Answers:

  1. What does the wholesale price to public mean?

    We are a beads wholesale distributor to business and the public. We import beads and beading supplies directly from the manufacturers. We then break up case lots to distribute wholesale to retail customers. We will keep our doors open to the public and allow anyone to purchase our quality products at affordable prices. We do offer extra larger discounts for bulk purchasers.

  2. Is there a minimum purchase requirement?

    Yes, We do have a minimum purchase requirement due to the labor cost. The minimum order is $50, and a "$10 Low Order Fee" will be applied to any order less than $50.

  3. Will I be charged sales tax?

    Unless specified on the product page, the price shown in the our website is the price per strand, or per piece for pendant.

  7. What's the length of the beads?

    The normal length of beads are 16 inches. For some beads like crystal, the length may be different, and we will specify that on the product page.

  8. Does the product picture reflect the real color of the bead?

    To dispaly the true color is always a complicate technical issue for all websites. The website photographer need to tune the color quality on server side, while the customers also need to calibrate their monitors. One important measure is to set your monitor's color temperature to 6500K ( normal Daylight color temperature ) in order to see the correct color. Most of monitor's default color temperature are 9300k, which will bring a little "blue" flavor for the pure white background. Although it works great for many software, like Microsoft Office, you have to switch to 6500k if you want to see the close-to-true color.
