New Public Beta: D2D adds distribution to Google Play!

Posted by: Kevin Tumlinson 2 weeks, 6 days ago

WE’RE WEAVING IN ANOTHER THREAD!

One of the most exciting things we do around the Draft2Digital offices is think up new ways to help authors reach more readers. And now we’re adding a new sales channel that will help you reach more readers than ever before!

As of right now, Google Play Books is another option for you to offer your books to an ever-growing audience of readers worldwide! Reach out to more than seventy countries using a brand that everyone knows.

NOTE: This program is currently a public beta—meaning you can opt in just as you would with any other sales channel, but there may be adjustments and modifications as we go.

WE’RE MAKING IT EASY!

We’re going to roll this out in groups over the next few weeks, and you should get an email soon to tell you that you’re in!

At that point, all you’ll have to do is log in to your Draft2Digital Account and you’ll be prompted to opt-in all of your books at once. Or, if you prefer, you can skip the mass opt-in and choose which books go in, one by one.

When you opt-in, we’ll automatically add the Suggested Wholesale Price for your book. You can adjust your price after opt-in, if necessary.

 

HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO KNOW:

  • No minimum price—There is no minimum price at Google Play Books. You can list your book for free, if you like! Otherwise, you’ll price at 99-cents or above.
  • Wholesale pricing—Google Play Books uses a wholesale pricing model, meaning that authors can set a recommended list price and Google may discount it at their discretion.
  • Price matching—Some retailers, such as Amazon, may choose to price-match against the Google Play price for your book.
  • Royalty—We pay you 44% of the wholesale price of your book made on Google Play, when you distribute through our service. If you use our Recommended Wholesale Price, this will generally be about the same as the royalty you’d expect with standard pricing.
  • No assetless preorders—Google Play will not accept assetless preorders. You’ll need your book’s manuscript and cover.

 

We’re very excited to offer this new venue for reaching readers, and we know it’s something our authors have wanted for some time!
