The benefits of selling your books through The Great British Bookshop

By being able to print titles on-demand we bring the publisher closer to the reader, with lower risks. We offer fast turnaround times, without compromising the quality of print so that your published products compete on the global market.

A lean supply chain means:

  • no storage;
  • no overprinting,
  • no remaindering
  • no out-of-stock titles
  • and no unnecessary transportation, leaving a greater profit for the publisher.

Reducing your risk to publish

Publishers can list their titles and choose to print-on-demand only when customers purchase a copy of their book, giving a fast turnaround with quality at its heart.

Publisher opportunities

Our BookSHOP supports and champions its publishers offering cost-effective advertising and marketing opportunities. By listing your books on BookSHOP you will be making your titles visible not only to consumers but also to other retailers to further widen your reach.

“Online sales are really important these days. Working with Printondemand-worldwide means my books are listed on The Great British Bookshop, where anyone can purchase a copy and get free delivery on their order. It’s a great tool and the fact that it all works by print-on-demand is even better.”
