Printed Book Distribution
Authors who opt for online distribution can have their books listed on our online book store, www.thedogearsbookshop.com and on our channel partners within India, and internationally.
In India, the books are sold on The Dogears Bookshop, Amazon, Flipkart, Sapna Online, and BooksWagon. Of these, The Dogears Bookshop ships books globally. Internationally, the book is sold on various platforms (see the full list below this paragraph). In both cases, online distribution is carried out only on POD basis i.e. your book will be printed and shipped on order.
Offline (Physical) Distribution
We also offer the option of having your books distributed to book stores around the country. To avail of this option, you must provide us with up to 4 review copies. After reviewing, the retailer will request a certain number of copies, the cost of printing of which will be borne by you. You must also pay for the shipping of these books to the central warehouse from where these books are then distributed to book stores across the country. These retailers demand a commission of up to 65% off the MRP for their service. At 12-month intervals, an author may ask for a status of the books. At these intervals, the author can also request that his/her books be withdrawn from these retail channels, if so desired.
Please note that authors will not receive a list of the book stores in which the books are placed. It is important to note that books are placed in book stores at the discretion of the distributor.
