Introduction to working with The World of Good
We welcome wholesale enquiries. The vast majority of our business is done in collaboration with our stockists and we are always pleased to hear from anyone who would like to sell our products in their physical or online stores.
If you have a physical store and would like to stock any of our products we'd be delighted to hear from you. We have no minimum orders so you can try a range and see how it goes. We'll provide you with as much support as we can in the form of marketing materials and information about new products and we will do our best to respond to any specific requests for help.
We have only one important proviso before we can start to do business together and that is to make sure that, where we represent the brand exclusively in Australia, there are no obvious geographical conflicts with other resellers that have established themselves in a similar market (eco, toy, pharmacy, gift, department, etc) and are regular purchasers of our brands - see below for more information.
If you'd like to become a reseller please call Crecy on 0401 924 070 or send her a message here.
If you have an online store and are keen to make available products from The World of Good you can either stock products as if you were a physical store or we operate a drop shipment process where you can take orders for our products and we will deliver them directly to your customers on your behalf.
Drop shipping is simple and effective, and has worked very well for many of our online store customers who have wanted to get started but have not been immediately ready to commit to stocking. We provide marketing materials, hi-res product photo galleries, industry information, pricing and other confidential information through a private reseller resource area and you present the products for sale on your web site. You take orders from your customers and place equivalent orders with us. We bill you at the online store price for the product and the cost of delivery, and we ship directly to your customer. If you wish, we can include your invoices and any other marketing materials from your company in the shipment. You simply have to send us the materials in advance either by e-mail or regular post and to give us any special instructions. Your customers will receive their orders as if they were coming from you. We do whatever we can to make selling our products on your site as easy as possible. No double shipping, no requirement for you to carry stock.
Please note that if, in addition to fulfilling sales from your online store, you also sell from your home as a physical store or at local markets, the same proviso for geographical exclusivity exists. Please see the section below.
If you'd like to give our products a try please call Crecy on 0401 924 070 or send her a message here.
We accept payment by MasterCard or Visa (as well as direct deposit) and we do not charge any fee for the use of a credit or debit card. Depending on your credit card billing date the timing of the use of a credit card can provide you with up to 45 days of credit.
We do not offer credit accounts.
As a general rule any customer that is purchasing approximately $500 of an exclusive brand monthly is deemed to be making significant enough commitment to the brand to have earned geographic exclusivity in their shop category. Of course this cannot ever be an exact science and, in the end, we make a judgement about what constitutes a conflict. In a major metro area we would normally differentiate by suburb. Elsewhere we work out whether your premises are a reasonable distance from anyone in the same category already selling the same products and who are purchasing on a regular basis. This provides a level of certainty to stores that have already made a commitment to marketing and investing in the area. Once you have been approved as a reseller in a particular area/category you can expect the same courtesy to be extended to you.
In the event that you become a reseller for a brand and the minimum monthly purchase requirements to retain geographic exclusivity are not met then we will, if approached by another reseller in your area, make the products available to them and geographic exclusivity will lapse. The exclusivity will not automatically transfer to the new reseller if you wish to continue selling the products. Only if you have decided not to continue selling the products will we consider transferring the exclusivity to the new reseller. Again, this provides a level of certainty about commitment to the brand.
Finally, this policy is always subject to change based on the requirements of our own suppliers. In the unlikely event that any of the brands require us contractually to sell on a non-exclusive basis we will be obliged to modify this local arrangement.
If you have any special requirements, and you think that we might be able to help, please don't hesitate to ask. We look forward to working with you.
