Discounts & Discount Groups

We offer three different discount groups, Churches & Clergy, Church Bookstores (2 categories; read qualifications below) and Retail Stores.  Explanation of each, qualification criteria and terms are specified below.

A Virtual Store (Web-based business)  does not receive any discount but can qualify for the Affiliate Sales program.

For each group two types of discounts apply: normal and limited. A normal, or full, discount applies only to most Icons.  A limited discount is one-half your group discount rate.  It applies to all products marked as "Limited Discount" (visible under the title of relevant products after you log in).  This includes some of the more special or custom Icons, as well as most of the Gifts and Devotional Items.  Custom enlargements (as opposed to custom mounting) are also Limited Discount. Books, CDs, cassettes, and video tapes are not discounted at all

Discounts are not applied if you come to our site via an affiliate link.  The site will state if the discount is not being applied because of this.  If you wish to receive your regular group discount, close all open browser windows (not just the browser open to our site) and then come back to the site via our main Web address (www.skete.com).  Shutting down all browser instances deletes your shopping session and removes an associated affiliate account so that your discount will apply. 

You must request membership in a discount group when you create a new account.  If you already have an account with us that receives a discount, please also apply for this discount group here with your online account.  This is a separate system and you will need to be registered here to recieve your discount while you are shopping online.  We kindly ask you to allow approximately one business day for us to process your request. 

After reviewing the information below, if you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.

Churches & Clergy (10-40%)

Churches and clergy recieve a sliding 10-40% discount on normal discount items, 5-20% on "Limited Discount" items.

Pre-Discount Order Total Normal Discount Items Limited Discount Items
$0 to $199.99 10% 5%
$200.00 to $499.99 20% 10%
$500.00 to $799.99 30% 15%
$800.00 or more 40% 20%

Church Bookstores (40% Discount)

Church bookstores recieve a 40% discount on normal discount items, 20% on "Limited Discount" items. 

To qualify as a church bookstore your store must have a physical location and keep inventory in stock.  Your store must have its own stationery and a separate business checking account.  (The only exception is if your store does $25,000 in total gross sales per year or more.  Smaller church bookstores and kiosks can still apply for membership in the Churches and Clergy discount group. 

The initial order should be accompanied with 50% down, with the balance due 30 days after the invoice date.  A credit application must be completed and returned prior to your first order. 

All future orders are due 30 days after the invoice date if the balance is kept current.  Accounts in arrears and not paid in full 15 days after one late notice will require full payment in advance before further shipments can be made. 

Our prices are low in part because we make every effort to spend as little time as possible collecting on our accounts.  Please help us keep our prices low by paying promptly.
