I am thrilled that you would like to join me as a Canadian IOD Stockist/Retailer! I am very excited to work with you and I will do as much as I can to help with ordering, marketing, workshops etc! As you know the IOD line is AMAZING and Sally & Josie are knocking it out of the park with their creative designs and I know that you will LOVE their new ones! Here are the Terms and Policies for Canadian IOD Stockists/Retailers.
1. ORDER MINIMUMS (* see note at bottom of page)
$500 for opening orders.
$250 for re-orders.
Stockists must maintain a minimum $3000 over a yearly period-this does NOT include GST or shipping. We greatly encourage the use of classes, demos and workshops to build customer awareness and loyalty and we will continue offering support and resources for our stockists/Retailers.
*Please note that our Canadian ordering prices WILL be in Canadian dollars(yahoo!) So no more adding Cad/Us dollar exchange, duties etc!*
2. TERRITORY PROTECTION POLICY
I take into consideration the location of existing stores and the health of the existing store ( i.e. sales volume, product range, education program) when reviewing a new stockist/Retailer applicant. I will handle this at my discretion and on a case by case basis. My purpose is to maintain product availability for our customers and to avoid competition between stockist/Retailer locations. As a Stockist/Retailer myself I understand the importance of territories (within reason) so I will do my best to make sure that as long as you are actively selling I will support you by not saturating your area. My goal is to set you up for success!
I will provide a MAP ( Minimum Advertised Price ) & an MSRP in order to prevent undercutting and maintain a healthy sales model. We will have our own prices sepereate from the USA. In the event the IOD Stockist/Retailer chooses to place the products or goods for sale at a discount, please do NOT go below the MAP, The MAP is a Minimum price used for sales and special events for a short limited time.
The MSRP is what you will set your regular retail prices at. You can choose to set them higher but NOT
4. COMPETING PRODUCT LINES
To maintain an active IOD account, we ask that stockists do not carry competing product lines. This does not mean brands, but rather product lines that compete directly with our product lines, for example, large scale transfers intended for décor, molds intended for décor, large scale stamps intended for décor, erasable liquid chalk.
5. STORE FRONT
To be an authorized Canadian IOD Stockist/Retailer you must have atleast 1 of the following :
