How do I place a wholesale order?

Once your account is approved, simply log in to your account and order from our site as normal.

Does Foundation backorder items?

We do not backorder items. We will remove out of stock items from your invoice prior to shipment. Please reorder any short or missing items for your next delivery. We do our best to keep all items in stock, but cannot always predict demand, or our vendors’ ability to produce. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

How do I pay for my wholesale order?

Our standard terms for wholesale accounts are net 15 from day of shipping. You can send us a check in the mail, or request an emailed payment link. At this time, we can’t take payment for wholesale purchases through our website. Credit card payments are by request only, and a 3% processing fee will apply. We will send you an emailed payment link automatically at the time of your payment becoming due. If your account becomes overdue, we reserve the right to withold future shipments until your account is current. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping your account current.
