Taxes For Online Purchases: Effective July 1, 2020 Wholesale Supplies Plus will begin collecting sales tax in every state based on The US Supreme Court ruling that companies are responsible for collecting sales tax even if they are not located in your state. To avoid paying sales tax on materials you buy from us and resell, you must have a tax certificate on file. To update your certificate information, log into your WSP account and click Tax Exemption Form. Customers without a tax certificate on file will be charged sales tax based on the ship to address of the order.

Receiving Your Order:

Order Processing Times: We strive to process all orders as quickly as possible. Approximate processing times are displayed; in business days, and can be found in the banner at the top of the website. Business Day 1 is the business day after your order is placed. Processing times will vary depending on current order volume. If you are in need of faster processing, consider selecting the “Line Jump” at checkout. A line jump will allow your order to skip ahead of others and process a day or two faster than our advertised standard processing times. To help determine when your jumped order will ship, the estimated ship date will display on your screen at checkout. Bulk items that are special ordered cannot be line jumped. Bulk orders with items taken from stock are eligible for line jump processing. Bulk items may take longer to process depending on distribution center availability and manufacturing production times.

Backorders: While we try to avoid backorders, they do happen from time to time. We will ship all backorders as products become available and send out a second shipment confirmation. Items that run out of stock during a special promotion where sale prices are only valid on in stock items will be cancelled rather than backordered. If you have any questions or would like to cancel a backordered item, please email our customer service team via our web Contact Page.

Company Closure Days: We are closed most national holidays as well as various companywide in-service and inventory count days throughout the year. Click HERE to view our planned closure schedule.

Shipping – Contiguous US: We ship using FedEx and USPS to PO Boxes, US Territories and Canada. Domestic orders; within the lower 48, over $25 qualify for Free FedEx Ground Shipping but will incur a flat $8.95 ship fee if subtotal is less than $25. Customer can be responsible for $20/box fee to redirect any package.

Shipping – Off Shore: Due to the complexities involved with these shipments, we have created an offshore policy page Here.

Handling Fee: All orders have a small handling fee of $5.95. This fee covers the cost of packing boxes, packing material, shipping labels and labor to prepare your shipment.

Shipping Transit Times: Once your package leaves our facility the shipping carrier determines the transit times. FedEx transit times vary, depending on your location, time of year and extreme weather and are based on business days.

Order Changes & Damages

Order Changes & Cancellations: We understand that life can change quickly and with that your pending order may require an adjustment. It is our pleasure to help you with your needs. Orders that have not gone to the warehouse for fulfillment may be “added-to” or “canceled” as follows.

If you need to remove or cancel items on a pending order, please contact customer service for assistance at 1-216-503-9361 or via our web Contact Page.

Note: A few types of orders cannot use "add to order" feature. Those include bulk order, orders with expedited shipping, and orders that are already in the warehouse. If our advertised processing times are beyond 6 business days, customers will have up to 5 calendar days to add to their initial order.

Product Rating System / Guidelines

We want you to have easy access to product ratings and reviews. You can submit written ratings and reviews for items you have purchased. We encourage customers to share honest opinions, both favorable and unfavorable so that other customers can make smart buying choices.

Who can create customer reviews?
You must purchase a product before you can rate and review it. We encourage customers to not only look at a product but to actually use it so that they can fully evaluate its performance. We do have rules for submitting reviews and we reserve the right to deny reviews that do not fall within our guidelines.

How to write an awesome review
Be Specific: Your review should focus on the specific product being reviewed and your experience with the product. The best reviews include not only your initial impressions but also how you used the product and the details for those impressions.

Length: Ideally reviews are between 20 and 1,000 words. The ideal length is 100 to 250 words. A rating without comment is not as valuable as a rating with a detailed comment.

Be Honest: We welcome honest product reviews--positive and negative. As long as a rating and review remains specific to the product, does not criticize a competitor, and is written with the clear intent to help others, we will not remove the review because they are critical. We believe all helpful information can inform our customers’ buying decisions.

What's not allowed
We appreciate your time and participation in our product rating and reviews program. We limit customer participation to one review per product and reserve the right to remove reviews that include any of the following:

Objectionable Material:

  • Obscene, confrontational or distasteful content
  • Profanity or spiteful remarks
  • Promotion of illegal conduct
  • Promotion of other businesses or competitors
  • Off topic comments
  • Reviews that do not provide customers with an honest product evaluation

Inappropriate Content:

  • Advertisements, promotional material or repeated posts that excessively make the same point
  • Comments by or on behalf of a person or company with a directly competing product or business
  • Posts intended to advertise a business including yourself, manufacturers or competitors
  • Confrontational feedback to other reviewers
  • Details about availability or alternative ordering locations
  • Feedback about typos or inaccuracies in our website or product description
  • Feedback about customer service or general company policies
  • Content that is intended to harm a person, business or company including product sales
