They supply on usual book trade terms. You must order from them directly.
However due to illegal threats made by the Victorian Attorney General to various book sellers, we will supply urgent orders to the book trade of the books "Victoria Police Corruption" and "Victoria Police Corruption - 2"
Persons ordering on behalf of public libraries and other institutions should note our ABN is 84007395048 - for GST purposesWe do not give any trade or special discounts except on the terms as indicated below, unless the person or company is a distributor of one or more titles (see below).
In the past underpaid amounts resulted in books being sent with invoices for the difference, but we found that most were not paid. As a result all underpayments will be sent a single notification of insufficient payment only and no books will be shipped until full payment is received. If non-cash payment is made then it will be returned at time of notification. Cash will be retained pending payment of balance and if none received a cheque for same will be remitted to the payee after a reasonable time frame.
For those who wish to become 'distributors' for Kotabi titles and/or qulaify for 'trade discounts', the terms and conditions are as follows:-
A 40% reduction in price, plus we pay freight to any part of Australia on the following terms and conditions. The terms of trade are as follows:-
Minimum order ten copies (this may be of one or more titles, so long
as a total of ten books or more makes up the order).
All are on a FIRM SALE basis.
No discounting of retail price ($33.00 Taxi,Taxi-2,Victoria Police Corruption and Victoria Police Corruption - 2, $27.50 for Smuggled-2, $22.00 for Smuggled and The Hoser Files) for at least twelve months after receipt of books.
Payment BEFORE dispatch (this policy has been adopted due to an accumulation of bad debts totalling in excess of $20,000 Australian dollars).
Overseas orders are on the same terms as above except that the minimum quantity is 40 books, although again this minimum may be of any or all titles.
Material from all books has been used in mainstream news reports and the like and we find shops that stock these titles have trouble meeting ongoing demand.
The books (Smuggled and Smuggled-2) have already had wide publicity and we have already moved large quantities. Likewise for Victoria Police Corruption and Victoria Police Corruption - 2. This in spite of illegal efforts to prevent sales, including numerous failed defamation writs.
NO KOTABI BOOKS ARE BANNED AT PRESENT AND ANY STATEMENTS TO THE CONTRARY ARE ILLEGAL. ALL EARLIER BANS HAVE NOW BEEN LIFTED OR ARE ILLEGAL.
Delivery time lag is usually less than two weeks, as orders are usually packed and posted within 48 hours of receipt. If you wish to place orders, they must be on the above terms, or we will not ship books - no exceptions. For orders made, please allow up to 28 days for delivery, before making inquiries if books are not received.
