Your first initial qualifying order will function to add you as a reseller and from that point on you will receive the dealership discounts.

 

Pricing:

Funny Bug Bees offers two pricing tiers for our dealers as follows:

Tier 1 - 10% off our retail prices and free shipping on qualified orders over $150.00. The minimum initial order of $800 or a total of $1200 over the life of your account is required before you qualify for this tier. This is to prevent abuse of regular non-reseller customers abusing the reseller system.

Tier 2 - up-to-30% off retail prices with no free shipping. This is the best option over the long term of your distributorship, as it will result in the most profit. The minimum initial order of $1800 or $3000 in orders over the life of your account is required to qualify for this tier.

By default, Funny Bug will put you into the 30% group on your first qualifying purchase unless you specify we should put you into the 10% group via email.

 

Shipping:

Funny Bug Bees will cover all shipping on qualified items if you are in the 10% off retail pricing group.

Funny Bug Bees will NOT cover shipping on any items if you are in the up-to-30% off pricing group.

What items do not qualify for free shipping in any group?

  • Assembled hive boxes
  • Assembled Frames
  • Assembled Fat Bee Man feeders
  • assembled NUCs
  • Assembled Hive Kits

If you order these items and are in the 10% off with free shipping group, then all of your order will ship for free except these items. You will be contacted with a shipping quote for the above-listed items.

Funny Bug Bees reserves the right to hold shipment of ordered products in the case of outstanding account balances or unpaid shipping fees.
