Cheaper in Dozens aims to promote and supply biblically based resources in higher-volume quantities at affordable prices, and to encourage people to read and live transformed lives to the glory of God.
Q: You seem to be a new operation. Why should I buy from you?
A: That's a great question! Our intention is to be a supply channel to you for sound, high-quality Christian literature and resources. We do not knowingly list or supply any items that we consider would not in one way or another glorify God, be unfaithful to the gospel of His grace, or not be of help to His people in the advance of the historic Christian faith.
Q. You seem to offer an unusual discount structure. What underlies this?
A. We operate on the principle that buying in higher volume makes better economic sense. If you are buying for a church, the chances are there are many people who want to get a copy of the same book. And, even if you only want one book, well, there is still a small discount and free shipping. So why wouldn't you want to get all your books from Cheaper in Dozens?
Q. I would like to mix and match titles to get to twelve or more; is this possible?
A. Our model requires that, to achieve the discount for the number of copies of a book, it has to be counted on a per-title basis, so the discount breaks apply to each title, and not to a range of titles.
Q. How do you check your books for biblical faithfulness?
A. We have secured good relationships with reliable publishers who are committed to a robust editorial and pastoral model in their publication philosophy. And we consult with mature Christians in areas where we may have concern over the trustworthiness or usefulness of particular resources.
Q. I love this model, but you don't seem to have every single book that I might like to purchase. Can you help me to purchase resources that you do not list?
A. We are working on the range of publications all the time, so please check in with us again to see if the item is listed. As far as special orders are concerned, they are treated on an ad hoc basis. Email us, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have a particular request.
Q. How long does it take to receive an order?
A. Your shipment is dispatched to you directly from the publisher of the book. Therefore, if your order includes titles from different publishers, you may expect to receive more than one package.
Q. Another vendor is offering a book at a lower price than I can buy it from you. Do you ever negotiate your prices with your customers?
A. We love negotiating! If your order is for above 250 of a unit, and is a book (not a booklet), let us have sight of your quote or advertisement, and we'll see what we can do!
