2. Terms of Wholesale Product Purchase
You must complete the customer application process before placing any orders. You warrant that all information and data provided by you is accurate, complete and up to date. You will promptly notify Ethicool if there is any change to this information or data. You must take responsibility for the safekeeping of your username and password, as you are liable if an unauthorised person uses your username and password.
You place a wholesale order with Ethicool by selecting products and pressing the "buy now" button on the checkout page, using the appropriate discount coupon code to enable dedicated wholesale pricing. You can also order via email submission of a purchase order. Orders by phone are not accepted. Ethicool reserves the right to accept or reject an order for any reason, including without limitation, unavailability of product; an error in the price, image or the product description; or error in your order. Orders are deemed received by Ethicool at the time of successful transmission of the order, and you will thereafter be unable to cancel the order. Orders are deemed accepted by Ethicool upon Ethicool acknowledging such order or failing to reject such order within 14 days. We accept orders from all countries and ship worldwide.
Ethicool uses its best endeavours to ensure products ordered are available for delivery, and in most cases will notify you where a product is unavailable prior to you completing your order. However you acknowledge that in some cases this is not possible and Ethicool may need to reject an order you have placed for a product where Ethicool establishes that it is actually unavailable for delivery. In such cases Ethicool will refund in full all amounts you paid in respect of such unavailable product. Ethicool cannot provide rainchecks for products ordered online, and where permitted by law reserves the right to limit the sale of products to reasonable or normal household quantities.
Minimum and maximum order quantities may also apply to wholesale orders and these will be agreed when establishing dedicated wholesale pricing arrangements.
Wholesale payment terms are 30 days net. Consignment options are available by negotiation.
Payment can be made by bank transfer, bank cheque, PayPal, or all major credit cards.
Variation of Products and Price
Ethicool may vary the prices on this website or its wholesale price lists at any time, and prices are subject to change until you have paid for the products in full. Product availability and product prices may vary between Ethicool's retail stores and those found on this website.

Channel Cannibalisation and Retail Pricing
Ethicool operates an omni-channel business, electing to sell directly to consumers (B2C), as well as to wholesalers, distributors, and other retailers (B2B). Any third party entering into a Wholesale Agreement with Ethicool acknowledges that Ethicool takes no responsibility for any channel cannibalisation that occurs, or appears to have occurred, as a result of Ethicool's omni-channel strategy.
Ethicool's recommended retail prices (RRPs) are publicly displayed on its website and Ethicool accepts no responsibility for, or asserts any control over, any pricing strategies employed by its wholesalers, distributors, or third-party retailers.
Shipping and Dispatch
Wholesale shipping is available worldwide and wholesale shipping charges are not included in wholesale prices.
Shipping prices will vary based on order quantity, method of dispatch, and destination.
To obtain a shipping quote, please contact our wholesale team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
SOR (Sale or Return) options are available and are subject to dedicated SOR agreements.
Any wholesale stock returned to Ethicool, including stock returned under an SOR agreement, must be returned in its original packaging, and Ethicool reserves the right to refuse to refund, or to partially refund, returned stock if there is sufficient evidence that the product has been used or tampered with.
Cancellation or Misconduct
Ethicool retains the right to refuse or cancel a wholesaler, distributor or third party retailer without reason, but especially in cases were evidence exists of Ethicool's brand, product or personnel being misrepresented.
Ethicool holds exclusive copyright to its brand and brand assets, and any Ethicool branding must not be used without prior written approval.
