Newspaper price rises and carriage charges

Mail Newspapers has launched a new end-to-end home news delivery (HND) subscription across the UK, which will give independent retailers that offer this service the opportunity to acquire new orders and improve cash flow for Mail HND copies.

Retailers will be able set their own delivery charges, which will be reimbursed, along with the full cover price of the newspapers, weekly via i-Movo.

Independent retailers who are not existing PaperRound can sign up, and benefit from a 50% discount on the data transfer fee from their existing systems. as well as free subscription for the first three-months.
