Another great question from an AMSOIL Dealer in the Sparks Team.
Got a call from a dealer trying to register a new dealer. He wanted to know which package was the best.
Which dealer option is the best to get started with. New AMSOIL Dealers have the option of registering for 1 year for $30, 6 months for $15, 1 year plus business manual for $75. As well as an optional AMSOIL literature pack. So what should I tell this new dealer?
Recently my answer has changed because AMSOIL has the business manual available for download as well as the T-1 Certification test online (in the AMSOIL Dealers zone)
Here is my answer:
If I were talking with a new prospective dealer, my recommendation would be to go with the least expensive registration available. This is the $15 for 6 months dealer registration) Then I would recommend this dealer to use the money they would have spent on sales tools to help them get started.
- Business Cards $18 for 200 (see my post on the AMSOIL Print Center)
- Order G100 Retail Catalogs -$10 for 20
- Order AMSOIL Shirt – $40 for a nice polo
- Commercial Account registration kit $5 each
- Retail On the Shelf / Installer registration kit $5 each
- Website domain registration $9.95/year
- AMSOIL lubedealer website $20/year
This is an AMSOIL essentials list to get started as a new dealer. The cost (including the 6 months registration) is $125 approx. This will give you some tools to get you started on the fast track.
Once your 6 month dealership comes for renewal you should be able to pay for your yearly renewal fees ($39 a year) from your AMSOIL Commission check. Getting started right is essential to having a profitable and growing AMSOIL business.
As you can see, with any business venture there will be some start-up costs. With AMSOIL these costs are at a minimum and will be used to help you become profitable even in your very first year.

New Dealers can register two ways. They can fill out a paper application called a G18C and mail to AMSOIL. This application will have your sponsoring dealer name and number attached to it. Like the one I have here AMSOIL Dealer Application
You can register online via the AMSOIL Online Dealer Application if you are already working with a dealer in the Sparks Team then get back with that dealer. If you are unsure or would like to work directly with us give us a call 931-801-9401 or contact us via our contact page
