Open Book - Introducing Bookshop.org
6 October 2020
Zoom event for members on Tuesday 6 October at
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
Please get in touch with Jasper Sutcliffe if you'd like to set
up an Affiliate Account with bookshop.org at firstname.lastname@example.org.
