West Paw Terms & Conditions
- Definition: Retail Account is for purchase of product for sale directly to end-consumers located in the country(ies) in which you have one or more brick-and-mortar retail locations or (for those retailers with no brick-and-mortar stores) where your headquarters are located. Use of your Retail Account to purchase and sell product for subsequent resale is prohibited without express prior authorization from West Paw. Please contact our team at [email protected] if this is unclear or if you have questions regarding this policy.
- Approval of Web Sites: Retailers may sell products direct to end-consumers on the Retailer’s hosted web site(s) identified on their wholesale application. Other hosted websites may be approved in writing from time to time by West Paw.
- Minimum wholesale order is $50.00.
- Returns: Must be pre-authorized and will incur a 10% restocking fee. Please contact our team at [email protected].
- Pricing, product design and availability are subject to change without notice.
- Agreement: Placement of your order indicates that you and your company agree to all terms and conditions.
- Terms: 30 days from ship date with credit approval. Please contact our team at [email protected] for a credit application. Accounts are delinquent 5 days after due date. Payments made after Net 30 days are subject to a charge of 1.5% per month, 18% per annum. Accounts past 20 days will lose net terms.
- Credit Cards: We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express when processed at the time of shipment without a processing fee. Please be aware that while we don't charge your card until the time of shipment, we do request authorization from the financial institution prior to preparing your order. This is known as an "authorization" or "transaction hold." This ensures your order will ship as quickly and efficiently as possible. The time required to remove an authorization is determined by the financial institution that issues the card and often ranges between 3 to 7 days. Credit card payments made after the time of shipment will incur a 3% processing fee. This is no more than fees charged to West Paw by the credit card companies.
- COD (Cash on Delivery) is not accepted.
- In the unlikely event that a payment is returned for insufficient funds (NSF), that payment will automatically be forwarded to a third party collection agency.
- FOB Bozeman, MT with a minimum shipping and handling charge.
- Drop Ship: Additional $5.00 charge will be applied. $50 minimum wholesale order for each drop ship order. If your company drop ships more than $500 per year or stocks West Paw products in your brick and mortar store, the drop ship minimum may be lowered at West Paw’s discretion.
- Termination: You or we may suspend or terminate your account or your use of the West Paw’s retailer website at any time for any reason.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue doing business with any retailer that advertises any product covered by our Advertising Policy in a manner inconsistent with the Policy.
