  • Introduction


    At Bags of Love, we personalise our high-quality products, clothing and fabrics just for you. Everything is done by hand in our West London facility, and we keep our whole team here, from design and development to marketing, production and customer services. This makes us pretty unique, as it means that we can offer a fast turnaround on our entire range, and it cuts out any middlemen.

    Everything is made to order, one at a time. This allows us to reduce waste, and make sure that everything is made to the same outstanding quality we’re proud of. It also means that we specialise in short print runs which are perfect if you want to order in bulk, but not by the tens of thousands.

    You can sign up for a wholesale account by filling in a simple webform. Bags of Love wholesale accounts provide great discounts and money saving opportunities which are great for small advertising agencies, someone wanting to sell their own merchandise and even schools and colleges.

  • Eligibility


    Businesses or groups with their own designs, logos or content that they are ready to upload and create fantastic products with are eligible to apply for a wholesale account.

    If you want to get the best pricing, and have somewhere to sell your stock, be it from a home or office, or in a shop either online or a market, trade show or even with a store, you can sign up for a wholesale account.

    We have built our way up from a small business, and as such we are proud to be here for other small businesses too. You don’t need to have a few hundred employees to open a wholesale account with us, simply great designs and somewhere to sell them.

    Please note that you will only be able to have either a wholesale account or a student account. Signing up for the other will cancel the one that you already have.

  • What are Wholesale Credits?

    In addition to the standard discount tiers, you will also receive Wholesale Credits when your orders meet certain criteria.

    If you make multiple purchases of the same item within 30 days and the total quantity of those orders amount to the next highest discount tier this product is eligible for, you will be credited the difference.

    This monetary value will be automatically credited to your account, and then automatically applied to future wholesale orders placed within 30 days of each other in addition to your standard discount.

    Note that the total credit amount applied cannot be more than 50% of the order value. So if your wholesale credits add up to more than 50% of the cost of your order, the remaining credit will be visible in your account and is applicable to your next order. Wholesale Credits can be claimed within 30 days, after which they will expire. The expiry date will be visible in the Wholesale Tab of your account.

    For example, if you place an order for 10 cushions (Product ID 30), you will get a 20% discount as standard.

    If you place another order for 10 cushions (Product ID 30) within 30 days, you will get a 20% discount, and since both order quantities add up to 20 pieces total, you will also receive a Wholesale Credit of 5%. This is because both orders together would elevate to the second discount tier of 25%. This credit will automatically be applied to your next order.

    Please note, that as for our discount tiers, the maximum wholesale discounts for some products are capped 20% or 30% respectively. In this case your credit would only increase up to the maximum wholesale discount amount for said product.

  • Benefits


    The discounts that you qualify for with a wholesale account are tiered. These are based on the number and the type of finished products that you order, but the best part is that they don’t have to be the same product. You can mix and match the products from our clothing and homeware section to build your order, and we will apply the discount on the combined total.

    · 1 - 10 products: up to 20% discount

    · 11 - 20 products: up to 25% discount

    · 21 - 49 products: up to 30% discount

    · 50+ products: up to 40% discount

    Note that some products are capped at a maximum of 20% and 30% respectively.

    Additionally, you will receive Wholesale Credits, which will accumulate if you make multiple orders of the same item within 30 days, and the total quantity reaches the next discount tier.

    Fabric printing is discounted at 20% off our standard pricing, which already includes automatic quantity discounts.

    Please bear in mind as we hand make everything to order, larger orders may have slightly increased production times. If you have a deadline, we would advise chatting to our lovely custom service team before placing your order.

    You can find a full list of all our products and their respective wholesale discount tiers in the 'Discounts' section of your account.

  • Exclusions


    Items such as large furniture and suitcases do not count towards the above tiers, they are discounted at a flat rate due to the cost of shipping. You’ll receive 20% discount on an order of single and multiple items.

    There are a few products that don’t qualify towards the wholesale discounts, including swatch packs and test prints and items under £15. 

  • Common Queries

    Common Queries

    How do I sign up to the discount?

    Once, you have signed up for the wholesale account, you don’t need to do anything else other than ensure that you are logged in. The wholesale discounts will automatically apply to all eligible products that you create when you’re logged in to a wholesale account.

    Do you offer drop-shipping or integrate with other sites?

    At the moment, we can fulfil your orders and either send them to you, or directly to your customer if you prefer. To do that all you need to do is enter their address as the shipping address at the checkout. We currently integrate with Shopify, and we are constantly working on improving our services in this space.

    Do I need to be an expert with a long history to sign up?

    You don’t. We started off much smaller than we are now back in 2002, and it was growth that brought us here. That’s why we are proud to support businesses from all levels.
