Standing Order Plans (SOPs)
SOPs guarantee the delivery of outstanding new titles each quarter, with titles recorded and automatically shipped at a 20% discount. The number of titles in an SOP varies by plan, and most SOPs allow customers to select a smaller number of titles than the maximum number specified for the SOP. Free shipping is included and full digital processing is available upon request. Bundle CD shipments with an eAudio purchase for RBdigital* and take advantage of the greatest savings!
