+ MIN ORDER VALUE £100 + VAT – this can be mixed with any number of any style and colour until you get this total.
+Postage is free, but we may charge a small handling fee
+ You can only sell within the UK due to our contracts with distributors in other countries – unless otherwise agreed in writing.
+ As of 2015 we are not accepting any more sellers on Amazon or eBay but will review this from time to time.
+ We completely understand the multiple platform ecommerce world we all live in. But we do ask that all our resellers use restraint on platforms and that aggressive price undercutting undermines the success of all of us. Our RRP’s can be found on our website + +www.chewigem.co.uk website and exclude postage.
+You must display our name CHEWIGEM against all of our products when selling and include our safety warnings at the point of sale on your selling platform:
++ Warning – not suitable for children under 36 months due to long cord – strangulation hazard ++ Clasp is NOT for chewing (small part choking hazard) if you think your child will chew the clasp, then this product is not suitable.??It is hard to accurately rate how durable they will be due to the huge variance across the spectrum. No two ‘chewers’ are the same. There is a chance our products will not be suitable. Nothing is indestructible and they will damage in time, how quickly is difficult to say, but it will be faster for more aggressive chewers.
Please ensure these are used under adult supervision and removed from use as soon as damage appears.
