Paper Pocket/Universal Magazines Pty Ltd have sent a kind reminder for anyone wishing to place an order for their 2019 Paper Pocket Calendars. They have combined all calendars, both Licensed & Australiana on the one form. All calendars will be distributed by G&G once again & billed on their December statement for payment in January 2019.
Deliveries are set for the first & third weeks of August with ‘Top Ups’ available in the first week of November.
All will be billed out at 60% commission & rebates will come directly from Universal in the form of a cheque for Newsagents who qualify for 70% or 75% commission calendar orders. 70% commission will be given to Newsagents who order a total of 100-199 calendars & 75% commission for orders over 200 calendars.
Osie is happy to do any financial scenarios for you to compare profit return on Firm Sale v Sale or Return just phone him on 0423 613 741.
This is an example of what a financial model comparing the two options would look like.
SALE OR RETURN
Let’s say you received 100 calendars & sold 50 at full price of $19.95 & then returned the remaining 50 for credit.
At 40% commission sale or return you would make $7.98 on each calendar sold.
Selling 50 means your total profit would be $399.00.
If you order 100 calendars at Firm Sale your commission is 70%, unit cost is $5.985, so your total investment is $598.50.
If you sold 50 at full price of $19.95, your income is $997.50, take away the cost price & your profit is $399.
The benefit of Firm Sale is you still have 50 calendars left over & can sell for what you like in January & February.
Our histories show some 45% of people buy calendars in the New Year.
If you were to reduce the price & sell 25 at $9.95 for January & then sell another 15 at $5.00 in February, you would have an extra $323.75 or 81% increase in profit.
You have 10 left over to do with whatever you like, donate to local schools, give to staff, good customers, whatever.
