Membership Levels

We offer trade members discounts based on total company purchase:

Membership Levels and Benefits

Gold and Platinum status are granted at the company level, so all members of the same company will have the same membership tier. Purchases (net of returns) made at any of our brands within a 12-month period, whether through a retail location or a dedicated Trade Representative, by any registered designer of the same company, will count towards membership upgrades.

Membership status is reviewed at the beginning of each month. If your company qualifies for an upgrade based on previous 12-month purchases, you will automatically receive, via email, a temporary membership card reflecting your new membership status. Your new permanent membership card will arrive in the mail within the following 4 weeks. For questions regarding your company’s upgrade status, call a dedicated Trade Representative at 888-837-4888 (702-360-7147 if outside the US).

Always use your Williams-Sonoma, Inc. Designer Marketplace membership card for making trade purchases. Purchases made without your valid membership ID number will not be counted towards membership upgrades. Returned purchases will be deducted from your 12-month cumulative purchase total.


To check your membership status or dispute your membership level, please contact a dedicated Trade Representative at (888) 837-4888 or (702) 360-7147 if outside the US. Keep a copy of all your transaction receipts for the past 12 months. You may be asked to furnish your purchase records.
