Selling Books

Omegix' personal credit card is on file with Enjoy the City, so if you don't send them the money you raised, Omegix comes at your kneecaps.

You can order as many or as little books as you desire.

You are responsible for 75% of the books you receive. You can return up to 25% of the books you request from Enjoy the City, but they have to be undamaged, You have to pay for the return shipping.

How I personally did it was I got verbal commitments from people, and then ordered that amount plus 1 or 2 books to sell to random people. Once I sold them, I cut a check to Enjoy the City and Makers Local, each getting half of the profits.

I also went ahead and paid Enjoy the City for all the books I requested because I knew I didn't want to deal with mailing shit back. I think that "return 25% of the books" thing is really for schools selling hundreds of these things at a time.

Nice perk: you get 1 free book for every 5 you sell. Not really sure how this works yet, cause I paid them for 7 books. Maybe I was only supposed to pay them for 6? I'll call and find out.

  1. Determine how many books you want
  2. Contact Omegix and he'll order them. They should arrive to omegix' place within 3 days.
  3. Omegix will arrange to get them to you
