Straightforward, Transparent Pricing
You pay a flat annual fee per title and there are no hidden costs. We do not charge any commission on your royalties and there are no fees for updates to your metadata.
The annual fee per title depends upon the number of titles you have – the more books the lower the price (see the table below for full details).
You can save up to 40% on your annual fee by taking advantage of our pay upfront offers (see below for details).
If you have 100 or more titles we can invoice you monthly if you prefer to split your distribution cost over 12 months.
|$ per title||£ per title (inc VAT)|
|1 to 2 titles||$50 per annum||£35 per annum|
|3 to 5 titles||$40 pa||£30 pa|
|6 to 9 titles||$35 pa||£25 pa|
|10 to 29 titles||$30 pa||£20 pa|
|30 to 49 titles||$25 pa||£15 pa|

Why choose our eBook Distribution Service?
Flat fee pricing and zero commission - You pay a fixed, low annual fee for each title and unlike many other eBook distribution services, we do not charge any commission on the royalties that your eBook titles generate. You will receive 100% of the royalties generated through our eBook distribution channels.
A global distribution network – We work with over 150 retailers, more than 65,000 libraries and subscription services from around the world.
Flexible payments – Once we have collected payment for your sales from our retailers, we can pass your money on to you monthly, quarterly or annually – whatever you prefer. You choose the payment method and minimum payment and we’ll do the rest.
Online Sales and Royalty reports – You can keep track of your eBook sales and royalties through our online reporting system (which we call ED). ED collates all the latest sales data and royalty reports that we receive from our distribution partners. You can generate reports and graphs showing how many eBooks have been sold, the retailers generating most sales, and the royalties amount due.
Free metadata changes – Unlike some of our competitors, we will not charge you for updating your metadata or price information or for setting up price promotions with supporting retailers.
Avoid withholding tax on US sales – If you are not based in the US you could be liable to pay 30% withholding tax on sales generating from the US. As we have the relevant tax registrations in place, your US royalties will not be subject to withholding tax and you do not have to complete any additional US tax paperwork.
No exclusivity – You can specify which channels you would like us to distribute your eBook to. So if you manage your own Amazon account or on other retailers can use the eBook Partnership distribution service to widen your eBook distribution opportunities.
No tie-in – There is no minimum term commitment and you can request that your eBooks are removed from our distribution channels whenever you wish – at no charge.
Geographic targeting – We can upload eBook retailers which will give you a worldwide reach, but most of our eBook distribution channels do offer the option to restrict availability to specific geographic regions. If you only have the rights to distribute your eBook titles in North America and the UK for example, we can specify that these are the only regions your titles will appear on sale.
