Booksellers: Save Time & Money with Pubeasy

Pubeasy enables booksellers to send their purchase orders electronically, 24/7, reducing the time it takes to process orders while eliminating errors that may occur when placed via email, phone, or fax. By ordering direct from the publisher, booksellers receive a better discount and therefore reduce their cost of goods.

Booksellers can also check current price, availability, and the status of their orders all in one place, without having to contact each of the publisher’s sales representatives, customer service center or website.

The Result: Booksellers and Publishers manage the ordering and receiving process more quickly and with better information while reducing the time and expense spent on routine support issues.

Who Should Use Pubeasy?

Pubeasy is for smaller, newer retailers who have been sourcing their inventory from wholesalers and want to increase their direct ordering without spending additional hours on the phone or tracking down emails. It is also used by larger, established stores who order via Pubnet but still use Pubeasy to check price, availability and order status.

If you can answer “yes” to these questions, then Pubeasy is for you:

  • Do you currently have accounts and are ordering direct from some of your publisher suppliers?
  • Do you want to reduce your cost of inventory by increasing the amount of direct ordering from a wider network of publishers?
  • Do you want to save time by checking the price, availability and status of your orders from multiple publishers at a single web site?

Still not sure if Pubeasy is right for you? Contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Pubnet vs Pubeasy: Should I use both?

Some smaller retailers can satisfy their direct ordering needs with Pubeasy alone. But if you have an EDI capable POS system and want to order from many suppliers, then Pubnet is certainly for you. And, you can also use Pubeasy to check price, availability, and the status of your orders through our secure website. Many retailers use both.
