Order forms are simple documents designed to harvest the particulars of an order. Ideally, they entail just a page or two which can be attached to line sheets to codify all the details you’ll need to fulfill an order.
• Your logo
• Your company contact information
• Date of order
• Purchase order number (if supplied by the buyer)
• Store name
• Buyer’s name
• Buyer’s email + phone number
• Delivery address
• Billing address (if different)
• Estimated ship date
• Resale or tax ID #
• Payment method
• Invoice total
• Order notes
• Buyer signature
For each product:
• Product name
• Item number
• Wholesale price (each)
• Minimum quantity
• Available variants (size, color, fragrance, flavor, etc.)
• Line item total
Order forms are notorious for containing lots of information on an itty bitty form. Your primary focus should be creating an elegantly stylized form which is easy for buyers to navigate. You may visit www.brandboom.com online also to know more about the line sheet tools.
To wholesale contractor not to wholesale contract… that is the question!
I’ve been asked on several occasions for an example of a “wholesale contract” which makers can require a signature upon to confirm the details of the relationship between buyer and seller. I confess that I’m not an advocate of this type of document, for several reasons:
a) Contracts should ideally be tailored and reviewed by a qualified attorney for each application.
b) Every hurdle placed in front of your buyer will decrease the conversion rate from interested buyer to confirmed buyer. Make life as easy on them as possible and you’ll be handsomely rewarded!
c) In my opinion, wholesale contracts are wholly unnecessary affairs.
