Dealer requirements and discount policy

Albatros Skyworld dealers must take their business seriously. They should possess the necessary experience in order that they can objectively and professionally advise their customers.

The Albatros Skyworld dealers are independent and do business on their own behalf. Dealers can set up their own price-structure. At Albatros Skyworld we also reserve the right to our own independent price-structure, whereby the interests of our dealers have priority.

Dealers must have internet access. Via the internet all important information and marketing tools for the dealers are provided.

Quantity-Discounts for Accessories: We offer especially low prices on particular products for large quantity orders. The dealer-price depends on the quantities ordered. These quantity discounts apply especially for fast-selling articles. The conditions are generally sent with the current price-lists.


Albatros supports its dealers with all the necessary dealer documentation and background information:

1. Dealer Access Albatros opens a separate and password protected gateway for its dealers to its internet/online shop. Via this access dealers can view the actual dealer prices and special offers and can calculate their own offers with the aid of the calculation module (Configurator).
2. Online Catalogue Up to date and extensive information about products are placed on disposal in the online catalogue.
3. Stock Lists The current Albatros and producer stock lists of harnesses and canopies are also made available online.
4. Sales Advice For additional sales information or advice our hotline or e-mail service is available.
5. Dealer News Regular bulletins about parachute market news (new products, special marketing activities)

Order Procedures

Stock goods will be delivered and immediately invoiced. If the order cannot be shipped immediately, for example because of the delivery-time from the manufacturer, a written confirmation of the order will be sent. The delivery times quoted are derived mainly from the manufacturers. Albatros, therefore, cannot take any responsibility for delays caused by the manufacturer.

Published Albatros dealer-prices are initially not binding. Unfortunately there are sometimes short-term price-rises from the manufacturers, which take immediate effect, and which we cannot cover. We also cannot be held responsible for typing errors in the price-lists.

Only after written confirmation from Albatros (2-5 days after receipt of the order) can we guarantee the prices for this order. Thereafter exchange-rate variations and manufacturers price-rises will be covered by Albatros unless other agreements have been made. (Price-Guarantee).

In practice, variations in price between the price-lists and the confirmation are very rare. The order can be cancelled in such a situation within 8 days.

Deliveries in the USA

If required, dealers can order US products from us and have them delivered in the USA. Invoicing would then be in US-Dollar without VAT. Dealers generally receive a 26 % Discount off the recommended retail-price from the US manufacturer (e.g. PD, Aerodyne, Sun Path, Relative Workshop and Rigging Innovations products). Shipping-costs to point of delivery will be covered by the dealer. The choice of place of delivery is completely open.

Important: Shipping risks in these cases will be covered by the Dealer (can be insured). The invoice amount must be paid into the Albatros US$ account before delivery of the goods in the US. We assume that the goods will be legally declared for import duties, should they be re-imported into the EU.
