  • Is there a minimum order?
    Yes. Our Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) is $200, less shipping. From The Valley specialize in assisting small and micro businesses so we always endeavor to keep our MOQ as low as possible to accommodate this. You will be required to meet the MOQ in your cart for us to be able to process your order for shipping.
  • What if I don't meet the MOQ?
    You do not need to reach the Minimum Order Quantity to proceed with your order. Simply click the "add to open basket" at check out and we will open up a basket for you here in our warehouse. Once you have reached the MOQ we will invoice you your shipping fee via email and get your items sent out to you. This is also a great option if you have a basket open with us from our social media sales and want to add a few things without having to start a new minimum order!
  • Reaching MOQ
    From The Valley operates in a way that focuses on helping small business, which means we have some options to suit everyone! Website MOQ When ordering from the website, you will be required to reach the minimum order of $200 in order to ship your order. We also have an open basket option which you can read more about in our "What If I Don't Reach Minimum Order" tab. We have the most Buy Now Pay Later options available when ordering via our website. Social Media MOQ If you don't or can't order the full MOQ amount in one go, then social media ordering it the option for you! When ordering via social media, we don't require members to achieve the full minimum order of $200 in one order. From The Valley allows members to add to their basket and pay as they go and once your total reached MOQ we will ship! For example, if you want to claim a tower worth $15, we will invoice you the $15 (subject to Invoice Policy rules), add it to your basket and keep it open for you until you find another $175 worth of items you like! You can take your time to find the perfect pieces too, as we allow basket to stay open for up to six weeks. We do this so that members with micro businesses can build up their basket as funds become available and so that we don't have people feeling like they have to add items they don't particularly want just to meet minimum order. Whether ordering on a live sale, via comments or 1:1 this option is available! In-person MOQ Our in-person MOQ rules are the same as our social media rules, however we definitely recommend that members come to their appointment ready and willing to reach MOQ so that they don't have to leave without their items!
  • How long can I keep my basket open?
    Baskets may remain open for up to 6 weeks, provided all invoices are paid up-to-date and all Terms and Conditions have been followed. After 6 weeks, the basket is subject to relisting without further notice. Please see "Invoicing Details" for more information.
  • What payment methods do you accept?
    We accept regular debit and credit card payments as well as Afterpay, Klana (Pending), Paypal Pay-in-4 and Paypal.
  • How do I join?
    From The Valley is a wholesale business, meaning that we only sell to retail businesses who purchase our items to stock their shops.

ABNs are completely free and take very little time to acquire! We also require your name, address, phone, email and business name.

  • Does From The Valley have social media pages?
    We sure do! From The Valley has a private Instagram and Facebook account which we use to run live sales, post items and share our Mineralogy knowledge. We definitely recommend joining!
  • Is your web stock and social media stock the same?
    Yes and no. When we receive in a new shipment, we divvy up the stock between the two options. So for example, if we receive 10kg of Moss Agate towers, we will put 5kg on the website and 5 kg for social media meaning whilst you may be able to buy Moss Agate towers both via web and social media, the individual pieces offered are not the same. When it comes to the special pieces like statements, specimens and on-off, they will be available over both platforms.
  • Can I combine MOQ with my open order from a live/socials sale and a web order?
    Yes! Our brand new "add to open basket" option at the check out allows you to add to your basket little by little if you cannot commit to the full MOQ in one hit. Once you have reached MOQ we will send you an invoice via email for your shipping fee.
  • What if i select a shipping option when my basket total is less than $200?
    Please only select Signature On Delivery or Express Post if your basket totals $200 or more. If your total is less than $200, select the "Add to My Open Basket" option. You will later be invoiced the shipping fee via email when you reach MOQ. If you do select and pay for shipping without reaching the MOQ of $200, your basket will be kept open and not shipped until the MOQ is reached either via web order or social media order. We will not charge a secondary shipping fee.
  • How much is shipping?
    Our shipping rates are calculated based on the weight and size of the package. Our rates stared at $17.49 and almost all of our shipping fees remain under $30.
