Anchor Clarifies Terms for Canadian Accounts

Anchor Word Alive joint logoWith Send the Light Distribution winding down their business, Christian stores in Canada need an alternative for publishers not represented here. The Anchor Distributors / Word Alive announcement could not have come at a better time. Some of us have used Anchor before, several of you use them frequently, and for some this might be a new supplier. We reached out to Anchor with some direct questions, but never heard back. The following was an attachment to an email our store simply did not receive, but was forwarded by a Christian Book Shop Talk reader and store manager. Note the line about billing being in Canadian funds. Interesting how that will work or if orders will need to be, by necessity, all fully prepaid.

    From what I understand, it’s the same terms you had with Word Alive. So, 30 day terms, I believe for most.

      Thanks. My point was that with Anchor, things were paid in U.S. dollars by credit card the same day they shipped, which is how the website works. So now they are going to need a blanket conversion rate on each title the way our Canadian suppliers do. The dollar is always changing however, and the time lag between billing and payment could change things, but of course, our domestic suppliers deal with this all the time.
