For approval, we require details from you including your business or trading name, email contact, ABN, address, website and/or social media account.

MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY (MOQ)
We require a minimum wholesale quantity of 20 sets and recommend ordering in increments of 5 sets per product SKU.
Wholesale orders falling below the required MOQ will not have the discounted wholesale price applied at checkout. We reserve the right to update MOQ requirements without notice. In the event that a stockist does not maintain an active status by ordering at least once per quarter, the account may be closed for inactivity.
RECOMMENDED RESALE PRICE (RRP)
We encourage stockists to adhere to resale prices within 10% of our officially listed retail price. This helps maintain stronger brand equity.
