HOW YOUR PRESS CAN SELL EBOOKS WITH BIBLIOVAULT/CDC
Presses that use the CDC cart and have web-ready PDFs or epubs in BiblioVault:
You can set up ebooks for sale in your cart just as you do physical books.
Presses that use other carts and have web-ready PDFs or epubs in BiblioVault:
If your independent cart can make a secure call to BiblioVault's servers, we can probably fulfill your ebook sales. (Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for details.)
Once a user has successfully completed the purchase of an ebook in your cart, your cart passes them a link to download the book.
HOW YOU CAN REPLACE PHYSICAL COMP COPIES WITH EBOOKS
Presses can also use BiblioVault to distribute complimentary copies of ebooks, as text exam copies, review copies, and free giveaways. New tools on the BiblioVault website pages allow presses to generate links to individual books as needed or email out many links at once. With the elimination of unit and shipping costs, presses can realize substantial savings and provide a fast, “green” alternative for readers.
