To learn more about it go to your dedicated page:
Our so-simple-to-get-you-will-take-more-time-to-read-this-than-to-get-it widget allows you to sell your own book wherever you want on the web. Our Sell tool allows you to add a smart widget (it’s like a mini webapp integrated into a page, for a more professionally defined explanation, here is the Wikipedia Link) anywhere you’d like and get a fee for distributing your book.
What it means is you can have your own trading platform on your website, blog, etc. and sell your books directly from there. Themed books can be sold by website related to that theme, book critics can start selling books they keep raving about (and earn some money in the process).
Oh and yes, it’s also available for free. The 30% of book sales usually going to bookstores is divided between StreetLib and you: 15% each.
This technology allowed us to create StreetLib Stores, a way for authors to give visibility to their books online and start promoting it with a well designed, ready-to-use book page: every author can claim his/her book(s) page with a powerful URL (SEO coherent) and areas to promote and sell the book in a beautiful page. Of course, you earn the added 15% distribution royalties selling from this page! We created a home for your books, just ask for the key and it’s yours!
A next step of this BUY & SELL section is a platform for anyone to be able to buy a book and then pick up the widget to sell it. One beautiful online bookstore where the readers can also become book distributors.
Coming in the future!
