1.CONDITIONS FOR REGISTRATION AND ACCEPTANCE OF DISTRIBUTORS
Registering as a Distributor at Daphahome is simple with straightforward procedures and regulations: Distributors must meet the financial, experience, and necessary skills requirements to become a distributor of the company.
Distributors can contact the Hotline at 0909309095 for advice on conditions and policies for Distributors.
2. REGULAR PURCHASE DISCOUNT:
Based on the committed quarterly sales volume, Distributors will participate in a discount program on the sales volume exclusively for distributors. When the committed sales volume is achieved, Distributors will enjoy the agreed-upon discount rate from the beginning of the quarter. This DISCOUNT policy is independent and conducted in parallel with other support or business promotion programs from Manufacturers/Distributors for Distributors.
3. PRICING POLICY, PRICE PROTECTION:
3.1 Purchase price:
Based on the purchasing results and other cooperative commitments, Distributors will enjoy the pricing policy for distributor levels accordingly. The pricing policy is designed to ensure competitiveness and maximum profitability for Distributors in the market. In the event that Manufacturers/Distributors reduce the selling price, Distributors are price-protected for the same type of goods with the exact quantity and SKU in the Distributor’s inventory, verified within 30 days from the date of the price reduction notice. In the event that Manufacturers/Distributors increase the selling price, Distributors will be notified at least 45 and up to a maximum of 60 days in advance to adjust the import policy accordingly.
3.2 Customer protection for Distributors:
Distributors are encouraged to expand the market to increase the number of customers and become exclusive major Distributors in planned areas within the system. Distributors are provided with a Distributor code, which Distributors will provide to their customers. When Distributors’ customers contact Distributors directly, the Distributors will request the code. If the customer’s code belongs to a specific distributor, the Distributor will be transferred back to that Distributor by the Distributor. In the case of retail customers contacting Distributors directly, the Distributor will be introduced to the Distributor’s area of residence.
Distributors are protected in new locations for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 6 months by Manufacturers/Distributors throughout the distribution channel.
4. PRINCIPLE CONTRACT AND ACCOUNTS PAYABLE:
4.1 Principle contract:
After both parties sign the principle contract, Distributors will be included in the preferential list of the Distributor and enjoy the policies for distributors provided by the Distributor.
4.2 Accounts payable for purchases:
Distributors must make a 100% payment before delivery. Based on the cooperation results and payment history, Distributors will enjoy better credit and accounts payable policies. In the case where Distributors establish a one-year bank guarantee with an amount depending on the business needs and financial capacity of the distributor, based on that, Distributors will enjoy a credit limit from 40% to 70% with a maximum accounts payable period of 30 days.
