If you are a commercial grower, lawncare/landscape company or other end user who will likely be making purchases of 55 gallons of AGGRAND product or more at a time, chances are this is likely the best account type for you. Commercial accounts are designed for larger volume buyers who will be USING the product in the course of their business.
In other words, if you will be APPLYING the fertilizer to a crop, lawn, garden or other area, and the area you have to cover will require drum, tote or tanker truck quantities of product, you would be classified as a commercial account user in order to get the best wholesale prices on AGGRAND products.
For Some, Other Account Types Might Be Better
If you are NOT an end user of the product, but are only interested in selling the AGGRAND products, then you would not qualify as a Commercial Account and would need to register as a different type.
Retail on the Shelf (ROTS)
ROTS accounts are typically for those situations where you’ll be selling primarily through a storefront of sorts, directly to customers. You would purchase the product at wholesale from the company and resell that product to your customers. You don’t have to purchase in extremely large quantities, although larger volume purchases will qualify for bigger discounts.
For more info about the ROTS Account program, see the Retail on the Shelf Account page of the site.
Dealerships Are a Bit Different
An AGGRAND dealership account will allow you to do the same type of selling as a ROTS account, but it also provides the flexibility of being able to have product drop shipped to customers, set up other accounts and earn commissions and possibly retail profit from their orders (even without TAKING the actual orders or supplying the product directly). Similarly to a ROTS account, you don’t HAVE to purchase in large volumes in order to be a dealer.
Dealers can also sign up other dealers and make commissions on THOSE dealers’ total business sales. And, if you’re ears are pricking up as this “dealership option” is beginning to sound a bit like MLM or Network Marketing, you’re right. It is. So, if that’s not something you’re interested, in ROTS or Commercial Account may be a better option for you.
However, if you’re not necessarily averse to MLM (especially with a company that doesn’t just pay big bonuses for signing people up, but actually focuses on PRODUCT SALES in order to earn commissions), then a dealership might be a good option for you.
You can find more info on your Dealership Information page.
Preferred Customer (PC)
Lastly, if you don’t want to pay retail and won’t likely be purchasing more than a few 5 gallon cases at a time, but you’re not necessarily interested in selling the product, a Preferred Customer account is an option. For a small annual fee ($20/year – or $10 for an initial 6 month trial), you receive a significant discount off of retail pricing (at least 25%). You just can’t sell the product. It can only be for your own use.
You can find more information on our Preferred Customer Info page.
Ordering AGGRAND Products With a Commercial Account
Once you have your account setup, ordering is actually quite easy and very flexible. You may place your order online through the corporate website using your account number. You may place your order by phone through the toll free ordering line. Or, you may place your order by fax or mail.
It’s easiest to pay by credit card, but, credit lines can also be setup if necessary. It can take up to two weeks to get a credit line established as the company checks references. Otherwise, if you don’t need a credit line, your account will generally be setup within a couple days, and you’ll be ready to order by any of the above mentioned methods.
