Trade & Bulk Purchases 

The key information on how to order for RYA Training Centres, trade accounts and other organisations.

Please note: we are still undertaking the final developments for our Online Trade Shop. If you require any more information, or would like to take part in our pilot test, please email

We hope to have the Online Trade Shop available to all users by Spring 2018.

Terms and Conditions

Trade Purchases are governed by the RYA Trading Terms as amended by the special conditions set out below.

How to Order

The RYA webshop is designed for individuals and RYA members to make purchases online. There is currently no option for RYA Training Centres, trade accounts, and other organisations to order online; please either call or email using the details below.

RYA Training Centres

RYA Training Centres automatically have a special trade discount which comes with RYA Recognition to enable centres to trade certain items. This offers discounts not only on RYA print retail products but other items that we sell.

Please note this discount can only be gained by ordering by phone or email as shown above and is NOT available on purchases made through the webshop.


Unfortunately, eBooks are not covered under the Training Centre discount. They are linked to individual email addresses and there is currently no provision for widespread bulk selling of eBooks for trade (outside of ePacks).

The best way for Training Centres and other trade accounts to sell eBooks is by using the Partner Programme and gain commission on sales.

We would recommend that RYA instructors buy eBooks in the RYA webshop under their personal account to access the member's discount.

If a Training Centre needs to buy an eBook as shared teaching resource they can contact the Orders team but please note that no discount will be applicable.

Trade Accounts

Trade accounts are available to organisations that wish either to trade or buy RYA print items in bulk, and credit terms are available (on application) for these accounts. Please note that trade accounts can only receive discount on RYA items.  

Cancellation and Returns

Statutory cancellation rights do not apply to RYA Training Centres and other trade accounts. However the RYA will ordinarily accept requests to repurchase stock that is still current and in resalable condition for up to 28 days after the products were purchased. Requests for returns outside of the 28 day period and up to 12 months after purchase may be made to the Publications Department.

Set up a Trade Account
