I feel for the newsagent who had their supply of Franchising magazine bumped from one copy an issue to eleven copies of the latest issue – on the back of zero sales for each of the last eight issues. Click on the image to see for yourself.
I’m sure that this bump from one copy to eleven copies is a mistake by Network Services. The challenge is the cost to the newsagent. The time it will take to resolve, the frustration and, if it was a full copy return, the freight cost. If it’s a topped return then pity the publisher having their product topped and trashed because of a supply mistake.
With Networking having all the data it needs mistakes like this should not happen. Indeed, this newssgent should not be down to get any stock of this title given its long-term zero sales in this business.
