Does anyone have any experience with "Hushion House", a Canadian book distributor?

www.hushion.com/about%20us%20canada.htm (http://www.hushion.com/about%20us%20canada.htm)

In addition to distribution for "traditional" publishers, they also offer their services to the self-published crowd. The basic rate is $1500 for distribution in Canada or the US; or $1800 for both. In return, they offer:

"...68% of net revenue from sales of your books at wholesale discounts prevalent in the industry, after deductions for returns and exception processing by our warehouse/ fulfillment supplier. Timing of payments is detailed in our contract, and is established as per industry norm to allow for the effects of returns"

If I read this correctly, the self-published author pays the Distribution fee they feel they want ($1500/$1800) and they get 68% of whatever the dealer's cost was (say 55% of cover??). I presume that there is some processing, handling and/or warehousing fees that have to be deducted as well.

Are these types of arrangements common? Anyone with experience in these types of distribution agreements?

Talk to H. B. Fenn in Mississisauga and see whether the deal they offer is comparable to this Hushion House thing.
