For a personal care retailer, especially a startup, opening a Bare Escentuals account and selling their products can mean the difference between offering a known brand to customers versus offering unknown brands that don't carry the same weight, or possess the same quality. The ability to maneuver through simple, little-known procedures allows you to gain access to a trusted brand that can carry sales or supplement existing sales. Bolster your product line by becoming a Bare Escentuals retailer and jump-starting your personal care business.
Things You'll Need
- Your retail sales tax number
- Employer identification number EIN
- Retail store location mailing address
Visit Bare Escentuals website (see "Resources") and click the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page.
Phone Bare Escentuals' customer service department at 888-795-4747. When connected to a representative, ask to speak to the person in charge of setting up corporate accounts.
Ask the corporate account rep to fax or email you the Bare Escentuals retailer application. Provide the account manager your mailing address or e-mail address, so she can send you the wholesale catalog that contains retail prices and required bulk-quantity orders.
Complete the retailer application, making sure to include your industry references and a credit card number Bare Escentuals can bill for each purchase. You will also need your retail sales tax number, provided to you by your state's department of revenue. Finally, you will need your IRS-issued employer identification number, or EIN, that differentiates your business from an individual.
