It’s likely that your subtotal is under our $250 nett/wholesale minimum. Available stock orders under $250 nett/wholesale will be held to merge with future orders and backorders. Orders under $250 nett/wholesale can be released with a small order surcharge of $15.50; however, this will not be an option during checkout. Please contact customer service to arrange the release of your order. You can now pay by credit card upon checkout to receive your order faster, but if you are a direct deposit customer you will need to contact customer service.

No, we don’t have a minimum order quantity per title. You can order single copies of individual titles, but your order will not ship unless it reaches the $250 nett/wholesale minimum.

If you are a direct deposit or 30-day account customer, you should contact customer service to arrange payment as soon as possible, otherwise they will contact you once your order meets the $250 nett/wholesale minimum. If your order is urgent, please contact customer service rather than waiting for them to contact you as it can take 24-48 given the volume of orders at this busy time of year.

This means that we don’t have stock of this title in our warehouse and therefore can’t dispatch immediately, and we will need to order your stock from the publisher. If the title is in stock with the Australian publisher, we will receive the stock within 4-6 working days to dispatch onwards to you. Many titles we source come from international publishers, however, and can take 10-12 weeks to arrive. Customer service can provide you with a more accurate timeframe so we encourage you to contact them before placing your order if your order is urgent.

A back order is a record of orders that you place that we cannot immediately fulfil. Any titles that cannot be supplied, either because they’re temporarily unavailable or not yet published, will automatically become a backorder and will be supplied when they become available and your order value has reached the $250 nett/wholesale minimum. You can check your backorders on your account page.

If your order does not reach the minimum order of $250, we can wait for items on your back order to be received in to our warehouse and then send your order to you OR you can pay an additional freight charge of $15.50 to receive your order straight away.

Once you are logged in, simply add titles to cart. Once you’ve reached the minimum 250 nett, you are able to proceed with payment. It is recommended that you contact customer service and set your account as credit card on file.

Items not in stock when your order is placed are requested from the Publisher. As we deal with many publishers and suppliers, ordered items on your back list are unlikely to be received at the same time.

In general:

Australian Publishers: If the item is in stock at the publisher, it can take up to two weeks for stock to arrive at our warehouse. If the item is not in stock at the publisher, it will be sent when they receive the stock. This time can vary depending on factors beyond Brumby Sunstate’s control such as reprinting runs. Customer Service may be able to provide an estimated date so please call the office. If the item is out of print we will not be able to supply it to you.

International Publishers: Currently, international freight delays are lengthy. We are waiting between three and six months for stock to arrive. Any items on your back order that are unable to be fulfilled after six months are deleted.

Freight charges depend on your location. Freight cost will be displayed at check out. Freight is payable on every order.

You can request an application form to become a 30-day account once you have had six transactions within a 12 month period.
