Application of the Program Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions ("Program Terms and Conditions") govern the participation of all Purolator business account customers who are enrolled in the Purolator Business Rewards Program ("Program"). Tendering Shipments to Purolator at a Base Discount (as defined below) constitutes your acceptance of these Program Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to these Program Terms and Conditions, it is your responsibility to advise Purolator that you wish to unenrol from the Program. Purolator reserves the right to make any additions, deletions or modifications to these Program Terms and Conditions at any time.
The Purolator Terms and Conditions in effect at the time a Shipment is tendered to Purolator (including payment terms and limitations on our liability described in the Purolator Terms and Conditions), apply to such Shipments.
Enrolment and Participation
You must have an Approved Account Number in good standing, as determined by Purolator in its sole discretion, at the time of enrolment to participate in the Program. Further, your Approved Account Number must remain in good standing each Fiscal Month in order to continue to participate in the Program.
If you have not yet opened a Purolator small-medium business account, you can sign up through our website at purolator.com or by calling 1-888-529-9777. When you register online, you will also be asked to register for online shipping. Purolator is not responsible for enrolment forms that are lost, misdirected or completed incorrectly.
If you have already signed up for a Purolator small-medium business account but have not yet received your account number, you can check the status of your application by calling our Small Business Sales Professionals at 1-888-529-9777.
If you opened a Purolator small-medium business account at any time prior to May 28, 2012, you have not been automatically enrolled in the Program unless your account was opened under a special promotion providing for automatic enrolment into the Program upon expiry of such promotion. If you wish to enrol, please complete the enrolment form or contact our Small Business Sales Professionals at 1-888-529-9777. Purolator is not responsible for enrolment forms that are lost, misdirected or completed incorrectly. Your enrolment in the Program may take up to the end of the third (3rd) Business Day after your enrolment form is received by Purolator to be activated (the “Actual Date of Enrolment” and, together with the Automatic Date of Enrolment, the “Date of Enrolment”). If there is any dispute as to your Date of Enrolment, Purolator’s records will govern.
You may leave the Program at any time. To unenrol, please contact our Small Business Sales Professionals at 1-888-529-9777.
You may receive a base discount of 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35% or 40% off of the List Rates (the “Base Discount”) as determined by Purolator in accordance with these Program Terms and Conditions.
The Base Discount will be calculated as follows: at the end of each Fiscal Month, Purolator will sum the shipping revenue it has received from your Eligible Shipping Charges over the immediately preceding twelve (12) Fiscal Months (the “Assessment Period”), divide such revenue by the number of Business Days in the Assessment Period, and multiply such average shipping revenue per day by the number of Business Days in the immediately preceding twelve (12) Fiscal Months, the product of which will be your estimated annual shipping revenue with Purolator. Your estimated annual shipping revenue will be used to determine your Base Discount for the upcoming Fiscal Month as follows:
Base Discounts Table
|$.01 to $3,000||15%|
|$3,000.001 to $5,000.00||20%|
|$5,000.01 to $7,500.00||25%|
|$7,500.01 to $12,500.00||30%|
|$12,500.01 to $18,000.00||35%|
|$18,000.01 and more||40%|
At the beginning of each Fiscal Month, Purolator will apply the applicable Base Discount, on a per Eligible Shipment basis, to the Eligible Shipping Charges incurred under your Approved Account Number (the “Discounted Amount”). The Discounted Amount will be reflected on your invoice. Due to the discrepancy between shipping dates, billing cycles and the calculation of the Base Discount (which is based on a Fiscal Month), you may not be billed for all Eligible Shipments in the same calendar month in which such Shipments occurred. No Program discounts will be applied to any shipping charges incurred prior to your Date of Enrolment.
If you do not have a twelve (12) Fiscal Month shipping history with Purolator immediately prior to your Date of Enrolment, your Base Discount will be calculated in the same manner as described above. New Program customers will not receive any Base Discount in their first (1st) Fiscal Month of shipping with Purolator, unless they are eligible for a Program-related discount or promotion in effect at the Date of Enrolment or they have established a twelve (12) Fiscal Month shipping history immediately preceding their Date of Enrolment.
Your Base Discount will also be applied to the following Purolator Specialized Service charges, administrative charges and shipping charges (as such terms are defined in the Purolator Terms and Conditions) that may be applied to a Shipment (“Approved Additional Charges”):
Chain of Signature
Saturday Service (Pick-up/Delivery)
Signature Required (Residential)
Declared Value Surcharge
The Collect and Third Party surcharges have been waived for all Purolator Business Rewards members.
You may, from time to time while you are enrolled in this Program, receive additional discounts or promotions as determined by Purolator in its sole discretion on Eligible Shipments (“Discretionary Discounts”). Any Discretionary Discounts will either be applied in lieu of your Base Discount or in addition to your Base Discount. Where such Discretionary Discount is applied at the Date of Enrolment or at any other time while you are enrolled in the Program, such Discretionary Discount will be applied in lieu of the Base Discount that you would have been entitled to receive under the Program for the period over which the Discretionary Discount applies. Upon the expiry of such Discretionary Discount, your Base Discount will be calculated in the same matter as described above. Where such Discretionary Discount is applied in addition to your Base Discount, Purolator will fix your Base Discount for the entire period over which the Discretionary Discount is offered to the Base Discount you were entitled to at the date the Discretionary Discount offer begins. Please note that the terms of each Discretionary Discount for which you are eligible will be communicated to you at the time such Discretionary Discount is offered to you.
Invoice Errors or Discrepancies
You should call Small Business Sales Professionals at 1 888 529-9777 to report any Program-related errors or discrepancies on your invoice within 90 days of the date of the invoice, after which time you will be deemed to have accepted such invoice. Purolator will investigate such reported Program-related errors and discrepancies and make any corrections, adjustments or modifications deemed necessary using the Base Discount that applied in the month in which the Shipment(s) to which the error or discrepancy relates occurred.
To report non-Program related errors or discrepancies on your invoice, please call the number on your invoice.
Unless you are eligible to receive Discretionary Discounts, the Base Discounts offered through this Program cannot be combined with any other Purolator discounts, promotions, rebate or reward programs, savings plans or waivers that may be available to you from Purolator or through any authorized Purolator representative. By participating in this Program you hereby: (i) agree to waive any non-Program discounts that you may have been entitled to receive from the Date of Enrolment, and (ii) acknowledge and agree that your enrolment in any other Purolator savings, reward, rebate or other similar type of program in which you may have previously been enrolled will cease to be effective at the Date of Enrolment.
Purolator reserves the right to remove you from the Program if you are authorizing others to ship Eligible Shipments under your Approved Account Number for the purpose of benefiting from the consolidation of such other Shipments that are tendered to us, or you are otherwise acting as an express delivery consolidator. For greater certainty, entities that are affiliated with the Approved Account Number may, with Purolator’s prior approval, be entitled to have their Purolator small-medium business account linked with such Approved Account Number to benefit from the combined revenue of all accounts for the purpose of determining the Base Discount. In addition, entities that have multiple Approved Account Numbers may, with Purolator’s prior approval, be entitled to have such Approved Account Numbers linked to benefit from the combined revenue of all accounts for the purpose of determining the Base Discount.
Associations and buying groups are also not eligible to participate in the Program.

Tendering Shipments to Purolator on or after the effective date of any suspension, modification or termination of the Program constitutes your acceptance of such suspension, modification or termination.
Purolator reserves the right to suspend, modify or terminate your participation in this Program at any time and for any reason. Purolator in its sole discretion will make all decisions regarding eligibility to participate in the Program.
