WHOLESALE TERMS OF TRADE – AL.IVE BODY PTY LTD
These are the Terms of Trade between al.ive body® Pty Ltd (ABN 37 635 011 960 - referred to below as al.ive body®) and any stockist, being any individual, business or company placing an order with al.ive body® for the wholesale purchase of any product for resale. These Terms of Trade apply to all stockists.
Please take few minutes to read the below information about the legal terms and conditions that apply to you as a stockist. If you don't agree to these terms and conditions, please contact us before placing an order. These Terms of Trade may be modified periodically and apply to all stockists.
Here at al.ive body®, we value uniqueness and limit the number of stockists we sell to within a specific postcode.
We have set our exclusivity to a distance of 2km radius between stockists within their store category. Some postcodes can span over a large distance and we don’t want retailers to miss out on the opportunity to sell our products. And more importantly, we don’t want their customers to miss out on buying our gorgeous products either. Store categories are defined under - Homewares, Florist, Beauty & Other (Bookstores, Fashion Boutiques & Cafes).
Postcode exclusivity is given once a retailer has ordered their first purchase. Due to the excitement and interest in our product range, we will be offering a “first in, first served” policy. However, if requested, we will place the subsequent retailer’s (in order of application) on a waiting list and if minimum requirements are not met by the retailer who holds the exclusivity (within a 6 month period), we will offer the next retailer on the waiting list the chance to become a stockist within that postcode radius.
The retailer who gains exclusivity of the postcode, enters into that status acknowledging that there may be previous al.ive body® retailers also in that postcode. In order to maintain exclusivity, $3000 (ex gst) must be spent on the al.ive body® wholesale hand and body range every 6 months. If the minimum spend is not maintained, the retailer will not retain their postcode exclusivity, and the retailer on the top of the waiting list will then be offered exclusivity.
A condition of exclusivity is to range all products within the al.ive body® range. In the event al.ive body® releases a new product range, and the existing retailer who holds product exclusivity for the hand and body range chooses not to stock the new range, postcode exclusivity will be opened up to another retailer.
Terms and Conditions of Postcode Exclusivity
This policy is always subject to change. We reserve the right to revise our definition of postcode exclusivity based on the growth of our brand and increased levels of demand at any time. However, we will ensure that all of our retailers who hold postcode exclusivity are made aware of any changes.
Postcode exclusivity is allocated automatically once your trade application has been approved. Please note that we cannot accept a trade application where an exclusivity agreement is already in place with another retailer.
On the trade application being denied for this reason, we will offer the retailer the chance to be added to our stockist waiting list and will inform the retailer immediately if their postcode becomes available.
If at any time you decide to no longer stock our products, we would greatly appreciate it if you could let us know so that we can offer our products to the next retailer on the waiting list.
A minimum spend of $250 applies to all orders.
