StreetLib South Africa is a publishing portal for authors and publishers in South Africa to digitally distribute their books around the world, with no up-front fees.
Books can be published in English and most other languages, and will be distributed to ebook retailers and digital libraries worldwide, including to the world’s biggest ebook retailers like Amazon, Google Play, Kobo and Apple.
StreetLib is a global gateway distributor of digital books, based in Italy, and serving authors and publishers worldwide.
Established in 2006, StreetLib has the widest international reach of any digital distributor. Authors and publishers can make their books digitally available to readers in almost every country in the world, and get paid for every sale. There are no upfront fees - StreetLib simply deducts a 10% commission from net and pays you the rest.
At its simplest, a digital book, or ebook, is a digital file of a book or manuscript that can be bought, downloaded and read on a smartphone, an e-reader or a laptop or desktop computer by anyone anywhere in the world with an internet connection. No printing costs, no storage costs, no shipping costs.
In South Africa alone there are over 30 million people online. That’s more than Australia or Poland, three times more than Belgium or Sweden, and just behind Canada, yet South Africa is only at 53% internet penetration.
Your books uploaded to the StreetLib South Africa portal will be available to buy as ebooks in South Africa and across Africa via the StreetLib international store, as well as globally.
There are already over 450 million Africans online. In fact Africa has more internet users than Latin America. It has more internet users than the European Union. And it has almost 150 million more internet users than the USA. Yet Africa as a continent is only at 35% internet penetration. So much room to grow!
StreetLib South Africa offers free formatting tools, if needed, to turn your book or manuscript into a digital file.
Authors and publishers can upload a single book at a time, or use our batch upload option for large quantities of titles. The StreetLib South Africa upload portal dashboard is in English, Italian, Spanish, Hindi, Telegu and Tamil.
But the books themselves can be uploaded in any language, including indigenous South African languages like Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa, Tswana, Tsonga, etc, and sold through the StreetLib international store, as well as being distributed to any retailers that supports that language.
