For resellers in the US, Canada and South America.

Show me Terms for Iron Fortress Europe.


1. Agreement and Order Processing

1.1 Receipt of Order and Formalization of Agreement
When you as a reseller place an order with Iron Fortress in the USA and hereby accept the general Terms outlined below, you agree to engage in business with Iron Fortress America Inc., a company governed under the laws of the state of Kentucky and, where applicable, under the federal laws of the United States. The reseller is considered to have read and agreed to the terms and conditions provided, which are consistently updated and accessible at www.ironfortress.com.

1.2 Reseller Information
The reseller is fully responsible for ensuring the accuracy and currency of all information they provide about their business to Iron Fortress America (hereafter Iron Fortress). Iron Fortress does not verify or review this information before processing each order. It is incumbent upon the reseller to maintain and update their information as necessary, assuming all risk and responsibility for its accuracy.

1.3 Order Procedure
Before finalizing the online order at ironfortress.com, the reseller will be presented with the total amount due. There will be an opportunity to correct any errors before confirming the order. Once the order is confirmed, the reseller will receive a confirmation email with a temporary order number, the reseller’s name and address, delivery address, and a summary of the products ordered, excluding shipping costs. It is the reseller's responsibility to contact Iron Fortress if any corrections to the order are needed. Iron Fortress requires full payment before dispatching any orders.

1.4 Invoice and Order Confirmation
Upon placing an order online, the invoice will be emailed to the reseller prior to shipping. This invoice will include the invoice number, the reseller's company name and address, a summary of the ordered products, and the shipping costs. Sales tax will be added where applicable. The agreement between the reseller and Iron Fortress becomes binding once Iron Fortress confirms the order by sending an invoice via email. It is the reseller's responsibility to review the invoice for accuracy.

1.5 Changing Closed and Packed Orders
In case the reseller needs to modify an order that has already been closed or packed, Iron Fortress will apply an additional handling fee of 50 USD.

1.6 Missing or Withholding Payment of an Invoice
The reseller is required to pay the order invoice immediately upon receipt via email, which Iron Fortress treats as the initial reminder. The following actions will be taken in cases of non-payment:

a. If the invoice remains unpaid for one business week, Iron Fortress will issue a second reminder via email.
b. If the invoice remains unpaid for two business weeks, the order will be considered canceled and the reseller will be charged a handling fee of 50 USD plus 10% of the total order value. This fee will be billed on a separate invoice and must be paid before the reseller can place another order with Iron Fortress.
c. In cases of overdue payments, Iron Fortress reserves the right to implement a reminder system to notify customers of their outstanding balances. A reminder fee calculated at an interest rate equal to the Federal Reserve System reference rate plus 8 percentage points will be charged monthly until the payment is settled.

1.7 Return Policy
Iron Fortress accepts returns or issues credit notes for defective products up to one year after purchase. If you encounter a defective product, please take the following steps:

1. Download the Iron Fortress Defective Products Registration Sheet.
2. Enter the information in the sheet, save it, and return it to info@ironfortress.com along with pictures of the defective products.
3. Name the "Subject" in the email "Defective Products – Reseller Company Name."

Upon reviewing your claim, Iron Fortress may instruct the reseller to destroy the defective product and provide photographic evidence before issuing a credit note. Alternatively, Iron Fortress may request that the reseller send the product back at their own expense.

When returning items to Iron Fortress, please include the following information in writing with your return package:

1. The name of the Iron Fortress employee who authorized the return.
2. The reason for the return.
3. The invoice number under which the item was sold.
4. The product code number(s) of the item(s).
5. The quantity of items included in the return.

1.8 Account Termination
If a reseller has not placed an order with Iron Fortress within the last 12 months, their account will be suspended, and can only be reactivated with a new order. Additionally, if a reseller has not placed an order within the last 18 months, their account will be terminated. Upon termination, the reseller must remove all images owned by Iron Fortress from their website and catalogs within 36 months of the date of the last order.


2. Prices and Payment

2.1 Prices and Currency
The price applicable is the price stated on the website in connection with the specific product at the time the order is placed. Orders with a delivery address in North and South America will be charged in USD.

2.2 Retail Pricing Policy
Iron Fortress has a strict Pricing Policy for all resellers and has established a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) for each product offered. The RRP is intended as the final selling price to end-users, exclusive of any applicable sales tax. It is mandatory for all authorized resellers to adhere to the RRP set by Iron Fortress across all selling platforms and storefronts.

As a reseller, you may mark the product up to a maximum of +10% above the RRP, but you may not mark it lower than the actual RRP set by Iron Fortress.

Non-compliance with the Iron Fortress RRP Retail Pricing Policy may result in the suspension of your account until your pricing complies. Repeated non-compliance will result in the termination of your reseller account.

2.3 Sales Tax
Iron Fortress will apply sales tax where applicable. The term "sales tax nexus" describes the relationship between a seller and a state that requires the seller to register for, collect, and remit sales tax within that state. A nexus is established through various business activities, such as having a physical presence or surpassing a sales threshold in the state.

2.4 Delivery Costs (Shipping Costs)
For every order placed with Iron Fortress, a delivery cost will be added to cover shipping fees. This fee is determined once the order is packed and is reflected only on the final invoice, not on the web shop. Resellers may choose to collect their orders directly from our warehouse or arrange for their own freight service to pick up the order. Please read our shipping instructions for detailed information.

2.5 Payment Terms
Iron Fortress requires payment in full before shipping any orders. Orders will be retained until complete payment is received. Additionally, Iron Fortress retains ownership and title of all products ordered by the reseller until full payment has been made.
