Services

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.

Promotions

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, etc.

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.

Books servicing

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…
