Ordering from V&L costs clients the same as, and often less than,
ordering from the publisher directly.
V&L charges no service fees, applies no hidden costs, nor requires any
minimum orders - we rely solely on the publishers’ discounts to us. As
dictated by V&L’s “Pricing With Integrity” policy we are required to
always obtain the highest possible discount for all orders and always pass
on the maximum possible discount to customers.
Discounts range from 0 – 30% depending on title and publisher. Additional volume discounts are available on orders of 10 copies or more,
for most titles, and are handled on an individual basis. V&L also honours
all publishers’ special pre-publication discounts/pricing as well as offering
our own. Please contact V&L Customer Service for further information on
the discounts applicable to your specific titles. You may call, fax or e-mail
your request; or simply fill out the “Contact Us” Form.
Clients are charged the publisher’s Canadian Landed List price (the same
total cost clients would incur by ordering directly from the publisher) less
applicable discounts. Discounts are not available only on "net-priced" titles
for which V&L is not provided with a reseller's discount from the
publisher. Such titles most often originate from non-commercial
publishers such as societies, associations, and other non-profit
organizations. Upon request, V&L can notify the client of any such
instances where discounts may not be applicable, thereby allowing the
client to order directly from the publisher if preferred.
As prices from V&L are directly based upon the publishers' Canadian list
price, V&L's prices are subject to changes to the publisher’s price. All
foreign priced items are subject to current exchange rates.
