How to start buying on Faire?

Faire is an online wholesale platform that allows you to find exceptional new products for your stores.

It puts you directly in touch with new brands which will be at the origin of your best sellers . If not, she takes these products again, no questions asked:

  • The first order you place with each brand can be returned free of charge within 60 days from the order date. Make even sends a prepaid shipping label to return the items!

  • Net 60 day payment terms are available for all your orders (for eligible retailers).

To register as a retailer, create an account here .

It is important to indicate correct information during registration. The more information you provide at registration, the less time you should have to wait to receive orders.

How do returns work?

Make an offer free returns on first order that you pass by any brand , so you can shop new ranges online with confidence.

These free returns are only possible for your first order with a new brand; any new order from this same brand cannot be returned free of charge.

If your account has a net 60 day payment term, Faire will not charge you for the products you wish to return. If you pay on shipping, all returns will be refunded directly to your original payment method.

Noticed :

  • Once you submit your return request, Faire will email you a prepaid shipping label with which you can return the items to Faire.
  • Faire only offers free returns on the first order you place with each brand. So, if you order items from the same range again, they believe that both you and your customers are satisfied with the products.
  • Personalized products cannot be returned and returned items must be unused and in perfect condition.
  • Faire does not accept returns of testers or samples.
  • Noticed : Shipping costs to your store are not refundable. Return shipping costs are covered by Faire. Once the return request is processed, you will receive the shipping label within 72 hours.

Returned items are stored at our premises and then resold to other Faire retailers via the platform. Their warehouse team carefully checks all returns to ensure the items are in perfect condition.

Once the return has been thoroughly inspected and approved for resale, Faire will compile a list of products in our category Collections on sale . They offer a discount on these items because retailers cannot select them like a direct order on the platform.

How can I pay for my orders?

When placing an order on Faire, you must link a credit card or bank account. They cannot accept any other payment method (prepaid cards, checks, etc.).

Noticed : At this time, only US-based retailers can link their bank account to pay for their order.

The date you are charged for an order may vary depending on your account:

  • 60 days net

If you can benefit from the net 60 days, you will only be charged 60 days after your order. Spending limits apply. Faire will automatically charge your default payment method 60 days after the date of your purchase, but if you wish, you can log into your account and pay your outstanding invoices early in the "Invoices" tab.

If you would like to have a larger credit limit or request payment terms, please click on the “Account” drop-down menu and complete the request by clicking on “Increase my limit” or “Request payment terms”.

  • Cash on shipping

For orders that pay for shipping, your payment is due when the product is shipped from the brand. Your default payment method will be automatically charged once the order is in transit. Please be aware that a hold may be placed on your card or bank account prior to shipping. This hold will disappear when the order is shipped or within 7 days if the order takes longer to be processed.

  • For initial orders, the commission rate is 25%. Faire charges a one-time referral fee of 10% when Faire allows you to land a new customer on Faire. This rate only applies to a new customer's first order. A rate of 15% will be applied to future restockings.

The commission allows Faire to offer the following services and benefits to their brands:

  • Merchant verification: When a new merchant places an order with you, Faire verifies their reseller and payment information to ensure they meet your sales standards.
  • Logistics: Faire covers all shipping, handling and returns costs.
  • Payment: Making guarantees payments. This way, you will never be a victim of payment defaults.
  • The 60-day payment deadline: Do you always pay in advance , even when you offer a 60-day payment term to merchants with a physical store who place an order with you on Faire.
  • A complete wholesale platform: the commission that Faire charges allows them to invest in new tools (analytics, inventory tracking and marketing, for example) that will help you grow and manage your wholesale business.

How is the remuneration done?

Although Faire offers payment terms to our retailers, they always pay you in advance so that you can continue to source quality materials to maintain your business. You can choose to receive your payment the day after shipping or 30 days net. It is important to know that overnight payments are subject to a 3% processing fee.

When you set up your account, you must provide your banking details. Funds will appear in your bank account within one to two business days of payment processing.

How does shipping work?

You will be able to indicate your usual shipping times during the onboarding process. Your brand page will let retailers know your average lead times, but Faire also asks you to enter an expected ship date once orders are placed.
