Batch Payments The system has been designed to help the book trade reduce overheads in the supply chain by improving communications between booksellers and their suppliers. Now organisations of all sizes can benefit from trading electronically. The benefits for booksellers are: * Make a single payment for all your suppliers and save in bank charges, postage cost and time. * View invoices online and print copies as required. * See invoices on the Batch system before delivery for advanced notification that books are on their way.
