General book procurement - Order fulfillment
We are able to meet all sorts of bookseller's requests from unit orders
to the delivery of pallets. We endeavour to source any English-language
book for our customer whether it is a worldwide bestseller or a book very
difficult to find, thanks to our extensive list of UK and US publishers.
All our customers are entitled to full Rights of Return on all the books
purchased from Papyrus - Book Division of Tondeur Diffusion s.a. within a year. This is a cutting-edge advantage
for the bookseller who does not have to worry about unsold books. No need
to mention the cost savings resulting from shipping books back to our close-by
logistic center in Brussels...
We offer you the possibility to choose from a handful of partnering freighters
for your deliveries. Upon request we can guarantee delivery within 48 hours
for all books in stock.
New titles selection service
A vast majority of our booksellers now use our tailor-made new titles selection
service. Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of our markets readers' preferences,
built up over more than a 20 year-experience, we are capable of making the
best book selections on behalf of our customers. In these cases, we generally
work on an "office" basis. As such, regular deliveries of new books guarantee
that your product range is always up to date. Another benefit is the availability
of "early-export editions", i.e. cheaper editions that are not even available
in their country of origin.
We also work in cooperation with our publishers and booksellers to set up
individual promotional events. These promotions may vary from a price promotion
on a selected list of titles to a much more sophisticated "coffee table"
books selection for display during seasonal sales for example. Contact us
if you want to know more about this service.
Quotations - special offers
Upon request, our specialist team can take the book lists supplied and,
working closely with our publishing partners, provide the best quote they
can. Beyond pricing, we also ensure you obtain the most up-to-date information
about the status of the book, such as new editions, out-of-print, out-of-stock,
For substantial orders, the team will negotiate for larger discounts. Our
relationships with freight companies also mean the team can get the best
terms in case a special delivery is required.
If the books require servicing such as price tagging, labeling, etc., please
contact us for further information and specific price quotation. We will
do our best to adapt to the needs of your organization…
