Once I register, how soon can I see wholesale prices and start shopping?
It normally takes 24-48 business hours. Because we will have to manually review and approve each applicant and their information.
What's The Minimum Order?
We believe that boutiques should have to right to choose what sizes to stock and how many of each size to stock for their customers, therefore, we do not have a minimum order per style! However, due to we are a b2b platform, we do impose a minimum order of $100 per order.
There is a $30.00 Shipping fee for orders lower than $300.
Are the prices on your site wholesale or retail?
All prices shown in A & O International's are wholesale prices. Our prices are designed to give customers a top notch in offering best quality products and service while still generating good turn over on your investment. You can only see these prices once you finish registration and log in. All prices are subject to change without prior notice.
Why is seller's permit required?
A & O International is a wholesale website serving all boutiques or b2b alike. We do not sell products to consumers, only to resellers. Products must be purchased for resale or other business purposes. To register an account, you must have a seller's permit from your local tax/equalization board. Seller's Permit is widely required state by state to engage in business and retail transactions that would otherwise subject to sales tax provision. In addition, we need all resellers from California to provide resale certificate as proof that the property was purchased for resale, per ca b.o.e. Regulation 1668 and 1669. Further reading on resale certificate from ca board of equalization.
