Some products sold by PTD are subject to Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) pricing rules, imposed by the manufacturer. PTD strictly and fully adheres to these MAP pricing rules, and requires customers to strictly and fully adhere to such MAP pricing rules. Customer does hereby agree to comply with any and all MAP rules applicable to any products purchased from PTD.

PTD will use commercially reasonable efforts to supply stocked products in requested quantities. In the event that PTD cannot fill an order with inventory available on hand, customer may request that PTD hold open the unfilled portion of the order as a “Back Order” and fill it as soon as possible when PTD receives inventory.
Break Pack / Break Case Policy
PTD sells products subject to set selling increments and minimum quantity policies. These selling increments are established by PTD in its sole discretion and are subject to change without notice. Often, but not always, the selling increment quantity is equal to the case pack quantity provided by the manufacturer. In the event that customer wants to purchase a particular item in a quantity other than the PTD selling increment, PTD may, in its sole discretion: (a) increase the customer’s order to reach the selling increment; (b) honor the customer’s request and sell at the requested quantity; or (c) honor the customer’s request but charge a “Break Case” fee equal to the greater of $0.25 or 5% of the selling price assessed on each item that is requested in a quantity not equal to the selling increment.
As a wholesale distributor, PTD does not collect sales tax. Customer must provide a valid state issued Seller’s Permit and is wholly responsible to abide by all applicable laws governing sales and similar taxes. Customer will notify PTD immediately of any changes in its Seller’s Permit or tax status.
Customers are responsible for shipping charges, except in limited circumstances when PTD, in its sole discretion, offers to deliver the order on a route. At your election, you may provide PTD with your UPS or FedEx account number (“Shipping Account on File”) to be used by PTD to ship your orders to you. Per your instructions, PTD will ship by the carrier corresponding to your Shipping Account on File and will bill the shipping charges to the Shipping Account on File. If you elect not to provide an account number, PTD will ship your order with USPS, UPS or FedEx, and will invoice you for the shipping charges. If you have provided a checking account number or credit card number on file with PTD, PTD may charge the shipping to such checking account or credit card number. Any additional charges for services requested by the customer, including but not limited to customs fees or duties, inside delivery, special routing, or pre-delivery notification must be paid by the customer. PTD reserves the right to refuse to ship to anyone and if it does ship does so at its sole discretion.
No claims will be considered for damaged merchandise, including without limitation damages incurred during shipment, unless made in writing and received by PTD within 3 business days of receipt of the goods. Other than with respect to damaged merchandise, all sales are final.
Payment for site orders is due at checkout. Invoices are due upon receipt or as stated on the invoice. PTD accepts all major credit cards or check by phone or eChecks at the time of order. COD is only available for those orders picked up at the PTD warehouse. All checks or payments returned unpaid by customer or customer’s financial institution will incur a $35 service charge. A collection fee of $35 will be assessed on accounts with past due balances, and a late fee will be assessed on the unpaid balance in an amount equal to the lesser of 2% per month or the highest amount allowed by law. If balances due on customer’s account are not paid in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, customer agrees to pay, in addition to any and all other charges, the reasonable attorney’s fees and collection agency costs incurred in collecting the amount due on the account. In certain cases, PTD asks customers to provide a checking account or credit card to guarantee payment of amounts due on the customer’s account. In such cases, Customer authorizes PTD to charge customer’s checking or credit card account on file with PTD immediately in the event that customer fails to pay any amounts when due. PTD shall charge the checking or credit card account held on file immediately without notice, on or after the due date for the customer account balance. All collection fees and late charges will also be charged to such checking or credit card account.
