Drop Ship Program
So you sold a table online to someone a few states away? Don’t have a location there?
An Imperial dealer who sells our tables online and meets our web standards (see slide 6) can have Imperial drop ship tables for them.
Here’s how it works:
1. Use our dealer locator to find an Imperial Dealer near your customer’s location*
2. Contact the Dealer to arrange the details
3. Confirm with your account representative that you will dropship the table to that dealer
- Customer must pay full level 3 price for the table
- Imperial recommends a $650-$750 payment to the installing dealer but this is ultimately negotiated between the two dealers involved
- If there are no Dealers in the customer’s area, we will find one or take recommendations
* We encourage the use of other authorized dealers
Every quarter Imperial will credit authorized dealers 2% on their total purchases across all Imperial product lines including Rasson, Cuetec, Garlando, Aramith and Championship. The more you spend the more you save!
1st1st Quarter Purchases: $100,000 → Receive a Credit of $2,000
