Frequently asked questions

What percentage do book distributors take?

As the customer, you’re able to determine the percentage that is taken by the retailer. The higher the percentage, the more likely the retailer will want to stock and sell your book. Printondemand as the distributor only takes the cost of production to print the book. 

How do bookstores get their books?

All bookstore retailers work differently. For example, Paperbackshop receives bulk orders of books from us daily to then be shipped onto the end consumer. Other retailers, such as Amazon and Gardners, will send directly to the bookstore.

How can I get my self-published book distributed?

Your books will be distributed as part of our self-publishing services. You’ll be listed into various retailers throughout the UK, USA and Europe. Your publishing account manager will help you decide your retail price to understand the potential royalties you’ll receive from any sales. If you have an interest in exploring a new market, please contact us for free, friendly advice.
