Ready to dive in?!
The Wholesale Program
Wait a minute… we haven’t talked about the program yet!
Before we dive in to your step-by-step instruction guide, we wanted to give you a little bit more information about the program and what you can expect moving forward!
But first, a few housekeeping notes:
1. Order Process: As of February 1st 2018, we ask that you place all of your orders online using your Wholesale Account in our online portal.
2. Wholesale Tiers & Loyalty Program: As a member of our Wholesale Program you now have access to our Loyalty Program, which will help you reach each of the three tiers and levels of discounted pricing within our Wholesale Program listed below. Every member will start in our Bronze Tier.
Upgrade to our Silver Tier: Place 1 order! (We recommend using our Branded Display Kit to increase your chance of success!)
Upgrade to our Gold Tier: Place 10 orders and tag @Waxseals in 10 stylized Instagram photos!

Setting Up Your Account
If you haven’t already received it, you will be receiving an email invitation from our team to set up your Wholesale Account Profile on our Online Wholesale Portal very shortly.
Don’t worry – our team has already done most of the set up, but there are a few last details to confirm before your account is order ready!
Step 1: Activating Your Online Account
Once you’ve received your activation link via email, you’ll be ready to finish setting up your account!
- Click on the activation link in your email
- Add us to your contact list so you receive all order confirmations, eletronic proofs, etc.
- Create a password that is complex, yet easy for you to remember! You will use this login (email + password) to sign in to your Wholesale Account.
- Head to the My Account section (little profile icon in the top right corner of the menu bar) and confirm that all of your details are correct (including your address, phone number and email address).

Step 2: Exploring The Wholesale Shop
Welcome to our Wholesale Shop!
Newly designed and organized for an easier shopping experience, our online Wholesale Shop provides you access to all of the products and service options available as a WaxSeals.com Wholesale Member!
We invite you to take a look around and familiarize yourself with where our products are located – and please send us any questions that come up!
Completing Your Toolkit
Physical Product, Samples & Resources
Now that your online account is set up, you’re technically ready to place your first order.
But….we haven’t even touched on the samples and physical product you’ll need now that you’re offering wax seals to your clients!
Whether you work one-on-one with your clients in-person or have mastered the art of the FaceTime/Skype consultation – physical product is one of the most important elements for successfully offering wax seals to your clients.
Now… we’re still not sure if it’s simply because it’s more fun to buy something if you can touch it and feel it in person, or if most people just don’t know about modern wax seals, but either way – we’ve seen a huge success rate increase in our clients who have physical product to show to their clients.
Branded Display Kit
Includes all of our most popular products used by our Wholesalers to offer wax seals to their clients – all branded with your company logo!
Design & Color Guide
Includes physical samples of all 60 sealing wax colors, loose samples for testing, and our signature adhesive options.
Placing An Order
So you’ve finished setting up your account, you’ve received your physical product, and now you’re ready to place your first order!
Here are the steps:
- Log in to your Online Portal using your email and password from Step 1 (above).
- Select your product + design options.
- Checkout using your choice of payment and shipping speed.
- If your order is custom, we will send you an electronic proof within 1-2 business days for you to approve – and will move on to production (1-3 business days) once your electronic proof approval is received.
- Ordering something like sealing wax or samples? Your order will ship within 1-3 business days!
Well friend, you’re all set!
