Wholesale Policies



Placing A Wholesale Order—No Minimum After Initial Order

We require your first order to be for a minimum of $50. We do not require a minimum order on subsequent orders.

To order online, even if you are an existing Starwest customer, please fill out this form or call us at 1-800-800-4372 so that we can create a wholesale web account for you.

If you are shipping your orders to California, you will be charged tax on your orders unless you have filed proof of your tax exemption with us. Sales tax will be charged until receipt of your seller’s permit.

Add-Ons: Once an order is entered it is not possible to change or add to it. Please check your order carefully before completing.

Back Orders: We do not accept back orders. Please reorder out-of-stock items with your next order.

Exports: At this time, we only export to Canada and United States territories.


Holidays

Starwest will be closed on these holidays: New Years Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. You can continue to place your orders with us online, but they will not be processed until the following business day.


Payment Terms

Online orders for wholesale customers must be paid by credit card or sent certified COD, unless other terms have already been established.

Company Checks: New customers may request approval to prepay orders with a company check (without a 10-day hold for check clearance) or to receive COD shipments by submitting the Check Acceptance Form. Please allow 3 to 10 days for processing. Orders must be placed by phone at 1-800-800-4372 if you would like to prepay by check.

Company Credit Terms: Starwest will consider applications for credit only from companies that have been in business more than one year. If you would like to request credit terms, please fill out a Credit Application. For customers that are granted COD or Net payment terms, the following policies apply:
1. No shipments will be made to overdue accounts.
2. Accounts with net terms that habitually pay late will revert to COD.
3. Interest of 1.5% per month (18% per annum) may be charged to overdue accounts.
4. Debtor agrees to pay all attorneys fees, court costs, and collection agency fees necessary for collection in the event that the account comes past due.

PLEASE NOTE: Returned checks are subject to a $20.00 fee.

Quantity Price Breaks

When logged into your wholesale account, you will be able to see all standard wholesale price breaks for each item on the corresponding product page. Pricing for larger quantities is available upon request, please contact us for more information.

Simple Returns & Credits

We not only guarantee the quality of our products, but we also guarantee your satisfaction. If you are not 100% satisfied with your order, be assured that, with your assistance, we will resolve the problem quickly and easily. We will promptly issue a refund, credit, or replacement, whichever you prefer. However, we do not refund special order items or shipping charges. Nevertheless, we will be happy to provide you with a UPS return label to cover any return shipping fees.

To ensure that your returns are handled quickly and effectively, please be prepared to provide the order number, invoice number, and a brief reason for the return. Please follow instructions and requirements listed below:

Please call us at 1-800-800-4372 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday to obtain an RMA number. For your convenience, once a return has been authorized, we will also provide you with a printable UPS return shipping label via email.

3. No returns will be accepted for close-out items.


Order Damages

We go to great lengths to ensure that your order is correct, properly packaged, and well protected. Despite our best efforts, damage sometimes occurs during shipping. We strongly recommend that you always inspect your shipment before signing.
