100,000s of books
Yep, that’s right. We’ve teamed up with the world’s leading publishers so not only can offer your own titles, but others' bestsellers, niche topics, and everything in between. (“But wait,” you say, “why would I want to sell other publishers’ titles?” Believe us, you do. Be sure to ask us why when we talk.)
It's like found money
Earn in the neighborhood of 73% on your own titles and 12-23% on the retail price of other books sold from your storefront. Every penny will be deposited to your bank account automatically. No checks, no envelopes, no hassle. Your sales can happen 24/7/365—in your home town or across the nation.
Fully customizable content
If you want control over what kinds of books your storefront shows, you’ve got it! Exclude entire categories, promote bestsellers, and handpick titles. Best of all, anything you change on your storefront automatically updates in your branded app.
No IT knowledge required
That’s right! You can click, drag, and drop to customize your entire storefront without touching a line of code. Leave that part to us (but get the coffee machine started).
Collect emails and analytics
Each of your customers will use an email address to access their library of digital books. We'll supply you with those e-mail addresses plus insights into their buying behavior.
A reading app that works for everyone
iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook and other Android devices—your customers are reading on a lot of devices, so we created a bookshelf app that works on all mobile platforms.
As easy as you want it to be
