Consignment Agreement
You are signifying your agreement to the terms outlined below when you do any one of the following: submit this form, send your item(s) to The Den to be placed on the sales floor (via drop off or mail shipment), or accept payment from The Den for items that were sold during the previous month.

ELIGIBLE BOOKS

The Den will accept on consignment any books that belong to the consignee as the owner of the copyright or the original creator of that book. If the author uses a pen name that is not the same as their legal name, The Den may request that other proof be shown that the author penned the content of the book. Any books that are stolen or for which the potential consignee cannot provide proof of authorship may be rejected.

DELIVERY

After this form is submitted, items may be dropped off at The Den during normal business hours. If the items need to be dropped off outside of normal business hours, the vendor may email Publish@VoloPressBooks.com in order to make other arrangements. Vendors should also email a notice that items have been shipped and include a tracking number for the shipment. Volo Press and The Den are not responsible for merchandise mishandled, lost, or stolen by mail carriers.

REPLENISHMENT

Vendors will be notified via email when their books have sold out. As The Den is able, vendors will be notified when they have only one item (of a group) left in stock so that they can give The Den more copies to put on the sales floor. Any opportunities for sales missed because the vendor's product was out of stock is the responsibility of the vendor. Vendors are encouraged to stop in and physically check on their inventory periodically.

PAYMENT


The Den will keep 40% of the profit from each sale of the vendor's items. Profit consists of the sale price less the tax rate in The Den's area (currently 8% in Tucker, Georgia). For example, a handmade journal that sells for $25.00 creates a profit of $23.00. 40% of $23.00 is $9.20 (to The Den). The remaining $13.80 would go to the vendor.

The Den will make payments available to vendors on or before the fifth business day of each month. After your items are received, you will be added to an email list especially for authors with items being sold at The Den. An email will be sent out at the beginning of each month informing vendor's of who will have payments disbursed to them or waiting for them at The Den for pickup (if they chose that disbursement format).

The Den will be closed on the following holidays and observances (when they fall on a normal business day): New Year's Day, MLK Day, George Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Eve, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve.

For vendor's who opt for Zelle or CashApp payments, their funds will be electronically delivered to their bank on or before the fifth business day of the month. The Den has no control over when those funds will be available for use. Contact your banking institution's customer service line to check funds availability policies.

PREMIUM PLACEMENT

Vendors who choose to receive premium placement at The Den will be charged $30 per month. This payment may be submitted in cash or electronically through the VoloPressBooks.com site. Premium placement means that the author will receive 90% of the profits from each sale for that item (example: $25.00 sales price = $23.00 profit = $20.70 to the vendor and $2.30 to The Den).

Premium placement fees must be paid by the 25th day of the previous month. If a payment is made between the 25th and the end of the month, the fee is increased by $5 per day late ($30 on the 25th, $35 on the 26th, $40 on the 27th on up to $60 on the 31st).

Premium placement benefits include: 90% of profits from vendor product sales, dedicated shelf space, cover facing customers, discount requirement status (as applicable), bar code cards, web sales via VoloPressBooks.com, featured social media posts all throughout the month, dedicated sales link in Volo Press newsletter. These services are meant to be a single component of an vendor's overall marketing strategy. No guarantees can or will be made regarding how much of a boost in sales vendor items may receive from purchasing these services.

TERMINATION
Item placement at The Den is indefinite by default. If a vendor would like to impose a time limit, they may do so by retrieving their itemd when they no longer want them offered for sale at The Den. If management deems that an item should be removed from The Den shelves for any reason, they will remove the product and notify the vendor.
