Preferred Book Vendor: GOBI

About GOBI (formerly YBP)

Transportation Surcharge Clarification

In case any Alliance member encounters a “Transportation” or “Fuel” surcharge on an invoice for print books, please note that the Alliance is exempt from such charges and that a credit will be issued. If you have a surcharge added to an invoice, please contact your GOBI account representative to have the amount credited.
