ARHAUS TRADE PROGRAM TERMS & CONDITIONS
Membership in the Arhaus Trade Program (“ATP”) is contingent upon receipt of a completed application and approved credentials, which include a copy of a completed IRS W-9 listing your Federal Tax Identification Number (EIN or Social Security Number). The ATP is intended for design and real estate professionals. Continued membership in the ATP is contingent upon remaining a licensed business. Approved members will receive an email within 2 business days, conﬁrming membership and beneﬁts. No company-wide or group memberships will be granted. If you have your own employees, each designer on your staff must individually apply for membership to the ATP to receive individual commission.
Membership is a privilege and is not transferable. The membership may only be used at a participating Arhaus store for purchases for you as the member or by your clients-and only if the membership is current at time of purchase. Membership is not valid for gift card purchases.
Misuse of your membership will result in membership termination. "Misuse" includes, without limitation: unauthorized use of Arhaus trademarks or proprietary information; false or disparaging representations concerning Arhaus products, services, or employees; transfer of membership; allowing others to use your membership ID number; and submitting false, expired, or misleading information in connection with a membership application or client referral.
You can earn 7% commission on annual delivered sales volume of up to $49,999.00, and 10% commission on annual delivered sales volume over $50,000.00. The ATP program year runs from January-December, and resets annually. Commission checks are paid four times per year and are based on delivered sales for each quarter. Commissions shall not be due unless and until the merchandise purchased has been delivered, accepted, and paid for by the referred client. The ATP does not apply toward purchases made at the loft clearance locations.
Commission payments are made on delivered sales as follows: delivered sales from January 1 - March 31 are paid by the end of April; delivered sales from April 1 - June 30 are paid by the end of July; delivered sales from July 1 - September 30 are paid by the end of October; and delivered sales from October 1 - December 31 are paid by the end of January the following year. Any returns, exchanges or price adjustments processed after commissions have been paid will be deducted from the following quarter’s commissions. If required signed sales documentation is not presented within 90 days from the end of a quarter, commissions will be forfeited. Commissions will be paid via check and sent to the address provided in your application unless you provide an updated address. You will receive an IRS 1099 annually, for any earnings received during a membership year.
If an order has been placed before an ID number has been assigned to you, it will only be added to your sales if the order was placed within 30 days of your application, and the order is unscheduled. It is your responsibility to ensure the Design Consultant is aware of your trade membership. If your client does not notify their Design Consultant that you are a trade member, your ID may not be entered. It is your responsibility to alert a Design Consultant if a client is coming in without you. Your client need not be present to make a purchase, but you will be required to sign all necessary sale documentation.
If you request a tax exemption, you must provide Arhaus with a resale certificate for each state where items are being delivered. A resale certificate must be provided with each order.
In no event will Arhaus be liable for any loss of proﬁts, loss of use, incidental, consequential, indirect, or special damages arising out of your membership in the ATP.
You agree to these Terms & Conditions and attest that you are not afﬁliated with Arhaus, its parent or afﬁliates, and nothing herein shall be construed to create in any manner whatsoever any employer-employee, principal-agent, partnership, or joint venture relationship between you and Arhaus, or any of your agents, subcontractors, or employees.
This Agreement shall be construed and controlled by the laws of the State of Ohio. Any litigation arising out of this Agreement shall take place in Cleveland, Ohio, and all parties irrevocably consent to jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Ohio. Arhaus’ liability for any action under this Agreement shall be limited to $25,000.00 costs and fees included.
Arhaus may alter or cancel the program or change these Terms & Conditions from time to time, without notice. Arhaus will post changes to the ATP at arhaus.com/trade-services. Any changed Terms & Conditions become effective immediately upon being posted, and your continued use of your membership constitutes your agreement to the then-current Terms & Conditions. Arhaus reserves the right to make all membership determinations at its sole and absolute discretion.
By participating in this program, you agree to make required disclosures, if any, to your clients and/or brokers.
