CONGRATULATIONS to CLC Wholesale, now live at PubEasy.com. The anticipated news (officially announced March 1st) broke yesterday on facebook, with an initial post in the Christian Authors, Booksellers and Publishers, group, followed by a post from CLC Wholesale themselves on the UKCBD facebook page.
Registered PubEasy users can now check wholesale availability of and place orders for titles from more than 400 Christian publishers and imprints stocked by CLC, including Authentic Media, BRF, Christian Focus, Church House, CLC Publications (of course), Crossway, CWR, DLT, HarperCollins, Lion Hudson — the list goes on, and on — Sovereign World, SPCK, Zondervan…
The PubEasy system, however, is ISBN based: CDs and DVDs are therefore not currently listed, but the (much improved) CLC online shop — clcbookshops.com— is now running from the wholesale warehouse; listings for CDs, DVDs and some other non-ISBN product can be checked there. Orders for these — as well as for all items in the PubEasy catalogue — may be placed in the time-honoured ways by phone or email: in the words of Chris Magee, Head of CLC Wholesale UK, “We are still of course available to be phoned, as we love to talk to our customers.”
IMPROVED TRADE TERMS: CLC Wholesale’s base discount on most items has been increased from 35% to 38%. Trade customers who were already on 38% should now be receiving 40%. This does not apply to Bible packs and other low discount items. The minimum order for carriage paid delivery remains at £50 trade.
