Products

MasonJars.com has a variety of Sellers. A Seller is defined as a business or person offering products or services for sale on MasonJars.com. Lead times vary based on each Seller's wholesale terms and policies.

Upon submission of your order, an order confirmation will be emailed to you. This is to confirm receipt of your order only and does not indicate an “in stock” status. Orders are processed in the order received, date and time stamped.

Pricing

Wholesale pricing is a percentage off of the advertised SRP (SRP-Suggested Retail Price) on our wholesale website, MasonJars.com (you must be accepted as a wholesaler and be signed-in to view the wholesale pricing). Pricing and discounts are determined by the Seller for their products. The wholesale discounted pricing is displayed online for each product. Pricing may fluctuate without notice, but confirmed order pricing will always be honored.

Unless otherwise approved during the application process all wholesale orders must be placed through the MasonJars.com website. This is done to ensure accuracy of inventory so that items are clearly reflected as available or out of stock. Orders will not be taken over the telephone or from emails. Additionally, your order history will be available for your reference. You may create your account with your personal/company information.  We do not store any private credit card or payment information and are PCI compliant.

All orders must be placed in quantities listed in order to receive wholesale pricing. You will be automatically enrolled in our Wholesale Partner email Newsletter which notifies you of any promotions, Seller updates, and new products.

All customers residing outside the US will be responsible for all duties, export fees, import fees, and taxes that may be imposed by the US or their respective country. These fees will be handled by direct billing by the carrier involved. Failure to pay these fees will result in a charge to the credit card used for payment of said duties, fees, and taxes with a USD $20.00 surcharge fee.

U.S. retailers are encouraged to use the “Suggested Retail Price” and must comply with the Minimum Advertised Price as set forth by each individual Seller.  Large variances in pricing or undercutting the market on a continual basis will result in the retailer losing their ability to be a reseller of MasonJars.com merchandise.

Unless otherwise agreed upon all shipping charges will be added to orders. Shipping promotions advertised on the MasonJars.com website or elsewhere apply to retail sales only and do not apply to wholesale orders. Any Wholesale promotions will be communicated via Wholesale newsletter.

Terms

All orders will be charged in full at the time of the order being placed. Please be aware that shipping cost can fluctuate depending on the size of the order without notice. Although we try to get as close as possible it is just an estimate. Wholesaler will be notified of changes in the total before shipping.

MasonJars.com accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or PayPal for wholesale purchases. Requests for special payment terms such as net 30 payment and/or pay by check require credit references. Please request so on the application and include a detailed report with bank and vendor references. Certain restrictions may apply. 

When issued an invoice for an order, you agree to make payment in accordance with the Seller’s policies. Non-payment or late payment may result in the suspension or termination of your account and subject you to collection mechanisms or other consequences.

For your protection, we do not keep or store credit card information on file; however, once you create an online account some of your information can be saved through our secure server. Please use our automated system for your security as it offers a protected credit card account mechanism for your convenience.

Should a balance be due on goods for any reason, it will be required to be paid within 30 days. A 1.5% finance charge per month will be added to any unpaid balance after 41 days from the date of invoice. No orders will be accepted by accounts in poor standing. Accounts past due in excess of 180 days will have wholesale privileges revoked.

Shipping

All ordered goods are shipped via best method (USPS, UPS Ground, FedEx, or DHL) and freight will be charged at the time of shipment, based on location, size, and weight. Orders may be split and shipped separately to provide you with items as soon as possible. Shipping costs are estimated and will be added to your total invoice for each shipment unless otherwise requested and approved by the Seller. If there is a variance from the time of invoicing to shipping, the Seller will contact the Wholesaler for approval. Should any damage or loss occur, it is the receivers’ responsibility to alert the shipper so that the Seller may submit a claim on your behalf. You agree to allow Sellers and MasonJars.com to contact you via phone, email, or via a conversation on MasonJars.com regarding orders you place.

Choice of Law; Dispute Resolution

This Agreement is governed by the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act, applicable U.S. federal law, and Pennsylvania state law, without reference to any applicable conflict of laws rules, the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, or any local laws implementing the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods in any jurisdiction where the Products are sold. Any dispute arising out of this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent MMI Intellectual Property, 900 State Street, Suite 008, Erie, PA 16501. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. Arbitration conducted in person will be in Erie County, Pennsylvania or at another mutually agreed location; however, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based on written submissions. You and we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you and we each waive any right to a jury trial. You and we also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
