We have prepared advice for retail newsagents and home delivery newsagents for handling the cover price increase to $2.00 for the Sunday Mail in South Australia from July 3, 2011. Our newsagency software enables the easy handling of this price change so that newsagents can save time on the work involved in handling this change.
Non-Home Delivery agents:
Change the Retail price of the Sunday item on 3/7/11. You can either do this in the Stock Screen, or by scanning the Sunday Mail into Point of Sale, then pressing Esc then Delete on the keyboard, and setting the new price to $2.00.
Home Delivery agents:
Our advice in this case is the same as a few months ago when the Saturday Advertiser increased. Our recommended setup is for the Sunday Mail to be set up as the Sunday edition of the Advertiser in our Retailer newsagency software (ie. in the Stock Screen, look up the main Advertiser item, and the Sunday Mail barcode should be in the Sunday field). If this is your setup, please simply change Sunday’s Retail price in the 7-day grid to $2.00 and the Sell 2 price to $1.80.
Our Help Desk team can assist with any queries from newsagents in handling this price change. We’d be glad to help.
