Retail Transaction Fee
This fee covers the cost of credit card transactions, invoicing, and payment processing. Most of our publishing packages involve a 30% service fee or $3.00 per order (whichever is greater) for each net retail purchase. Some publishing packages offer reduced rates for fulfillment. Call us for a specific price for your publishing package. Shipping charges added to retail invoices are paid by the retail customer and are retained by Selah.

  • Retail sale is defined as any purchase, whether discounted or not.
  • Net sale is defined as the dollar amount of the sale on the invoice, less all expenses, including taxes and assessments payable with respect to freight,
    shipping, and postage.

RETAIL EXAMPLE
A $10 book at retail yields a net sale of $10.00. We charge you $3.00 (the 30% charge). Your total revenue for this type of sale is $7.00.

Distributor/Bookstore Transaction Fee
This fee covers the cost of credit card transactions, invoicing, and payment processing. Most of our publishing packages involve a 20% service fee or $3.00 per order (whichever is greater) for orders less than $15.00 of the net wholesale purchase. Reduced rates for fulfillment are available. Call us for a specific price on your publishing package.

  • Wholesale transactions are defined as purchases by resellers, bookstores, or ministries that purchase for the purpose of resale. Discounts range from 25%60%, depending on the transaction type.
  • Net sale is defined as the dollar amount of the sale on the invoice, less all expenses, including taxes and assessments payable with respect to freight, shipping, and postage.

BOOKSTORE EXAMPLE
Many bookstores order small quantities. These purchases are normally sold at a 30% discount for a quantity of 4. So four $10 books sold at a 30% discount yield a net sale of $28.00. Our fee is $5.60 (the 20% charge) to pay the marketing consultant, the phone operators, and the personnel who operate the fulfillment warehouse. Your total revenue is then $22.40, or $5.60 per book. In the event that the net sale is less than $15.00, the fee is $3.00 per transaction.

DISTRIBUTOR EXAMPLE
Four $10 books sold at a 55% discount to a wholesaler/distributor yield a net sale of $18.00. Our fee is $3.60 (the 20% charge) to pay the marketing consultant, the phone operators, and the personnel who operate the fulfillment warehouse. Your total revenue is then $14.40, or $3.60 per book. In the event that the net sale is less than $15.00, the fee is $3.00 per transaction.

The Bottom Line on Fulfillment
Selah's fulfillment services are provided solely as an agent for fulfilling orders you generate though your own publicity efforts and marketing strategies. We do not advertise or promote your book unless those additional services have been specifically contracted. Although we do everything we can, Selah does not guarantee or promise the success of your book.
