Digital Book Stores

Your book for sale 24/7

Digital book stores are storefronts that never close—they can be accessed at any time and with any device that has a connection to the world wide web. Most digital stores sell ebooks as well as other formats like audiobooks and print books, too. Our digital store parters use an agency pricing model which allows authors and publishers (that’s you!) to choose the actual retail price that customers pay for your books. You can offer sales and discounts on your books whenever you want, sell your books through as many (or as few) storefronts as you like, and there is no requirement for exclusivity. logo
