NAIBA Position Statement

NAIBA expects every publisher to respect the relationships between the local bookseller and members of their community. NAIBA opposes any publisher’s decision to offer books directly to consumers below the prices it charges its bookseller customers.

NAIBA expects every publisher to respect the relationships between the local bookseller and members of their community. When a publisher offers direct special sales at deep below-cost discount, it damages the publisher’s historic partnership with local booksellers. NAIBA expects every publisher to develop policies that emphasize directing special sales to local independents.
