Sales Terms for Booksellers

 

“Since its inception, OR Books has been steadily building its reputation as a publisher of dissident voices and victims of political persecution (they’re also one of the few publishers who refuses to wholesale their books to Amazon).” —David Richter, Book Culture (New York)

OR Books is a new type of publishing company. To avoid the cost of warehousing and the waste of unsold stock we print our books on demand. We do not use a distributor. But ordering from us is easy: most OR Books are available to bookstores at a 50% discount, and we ship on a pre-paid, non-returnable basis. There is a five copy minimum for discounted orders. If fewer copies are required, we recommend purchasing directly through our retail catalog pages. Before placing an order for OR Books or OR Partners (including CUNY Journalism Press, Centro Primo Levi, Big Roundtable, The Nation Magazine), please refer to the following guidelines:

FOR OR BOOKS: OR Books is pleased to announce a partnership with Counterpoint Press, the noted Berkeley-based independent publisher. Things should become even easier for bookstores that have in the past bought from us on a pre-paid only basis. Counterpoint will be selling to the trade via Publishers Group West, and so the books will also be available from major wholesalers. For these titles, sales will be made on consignment, and returns will be accepted. The books now available from the Counterpoint partnership include certain forthcoming titles and several of our backlist books. If you’re not sure where or how to order one of our books, a title-by-title listing can be found under WHOLESALE CATALOG below or by visiting our catalogs on Edelweiss. For any questions or to place a wholesale order, please write to orders [at] orbooks.com or call (212) 514-6485.

FOR OR PARTNERS (including CUNY Journalism Press, Centro Primo Levi, Big Roundtable, The Nation Magazine): All titles are available to the trade at a 50% discount, pre-paid, non-returnable. To place a wholesale order, please write to orders [at] orbooks.com or call (212) 514-6485.

FOR SERIF BOOKS: Please refer to the Serif website for distribution information.

Questions or concerns of any kind? Please write to us at orders [at] orbooks.com or call us at (212) 514-6485 and we’re happy to help. Don’t forget to join our mailing list for booksellers for the latest in promotions, upcoming titles, and the news that affects booksellers.
