Re: New Publishing Company

Judging by the pricing in auctions of similar size books listed by Chandos on Evilbay, the shipping cost of the Hs 129 book would probably be around £16-18.

that's just something we all have to live with I'm afraid. If collectors can afford £50+ for a book, generally they are fine with the shipping costs. Obviously I won't know the final shipping costs until the book is finished, but if the old edition is anything to go by it'll be 2kg+

As mentioned, with luck we'll also have a U.S. distributor - I think that'll be essential.

Any copy of the book can be sent with purchases from my monthly eBay auctions and I am considering whether or not to offer copies through eBay.

Re: New Publishing Company

Royal Mail offers quite fair airmail shipping rates with "printed papers" rate.

Re: New Publishing Company

There’s one rate for everything. Depending on weight. Anything under 2kg goes by Royal Mail

Re: New Publishing Company

For what it's worth - perhaps consider Lela Press as another distributor. The French post still keeps the low rates for printed papers, which is one of the reasons I frequently buy from them.
Otherwise, Amazon and their marketplace sellers ship similar books for about £8 (+£4 for each another book) - are they doing this below the real cost?

Re: New Publishing Company

thanks, we are considering all options...

Amazon can undercut other companies because their profit for the last three months of 2017 was $1.9 billion, their 11th straight quarterly profit

Re: New Publishing Company

Amazon created a huge presence in the book market by undercutting bookstores. And people want to save money. Amazon's strategy was simple: buy books in bulk at 50% off and sell them from 20 to 30% off. The consumer saves money and amazon pockets the difference. Then it diversified into other things. Amazon is on its way to becoming a trillion dollar company. Apple just hit the trillion mark.

Re: New Publishing Company

Lela Presse sells books from Erik Mombeeck, Axel Urbanke, Red Kite, MMP, Kagero, Japo, Eagle Editions and of course many French books. I think that tell they are good distributor if all these people/company work with them, but see yourself with them in time.
