How long should I use this service?
That’s up to you. You can use this service until your inventory runs out, for launch months, special sales or something else.
Please note: you are responsible for paying for shipping if you’d like any inventory returned to you.
Do you ship internationally?
Not yet. With the marketplace we just ship orders in the U.S.
How is this different/better than selling on Amazon?
We allow you to provide a unique reading experience to your readers with exclusive swag they can’t get anywhere else. This allows you to give readers a more customized experience at a reduced commission cost.
How are taxes handled?
We take care of collecting and remitting taxes. You are sent a 1099 before tax season starts
What does the shop look like?
I don't know how much I'll sell. How many books should I start with?
If you’ve never sold direct before, we recommend starting with 10-20 books and offering exclusive swag for readers.
Alternatively, you can set up a pre-order to get a better idea of how many books to ship.
What kind of books do best in the shop?
We promote most genres and highly recommend hardcovers with dust jackets.
