Gregath can take as much or as little of the load as the customer has budget for. Generally speaking, order fulfillment can be tailored to a given need. A light service package example: excel sheet of individual customers is provided for a “blast” (all books shipped at the same time) shipping through USPS Priority (tracked) mail from $6.00 to $12.00 per address – including actual shipping costs. Customer defined packages will be quoted, but basic per address service fee may be as low as $1.00 per mailed item. Gregath can warehouse all stock, take orders, ship, etc. but this type of service is ongoing, thus the charges are as well.
*Editor’s note – there are lots of options to hiring out this part of the self-published author’s needs. For lower cost alternatives you may wish to check with local organizations that are fund raising. Just remember that today’s customers may by tomorrow’s book. Records need to also be kept well for books that don’t arrive or are damaged, etc.
