RUNNING A BOOK FAIR

You receive an Information Pack and advertising material.

Books are delivered in metal cases or in boxes, at no cost to the school.

Orders for more copies can be taken and delivered at the end of the fair.

A simple Book Fair Summary sheet is completed, noting your sales figure and how you would like to take your commission.

The unsold books are collected from the school, at no cost to the school.

EFTPOS terminals are available on request.

 

 HOW MUCH COMMISSION DOES THE SCHOOL GET?

Commission can be taken in three ways, in BOOKS, in CASH, or a combination of BOOKS AND CASH. Speak to us about how to get the best result for your school.

1. BOOKS

  • We offer your school a book commission of 30% of book fair sales.
  • Commission books can be chosen from the books that are delivered to the school at the time of the Book Fair or from the wide selection available on www.centralbooksuppliers.com.au.
  • Commission books have to be selected during the same year that the Book Fair is held.

2. CASH

  • We offer a cash commission of 18% of total Book Fair sales. This option is only offered to schools that have sales of more than $1000.

3. COMBINATION OF BOOKS AND CASH

  • We can also offer a combined book/cash commission to schools that sell in excess of $1000.
  • We can give you advice on how to achieve the best result for your school.
  •  

SCHOOLS HOSTING A CENTRAL BOOK SUPPLIERS BOOK FAIR FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TERMS 1, 2 OR 4, WILL RECEIVE A BOOK COMMISSION OF 50% OF TOTAL SALES.

 

 ORDERING EXTRA COPIES

  • We send out twice as many books as we expect to sell. This quantity is based on previous book fair sales at your school.
  • Titles that we expect to sell well are supplied in bigger quantities so that ordering can be kept to a minimum.
  • A good range of books will therefore be left towards the end for the late comers.
  • We can usually supply orders for more copies.
  • Orders are delivered at the end of your book fair.
