If you don’t want to pay retail, but won’t likely be purchasing more than a few 5 gallon cases at a time and you’re not necessarily interested in selling the AGGRAND products, a Preferred Customer (PC) account is an option that may prove quite useful to you. 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.
If, down the road, once you’ve seen how well the products perform, you decided you wanted to sell the products or begin purchasing larger volumes, your account status can always be “upgraded” to accommodate this change. So, please do not worry that you’ll be “stuck” in the wrong type of account. It can always be changed later.
If you think this might be something that would fit your needs, keep reading. Check out the options in the section below to be sure that another account option might not be a better fit. If not, I’ll tell you further down this page how to quickly and easily setup a Preferred Customer membership.
Other Account Types MIGHT Be Better for You
If you are interested in possibly purchasing AGGRAND products in larger quantities and/or are considering selling AGGRAND products in some capacity, a Preferred Customer account may not be the best option for you. Below are some brief descriptions of other account types that might better “fit the bill”.
The Dealership Opportunity
An AGGRAND dealership account is somewhat similar to a Preferred Customer account. The pricing structure is the same, and this is an account type that is primarily meant for individuals. However, a dealership account adds commissions and profits to the mix so that you can not only get a cheap price on AGGRAND products, but could also make a good living selling the products in various ways.
Dealers can purchase products at wholesale in order to sell them directly to customers at retail. In this case, they would, obviously, earn retail profit on those sales, but would also earn commissions on their original purchase of the products. A dealership account 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). Customers 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 our Dealership Information page.
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.
More information and an account sign-up request form can be found on the Commercial Account Info page.
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.
Ordering AGGRAND Products With a PC Account
Once you have your Preferred Customer wholesale buying 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. Payment is generally taken by credit card.
Setting Up A Preferred Customer Account
Setup is actually quite simple. Simply click the link below to be taken directly to the AGGRAND corporate website, where you can immediately register online for a six month or one year Preferred Customer Account ($15/$30).
Why Pay for the Account?
Undoubtedly, you will find other AGGRAND dealers online who will choose to pay for your account setup, thereby making it free for you. In most cases, the reason is simple. It’s the only significant benefit they have to offer you over any other AGGRAND dealer. Most of them have little experience with the products and even less experience with agricultural, turf or landscaping applications. Thus, in order to get your business, they offer you a free sign-up.
I’m not offering that because I don’t need to. My dealer network has the most combined experience with the AGGRAND product line of ANY AGGRAND dealer network. If you have questions, we have answers. Tap into our considerable experience in the lawncare, landscaping and agricultural industries to get your questions answered quickly, directly and completely.
I promise you, the $15 that you might save by signing up through another dealer could be one of the most expensive decisions you ever make.
