Firsty Express D2C

Firsty Express

The Firsty Express D2C package (btw it’s an eBookstore styled to fit in with your website) simply bolts onto a publisher’s existing website. The latest release includes a number of dramatic enhancements like responsive design (so it’s optimised for mobile devices) and an in-frame, streamlined checkout.

The core features of the package include:

    • category and product pages for each title
    • ‘buy now’, help and checkout facilities (branded)
    • eBook distribution direct from site
    • social sharing buttons to extend your reach
    • Facebook eBookstore (if you’re a Facebook user)
    • branded user login
    • DRM protection and/or digital watermarking, if required
    • administration dashboard to manage your eBookstore
    • secure hosting and maintenance
    • BIC, BISAC and or custom categorisation facility
    • review/gratis copies functionality
    • voucher code creation and management
    • email mailing list subscriber capture
    • responsive design
    • branded inframe checkout
    • social media widget

The set up process involves the following steps:

    • you (the publisher) register on Firsty Express and upload your eBooks (or send us files for conversion)
    • WordPress users just install our WordPress plug-in, or for other websites, you embed the code that adds the eBookstore on your website (we can help you with this)
    • we help you configure the look and feel of your new eBookstore
    • you decide on your DRM preferences per title (default = Strict DRM)
    • we handle all book purchase payments and remunerate you monthly

For each book sold, you receive 70% of the sale price. All payment pages can be branded with your company identity via a secure gateway using industry standard Secure Socket Layers (SSL) for encryption, with royalty payments being made on a monthly basis.

Most reading devices, including iPad, iPhone and Android devices, will be able to read eBooks from your D2C eBookstore as standard ePub titles (note that iPad requires a reader download).
