A wholesale application is no longer required for purchasing in bulk - although it will be for additional data-feed services - so you can apply now or later for data-feeds as you prefer.
We are keen to find good strategic partners suitable for wholesale accounts; where you can add incremental sales, marketing and demand for our products and brands.
There is a significant infrastructure in place with Authentic Produce for cost efficient fulfilment and order management, so we would be pleased to share the benefits of that with you.
We are looking for retailers that have an existing customer base, through their own website and email list, shops and surgeries - so please read carefully and complete the application form below.
Once approved we will change your website login to a wholesale account and the pricing will automatically reflect your new cost prices.
Of course, many of our suppliers and our own warehouses are located outside of the EU so we strongly recommend you check the relevant import duty costs here: https://dutycalculator.com or here: https://www.ups.com/globaladvisor
Plus, you must check the laws and regulations of your country for the licencing, labelling and any other legal issues for import or resale.
Once you have considered that, over 90% of our wholesale customers then choose to dropship using our infrastructure to send goods directly to their customers. This is often because personal import allowances and restrictions are much more straightforward when posting to individuals, than they are for companies moving large quantities of goods across borders with courier paperwork requirements.
This form is designed to help us set-up your wholesale account with Authentic Produce Limited.
We offer bulk-buy wholesale pricing and direct-to-customer dropshipping.
Online resellers will find the dropshipping service yields more margin than adding an additional step in the chain to customers by stocking and delivering themselves.
High-street resellers should bear in mind the cost to customers for postage and packaging when buying 1 item online in their shelf-pricing, to be comparable to customer's online comparisons.
Wholesale accounts are for trade customers only, including; high-street shops, health & beauty practitioners, surgeries and independent websites.
Authentic Produce always offer the best possible wholesale pricing on all lines permanently, so please don't embarrass staff by requesting further discounts or concessions.
The margins in all online product sales are tighter nowadays due to abundant competition, so you will need to make sure your costings are comprehensive and accurate for your ongoing resale success.
There is no fixed percentage discount for wholesale pricing, instead the margin from our cost prices to the online selling price is split equally between ourselves and yourselves. You should check all lines individually because margins will vary depending on supply, demand, and economies-of-scale for each product's manufacture.
Buyers will be responsible for all carriage costs and import duties, so should factor these into their costs. We do not add any handling fees onto postage or courier costs.
You may have been attracted to HealthMonthly.co.uk by our low prices, which can in-part be due to the majority of our goods originating from outside the EU, but if you wish to commercially import into the EU, for stocking and resale, you will have to consider all costs and restrictions for your country.
Wholesale orders are usually dispatched within 7 to 12 working days from ordering, however we aim to dispatch quicker where possible. Orders are not dispatched until full payment has been received. We will advise dispatch date and expected arrival date once the order has been placed.
Where a product is over-stocked we may buy back surplus stock subject to negotiation and acceptable return condition.
If we agree to accept a return for pristine stock there will be a 15% restock fee. The cost of returning stock to us must be paid for by yourselves. We may on occasions ask you to return goods to one of our other warehouses and when we do so we will waive the restock fee. The credit for accepted returns once received and checked are then allocated to your account to be used against future orders.

Personal customer imports for small items do not incur import or sales tax, however commercial imports do, so you will find that the margin for wholesale pricing may not always be sufficient for your business strategy if you intend to sell at or below the prices offered to personal customers online.
We offer free shipping on wholesale orders delivered to the UK. Shipping costs to non-UK destinations will be quoted prior to sending through your proforma invoice. All orders will be cost-optimised for your destination once submitted to pass on all available discounts.
Wholesale orders are subject to a minimum order value of £200 (excluding taxes and shipping). We re-evaluate accounts from time-to-time to ensure they continue to be legitimate trade accounts reselling within our licence agreements and terms & conditions.
Thank you for your enquiry and we look forward to doing business with you.
