Return/Refund Policy

Registration fees may be refunded if a cancellation notice is received 30 days prior to the start date of the event. No refunds are offered within 30 days of the event start date.

Delivery method and timing

Event registrations placed through Southern Wholesalers Association website will be processed and reserved immediately upon credit card submission.

Currency of transactions is US dollars.

Secure website

All commerce transactions are processed via secure servers. We outsource our credit card transactions to Authorize.net. Authorize.net’s technology allows us to take every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via our website (such as a credit card number), that information is protected with the industry-standard encryption software – SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only staff members who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.
