Thank you for your interest in selling your LDS books to LDSBookNook.com It might, however, make more sense for you to offer them on consignment on my site. You would make more money, without giving up the freedom of maintaining ownership of the books.
Benefits of Consignment
I charge only a $5.00 per book set-up fee (to create the graphics, set-up the database entry, and for sales administration), payable in advance. When the books are sold on my site my commission is based on a sliding scale based on the selling price and the amount of time you wish to offer them exclusively on my site, the consignment period:
I would keep 50% of the selling price if you agree to make them available on my site for up to 3 months.
I would keep 25% of the selling price if you agree to make them available on my site for 3 months or longer.
I would keep 20% of the selling price if you agree to make them available on my site for 4 months or longer.
I would keep 15% of the selling price if you agree to make them available on my site for 6 months or longer.
I would keep 12% of the selling price if you agree to make them available on my site for 12 months or longer.
If I sell them on my site, I would deduct the $5.00 per book set-up fee from my commission. However, if you were to sell them some other way, then I would keep the $5.00 per book set-up fee.
I would establish the pricing of the books; however, you may establish a minimum amount you would want for the books.
For inventory control, I keep consigned books (logically) in a separate warehouse. I would need to have you ship the books to me pre-paid shipping. I'll pay the shipping to the customer if sold through my site. If you sell them during the period of the consignment agreement some other way than through my site, then you would pay the shipping for me to return the books to you. If at the end of the consignment period I have not sold the books, then I'll contact you about returning the books to you. If you wish me to return the books, and not extend the consignment period, I'll pay the shipping to return the books to you.
