Invoices will be mailed upon publication of the magazine along with proof of placed advertising. If you have questions about your invoice, contact staff.
Payments: Net fifteen (15) days to advertisers in good standing. First-time advertisers who are not members of SBCA must prepay for initial insertion by the Materials Due deadline. Advertisers and their agencies assume liabilities for all content in their ads and for any claims arising therefrom. The publisher reserves the right to refuse any advertisement.
Finance Charge: Any accounts that remain unpaid after 30 days will be charged a finance charge of 18% annually or 1.5% per month and will forfeit the 15% On-Time Discount.
Cancellations & Short Rates: If, for any reason, an advertisement is cancelled after the space reservation deadline, the publisher reserves the right to repeat a former ad at full rate. If the advertiser has not previously run an ad, the advertiser will be charged for the cost of the space reserved. Advertising billed at contract rate, who fails to fulfill contract terms, will be billed at the actual frequency level earned. Contracts cancelled without placement of any advertising are subject to a 20% cancellation fee. Neither the advertiser nor its agency may cancel advertising after the closing date.
SBC Payment & BCMC Exhibiting: For advertisers who also exhibit at BCMC, all outstanding SBC invoices must be paid in full prior to trucks unloading exhibit materials at BCMC. Likewise, all companies that have any BCMC receivables outstanding shall not be allowed to advertise in SBC or exhibit at BCMC until all receivables have been paid in full.
