hello, when we send out books we have bound do we hold ownership until paid ?
and if so what are the proper terms to use
Thank you for your question.
You don't have ownership of the books, nor indeed the binding materials as these have been incorporated into the item. However you do have a lien on a book until you are paid for your work. If you send them out without being paid you have no security against payment and should seek payment before despatch if there are concerns.
Happy to discuss further.
