Other companies are highly secretive of their wholesale pricing.
Wholesale pricing is simply 30% off the listed prices, shipping excluded. That's 30% off the price you see on the product page:
You always pay shipping on wholesale. There is no free shipping for wholesale accounts.
You can not use coupons, so ignore any pricing you see like this:
Wholesale pricing is offered to qualified customers who are capable of placing an order without hand-holding. We like to think of ourselves as a self-service vending machine for coffee supplies, and we're always happy to answer any questions you have.
How to Qualify for Wholesale
- All customers begin by placing their first order online, going through the regular checkout process
- Reach out to us after your order has been delivered to have us activate your wholesale account
- Your order must ship to a commercial address. Residential addresses do not qualify for wholesale
This process is a quality check, which ensures that you are capable of ordering the volumes required, and are capable of entering billing and shipping information correctly.
Alternatively, if you're currently spending $500+/month on coffee from a competing supplier, we can shortcut the process. Reach out to us to get started.
Why aren't wholesale discounts higher?
Some companies make up obviously fake list prices so that they can offer discounts that look like big numbers. We don't do this. We start with an aggressively priced product that's accessible to everyone, regardless of whether they're a business or consumer.
This is simply a matter of respect for your intelligence.
There's nothing inherently special about running a "business". What is special about businesses, is their ability to purchase large volumes. This is where economies of scale come in and the ratio of overhead to raw-product-cost allows us to reduce costs.
It doesn't matter to us whether you're a little old lady ordering $300/month, or a shop that orders $300/month - both deserve the same price based on merit.
Many of our long-term customers are regular consumers who order higher volumes that some of our wholesale customers, and deserve the same pricing.
Why can't I ship to a residential address?
Wholesale orders should generally be large enough to be multi-piece shipments, which are only feasible through couriers such as Canpar, UPS and FedEx. CanadaPost charges per-package.
Additionally, couriers charge residential delivery fees.
Finally, most couriers will deliver during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm), which is contradictory to most commercial businesses. We are able to accommodate restricted hours, such as if you're closed Mondays, or if you don't open until 11:00 am.
