Choosing the Right Store for Your Needs!
A bulk order is a single payment and single ship arrangement. For Bulk Orders, a deposit of 50% of the total order is due before production can begin. Payment in full, to include any additional fees, is due upon completion of order and prior to shipment. Prices and fees are subject to change.
A team store allows your team to purchase individually and offers shipping options to suit your needs. These include bulk shipments to one location, pre-sorted shipments to one location or direct shipments to members. Pricing for these services varies by type.
A deposit of $200 is required for all new team stores. The deposit may be used to pay for design charges, processing fees or fees assessed for items below minimum on the order. Any remaining balance of the deposit minus fees, will be credited back to the original credit card used for the deposit. Prices and fees are subject to change.
TEAM STORE PRICING
The Customer may request the store unit price be higher or lower than the standard or contract price subject to Pactimo approval.
- If Customer lists a garment for a price greater than the standard or contract price, the difference can be used to offset an amount due on the order or rebated to the customer after the order is complete.
- If Customer lists a garment for a price less than the standard or contract price, the customer agrees to pay the balance due prior to shipment of the order.
- Team Stores will incur a fee equaling 2.9% of the refund amount on orders that are for profit (priced higher than agreed price). This is deducted only from the profit portion (we absorb the 2.9% up to that point) at time of rebate payment.
TEAM STORE SHIPPING AND HANDLING
- Team Stores bulk ship to one location – Shipping and handling fee 2.5% of the merchandise total for each individual order.
- Team Stores bulk ship to one location with individual sort – Shipping and handling fee $4 plus 2.5% of the merchandise total for each individual order.
