IP sells directly to Library and School Suppliers in Australia and overseas through IP Sales.

Our terms and conditions of sale are outlined here. By placing an order with IP Sales, the Supplier agrees to accept the terms and conditions outlined below.

All orders are subject to discounts, freight charges, surcharges, returns provisions and payment deadlines.

Discounts

On average, IP offers a 40% discount off RRP to Suppliers to libraries and schools on minimum orders of AU$165 (GST-inclusive). This discount is negotiable, depending on the volume of orders received from the Supplier over a given period and on whether the Supplier can demonstrate value-adding via promotion of IP titles in catalogues, rep visits, etc.

Freight Charges

IP pays freight on consolidated orders of $165 or more to an Australian address. IP charges freight at Australian Post rates + a handling charge of AU$5 to a foreign address.

IP does not pay freight on returns. All stock that has been authorised for return must be shipped FIS.

Surcharges

Small order surcharges reduce the discount to 30% for orders less than $165. Upon the Supplier's request, IP can hold orders until they reach the minimum of $165 and then provide the standard discount. However, if the Supplier requires urgent filling of an order, a 30% discount will apply.

IP charges freight at Oz Post rates + AU$3.50 handling per order.

Returns Provision

All returns MUST be pre-authorised and shipped FIS.

Stock that is returned without written authority will NOT be credited to the Supplier's account.

To receive a credit, the Supplier must apply for authorisation to return WITHIN SIX MONTHS of the IP invoice date. Goods returned without authority after six months will not be credited to the Supplier's account.

All returns will be examined for damage upon receipt. Damaged stock will not receive credit. IP takes no responsibility for damage due to third party handling while in transit to store.

Accepted returns are credited to the Supplier's account. No refunds are issued.

Payment Deadlines

IP expects prompt payment of all accounts by the end of month following the month of invoice. A Supplier who misses this deadline will be sent a reminder. If the amount owing is not paid by the end of the following month, a new invoice will be issued with a service charge of 1% of the invoiced amount, or a minimum of $11 (GST-inclusive) added to the balance for each month the payment is overdue. Once the payment is overdue by 90 days or more, the Supplier will be put on a payment-in-advance basis, and no further stock will be supplied until the amount owing from the reissued invoice has been paid in full, including all service charges.

Payment by EFT is preferred. Australian Suppliers can pay to our Suncorp Account 161114670; BSB 484-799 in the name of Interactive Publications. Foreign Suppliers should contact us to make suitable arrangements for payment.
