- Wholesale FAQs
Welcome to the new and improved website of WhereBoutiqueShop! Please Note: For security purposes, we did NOT transfer anyone’s information to our new site, so returning customers will need to re-register on our new site.
Once I register, how soon can I see wholesale prices and start shopping?
It normally takes 24-48 business hours. Because we will have to manually review and approve each applicant, including our returning customers who have already registered on the old whereboutiqueshop website. You may email us at [email protected] if you need speedy approval. Our hours are 9:30am-5pm PST, Mon-Fri.
Are the prices on your site wholesale or retail?
All prices shown in whereboutiqueshop.com are wholesale prices. Our prices are designed to give customers a top notch in offering best quality products and service while still generating good return on your investment. You can only see these prices once you finish registration and log in. All prices are subject to change without prior notice.
Why is seller's permit required?
Whereboutiqueshop.com is a wholesale website serving all boutiques alike. We do not sell products to consumers, only to resellers. Products must be purchased for resale or other business purposes. To register an account, you must have a seller's permit from your local tax/equalization board. Seller's Permit is widely required state by state to engage in business and retail transactions that would otherwise subject to sales tax provision. In addition, we need all resellers from California to provide resale certificate as proof that the property was purchased for resale, per ca b.o.e. Regulation 1668 and 1669. Further reading on resale certificate from ca board of equalization.
