Well, it depends. If they are consignment, you might not have to try that hard - depending on the distro. As far as trading, have you tried trading directly with other zinesters instead of doing it through a distro? Regardless, might as well try and then build on what you learn. Good luck.

Hi Betty - thanks for the links! I did some research on distros in my home country too, and the policies seem pretty standard. I think I'll try sending out a couple of samples, then worry about the rules after I find out if they're interested in stocking it. I'm anxious it's a bit noobish and that I might have to try harder. Not that I didn't try hard, but you know, *angst*

Hey Lindsey, you can try researching distros that are out there and decide which one/s seem like they might be a good fit and what their "policies" are. For instance, I just looked up three and they all provide information on how/if they will look at selling zines from their distros (for more specific questions, probably just contact the distro since they are all different):

My first ever perzine is finished and listed on Folksy - has anyone here sent stuff to distros? I'm thinking of making some enquiries but I'm not sure about etiquette, if you can list in several at once or if they'd mind me offering copies for exchange - does anyone have any experience they can share?

My first comic zine is out, about a lonely little fish-headed DJ called Theodore knuckle. Illustrated with brush and ink, 12 black and white pages, colour cover. Buy it here or yell me on here if you would like to swap!

Hey, I've just started asking for submissions for my first zine, I want to make a collaborative riot grrl zine, I've made a tumblr and fb , handed out flyers and put up posters, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on getting the word out and what people prefer to sell zines on online, etsy, big cartel or others?

...
