supply magazines at a 25 percent discount. Discounts can be higher if orders are large enough.
All magazines are due for payment by the end of the 2nd month following the month they were invoiced in. For example, all invoices dated July should be paid by the end of September. This applies whether the magazines are monthly, quarterly or annual. All our magazines can be returned unsold, provided this is done within a certain period. For more precise returns conditions please click here.
In practice this can occasionally mean that you have to pay for all the copies of a particular magazine before you have returned them.
When you do send returns to us (many people wait till they get a new issue before returning the previous one), we will issue a credit note, which we send out with the statements each month. We ask customers not to make deductions till credit notes have been issued.
For most magazines you do not need to return the whole copies, you only have to return to us the bannerhead of the magazines - that bit of the cover with the title and date of issue on. However is the magazine is Selvedge magazine or the magazine is priced at £10 or over we need the whole copy returned before we can credit it.

We send out statements every month listing all invoices and credit notes and paid items; if you notice a discrepancy, please contact us immediately. Late payment can mean that supplies will be suspended. If this happens, you will miss issues of all magazines for the period that your account is on stop. We hope this will not happen, but given our tight margins and commitment to pay the magazine publishers promptly (and they are often walking a financial tightrope, like ourselves and yourselves) we have to be fairly rigorous about our terms!
It is always worth while keeping a regular check on sales and increasing or decreasing your standing orders as necessary, please
