Open Book - Introducing Bookshop.org

6 October 2020

Zoom event for members on Tuesday 6 October at 10 am

 

Bookshop.org is a new online bookshop that aims to help independent booksellers compete against the online retail sector. It offers booksellers 30% commission earned on sales, and also offers publishers, authors and others the chance to set up their own affiliate platform where they can earn 10% commission on sales. Bookshop.org aims to go live in the UK in early November. The business started in the US in January 2020 and has already raised $6.85m for local bookstores. It's an exciting, new space to promote your books and support both the independent publishing and bookselling sector.

We hosted an Open Book session with Jasper Sutcliffe from bookshop.org where he told us about this new online selling space that also supports independent booksellers. The site went live in the US earlier this year, and already has million dollar turnover. The UK site will go live in November 2020. If you were unable to attend the event, you can catch up by watching the event recording here
