Indie publishing, self-publishing, whatever you want to call it, has always been about being independent. Blazing your own trail, doing it yourself, having it your way. Wait, that last one was Burger King, skip that.
There are only two essential parties in the book business: the author and the reader. Everyone else is a middle man. As one of those middlemen, everything we do at BookFunnel is built around the idea that we want to build your brand, not our brand. We have one goal with every feature we build: to help you sell more books.
With that in mind, we are announcing our #1 most requested feature. The feature request we’ve gotten every single week since we opened our doors two years ago. Today we’re announcing sales delivery actions.
You sell. BookFunnel delivers.
You choose the platform you want to sell on, and BookFunnel will deliver your ebook with the same easy process and amazing tech support you (and your readers!) trust.
We’re starting small by supporting three sales platforms, selected because they meet the needs of a wide range of authors. Whether you’re a beginner who wants someone else to do all the work, or you’re a DIYer who wants to handle it all yourself, we’ve got you covered.
With sales delivery actions, BookFunnel will deliver sales from Payhip, Selz, or direct from your website with PayPal (update: we’ve now added WooCommerce and Shopify support as well). And, we’re looking to add more actions in the future, so drop us a line and tell us about your favorite way to sell.
If you’re already selling ebooks through one of these platforms, you can set up BookFunnel to deliver to your readers in no time. Find step-by-step instructions in the Knowledge Base articles for Payhip, Selz, and PayPal. If you’re new to the idea of selling your own books, we’ve written a quick article that lists the pros and cons of each platform to help you decide which is best for you:
