Some reasons why joining us :
- Central secure storage of all items, this might save lots of space at your home.
- Efficient order-picking as all items are numbered. That way we can easily find them.
- As we have large stocks, orders will in many cases contain many items, this will reduce average expenses and effort for the buyers.
- We have good worldwide shipping contracts.
- When you store your goods at our storages, we offer your items on 3 other EU based selling platforms. Especially CDs will sell better because of that.
- You will not have any packaging and communication-effort anymore. Our staff takes care of that all.
- We will pay you monthly. Please look at the rates further down in this page. Members with sales of over 1000 euros we can pay twice each month.
- Optionally we reduce prices weekly with max. 0.5%. This will keep the sales running.
- Nowadays Discogs passes EU seller information to local customs as part of the VAT regulations. When you store your items at Worldwide-Records we pay all the VAT involved and we cover all businesslike activities. We pay you an amount including VAT (EU VAT margin).
- If you are a Dutch seller in 2020 Dutch KOR rules change significantly. Joining us will lower your total turnover/omzet so you then might be able to stay in the KOR.
- We are registered at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce ( EuRecords )

Here are our EuRecords rates for 2020 and 2021 ( all incl. VAT ) for collections / stocks which we sell for you. These rates are deducted from your monthly sales. All rates are based on actual costs. We have three types of expenses that will be invoiced to you:
- Personnel costs for order-handling 2020 rates ( customer contact, order-handling and picking, cleaning, packaging )
- Variable fee per ordered item.
- Storage expenses
All are explained in more detail now

Personnel costs for order-handling 2020 rates ( customer contact, order-handling and picking, cleaning, packaging )

Second Hand stocks which need some inspection and occasional cleaning or of which we have to put the record behind the sleeve or for which we need to put a standard sleeve around it. For CDs we might need to replace the jewelcase and we might need to clean the disc.This rate is a rate per disc, so a 2LP counts as 2.
- LPs, 12" : Euro 1.69
- CDs / 7" : Euro 0.84

New stocks or external stocks shipped to us bij you cleaned and packed. This rate is a rate per item, so a 2LP counts as 1.
- LPs, 12" : Euro 1.01
- CDs / 7" : Euro 0.67

Variable fee per ordered item.

18% of selling price ( 20% starting January 1 2021 )
This is for:
- Covering the 8% Discogs fees. If Discogs raises this fee, we will also raise our fee. Other platforms have much higher fees, for those platforms we ask a bit more shipping fees to compensate that.
- Covering the paypal fees which can be quite high especially for low priced items as there is a fixed fee part. Besides that we also pay fee on the postage part. On the average paypal fees cost us about 5%
- Rental fees for our packaging centre and usage of packaging materials 2%
- Covering the VAT/BTW which is part of this 18%: 3%
- From January 1 2021 we will add 2% as a reservation for large/unexpeced expenses like new labelwriters or paypal fees going up.
- What remains is being used for EuRecords general and content management activities.

If you keep your stock at home and ship to us twice a week we don't offer your goods on non-discogs platforms because of the extra complex backorder administration involved and for the shorter time margin in which items need to be shipped.

Storage solutions ( rates per month paid in advance for the next month as we need to pay rent as well for the next month ):
A rate per disc, so a 2LP counts as 2.
This is especially suited for stocks up to about 5000 items. We supply shelf space where you can store your goods.
Euro 2 for 100 LPs
Euro 1 for 100 CDs / 7" Singles
Euro 1 for 200 CDs in envelopes jewelcase removed / Cardboard sleeves.

A rate per 1 meter shelf
This works nice of you have items with unusual sizes or when you for example have all CDs stored in envelopes jewelcase removed. We support you a bunch of shelves where you can store your goods.
Euro 2 for a 1 meter cd-height shelf.
Euro 4 for a 1 meter lp-height shelf.

You own storage space
When your stocks grows very large ( more than 20.000 items ), we will ask you to rent your own space in our building so you can manage stocks yourself. In that case we will not charge any storage fees or we will ask you a fee for using the specific storage solution. When you have a very large shop or collection and prefer to manage this yourself at our location with your own access, we can discuss the options. Actually all members with stocks over 20.000 items currently have their own storage solutions.

You keep your items at home and send us a parcel twice a week on monday and thursday
When you are in the Netherlands, you can send a PostNL parcel to our PO Box twice a week on monday and thursday. But that only works when the stock is available exclusively for us, so we are sure that ordered items are available. If you want to try out our services or if you just want to use our services for some months, this might be an option for you. If you want to stop at some moment then you can open your shop again, and we will send you a delete-list to remove the items which were sold in our shop.

Regarding the value of your stock
As a selling collective we store our and your goods in a very good building with fire alarm, burglar alarm ( within 10 minutes a guard is at site ) and electronic locks. We do not insure your goods as insurance companies cannot cope good with our constantly changing stock levels of different member. Besides that valuation is very hard for these kind of mainly second hand goods. Almost all of the current members don't want extra insurance. When insurance is important for you, you need to insure the stock yourself. We are also thinking about an optional basic insurance scheme based on a 1 year discogs net revenue paid in 12 monthly terms, but we are not sure yet how to finance that. We prefer a funding solution supported by the members of our selling collective. We have a rental contract for at least one year in advance, so if for some reason our rental contract/business stops, you have a one year period to pickup your goods.

Regarding the quality of your stock / refund policy
We quite regularly have discussion about selling goods which do not have the right grading. In those cases we might do a partial or full refund depending on the case and the proff supplied. This refund you will find as a correction in the monthly report which we send you. If the monthly refund total is below 3% of the total sales then we handle this without contacting you. When it is above 3% then we will give you feedback about the issues which we have with your stock.
When you bring your goods to store in your storage space, we might do an inspection to check the stated quality.

Some general remarks:

All

We will make an agreement of our cooperation. We will forward your banking data to a payment processor so it can be checked. We pay

Stocks need to be brought to us numbered with removable stickers which you can order and print yourself at the starting number which we supply. Numbering your whole stock is also a complete inventorising job, we then both know that all items are present. This can be a large time consuming job. Goods remain your property and you can do a pickup of your goods within 1 week on request.

You can at every moment see you stock items in our large discogs shop with a specific selection. Please check the member Stock links at the top of this page.

Optionally we will offer your stocks on other selling platforms which increases your sales with about 15%. These external platforms we pay after 1-2 months as processing that data is more complicated, and many platforms have a return policy which we have to take into notice as well.

After we moved your stock to our shop, you get a NearMint Lister account through which you have to enter new items.

We guarantee that the the shop is open at least 90% of all days each year. In the summerholiday and/or around Christmas we might shut down operations. Besides that because of for example covid the closure might be a longer period, but we cannot control that. We have a great crew of 5 people doing the daily operations. We try to be open as much as possible. In 2019 we were closed for only 10 days in september and after that we managed to stay open until now ( October 22). We will close the shops after december 19 for 2 weeks as everybody is already tired because of covid restrictions. When the shop is closed, the storage expenses are still charged as the rent of the space which we hire as selling collective has to be paid.

All conditions stated are subject to change. These conditions were edited for the last time at Novermber 21, 2020.

We all care for the environment but it's a fact that shipping CDs and LPs around the world is not the most environment friendly way to enjoy music. But we do a lot of efforts to reduce environmental damage:
- For The Netherlands we ship all LP parcels by bicycle carrier / natural gas powered cars. We are looking for expanding this to other countries.
- We replace almost all second-hand jewelcases with new jewelcases. The old jewelcases are fully recycled by a plastic recycling company. They melt new products from them. New jewelcases are taken from old CD distrostocks.
- We offer the possibility to remove jewelcases to reduce parcel-weight.
- Shipping one large parcel costs less transportation effort compared to many small parcels, in that way you can also make a difference.
- Most of our own worktravels is done by public transport.
- Extra suggestions are welcome. Does anybody know how/where to recycle vinyl ?
