Free samples to distributor?

Recommended Posts

hello, sorry to be a newbie but we are currently distributing in TN but have a company in CA that would like to distribute us. As you can imagine we are excited. When they just sent us their first PO they included 1 case of each of our spirits as free samples. Our current TN distributor pays for their samples at a discounted rate. With no experience with this I wanted to ask if free samples is a typical situation with a distributor or out of the ordinary? Thanks for any help. Cheers!

There are distributors that will request that they can have free samples, usually this is stated in the contract, and usually the amount is limited to a percentage of the total amount purchased. And I have had our CA distributor ask for a very limited number of free samples. On the other hand, my experience with the 3 distillers we have used in IL is similar to yours in TN, they will charge back 50% of the price of stock on hand that they pull for samples.
