A news release just now from ACCO.


With the continuous changing landscape of our market, external conditions and the need to better service the newsagent channel, we are pleased to advise that effective April 1st 2020 a new team of ACCO Representatives across Australia will be calling directly on newsagents in each state. 

This exciting new venture doesn’t change our relationship with the Newsagent Wholesalers or Buying Groups, this simply gives you a more direct voice and relationship with ACCO Brands. We will assist you in merchandising, improving store layouts, showcasing new products and providing you with an opportunity to purchase our marketing leading brands including Marbig, Artline, Spirax, Colourhide, Stabilo, Maped, Cumberland to name a few. 

Effective 1st April, 2020 all Newsagents can open a direct account with ACCO Brands Australia subject to ACCO Brands General Terms and Conditions of Sale. This includes the option of 30 day payment terms and $550.00 (ex GST) Minimum Order Value. Alternatively, you now have the option of paying via credit card at the time of order placement and be entitled to a reduced Minimum Order Value of only $250.00 (ex GST). The payment via credit card, at the time of order placement will waive the surcharge for ordering under $550.00 (ex GST) – Note surcharge will still apply if the order value is less than $250.00 (ex GST). This facility is only available when you order via our website ( 

As we work together in these unprecedented times, we are pleased to offer you this improved service and continue to provide you with market leading brands, strong products and great customer service.
