We are pleased to offer free domestic standard shipping on all wholesale (AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND) within Australia and New Zealand over the purchase amount of $500.00. Any orders under this amount will incur a postage and handling fee which is calculated based on the parcel size and quantity. This is applied to your order invoice. Additional fees also will apply to express postage requests.
Domestic orders will be shipped out within 1-3 days of payment notification. You will receive tracking information via email. Please allow at least 4-10 days for your order to reach you (if in Australia or New Zealand).

If you wish to sell from a further associated outlet (online or retail) in the same business name as your initial application, you must have this approved by The Golden Month.
Selling from additional outlets without our knowledge and approval will result in the suspension of cancellation of your wholesale account.
CANCELLATION OF WHOLESALE ORDERS
We take a great deal of care when selecting and packaging our items for travel. Because of this, after payment has been made and processing has begun, we do not allow for cancellations of wholesale orders. Any such attempt to cancel an order may result in a forfeiture of all monies paid.
If you have not paid your invoice within the prescribed 14-day period, The Golden reserves the right to cancel your order and make your desired stock available to other customers.

a change from bricks and mortar to online (however, please let us know of this change and we will more often than not greatly appreciate and accepted this exciting change to your store)
repeated instances of unpaid or overdue invoices
a wholesale order/re-order not being placed within 12 months.
Cancelled wholesale accounts will result in your store's name being removed from the our website. If cancelled, you may also be required to re-apply for a wholesale account.
