We not only create your ebooks—we can also sell them in Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iBookstore, give you a dashboard that tracks daily sales, and—in certain cases—provide you special promotional opportunities.
It all starts by signing up below.
Of course, you don’t have to take advantage of our distribution. We can provide you with your finished files for you to distribute yourself. But we're always ready to put our experience in the complicated world of ebook retail to work for you.
If we distribute your ebooks on your behalf, we manage your titles in each storefront you choose to distribute to. We handle the royalty collection, accounting, sales tracking and payment. We can publish your ebook through our account with you or your company listed as the seller-of-record, or we can list Vook as the seller-of-record. In either case, you retain all rights to your title and we pay out royalties to you.*
Amazon takes 55% of the list price for ebooks sold to US customers
Amazon takes 60% of the list price for ebooks sold to international customers
This is a wholesale contract with Amazon, which means they pay us off the list price set for ebooks we distribute. If Amazon discounts your ebook for competitive purposes, you still get paid off the original price. With this contract, there are no pricing restrictions, they do not charge a transaction fee per megabyte of download, and you can distribute enhanced titles. There are also no restrictions on free price promotions.Account 2
Amazon takes 30% of the sales price of your title
The list price must be between $2.99 and $9.99 and you cannot run free price promotions. Amazon reserves the right to discount your ebook, pay you off that lower price, and charge a transaction fee per megabyte of download. You cannot distribute audio/video-enhanced content through this account. This account does not include distribution to India, Japan, and Brazil.
You decide which distribution account makes the most sense for your ebook!

You’ll get a reporting dashboard that tracks your ebook sales daily across every marketplace, making it easy to measure and adjust your marketing.
If you don’t already have an ISBN, we’ll gladly give you one for free (which can save you up to $125).
Vook’s wholesale relationship with Amazon means you are always paid off the price you set. If Amazon chooses to discount your ebook, it’s on their dime!
Authors who distribute to Amazon through Vook don’t need to pay delivery costs (Amazon charges authors $0.15 for every MB downloaded).
When you distribute to the major retailers through Vook, you save yourself from going to multiple sites and creating multiple accounts.
