There are a lot of options for eBook distribution out there. In your search for the best option, you will want to compare:
At eBook Architects, we normally recommend two distribution options for most small publishers and authors. These two companies offer what is known as “wholesale distribution”, which means that they maintain accounts with the retailers and will sell your eBooks using those accounts, paying you the royalties and collecting a fee for the service.
Please see bookbaby.com/ebook-architects for more information.
PigeonLab charges a small setup fee and takes 10% of each sale. We recommend PigeonLab for authors who are selling fixed layout eBooks, as their service is set up for the specific types of distribution required by those formats (especially Barnes & Noble children’s eBooks). For more information, please visit www.pigeonlab.net.
If you have publisher accounts with eBook retailers (i.e., you are not using KDP, NOOK Press, etc., but actually have contracts with the retailers) and are looking for a non-wholesale option, Firebrand’s Content Services helps publishers of all sizes manage title records, files, and distribution from a Title Management application. Content Services allows publishers to create an eBook title using an easy-to-follow, web-based wizard, upload content just once to Firebrand, and then distribute it and its metadata to where it needs to go. Content Services also offers the opportunity to leverage your digital assets for Direct2Reader eBook sales and Book2Look (view inside) promotional widgets.
