Newsagents want change in magazine distribution arrangements

The survey I launched 24 hours ago seeking to understand the attitude of newsagents should magazine supply arrangements not change received over 150 responses:

What change do I want? It is simple, really. I want magazines supplied on terms at least equal to those of my main competitor, supermarkets.

  • I want to eliminate most of the arrival and return data work.
  • I want to pay only for what I sell.
  • I want electronic invoice access to be free.
  • I want reports of list or damaged supply to lodged electronically and always accepted.

The current model disadvantages newsagents. Unless there is change, yes, I am likely to reduce my commitment to magazines.
