Getting Started


No, there is no fee to be a reseller for CWR Wholesale Distribution.
CWR offers three types of accounts: Credit Card, COD, and Net Terms.  All accounts require a Business License, Personal Guarantee Form, ST-3 or ST-3NR Form, and sales venue information.

Credit Card: This is the quickest and easiest account to establish. This account requires your company credit card on file to be charged at the time of purchase.
COD: Blind drop shipping is not an available option with this type of account.  A blank bank release form will be provided; we require bank details such as name of the bank, account number, date and signature to authorize further review of your information.
Net Terms: This type of account is an open account typically processed for Net -15 terms. At the time an application is submitted, it is requested that 2 to 3 trade references be provided along with a bank reference as mentioned above. Please supply all contact details for all trade and bank references so the process can be completed as quickly as possible.

ST-3 is required for all businesses located and registered in New Jersey.
ST-3NR is required for all non residential businesses located and registered outside of New Jersey.

Please follow the link below to locate the name of the certificate CWR requires for each state: https://acf.cwrdistribution.com/statedocs.php
For credit card terms, the process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours to activate for purchase.  COD and Net accounts take more time to process as we rely on the response of your references.  Since COD and Net Term accounts may take longer, we can always offer credit card terms in the interim so orders can still be fulfilled without delay.
