We sell our books through our website and through our distribution partner, Booktopia. If you are a bookseller and needing event stock please email us to arrange. Booksellers also have the option to create an account with us and order straight through our website. All stock, other than event stock, is firm sale.
Bad Apple Press and Booktopia
We are excited to have Booktopia as our distribution partner. We realise that for some booksellers this might seem like a hurdle, as Booktopia makes up part of the competition. However, we believe that those hurdles can be overcome.
Here is why we went with Booktopia over other distributors:
- Their enthusiasm for books – sounds a bit of a cliche, right? But Sam and I spent many days visiting different distributors and Booktopia were by far the most enthusiastic about where Australian publishing could go.
- They are Australian owned and operated, right down to the customer service and IT teams.
- They are committed to growing the distribution service for booksellers and publishers.
- Their reach and size allows for booksellers to get great deals on books and shipping costs.
- They are happy to store titles. This means that our stories have more longevity, which is great news for our authors.
Here is what Booktopia say about their distribution services.
BPS benefits to book retailers:
- BPS offers book retailers between 40%-45% discount on RRP for books we distribute.
- As a BPS customer, you also get 15% discount on the sale price of any other book in the Booktopia range.
- No minimum order quantity or small order surcharges.
- Free shipping for orders over $300. A flat rate of $6.95 for orders under $300.
- Right now, Booktopia has a special offer to members of the Australian Booksellers Association (ABA). They get FREE SHIPPING on all orders until the end of June.
How to become a customer and place an order
Simply create a regular Booktopia account here if the bookstore doesn’t already have one.
Then email firstname.lastname@example.org using the same email address and we’ll enable this account to receive Retailer benefits. If the store is a member of the ABA, please let us know in your email and we’ll enable the Free Shipping offer at the same time.
You can then enjoy all the benefits listed above.
