CLOSURES – FULL, PARTIAL, WEATHER DELAYS, HOLIDAYS, HOUSEKEEPING
During certain times of the year, we regularly go through Closures where you should expect that processing times will be extended. Please plan your orders accordingly and take into consideration the following: Some days we will be
Partially Closed which means we will work half days to take orders, run production as scheduled, answer emails, and of course get out shipments out the door. You should expect that processing times will be extended by the number of days during this period.
On Closed dates we will be closed. This means that we will still take orders, but your emails will be answered in two to three days and no shipments will go out on this day.
Holiday Rush Shipping Season starts in October – please place your orders early! This is when we can encounter serious Weather Delays and any Carrier Delays getting ingredients in to make your products as well as getting them shipped out the door to you. **REMEMBER** Historically, Carrier Shipping prices always increase in October!!**
Each quarter we conduct our Housekeeping Audits as a time where we take time to get reorganized, clear out the old and make room for the new! (Note: Be sure to check for new items during this time too). While we are not closed during this time, we are still very busy and you will want to plan your orders accordingly at the end of March, June, September and December.
Space here at Texas Wholesale Natural Beauty Supplies is at a premium. We need all available space for working, properly storing ingredients and finished products in a temperature controlled, sanitary and safe environment.
Any product orders that have been paid for but are on hold for shipping payment is subject to a $25/month Storage Fee if shipping is not paid for within 72 hours (3 days) regardless of day of week, holiday etc. The Storage Fee will automatically be attached to the shipping invoice after the third day. Until all invoices are paid in full, there will be no further shipping of products or delivery of other services.
As you are aware as supply chains are stretched around the world including the supply of packaging (bottles, jars and closures) can lead to shortages. This means that you may receive bulk products in different containers than what you may be used to for instance -- instead of a one gallon size you may receive your product in two half gallon sizes.
As for Fast Track Private Label™ (FTPL™) customers and Ready To Label (RTL) Pre Filled/Pre Packaged orders, we are proud to say that during this pandemic and through the global shortages, we have not had to make any changes to containers. However, if forces out of our control prevail and we are unable to send matching colors and sizes of your choice in each order, we will notify you asap.
PRICE INCREASES – As announced, please expect price changes beginning January 2022. This price increase will be across the board and include FTPL, RTL, Bulk products as well as services. In order to compete with higher pricing while continuing to support all partners in the best way possible, please note that as part of our new pricing structure the following changes for:

PAYMENT PLANS - FAST TRACK PRIVATE LABEL™ (FTPL) & READY TO LABEL (RTL) PRE-PACK ITEMS
Currently, we do offer a Flexible Payment Plan Program for Fast Track Private Label™ Customers. This is a very popular convenient and affordable way for indie brand owners to finance their start up a new biz from scratch and bundle in formulating, design, websites, and other services, etc.
We are now offering financial payment plans for Ready To Label Pre-Packaged items as well. Minimum order quantity of 7 gallons of single product apply, with credit card approval on file.
3 DAYS GRACE PERIOD
In order to fulfill the needs of all FTPL and Ready To Label Customers, we are requiring that all accounts that are on a Texas WNBS (FTPL or RTL) Payment Plan Program be up to date. Currently a Three (3) Day Grace Period applies (Central Standard Time, including weekends, holidays etc.).
In order to keep this Grace Period in place we will automatically assess a $50 REINSTATEMENT fee for accounts on the 4th day Central Standard Time the account is past due. The $50 Reinstatement Fee must be paid immediately to continue to be in good standing in the FTPL program and must be paid before placing any future orders or having any current orders shipped.
INVOICES & STATEMENT COPIES
Good business practices include keeping up with your orders which most can be found online if you placed your order directly on the website. While some orders are special and require billing and invoicing, we ask that you please be sure to keep track of your invoices and statements as we continue to work on making this information available to you when you visit our site online or sent to you via Email.
If, however, you do require a copy of an invoice or order, please email us at TexasWNBS@gmail.com and note in the subject line “ORDER COPY REQUEST” along with as much information from the order or invoice including (exact) invoice amount, date, and items you are looking for on the statement.
Please note that pulling this information is time consuming --an Administrative Fee of $5/order -invoice statement will apply and invoiced to you before any copies are issued. Please allow us one week to send us a copy of your order or invoice from which you paid for items in question. Again, this document is for one order in which you paid for items at a specific time period and typically does not cover multiple order. If you require copies of multiple orders, please advise this in your email and we will handle accordingly.
