1. What is a book box?
A book box is a portable display unit that can be placed in a business or service provider to sell books. Books are not taken from the display unit but can be purchased online from hopebooks.com.au and delivered to the customer’s address. The book box consists of four key elements:
- The wooden display unit which is sent as a flat pack with simple instructions to assemble
- Stickers for the display unit – one for the top backing board and another for the front board
- Special stickers that need to be applied to the books
- Books to be featured in the display unit – you will need to order those from hopeshop.com
2. How do I get a book box?
Book boxes can be purchased right here on this page. We are offering up to 4 book boxes free for a limited time to registered IBDs, use code BOX4FREE at checkout. Additional units can be purchased for $100.
3. Where do I buy books from to put in my book box?
4. How do books get sent out to customers?
When a customer purchases a book using the QR code on the book, Signs Publishing will process and dispatch the book directly to the customer. The IBD does not need to do anything in connection to the ordering and dispatch of the book, it is all managed through the the hopebooks.com.au ecommerce site.
5. How do customers purchase a book?
After choosing the book they wish to purchase, the customer scans the QR code on the book which takes them to hopebooks.com.au
The customer adds the items they wish to purchase to their cart and completes the checkout process. This includes entering their delivery address and paying for the books by one of the payment options available. The customers purchase will be then sent directly to the address they have provided.
6. Where can I place my book box?
Think about the type of person who might enjoy the books that will be featured. The next question to guide you is then to think about where these people might be reached. This might include waiting rooms for doctors and other medical professional or places such as reception areas for a small business. Gain approval from the venue you wish to place the book box in. Try approaching people you know who have businesses that have people visiting on a regular basis.
7. What commission do I receive and how do I get it?
Refer to the IBD Agreement to trade for full terms and conditions. During the term of the e-commerce arrangement, Adventist Media will pay the IBD a commission in relation to any website sales that include the promotion code of the IBD; and any website sales by a customer where that customer previously used the promotion code of the IBD provided that at the time of the sale. The IBD is an active IBD and has purchased product from Adventist Media within the past quarter; and the customer is not associated with any other independent book distributor of Adventist Media more recently than the IBD. For the purposes of the above clause, commission means the product profit margin on the product sale price after all expenses have been deducted as calculated by Adventist Media. Expenses include, but are not limited to, product wholesale costs, product discounts (as allowed by Adventist Media at its sole discretion), freight, picking and packing fee, e-commerce processing charges, bank fees, any direct costs that can be attributed to the sale and a $0.50 contribution per order to future marketing collateral. In the event of any commission producing sale being refunded to a customer by Adventist Media, any commission paid or payable to the IBD may be reversed by Adventist Media. The commission will be paid quarterly to the IBD by way of Hope Shop credit upon accumulated commission exceeding $100 in amount. The credit cannot be transferred or exchanged for cash.
8. What incentive can I provide to help a business stock my book box?
You may nominate that 10% of book sales comission from a book box goes to a cause that might help a business adopt a book box. Please refer to the agreement to trade for how commission is calculated. Causes might include the social fund of that business, a local or national charity, or a project the business wishes to support. You do not need to offer this incentive. If you do offer this incentive, this amount is deducted from the commission you earn from books sold from that book box. If you choose to do this, you must register this promotion at the Literature Ministry Book Box promo page. Please note that these commission payments to partners will be made once a quarter to the businesses bank account.
9. How long should I leave a book box in a business for?
As a guide, allow a minimum of a month for the book box placement and then review the effectiveness of that box after that time. Please take into consideration the needs of the business you are locating the box in. They may wish for a shorter trial.
10. Can I pick which books to offer?
Yes. We have a range of books available. However, think about the type of person who will most likely be at the location of your book box. Pick books that will be of value to this person. For example, books from the food & drink and lifestyle categories at a doctor’s waiting room.

11. Will I get access to analytics?
Yes. Our book boxes are equipped with unique QR codes that include UTM fields. This allows for tracking and analytics. Adventist Media is even able to attribute sales to website visits first created by the book boxes. So, even if a customer doesn’t purchase a product on the day they scanned the QR code, but do at a later date, we can still attribute the sale to you. Adventist Media can provide a summary report each month of the sales made from the book boxes allocated to you.
12. What happens if someone steals a book?
Please chose carefully where you place the book box to minimise theft. The book box is the sole responsibility of the IBD, any book stolen or damaged from the book box is the responsibility of the IBD.
1. Assemble your book box
2. Add the two large stickers to your book box
The book box comes with two large stickers – one for the backing board at the top of the book box and one for the front board at the bottom of the box (see image). Wipe these areas to ensure they are free of dust.
It is important to place the stickers as shown as they are two different sizes.
The peel-off backing on the stickers is in three strips. Just peel off one strip to initially place your sticker in the correct position, ensuring it aligns with the edges of the book box. Then proceed to peel off the other two strips to securely adhere your stickers.
3. Add the book stickers to the books you will place in your book box
It is important to check that the right sticker is being applied to each book. You can simply check this by matching the book name with the name on the sticker.
If you have more than one book box, it is important not to mix these stickers. The sticker contains a B code e.g., B1 which denotes the book box number. A book box should have all the same B codes.
It is best to generally apply these stickers to the front top right corner of the book cover, however on some books this may hide too much of the book title so in that case try to find a clearer position. Just make sure the sticker can be seen on the book once it is placed in the book box (see image).
