Discount Group Codes
Page last updated 2nd February 2022
What they are for and how they should be used
The BIC discount group code system exists to enable confidential information about discounts to be exchanged between trading partners. It may also be used to convey commission arrangements agreed for digital content traded under the ‘agency model'. The mechanism by which this is done is by means of a unique code, which can be conveyed in EDI and other electronic messages.
Uniqueness is guaranteed by means of a publisher prefix listing maintained by BIC. The code comprises six to eight characters, made up as follows:
- A single alphabetical character indicating the organisation which has assigned the code. At present all assignment is by BIC and all codes are therefore prefixed by the letter A, which represents a BIC assignment.
- A four-character alphabetical code representing the publisher and assigned by BIC. This may be in the form of a mnemonic or acronym, but need not be.
- A one- to three-character or alphanumeric code created by the publisher.
The first two elements of assigned codes 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 are publicly available on the BIC web site in .pdf and .csv forms and are 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 listed above.
The actual discount information is exchanged confidentially outside the coding system by agreement between trading partners. It is not transmitted in messages and cannot be inferred from the codes assigned. It is recommended that a structured matrix of codes and the discounts specifically applicable to the trading partner is provided and updated whenever any code meanings change.
Who is responsible for assignment of the publisher prefixes?
It is the distributor's responsibility to obtain and assign discount group codes on behalf 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 of publisher clients. Self-distributing publishers - if 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 they have the technical capacity to exchange data via EDI - may also do so. Some distributors - e.g. Macmillan Distribution and Littlehampton Book Services - have requested codes which recognisably identify them with the publisher concerned, using a standard two characters in front of a two-character publisher code.
How should publisher codes be obtained?
Code prefixes are available on request from BIC; and are published on the BIC web site as soon as they are assigned.
How does BIC guarantee uniqueness?
It can't, unless the rules are strictly followed. It is essential that changes in publisher client lists are notified to BIC as 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 early as possible; and no code should be assigned or used without agreement from BIC until its uniqueness is confirmed.
BIC discount 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 codes are required in BIC Basic and UK ONIX? Can codes be issued direct to 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 publishers?
Codes can only be assigned to publishers if they are also their own distributors. Although 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 the codes are a mandatory element in BIC Basic and ONIX, they will not be assigned simply to enable a bibliographic record to be complete. If distribution has been outsourced, it is the distributor's responsibility to obtain a prefix on behalf of the publisher.
What happens when there is a change of distributor?
This will depend on the circumstances. It is often desirable to assign a new prefix to the publisher; and this will always happen when a publisher moves from one of those distributors using their own distinctive two-letter prefix. If a non-specific prefix exists and there is no change to discount arrangements arising from the move, it is probably acceptable to transfer the prefix to the new distributor.
A distributor using its own two-letter prefix may not reassign a code to another publisher which has already been in use.
Are codes ever removed or deleted?
No. All codes, once assigned, remain on the published list, even if they are no longer in use.
Why is uniqueness important?
Integrity and accuracy 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 of electronic communication is fundamental to its value. These codes are stored in wholesaler and retailer databases; and may well be accessed 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 or used in ways publishers and distributors cannot 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 anticipate. It is a requirement of the bookselling community that BIC maintains the uniqueness of codes through its administration of the scheme.
Can codes be swapped or exchanged?
No. Unfortunately, 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 there is nothing to be done if a particular code is wanted - for mnemonic or other reasons - which has already been 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 assigned. In any event, the codes themselves have no significance in themselves except to facilitate automated messaging.
每天醒来后，她可能先敷个fresh的红茶面膜，再洗把脸化个淡妆：用make up forever的粉底液、贝玲妃的防麻瓜眉笔、Givenchy的四色散粉、蕾哈娜Fenty Beauty的高光、永恒经典的Dior999口红。出门前戴上Fendi老花围巾，用LV的Neverfull装上电脑，最后喷点Loewe的001事后清晨。下班后先去丝芙兰逛一圈，路过Loro Piana、RIMOWA的橱窗驻足几分钟，回家后小酌两杯Hennessy。
【時報記者王逸芯台北報導】電子消費性市場適逢通膨壓，面板驅動IC下半年旺季不旺拍板，不過，似乎也不用太悲觀，因為有法人認為，電視市場在2021年下半年就開始逐步進入庫存調整，是產業中最早開始修正的，故在歷經大幅度調節後，最快將有望在年底前落底，拚2023年重新回溫，預計聯詠(3034)、瑞鼎(3592)等大尺寸驅動IC出貨最快可在2023年重回成長軌道。 有鑑於驅動IC產品報價相較其他IC設計晶片較低，且其所佔的晶圓產能並非多數晶圓廠的生產首要項目，2020年因疫情關係，刺激宅經濟需求湧現，明顯帶動NB、TV、Tablet等消費性電子產品對驅動IC需求，加上晶圓產能供不應求，刺激驅動IC晶片報價上揚。 隨著時序進入今年，法人認為，由於疫苗加速施打與解封逐步開發，遠距需求明顯下滑，指標業者聯詠，第二季營收314.61億元，低於財測的345~358億元目標，顯示是受到手機與TV市場需求疲弱影響，展望第三季，預計在受到面板稼動率持續下降與三星砍單效應，客戶進入調整庫存階段將導致旺季不旺，且因為要反映晶圓代工成本上漲與報價下跌壓力，故無法完全轉嫁成本，也會衝擊到毛利率。 古馳品牌所有者開雲的股票或值得逢低買入 消費性需求受總體經濟影
