Distribution

We offer Quickfox Pro clients a variety of different distribution methods. Whether it's online distribution of your book or ebook that you're looking for, a presence in bricks-and-mortor bookstores, or library distribution, our infrastructure and professional partnerships will ensure that you have access to these distribution channels. Our full distribution service is regretfully not available to clients who have not used the Quickfox Pro publishing solution.

Publisher.co.za – the online store for South African authors publishing independently

Quickfox Publishing has partnered up with Print On Demand to offer ALL self-publishing authors and independent publishers in South Africa the opportunity to sell their books and ebooks to customers locally and abroad through our jointly-owned independant online store www.publisher.co.za. Authors make more selling through publisher.co.za than they do selling through most other online channels, and without the usual costs associated in doing so. Local order fulfilment is particularly beneficial in that postage rates are kept at a minimum, making your books more affordable to local buyers.

We have formulated the business model around the specific requirements of independent publishing by keeping the costs as low as possible and the listing process really easy. Furthermore, listing on the site does not preclude you from listing your book elsewhere.

Publisher.co.za offers the following benefits –

  • Earn 70% of the pre-VAT retail price on the sale of your products...
  • No compulsory setup costs or monthly fees...
  • No transport, warehousing, insurance or pick-and-pack costs...
  • Account set up and book listing within 5 working days...
  • Sell your products locally and internationally...
  • Receive your own book page with the option of including media reviews, sample pages of your book, and author bio...
  • Enjoy the option of upgrading to a full warehousing and distribution solution at minimal cost...

 

Bookstore distribution (Quickfox Pro only)

Titles with the Quickfox imprint: Our solid partnership with specialist bookstore marketers and On The Dot Distribution, one of the largest book distributors in South Africa, means that we are able to offer Quickfox Pro clients a seamless book marketing and distribution service to book retailers throughout South Africa. All order fulfilment, stock level monitoring, billing, admin and returns are handled on your behalf, leaving you free to focus on your publicity and marketing campaigns. We prepare your sales sheets and book information; liaise with the book marketers on your behalf; monitor your sales and stock levels, and let you know when more books are needed by the distribution warehouse. We also provide a sounding board when reprint decisions are needed.

Selling Kindle ebooks on Amazon

Quickfox Publishing can convert your book into kindle format (or create a kindle ebook from scratch) and list your kindle ebook in each of the Amazon stores (USA, UK and Europe). Kindle ebooks purchased through Amazon can be wirelessly delivered, immediately, to any Kindle device anywhere in the world. This means that you have quick and easy access to a rapidly growing, global market - a market in which ebook sales far exceeded regular book sales over the past year. This is excellent news for authors who would like to tap into a global market without the expense of printing and the headaches normally associated with physical product distribution.

Selling ebooks in other major international online stores

Quickfox Publishing can convert and list your novel or text-based book in other international online stores such as the Apple iBookstore (available through iTunes), Sony Bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Diesel Books, and more.
