At Outskirts Press, we are constantly working to improve the experience for our author-clients, whether it is with new services (like the recently launched AudioBook service), or new publishing packages (like our suite of One-Click bundles), or improvements to the website to make actions easier and more streamlined.
For example, this week, we are excited to announce that buying books from your Publishing Center is now easier and faster than ever before. When it goes “live” this week, your page for ordering Author’s Copies will look a little different, and this blog post will help you identify all the improvements.
In the past, ordering Author Copies from your Publishing Center has been “split” between two separate pages, depending upon the number of copies you were ordering. If you were ordering less than 100 copies, you would see the “main” ordering page, and select the format you wished to order, and enter the quantity.
Even if you wanted to order copies of both formats (paperback and hardback, for example), you would need to place your order for each format separately. Time consuming, and certainly not ideal.
What’s more, if you wanted to take advantage of bulk orders for higher author discounts, you would have to go to an entirely different page:
The discounts were great, but the process? Not so much.
This week, the new book ordering page will be uploaded to your Publishing Center to allow you to order multiple formats and receive your Author Discounts all at once.
If you only have one format, you will see this new page, which displays the cover of the book you are ordering, it’s format type/details, and the quantity discounts. Black and white books still receive up to a 50% discount when ordering in bulk while full-color books still enjoy a discount of up to 35%! Now you can enjoy these discounts all from the same page.
If you have two formats, you will see all the relevant information for each format, and you can place orders for both formats simultaneously:
To celebrate this exciting new improvement, please enjoy our popular FREE SHIPPING promotion throughout the month of September. Simply order 50 or more copies of any format and US Commercial shipping throughout the continental United States is FREE!
Stay tuned to this blog in the coming weeks and months for more announcements about other improvements coming to your Publishing Center.
