchase above $500 annually with us. All required amounts exclude postal charges.  Accounts with very low purchasing history may be suspended without notice. Re-activation would require the same procedure as a new customer inquiry.

Should the amount spent again fail to reach to required purchase of $500 the account will be suspended until a single purchase of the annual amount has been made.

Note that we do not allow for a third party to make any purchase using your account, this includes friends and relatives. The account and discounts available is offered to you at our discretion and will be withdrawn at any time if we believe it is used in any way that would suggest it is for personal use.

Please be aware that your viewing and purchase history is recorded but not distributed to any other party.
