When utilizing coupon codes from your distributor, leverage this opportunity to send tailored emails containing the code and clear instructions, establishing a deeper connection with your audiobook enthusiasts.

There are many printing companies that offer fulfillment services, and if you are planning a large-scale fulfillment of your books to Amazon buyers and others worldwide, I would recommend connecting with Accutrack, Brightstar, or another excellent fulfillment service. Companies like these offer a wide range of services for authors and other retailers. However, these services generally come with steep set-up fees and monthly storage fees costing hundreds – if not thousands – of dollars, in addition to shipping and handling costs.

At ShopBooksDirect, we offer print fulfillment for our member authors at the same per-piece handling rate as others, without the costly start-up fees or steep monthly inventory rates. However, our services are limited to fulfilling orders placed on ShopBooksDirect, along with authors contacting us directly for personal order fulfillment.

The fees for fulfillment of print books with ShopBooksDirect are as follows:

Start-up cost – $0

You are welcome to mail/deliver books to our location yourself, or if you prefer, we can order books at low author rates for you (we will need all print files to facilitate an order, with a minimum order of 50 books).

Monthly storage/inventory – $10 per month for your first title/$5 per month for each additional title. (Most fulfillment companies charge from $150 and up for storage)

Shipping – the cost of shipping supplies (cardboard mailers/boxes) plus the cost of media mail (generally between $4-$6, this is the standard price for all fulfillment companies).

Handling – $1.50 handling charge per order, plus $0.50 per item (this is the standard price for all fulfillment companies).

You can sell books in packages, along with non-book items at ShopBooksDirect. Consider including book excerpts, individual chapters, book club, questions, coloring pages, coaching sessions, book club appearances, toys and gifts – whatever you like! If you would like to run a buy two/get one free promotion on your series, bundle backlist items with the newer release, or offer a monthly subscription, or Patreon membership, you can do that right on your shop page.

When it comes to selling tangible items, you’re in the driver’s seat with a range of choices:

  1. Self-Shipping/Fulfillment: Similar to managing book inventory, you have the option to handle the shipping of tangible items yourself. Keep an inventory on hand and fulfill orders directly, or streamline the process by utilizing a fulfillment center to manage shipping logistics on your behalf.

  2. Affiliate Linking: Enter the world of affiliate marketing, where you can become a virtual storefront for a variety of products. Acting as a middleman or distributor, you can offer anything from jewelry to snowblowers without the need to physically possess the items. Consider researching this option if you’re intrigued by the prospect of broadening your product range.

  3. Amazon Affiliate Program: Amazon offers a robust affiliate program for those looking to sell their products without the hassle of inventory management. Explore the potential of being an affiliate seller on your own website, earning commissions for each sale made through Amazon product links.

Diversify Your Shop – The Possibilities Are Endless!

Whether you choose to ship items independently, leverage affiliate links, or explore fulfillment options, your shop becomes a versatile marketplace for your creativity.

Each week, different books are featured on the Shop Books Direct home page, as well as being included in our Shop Books Direct promotional email going to thousands of readers.

Please note that ShopBooksDirect is not a legal or financial advisor. We strongly recommend consulting with professionals when making business decisions regarding sales tax collection.

Sales Tax Collection Requirements:

  • Economic Nexus: Sellers are generally required to collect and remit sales tax if they reach “economic nexus” in any state. The typical threshold is $100,000 in sales within a year, although some states may have higher thresholds.
  • Print Book Sales: These guidelines typically apply to print book sales, not digital products. Always check with each state to confirm their specific requirements.

For more detailed information, visit Stripe’s Introduction to US Sales Tax and Economic Nexus.

ShopBooksDirect Sales Tax Policy:

  • New York State: Since ShopBooksDirect is located in New York, we handle the collection and remittance of sales tax for all sales made within New York State. Authors with nexus in New York do not need to worry about collecting sales tax themselves.
  • Other States: Authors can opt to collect sales tax for other states via their dashboard. If an author chooses to do so, the sales tax will be added to the purchase price, and the author will be responsible for submitting the collected sales tax to the respective state.

ShopBooksDirect ensures compliance with New York State sales tax laws by remitting all required taxes directly. For other states, please ensure you follow the necessary procedures for sales tax collection and remittance.
