NEIBA is proud to unveil a new program that will help booksellers in the seasonal order process.
Publisher Advocate will give booksellers who don’t see reps or speak with phone sales, access to marked-up Edelweiss catalogs
Create an Edelweiss account if you don’t already have one. (See Edelweiss tips below)
Email Nan@neba.org and say which catalogs you want to receive. (See below for the list of publishers participating.)
Sit back and wait for them to arrive in your mailbox.
Review the marked-up catalogs when they arrive, and make buying decisions based on the experience and knowledge provided by the house or telesales rep.
Place your order through your normal channels, whether direct or through a wholesaler.
Only sign-up for catalogs that you don’t receive from a house rep or inside sales. Orders must be placed through your normal channel. The reps providing the marked-up catalogs will not be placing the order. (So don’t hit the “place order now” button on the marked up catalogs.)

Are there any catalogs you would like to receive that aren’t on this list? We’ll be happy to contact the publisher for you. Email email@example.com.
Fine Print: This program is open to any bookstore in the NEIBA region, but you have to be a NEIBA member.
There are many stores missing out on the benefits of marked-up catalogs. That translates into lost sales for publishers and booksellers.
We need reps to volunteer to send their mark-up catalogs to underserved bookstores throughout our region. We’d also like reps (field, inhouse) with an eye for collections to do the same. We would provide you with the emails of the stores, and sending the catalogs is the only obligation you have. Orders would be handled in whatever manner is in place for each individual stores.
Email Nan@neba.org to volunteer.
