Sourcebooks Unveils New Indie Bookstore Rebate Program
Sourcebooks is changing its independent bookstore co-op model to a rebate program, effective immediately. The new Books Change Lives Indie Co-op Program gives bookstores the opportunity to receive a rebate on the total number of books ordered in the form of a quarterly credit to their account. The retail rebate is 4 % on net sales, and will be based on sales from the previous year. Booksellers will have to provide proof that their store supported a Sourcebooks title in one of several ways throughout the quarter—examples include an event, a newsletter review, a social media post— and have a quick account review with a Sourcebooks employee or their sales representative. Previously, the Sourcebooks co‐op program assigned a dollar value to specific activities and the bookstore would have to create a new claim for each activity.
