How to become a Reseller
If you are looking to start your own business selling cleaning products, Blendwell Chemicals has a great range of cleaning products for you to sell. It is a good idea to start with a business plan. Most people start with wanting to sell everything to everyone but this is not a strategy that works. You will need to be specific. This will help you with your focus once you get going. Ask yourself some questions like:
- who do you want to sell to? Households, businesses, schools, etc
- what do you want to sell? Basic household and office cleaning products, industrial products for factories and workshops, specialised products for the food industry, eco-friendly cleaning products are some possibilities
- where do you want to sell? It’s a good idea to have a clear area that you will target your clients in
- can you sell to your potential clients in 5L, 25L, 200L or 1000L flowbins? Or do you need to consider repacking to make it more convenient to your clients? How will you do this?
- If you are not close to our factory, how will you get your goods? We can help with arranging a courier if you are outside of Johannesburg but this will add an additional cost to your product. Make sure you add this cost to your pricing.
We offer discounts on orders over 500L. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in bulk buying. Click here to send us an email

What is a Blendwell Distributor?
Blendwell Chemicals does sign exclusivity agreements with business partners. This option is only available to larger and established companies who are able to verify their credentials as leaders within their area. We do not offer this option in Gauteng. This is a process that will involve some confidential agreements between our two companies. To maintain this agreement, you will be required to make purchases of above a preset amount each month. If you are interested in this option we will need some paperwork to get the ball rolling and this will include: a tax clearance certificate, VAT registration certificate and company registration papers. We would also like to know if you have audited financial statements. Please email your enquiries to our email address
