Book Jobbers and Suppliers

Jobbers and Suppliers


Book jobbers buy books from the publishers to resell to school libraries at a discount. Advantages to using a jobber are that you create one order opposed to creating an order for each individual publisher. A disadvantage is that you do not always get everything you want, so you have to over-order.
