Wholesale Accounts FAQ
Do you offer wholesale accounts?
Yes, we do! We require a paper copy of your state resale license for our files before your purchase. You can scan or email it.
NOTE: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon do not collect sales tax, so if you live in any of those states then we do NOT require a resale license from you. We do require some documentation that you are in business selling jewelry to set up a wholesale account.
How do I see Wholesale prices?
To see wholesale pricing you must get the wholesale code. Before creating a wholesale account everything you see is retail prices and policies.
What is the difference between Wholesale and Retail accounts?
Wholesale customers are in business selling jewelry. They have registered with their state as a wholesale business and are able to purchase materials at wholesale pricing and without paying sales tax on them.
The sales tax is paid later by a retail customer and passed to the State through the business they purchase from, which may or may not be the business that purchases from us.
Wholesale customers must meet a $250 order minimum for all orders, and retail customers do not have a minimum.
To qualify as a wholesale business, you must fill in your state resale license number when setting up your account. We also need a physical copy of your state resale license for our files.
To see wholesale pricing you must first contact us to set up wholesale account. Before creating a wholesale account everything you see is retail prices and policies.
What is a State Resale License?
A state resale license is issued by the state in which you do business and registers you as a wholesale business with your state tax agency. This permit is called different things in different states. For example, the California license is called a Seller’s Permit issued by the State Board of Equalization. In New York, it’s called a Certificate of Authority issued by the Department of Taxation and Finance.
A Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) is not sufficient for setting up a wholesale account. We require the resale permit number issued by your State tax agency. If you live in a state that does not collect sales tax, like Alaska or Oregon, we will accept your city business license. For international customers, the number of the business license you have in your country is sufficient.
Even if a wholesale customer is only selling their finished jewelry wholesale (and not retail, so therefore is not charging or collecting sales tax), we still require a wholesale customer to have resale license to make wholesale purchases.
For California wholesale customers, we need a signed copy of the Resale Certificate form in our office for wholesale accounts.

Is there a discounted price for wholesale customers?
Yes. Wholesale prices are discounted from retail pricing. Wholesale customers must provide a copy of their state resale permit and must meet a $250 order minimum per order.
To see wholesale pricing, you must email us to create a wholesale account. Before creating a wholesale account everything you see is retail prices and policies.
Why do you have a $250 wholesale minimum per order? Can you waive this minimum?
Wholesale accounts are for customers that are in business making and selling jewelry. Our wholesale prices are based on processing orders of $250 or more. If we were to accept orders under $250, we would have to raise our wholesale prices.
Do you extend terms?
Yes, we do extend terms (net 10, net 30, etc.). After your first order you must send three credit references complete with contact name, resale license, address and phone number. Your references must provide information about how long you have been in business with them.
