Our Standing Order Program keeps your collection up to-date with the new editions, annuals and series that you specify. We also notify you of delays in publications, ceased titles, and changes in publisher or publication schedules.
Customization of standing orders such as shipping odd/even editions or every other year is available. The first volume of a new series can be sent on approval. For your convenience, standing orders are shipped and invoiced separately from other orders.
To make sure your standing order is continuing to serve your needs; Matthews will provide reports for review on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and/or yearly basis.
