Wholesale Access to Beads and Beading Supplies

15,000+ Items In-Stock at Wholesale Prices

Beads N Crystals offers wholesale purchasing options to eligible Australian and New Zealand based businesses and organisations. A true wholesale transaction is between an importer or supplier (such as Beads N Crystals) and an entity that is either a commercial consumer or not the end user of the products or services in the transaction.

Who is eligible for wholesale?

If you wish to purchase for the purpose of eventual resale or use within a business, organisation or other body corporate, or if you fit into any of the following categories, you probably qualify as a Wholesale client:

  • Companies
  • Retail Stores
  • Online Retailers
  • Jewellery Designers
  • Craft Class Organisers
  • Market Stall Operators
  • Government Departments
  • Lapidary Clubs & Members
  • Manufacturing Wholesalers
  • Textile, Jewellery or Art Students
  • Hospitals & Special Care Providers
  • Schools, Colleges, Education Facilities
  • Athletes such as Gymnasts, Performers
  • Charity Organisations & Community Groups
  • Any Entity falling under the legal definition of Body Corporate

How are Wholesale prices calculated?

Wholesale prices are generally calculated as a percentage off our regular retail prices. These percentages vary depending on the product category and can also depend on the quantity of any given item purchased. As an official distributor and agent for a number of international brands, we can offer additional discounts on pre-orders, bulk purchases and custom productions.

Are there minimum purchase requirements?

A minimum order value of $100 after all discounts and before any applicable postage costs applies to the first purchase. After this, our incredibly low minimum spend of just $50 per order (GST inclusive and excluding postage) will apply. We only require one purchase at wholesale every year to keep your wholesale access open until the end of the following year.

How can I apply for wholesale access?

Applications can be made in-store with a qualifying purchase. Please bring your ABN and any supporting proof of eligibility like market receipts, supplier invoices or other documents we can use to prove your business.

To apply for wholesale access online, please register as a new customer (or log in) and purchase our Wholesale Deposit for $100. Select the Free Postage option at checkout to avoid that cost. This $100 deposit will be used as a payment for your first order. In the order notes at checkout, please enter all of the following details:

  • * Business or Trading Name~
  • * ABN or ACN
  • * Full Contact Name
  • * Contact Phone Number
  • * Physical Address (if different from your postal address)
  • * Main Business Function (ie Making jewellery for sale in shopping centres; or Running workshops at aged care facility)

* Indicates compulsory information for a valid wholesale account.
~Business or Trading Name – A registered name is not essential. If you do not have a registered business name, please provide the name you will use on products made for sale, or the name of your web store etc. The name you give us does not need to be a legal entity name, trademarked or registered. We cannot accept a name exactly the same as the contact’s name unless containing another word. For example, “Jane Smith Designs”. Exceptions apply to registered business names the same as the contact’s name, or students and performers.

Proof of Business Eligibility

If your business name or trading name is attached to your ABN, or you are currently GST registered, you’re all set. Otherwise, if your ABN is registered as a sole trader, and does not display your business or trading name, and is not GST registered, we will need proof of resale. Such proof can include your website, etsy store with sales, market receipts, invoices for supply of your goods to a retail store, or other forms of proof that will prove you are in business of selling your goods. Simply having previously purchased elsewhere isn’t proof that you are in business, so we’re unable to accept purchase receipts from another wholesale company as proof of trade.

What happens next?

Once your Wholesale Access is approved, we will supply full terms & conditions along with our wholesale pricing structure. You’ll have access to view and peruse our wholesale prices online and purchase either online or in-store. Your first purchase of $100 or more to consume the Wholesale Deposit must be made within 12 months of the initial wholesale application deposit payment. No refund or credit is possible on any deposit not consumed within 12 months.

A retail gift voucher for the full value, or a refund of the paid deposit less any merchant fees will be provided only where an account application is rejected for any reason such as (but not limited to) incomplete details, false ABN, or ineligibility due to the terms and conditions on this page. We offer a cooling off period of 28 days from the date of account approval. Where an applicant changes their mind and no longer wishes to make a wholesale purchase, a refund of the deposit less any merchant fees will be provided via the same method in which it was paid.

By legal definition, Wholesale is a Business-to-Business transaction. It is the Wholesale clients responsibility to notify Beads N Crystals if circumstances change. By using Wholesale access, you confirm that you comply with the requirements of a B-2-B transaction (Wholesale) and indemnify Alexandra Bay Pty Ltd against any repercussions resulting from action if you do not actually comply at the time of each access or purchase.

Every year we check ABN status and close accounts where an ABN is no longer active. If this happens and you are able to re-activate your ABN, we can reactivate the wholesale account.

How to Check if you have Wholesale Access

To check if your wholesale account is active, simply log in using your registered email address (use Lost Your Password if you don’t remember or never set a password) and view our Wholesale Deposit online. If the price of the wholesale deposit is $0.01, you’re seeing wholesale prices and you’re ready to order. If the price is $100, then you’re not seeing wholesale prices.

Reasons you may not see wholesale prices vary. Possibly you haven’t registered for wholesale yet, your application is still in progress, the account closed due to non-use or an ABN issue, you may be using a different email address to the one on your wholesale account, or we may be running a site upgrade which can occasionally cause some features to be unavailable for a short time.

In any case, please call or email us with your name and business details so we can investigate and get you back online ASAP.
