What About Our Consignment Program?

Our consignment program is an agreement between you, the author, and W.E. Bookstore, to offer your book for sale in our online store.  By leaving your books with us, you agree to abide by the guidelines below:

 When you leave your books on consignment with us, W.E. Bookstore will:

  • Place your book for sale in the most relevant section in our store.
  • Track sales of your book using our computerized inventory system.
  • Call you when we need more copies.
  • Issue a check after we’ve sold 5 or more copies or at the end of the consignment period.
  • Remove your books from sale after 6 months unless it is continuing to sell well and both you and W.E. Bookstore agree to extend the consignment.

Note: We will contact you at the end of your 6-month consignment period, but it is your responsibility to pick up or pay for the shipping of any unsold books at that time.  Any books left beyond the consignment period will be disposed of by W.E. Bookstore. We will only pay you for books that are sold. Damaged or stolen items are your sole financial responsibility. 

If you would like W.E. Bookstore Online to carry your book on consignment, here’s what you must agree to do:

  • Complete the application
  • Pay W.E. Bookstore a non-refundable admin/ advertisement fee 
  • Leave between 5 and 10 copies for sale at W.E. Bookstore. (Book a drop-off or plan to ship items)
  • Accept standard 60/40 publishing industry terms. (60 author/ 40 W.E. Bookstore)
  • Offer your book at the same retail price through all outlets (including copies you might sell yourself).
  • Include the fact that your book is available at W.E. Bookstore Online in any and all of your marketing and advertising and add a link on your website, if you have one. It is important for you, as the publisher, to remember that marketing is up to you. We market our Bookstore, but you must market your book.
  • Pick up/ pay for the shipping of any unsold copies of your book at the end of the 6-month consignment, understanding that any books left past that time will be disposed of by the bookstore.

After your consignment term is over, if you wish to extend it for an additional six months there is another consignment fee.*

*Authors who have sold ten or more copies during the six-month period will have the re-consignment fee waived.

Note: W.E. Bookstore Online reserves the right to refuse any book offered for consignment deemed unsuitable for sale in the store.
