Digital books have finally gained public popularity and represent the future of publishing. In order to offer your book in electronic format on the popular e-book stores, your manuscript needs to be properly formatted. Both the pagination and images need to be optimized for each electronic format. Amazon.com, the most popular e-book storefront, uses a "Kindle" format and other digital booksellers, such as iBookstore and the Nook use the standardized ePub format. Our prices cover conversion for both Kindle and ePub and are based on the amount of words and images in a book:
Compensation is what we pay you for each sale made through our wholesale distribution channels.
This figure is determined by taking the wholesale price of your book (your retail price, less your discount) and deducting the print cost. The amount remaining is due to you.
The publisher compensation amount shown here is based solely on the metadata provided by you at this time and is subject to change based on the final manufacturing specifications and page count of your book after it has completed our title setup process.
For Example : E book Retail Price $2.50
Apple Ebook agency Price $1.99
