wholesale policies

You can also view our Wholesale Catalog here.

Order Minimums: For a limited time, place your opening order for only $200! You can also place re-orders for only $200 for a limited time.

Payment: Payment is due at the time of order for all Antique Candle Co.® wholesale purchases. We are now partnering with Faire and Credit Key to offer simple, monthly terms in seconds for your candle purchases!

Party/Ecommerce Sites: Listing Antique Candle Co.® candles on such sites as Ebay, Craiglist, Etsy, or Amazon is strictly prohibited. By accepting these policies, you authorize Antique Candle Co.® to have the right to contact such third party site and remove any listings with Antique Candle Co.® products.

Shipping: Any domestic candle order with a subtotal of $600 or more qualifies for free shipping—YAY! Orders to Canada with a subtotal of $1,200 or more also qualify for free shipping! Orders usually ship within 1 - 3 business days after payment is received. Shipping costs are based on our negotiated UPS and FedEx shipping rates. Local pickup is available in Lafayette, Indiana. Please email wholesale@antiquecandleco.com 2 - 3 business days in advance to schedule a local pickup and to receive the free shipping coupon. 

Returns/Exchanges/Defectives: Returns and exchanges must be in original condition. We accept returns (and exchanges) of unaltered products within 14 business days at the customer's expense with a 10% restocking fee. There is no restocking fee if you’d like to exchange for other candle products, but the customer is responsible for the shipping cost of returned items. Defective candles will be refunded or replaced if reported within 90 days of purchase.

In-Store Tester Discount: A heavy discount is offered for full-size tester candles that will be burned in your store. (50% off wholesale price! A 16 oz Mason Jar tester candle would cost $7.50) For every $200 spent, one full-size Mason Jar candle added to your cart for purchase can be discounted and used as an in-store tester candle. For example, a $1000 order would qualify for five full-size testers at 25% of RRP. To take advantage of these discounts, simply add the desired candles to your cart and use the discount codes below at checkout (make sure to enter these codes in the "Discount Code" section at checkout, NOT the "Order Note" section in your cart):

"200SAMPLE" - for an order over $200

"400SAMPLE" - for an order over $400

"600SAMPLE" - for an order over $600

etc.

Candle Sample Requests: Please email wholesale@antiquecandleco.com with requests for candle samples before making an opening purchase.

Zip Code Exclusivity: Antique Candle Co.® determines exclusivity based on your store's Zip Code location along with other criteria, such as, but not limited to, demographic, target market, purchase history, etc. We use Zip Code Exclusivity as a guide. To remain an "Active Stockist" and maintain Zip Code Exclusivity, we look at seasonal order history.

To keep Active status and Zip Code exclusivity, a store must:
  • Place an opening order within one month of application approval
  • Order once a quarter (every three months) to keep seasonal order history up to date

We reserve the right to move a store from "Active" status to "Inactive" status if they do not meet the requirements for Active status. Inactive accounts do not have a right to zip code exclusivity. If your store is expanding or moving locations out of your registered Zip Code, please let know so we can verify Zip Code availability and update your account!

We reserve the right to have no exclusivity access at any time, especially for those businesses that operate online, through catalog or franchise stores, or host occasional 'pop-ups.' Zip code exclusivity does not apply to stores in Lafayette, Indiana.

Resources: As a wholesale partner, you may use any images, pictures, or text from antiquecandleco.com as part of your marketing strategy. We want to help promote your new candle line to your customers!  Stock photos of our candles, signage, and our most recent catalog can always be found here.

Cancellation: Cancellation of any order before it’s shipped is subject to a 10% restocking fee.

Eligibility: Antique Candle Co.® is a wholesale company and by ordering you certify that you are a business recognized at the federal and state level to make tax-exempt purchases for the purpose of resale. If you are an Indiana retailer, we may require a completed ST-105 form.
