FAQs

We are strictly a trade only website and do not sell to the general public. This means that in order to purchase with us you must be a registered company and be purchasing stock to resell and not for your personal use. We welcome customers who sell online as well as in retail shops.

We currently offer a no minimum order policy which means that our customers have the flexibility to purchase as few or as many items as they wish. Please note that there is a £5 surcharge for any order placed under £50 excluding VAT. Full details about our no minimum order policy can be found here.

To view our prices you will need to register your details by clicking on the register button which appears top right.

Please fill in the necessary details. Your user name will be your e mail address and you choose your own password. You will be logged in straight away and you will have access to the trade prices.

All prices listed on the website are for one item unless otherwise clearly stated.

The prices on the website do not include VAT. 20% VAT will be added to the order in the shopping basket at checkout stage. If you are in the EU and have a VAT registration number you can add this in the checkout to remove VAT from your basket.

Yes. We offer a collection service at our warehouse via a collection online order. Please tell us that you would like to collect your order in the Additional Notes section of our online basket system. Please click here for directions to our warehouse.

The price that you wish to retail your items at really depends on your market, your overheads and your competition however, the general rule is to multiply the wholesale price excluding VAT by 2.4. For example: If you buy an item for £1.25 + VAT then you would expect to sell that item for £2.99. An item priced at £1.66 could be retailed at £3.99. If you are buying in volume and receiving the quantity discounts then you will be making a greater profit.

Our website is updated continuously. As items sell out they are removed from the site and as new products come into the warehouse they are added to the site so it is worth checking the website regularly to see what is new and back in stock.

We do our best to make sure that items featured on the website are all in stock however, occasionally there are surplus orders of particular items which can sell out before our website is updated. During the checkout process, you will have the option to choose if you wish to be notified of any out of stocks. Our usual process is to send the order with everything we have in stock and only charge you for those items.

We take great pride in our packaging and if you have any damages in your delivery it is important that you contact us within 48 hours (any claims after this will not be credited). Please send an e-mail and if possible an image of the damaged item to:

We are attending the following trade fairs:

  • NEC Autumn Fair from 2nd to the 5th September 2018. Hall 5, Stand K02-L03
  • NEC Spring Fair from 3rd to the 7th February 2019. Hall 4, Stand E40-F41

Although it is something that we are occasionally asked, unfortunately we are unable to offer exclusivity to our customers.

At Something Different we have a large and varied customer base ranging from multiple retail shops to online retailers across the UK, Europe and Worldwide. Paired with our extensive and ever changing collection of products on offer, exclusivity is not something that we are able to offer.

We hope that you will understand our reasons behind our decision and we are hopeful that you can find something in our wide product range to suit your requirements.

If you are interested in discussing possible bespoke designs with our team please contact us at customercare@somethingdifferentwholesale.co.uk Please note, bespoke designs are subject to minimum order quantities.
