Bookseller's Resources

SPD discourages booksellers from ordering from SPD's website since reseller's discounts are not currently available from the site. Please establish an account with us and then send us your order(s) by email, fax, phone or EDI.

Overstock Returns

Returns can be made within one year of paid purchase without prior authorization for credit against future purchases. Boxes must be securely packed, labelled "returns," and include a packing slip with customer's claim number and date of return for reference. 

Customers providing invoice numbers, purchase discounts and purchase dates will be credited at the purchase price. All other returns will be credited at 45% off the retail price. 

No credit will be issued for titles not purchased from SPD, nor for returns in unsaleable condition (shopworn, stickered, sticker-marked, or damaged in transit). No credit will be issued for books sold at a non-returnable discount. Returns cannot be accepted for items from unpaid invoices. Titles ineligible for credit will be returned upon customer's request and at their expense.

Credits are good for one year from the date of issue.  SPD does not issue refunds under any circumstances; credit only.
