Retailers who purchase products that are eligible for our Buyback Program (all floor-standing displays, or annual re-orders totaling more than $400) can find information here about processing your buyback returns:
Our BUY-BACK GUARANTEE only applies to filled Floor-Standing Displays and the Countertop Displays when total seed orders exceed $400 for the year (including the initial order). Buybacks only apply to individual seed packets (not gift items.) Eligible items will be returned to Seattle Seed Company, and a 50% credit of purchase price will be applied toward your next season’s order. Buy-back credits carry for 1 year only. (Example: Return 100 packets purchased at $1.50/ea, $75 credit is placed on your account. Under this model you can discount your seeds up to 50% at the end of the season and still make a profit. We kindly request that each store make an effort to clearance their remaining seeds at the end of the season before processing them for return.
Steps for processing a Buyback return order:
- Count all unsold seed packets for your own records (individual varieties don’t matter, just the total number of packets.)
- Place all unsold packets into a box before September 30th, and ship them back to:
SEATTLE SEED CO.
Attn: Buyback Returns
151 12th Ave #100
Seattle, WA 98122
- We will count them and place a credit note on your account. You will receive an email confirming your credit note. Please check to make sure the total count matches your records.
- When placing your order for the next season, your credit will automatically be applied up to 50% of your total order until the credit is depleted. For example, if you have a $75 credit, the entire credit will be applied if your order totals at least $150.
