This Wholesale Agreement (hereinafter, the “Agreement”), is made and entered into by and between Chilled Tech, LLC (hereinafter “Wholesaler”), and “Retailer” (hereinafter, “Retailer”). Retailer wishes to sell and promote the products offered by the Wholesaler in their physical and/or online store.
Wholesaler and Retailer Responsibilities: Retailer must maintain a current business license certificate (or state equivalent) on file and provide a copy along with Tax ID, to Wholesaler. Retailer must have either a functioning e-commerce website that is owned by the entity applying for the wholesale account and/or a brick & mortar store proof (e.g., a picture and physical address). Wholesaler will deliver inventory to the Retailer, as agreed. Wholesaler is not involved in the actual transaction between the Retailer and the end customer. Retailer will be responsible for providing exemplary customer service to all actual and potential customers, including taking reasonable measures to respond to all customer inquiries. Wholesaler is not the agent of either the Retailer or the end customer.
Representation of Product: Wholesaler retains all rights to all images of products provided and retains the right to prohibit the use of any and all images provided. Retailer may not use any of the images contained within the provided photos for any other purpose other than to gain sales. Retailer may not use any images provided in any other medium than in or on the specified website, advertising materials or store without prior written consent of Wholesaler. Retailer may not alter (e.g., crop, change background colors, add text) provided photos other than to size appropriately for website and marketing materials. Retailer must describe the product in the appropriate category and may not represent the product in other categories or for other uses, without prior authorization from Wholesaler.
Product Modifications: Retailer cannot promote, advertise or sell any modified or altered Wholesaler’s products or combine with or into any package, assembly or derivative product not expressly authorized in writing by Wholesaler.

Web Commerce: Wholesaler strictly prohibits re-selling of all products on 3rd party sites (e.g. Amazon.com, Ebay.com, Walmart.com etc.). No products purchased from Wholesaler shall be resold by Retailer through any location other than Retailer owned URL or brick and mortar store unless prior written consent has been obtained from Wholesaler. If Retailer resells via prohibited 3rd party, wholesaler and Retailer relationship will be terminated.
Billing: At this time, the Wholesaler is not extending credit terms. All orders must be accompanied by payment in full. You may order inventory from Wholesaler using ACH or Wire Transfer, Check & Money Order, Credit Card or PayPal payment. Due to the discounted nature of wholesale pricing, Credit Card and Paypal payments will include a 3.5% surcharge to cover the transaction fees.

Retailer further agrees that Wholesaler is not obligated to determine whether a sales tax applies and is not responsible to collect, report or remit any tax information arising from any wholesale transaction.
MAP – Minimum Advertised Price: MAP pricing is established by Wholesaler and may be adjusted by Wholesaler at its sole discretion. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (“MSRP”) and Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) for Wholesaler’s products are as set forth in each product’s current Wholesale Price List. This MAP policy applies to all advertisements of Wholesaler’s products in any and all media, including, but not limited to, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, email newsletters, email solicitations, internet or similar electronic media, internet auction sites, television, radio, public signage and in-store advertising.
Discounts: The maximum allowable discount that can be applied to MAP via coupon code or any other method is 5% off current MAP published on our website.
Retailer is required to advertise Wholesaler’s products at full retail price as to not compete with Wholesaler’s online, wholesale and distributor pricing. (See your wholesale account store for retail pricing). Retailer can, at any time, advertise promotional discounts with Wholesaler’s products. A promotional discount is described as a temporary percentage or amount subtracted from the full retail price, not to exceed the minimum advertised price (MAP), should be advertised as such and cannot exceed a promotional period of greater than 30 days. Any Retailer that does not display promotional discounts as described above or if Wholesaler determines that the Retailer is competing in a manner that creates a conflict for any reason, Wholesaler can terminate this Wholesale Agreement immediately.
