Invoicing
 
General Information

A final invoice will be issued to you after we have paid the publisher or distributor, or at least when we receive their confirmation that the order has been received and correctly entered. When issuing your invoice, we employ the exchange rate prevailing on the day we pay the publisher or distributor, regardless of when we invoice you. Special requirements may be considered upon request.

It is also possible to delay invoicing you until after the first shipment has been made. Book series volumes are invoiced individually on publication/delivery.

Please contact Nicole Erny for assistance with regard to invoicing.

Advanced-Covering-Invoices (ACI-System)

Many librarians like to prepay subscriptions many months in advance. We offer two possibilities of advanced invoicing with rewarding discounts:

  • 1. Detailed invoice: We will send you a detailed invoice listing all titles individually. This invoice is based on current price information and on exchange rates valid at the time of invoicing. Adjustment invoice(s) will be issued as soon as the publisher's price is known or at an agreed date.

  • 2. 'One-line' Invoice: A single invoice for the estimated total value, without individual titles being listed. A listing of all titles considered for the estimate can be attached to the invoice. Your prepayment is credited to your account, and regular invoices are issued thereafter and balanced against your payment. You will receive regular statements to keep you updated on your credit/debit balance.
Pro-rate reductions apply to both versions and will be credited to your account as soon as we have received your payment. The current discounts are available upon request at journals@libri.ch
