A turnkey solution to fulfill electronic and print orders from your own website
For publishers with an existing eCommerce system on their website, Publisher Connect seamlessly integrates behind the scenes to automatically fulfill electronic and print orders and open additional revenue channels.
Secure. Connected. Fulfilled.
Securely hosting your eBooks and print-ready PDF’s, Publisher Connect is a back-end platform that passes consumer order details from your website to Sheridan through an API call. Purchased eBooks are made available instantly for download or online reading. Print orders can either be fulfilled from a traditional warehouse or produced on-demand by Sheridan and shipped directly to the consumer.
Here are but a few storefront features and benefits:
- Seamless customer experience and integration with existing platforms
- Managed, secure hosting of eBook files
- Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology to ensure your eBooks are restricted to authorized users only (ex. limit length of ownership, restrict the number of downloads, restrict use to a single consumer)
- Online reading (an alternative to DRM) offers enhanced study tools - such as flashcard and study guide creation - along with the ability to restrict printing or make content available for reading offline
- Print-on-demand integration allows for combined sales of electronic and print content
- Zero inventory approach by selling electronic and print-on-demand content eliminates traditional inventory and associated inventory costs
