Make sustainability your business with our business-in-a-box program.
Home-based refill stations
Since we opened our first refill station in 2010, refilling household products has become normal. For years people have asked how they can join our mission and if they can open a refill station at home. And we thought: why not!
How it works
Fill out the application program. We review each application to make sure you're not in another member's territory, or too close to one of our retail partners.
Receive your email confirmation and set up your account.
Set up your onboarding call
Set up your business
Like a brick-and-mortar or Etsy store, you need to work out if your state requires you to register as a business and/or collect sales tax. We are not business law or tax experts so we've partnered with Stripe to help.
This is often the most daunting part but we know that if we did it, you can too! We strongly suggest you use a service to help you manage this part of your business. It will save you time and money in the long run.
Once you know the date you can start selling (based on whether you need to collect sales tax on your first dollar and/or when you will receive your authorization, you can order your refill station!
Now that you're an At Homepreneur, you can order product whenever you like. Click the button below to access the At Home store special prices.
You'll notice there are minimums for certain products and your total order. This helps us keep prices low and shipping free.
First order? Just make sure you know when you are legally allowed to resell, based on your sales tax authorization.
