Welcome to the terms and conditions ("Terms") for Evergreen Enterprises of Virginia, LLC. These Terms are between you and Evergreen Enterprises of Virginia, LLC. and/or its affiliates ("Evergreen Enterprises Canada" or "Evergreen On-Demand") and govern our respective rights and obligations. Please note that your use of the MyEvergreen.com website are also governed by the agreements listed and linked to below, as well as all other applicable terms, conditions, limitations, and requirements on the MyEvergreenOnline.com website, all of which (as changed over time) are incorporated into these Terms. If you register for a retailer account, you accept these terms, conditions, limitations and requirements.
First time order payment terms are Credit Card or Prepaid only. We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card. To establish a net term account, we require a completed and signed Evergreen credit application with at least three (3) trade references. After receipt of this information, please allow 2 - 4 weeks for review and approval. To expedite processing, please include your requested credit limit.
MINIMUM ORDER POLICY:
The minimum per warehouse purchase amount is $150 for Evergreen and $500 for Plow & Hearth. All prices are wholesale and subject to change without notice.
Under the supervision of the Treasurer, the Evergreen Enterprises credit department’s mission is to quickly extend credit to potential and current customers whose financial conditions indicate that payment for our products will be made in a timely manner. The roles and activities of the credit and collections staff shall coordinate and cooperate with those of the sales department and align with overall corporation policies.
The objectives of Evergreen Enterprises credit policy are to optimize cash flow by converting accounts receivable to cash as fast as possible, minimize risk of bad debt loses, maximize profitability by reducing carrying costs, and maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Practices are designed to permit the maximum number of orders to flow without interruption though the sales department and allow interception, when necessary, as a means of safeguarding the company assets.
Every potential and current customer will be required to have a signed credit application on file. This application will be used as the (initial) source document for credit review. In addition, the following may be needed to satisfy the customer’s credit limits and terms approval:
Credit limits are determined based on the customer’s rating, their ability to pay, and their expected sales volume of purchases. The position of Credit Manager will use discretion while granting limits under $50k. Large credit limits require increased levels of risk analysis and may employ risk-scoring models using internal and external elements and methodologies. Credit limits over $50k will require Executive approval.
Credit decisions on new accounts will be communicated to the customer and sales management within 72 hours of receipt of an application. During peak (show) seasons, credit decisions will be completed and communicated as soon as possible. No customer will be denied the right to purchase our products until every means of selling to the customer has been exhausted.
Once creditworthiness has been established, Evergreen is pleased to offer the following payment terms to our customers:
Extended terms requested beyond 90 days will only be available in extraordinary circumstances (New Account 1st purchase, Inventory reduction) and will require executive-level approval. All customers agree to their approved credit and payment terms and they are expected to make payments by the invoice due date.
Evergreen accepts the following methods of payment:
In addition, our ORC (online resource center) is available for you to make payment arrangements 24hrs/day.
It is the Companies policy to regularly review and re-evaluate the credit of our existing customers to monitor any changes in their level of risk. Reviews can be initiated based on payment performance, returns, NSF’s, additional information obtained, and any external market factors that warrant the necessity. The process involves the assessment of a customer’s ongoing ability and willingness to pay within terms.
Defined “critical” customers will be re-evaluated at least once a year.
Our ORC and customer service are available to process return and damage claims. Unearned discounts and unauthorized deductions will not be honored. Every effort will be made to address customer’s deductions (returns, chargebacks, price, and quantity adjustments) in a timely manner so that account balances reflect the most updated and accurate information.
Evergreen Enterprises will charge a 1.5% monthly finance fee on any invoice that is past due 90 days. (18% annually, or the applicable usury limit in your state). Effective 1/1/2023 any finance fees incurred due to late payment will not be waived.
To further support the credit department’s goals, collection methods (especially for past due accounts) will be both proactive and consistent. When an account first becomes delinquent, multiple collection strategies will be implemented. Customer contact will be made via phone, fax, letter, email push notifications (dun notices) and on our online resource center (ORC). Credit and shipment holds will also be employed as part of our collection efforts. Members of the credit department will always maintain professional and ethical behavior when communicating with customers.
If the credit department’s efforts do not produce the desired collection results, any unresolved account that is past due 120+ days will be transitioned to our collection agency. All amounts due plus additional late charges and cost of collections will be the responsibility of the Customer.

BACK ORDER & SUBSTITUTION POLICY:
If a product is not available on the original shipment, a backorder will be created if the total value exceeds $50. Shipping charges will be applied to the backorder. We will not create backorders if specifically requested by customers. Backorders that do not ship within 90 days of the original ship date or seasonal items that do not ship within 20 days of the end of the season or holiday will automatically be canceled unless otherwise specified by customer. Evergreen, at our discretion, may substitute like items in response to out-of-stock situations. In such cases, customers may choose to "opt-out" of the substitution and wait for receipt of the actual item ordered by making a "No Substitutions" notation on the order form, or by informing the customer service representative taking the order.
We ship via UPS Ground anywhere in the continental United States, unless weight or packaging restrictions require us to ship using common carrier. Orders placed with items designated as "Truck Shipments Only" will ship via truck, no exceptions. If there are no specific instructions, we will ship the fastest and least expensive method possible, selected at the discretion of Evergreen. Freight charges will be subject to fuel-related surcharges, which may vary throughout the year. Any additional services the carrier must provide, including, but not limited to inside delivery, lack of lift gate, etc will be charged directly to the customer at the discretion of the carrier and will not be refunded by Evergreen. Any additional charges due to re-delivery or re-routing are the responsibility of the customer.
We ship to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico via United States Postal Service. Additional shipping and handling charges will apply for these shipments.
If a replacement item is requested, customer will receive credit for the original item, and re-billed for the replacement - no freight will be charged on the replacement item.
Please allow 1 - 4 weeks from the time we receive your order for shipping as available. Terms, conditions and prices subject to change without notice. All shipments will be invoiced at prices in effect at the time of order placement.
OS - Oversize Shipment- Additional surcharges may be applied.
DIM WEIGHT - Also known as Dimensional weight. Freight carriers utilize the greater of the actual weight or dimensional weight to calculate shipping charges. Dimensional Weight is calculated as (Length x Width x Height) / (Dimensional Factor).
