NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PublishDrive's subscription pricing option was released on October 4, 2018, the first of its kind in the ebook self-publishing space. Designed for authors selling at least $1,000 monthly, it allows authors to keep 100% of their royalties (after the stores' fee) by paying a flat monthly fee of $100 - no matter how high sales go.
Traditional royalty share options offered by self-publishing services take an average 10% of royalties, which can be significant for high-earning authors. To show that subscription pricing is a smarter choice for high-earners, PublishDrive studied author Rachel Morgan's experience after she enrolled in their new pricing option.
After analyzing her sales data over a two month period, PublishDrive concluded that Ms. Morgan was able to keep about 16% more of her royalties compared to using a traditional royalty share option.
PublishDrive's CEO, Kinga Jentetics, stated, "Subscription pricing with PublishDrive gives authors the ultimate freedom, convenience, and control. They can manage global ebook distribution, marketing, and sales analytics in a single platform while maximizing their royalties and minimizing administrative tasks."
Another important benefit is that authors enrolled in subscription pricing do not lose the advantages of working directly with stores. "PublishDrive's subscription pricing," Jentetics said, "offers the same royalties and marketing options from all sales channels. For a small monthly fee, authors can sell tens of thousands of dollars per month or more, without any limitation on their royalties from over 400 stores worldwide."
