MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE POLICY (MAP)
The MAP policy serves to protect our reseller family from unfair competition and applies to all Forage products. Our minimum advertised price for Smells Like Books products is 85% of the Suggested Retail Price (SRP), which is a 15% discount off of SRP. Resellers may offer products on promotion at a lower advertised discount only with written permission from Smells Like Books. The MAP policy may be adjusted by Smells Like Books at its sole discretion.
The MAP policy applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual customer within the reseller’s retail location or over the phone. Smells Like Books resellers are free to sell products at any price they choose, but they may not publicly advertise (social media, web site, print ads etc.) prices lower than the MAP price.
ORDER MINIMUMS AND MAXIMUMS
Our wholesale order minimum is $500. Please feel free to mix and match products as you like. We have no minimums per product or per scent.

None of our products may be resold online by third parties, through online auction sites, or at craft shows/festivals, artisan markets, trade-shows, or pop-up markets.
Duplication or adulteration of products or packaging or falsely representing products as your own is strictly prohibited.

Due to glass shortages, we may have to occasionally substitute candle jars for jars of similar design. However, we all candles are poured by net weight and will be filled to the advertised and labeled contents.
To align with our branding, all lotion candles come boxed with package inserts containing information about our company and a discount link for reordering on our website.
Most brick and mortar customers will continue to purchase items directly from you as a matter of convenience. However they may refer friends and family members who do not live in close proximity to your store to our website.
These secondary referrals help fund the cost of our wholesale program. Due to the high cost of our ingredients and the extensive labor involved in wild-crafting botanicals and distilling scents, our wholesale program would not be available without these secondary referrals. It will be considered a violation of our wholesale policies to remove these information cards.
