Directors and staff at ARD - Audocs Record Distribution, a department of Audio Documents Inc. have devised a seamless billing practice to regulate fraud. Audocs JIZA invoice and billing fulfills orders apart of a free check-out system. Upon receipt of the order, ARD staff will invoice the customer by email. All orders must be paid 100% in full, wether B2B or B2C. Unpaid invoices to ARD will place the shipping of merchandise on hold. To avoid excessive billing, change of internal billing structure without notice, ARD will act in a moral manner by also paying 2nd or 3rd party product in full.
ARD's William Robinson also President and Managing Director of Audio Documents Inc., implemented ARD as a direct clear cut way to ship records to customers. Vendor based agreements will be signed by contract with ARD based on local service and exchange rates. Wether in China, Australia or Canada, ARD expressly observes a ‘Global to local’ policy of fair trade. Any agreed cycle times regarding manufacturing and distribution due dates, will be concrete. When ARD indicates ""90 Days”” it means Ninety days, not 30 or 60 or even 10.
- Invoicing and numbering will remain consistent, items / merchandise bought or sold as units supplied to ARD from vendor, direct or on behalf of an artist or label will be due as agreed. No ARD staff member may refuse to pay invoices, send threatening emails or indicate I.e. ""DO NOT SEND ANY MORE INVOICES""
- All product numbering, upc, sku, isrc or otherwise will not change. Unless by express consent of the vendor or supplier.
- Absolutely NO tactics or strategies of ""Debt"" by ARD staff will be tolerated. Agreed manufacturing terms for pressings or merchandise must be observed in a guaranteed manner of sale. ARD purchases what it sells, as agreed.
- Previous pressings via ARD, will be mitigated in a moral manner. Absolutely no interest or debt will be incurred by either party.

ARD has been devised by 20 plus year music industry veteran William Robinson to combat the immoral practices of distributors attempting to place vendors, artists, labels and suppliers in debt. Apart of the ongoing valuation of several contracts between clients & distributors, Robinson found a mere reluctance to pay or disclose properly inventory, destination and other pertinent information needed by vendors and suppliers. “This is unbearable, extortionate, manipulative and morally bankrupt.” Robinson exclaims. ARD will not be asking for any undue fees or payments for a promise to continue manufacturing or distributing. Nor, refusing to pay invoices or return goods until said fees where paid. ARD will not disrupt manufacturing, packaging, selling and payout of proceeds from any global events. The JIZA program is based on clear, transparent and upfront record keeping.
