For Retail Accounts

From one small business to another

Godine welcomes direct orders from book buyers and retail accounts. Book buyers should contact our customer service center in Jaffrey, New Hampshire by email, phone, or fax.

  • Single-title order: 30% (+ $4.00 shipping, pre-paid only)
  • 2–4 items: 40% (+ $5.00 shipping, pre-paid only)
  • 5–25 items: 44%
  • 26 items and up: 46%
  • Non-returnable: 50% (5 items or more)

All Black Sparrow Books combine with Godine titles for discounts. Sale prices on are for individual consumers only and cannot be combined with retail trade discounts. Retailers may purchase books at sale prices, but only on a non-returnable basis; such purchases will not count toward retail trade discount totals.

All invoices are net 30 days. Terms are subject to change.

Current Returns Policy

As of August 4, 2014

Permission to return books must be acquired from our customer service center, and full shipping label required: call, fax, or write to our New Hampshire address. No returns accepted at our Boston address. Returns will not be accepted if there are past due invoices on your account.

We will only accept for credit books purchased within the past two years: returns not accompanied by invoice information will be credited at 50%. Returned books must be in print and in saleable condition: stickered books are ineligible for credit. No cash refunds (merchandise credit only).

Credit memos are valid for two years from date of issue, and are applied automatically to open balances on monthly statements. Any account whose annual returns exceed 30% will automatically convert to 50% non-returnable status.
