Ebook distribution (also known as ebook aggregation) is the process of sending a finished ebook to various ebook stores for sale.
Our ebook distribution service is a fast, reliable and affordable way to get your ebook in front of the vast majority of ebook buyers. We work directly with Amazon, iTunes, Nookpress, Kobo and Google Play on behalf of authors all over the world.
Most ebook projects can be distributed and up for sale within 24 hours.
We provide online sales reporting (summary and detailed by book) and provide outstanding customer support.
A low yearly fee and one of the lowest commissions in the industry allows you to keep the most money possible when working with a distributor.
The ebook stores we work with cover over 99% of the ebook market so you won’t have to worry about missed sales.
We currently distribute to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, iTunes and Kobo.
We’ve created the handy Ebook Royalty Calculator on this page to give you an idea of how much money you’ll make when distributing through ISBN Services.
Here are the current base royalty rates for each store:
Amazon: 70% if book priced between 2.99 and 9.99. 35% otherwise*
Nook: 65% if book priced between 2.99 and 9.99. 40% otherwise
Google Play: does not publish their rates publicly, but averages around 55%
* Amazon has several exceptions to their base rates. For instance, if someone makes a purchase on the American Amazon.com website from a country which doesn’t have its own official Amazon store, the Royalty is always 35% regardless of price. Amazon also charges a small delivery fee based on file size for books in the 70% program.
** Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Google Play all use currency conversion for books purchases outside of the United States. This means there will be a slight difference in royalty from the base rates for books purchased outside of the US.
All authors will be give a complimentary account at our sales tracking site www.ebooksalestracker.com.
We only charge $25/yr and 10% of the net receipts from each ebook store–the lowest cost of any major competitor.
We make monthly royalty payments when an account balance reaches $20.
We make all payments via Paypal, so a Paypal account is required to participate.
The $25 fee covers unlimited re-uploads of files, price changes and metadata changes for up to 10 ebooks. If you want to distribute more than 10 ebooks, you’ll need to purchase another subscription.
