Raincoast Announces a New Freight Plan

by Dan
News / July 21, 2011

Effective immediately, Raincoast has dropped the free shipping minimum for book retailers from $400 to $250 net invoice value. Note that this minimum is tied to INVOICE value, not ORDER value and that RaincoastPublishers Group Canada and Book Express orders consolidate to meet this minimum.

Booksellers need not save their orders to meet the $250 free freight minimum. Simply call Raincoast customer service at 1-800-663-5714 or 604-448-7100 and ask that your account be set to a $250 ship minimum threshold. We will take care of the rest.

Please note that the freight minimum is not to be confused with the minimum order for regular discount, which remains at $250 retail. 

Raincoast Book Distribution is made up of two full-service sales and marketing distribution divisions; Raincoast Books in Vancouver and Publishers Group Canada in Toronto, along with Book Express, a wholesale division that drives our customer service standard. Our benchmark is same day shipping for all orders received by 11:00AM. Rain or shine.
