Dealer Certification FAQ

The Dealer Certification Program (formerly known as “T1 Certification”) provides powerful support from AMSOIL to help you build your business. As announced in the January AMSOIL Magazine, you can now qualify for three separate categories, each of which unlocks a new set of benefits. See the Dealer Certification FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions about the new Dealer Certification program.

Updated Requirements for Retail Accounts to Appear on the AMSOIL Locator

We’ve updated the minimum purchase amounts for your retail accounts to remain active on the AMSOIL Locator at www.amsoil.com. Your retail accounts must purchase a minimum of $350 ($450 Canada) of product within the previous three months. They can meet any of the following purchase requirements to remain active on the AMSOIL Locator:

U.S.                                                         Canada
$350 in the previous 3 months                $450 in the previous 3 months
$700 in the previous 6 months                $900 in the previous 6 months
$1,050 in the previous 9 months             $1,350 in the previous 9 months
$1,400 in the previous 12 months           $1,800 in the previous 12 months

The minimum purchase amount to receive a free Merchandising Kit for qualifying accounts has also increased to $350 ($450 Canada). These minimal increases allow us to continue offering these benefits while contending with increasing raw-material costs and rising freight costs due to truck driver shortages and a reduction in routes and capacity of rail transportation.

The “3 Great Perks for New AMSOIL Retail Accounts” sell sheet is now available in separate U.S. (G3375) and Canadian (G8375) documents.

P.C. Quotes Using EZ Order & Quote Form

With the recent differentiation between Preferred Customer and Dealer pricing, we have modified the EZ Order & Quote Form by adding a Preferred Customer option under the “Generate Quick Quote” functionality. Dealers may now generate quotes for Dealers, P.C.s, retail accounts and commercial accounts.

In a related change, P.C. prices have been added to the Product Pricing Lookup located in the Mobile Apps section of the Dealer Zone.

ATV/UTV Oil Change Kits Coming in March

New AMSOIL ATV/UTV Oil Change Kits will be available in March. Each of the three kits contains AMSOIL 5W-50 Synthetic ATV/UTV Motor Oil and a filter for performing an oil change on select Polaris* ATVs and UTVs, including the Ranger*, Sportsman* and RZR*. Check out the March AMSOIL Magazine for details.

Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil Now Available for Resale in Canada

In 2011, we entered a partnership with leading small engine manufacturer Briggs & Stratton to develop a motor oil specifically for the company's most demanding racing engines. Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil was the result.

Historically, Canadian Dealers could purchase limited quantities of the product for promotional purposes only and not for resale in Canada. We're happy to announce the elimination of that restriction. Canadian Dealers may now purchase Synthetic 4T Racing Oil for resale in Canada.

We've updated the product with a bi-lingual label to comply with Canadian law. While AMSOIL products with bi-lingual labels are typically available for sale only in Canada, we're making an exception in this case due to our partnership with Briggs & Stratton. For that reason, all bottles of Synthetic 4T Racing Oil now feature a bi-lingual label regardless of the country in which they're sold. This helps keep costs down and streamline distribution.

For product details, see the updated Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil product data bulletin (G3114).

Canadian Interline Fee Changes

Loomis Express has changed the way interline fees are determined and expanded the number of Canadian postal codes that are subject to interline fees. Interline fees are applicable to small parcel shipments below 250 lbs., where the final destination address is classified by Loomis as remote or a beyond-delivery point. Due to the number of postal codes affected, a new lookup tool is available on the shipping information page at amsoil.com.
