Today is the day that many Blurbarians have been waiting for. If we ship to your country – and we ship to 57 of them – you can now Set Your Price and sell books for a profit in the Blurb Bookstore.

Here’s how the program works: You designate the overall price of your books and make them public in the bookstore. When you sell a book, we send you the difference between the Blurb base price and whatever retail price you charge. There’s no sign up fee and nothing else to do besides get creative and make books.

We take care of everything else. We print the books on demand and ship them to your buyers, we provide the tools to promote your books, we handle all sales transactions, and we send you a check every month.

Sit back and track your book sales and profits through the reports featured on your My Blurb dashboard. (It’s addictive checking in to see how many people have viewed your book pages and/or purchased your books.)

Each month that you reach $25, £12.50, or €17.50 in profit, we’ll mail you a payment. If you don’t reach $25, £12.50, or €17.50 during the month, your profits roll over to the following month’s tally. Here are all the details and a few FAQs in case you want to know more about the program.

See you in the Best Sellers section of our bookstore!

  8. Did I miss something? This is not new as of today. It has been in place for quite some time now, at least in the US.

  23. I would like to know how long Bermuda has to wait before it will be added to your ship to list. It is hard having to pre-order the books ship them to an American address and then ship them to Bermuda. This cuts my profits a lot because I do not want to charge too much for my books. It would be really nice to be able to get people to just order online.

    Thanks. I still think that you guys are the best online publishers.

  25. That’s fantastic news. Well done! A quick question, though: is it in the pipeline, that payments of profits will be transferrable via Paypal in the near future? Or are you only ever planning on issuing cheques?

  26. YESSSSS!! I just finished my first book when I saw I could not sell it with a profit (I happen to live in Europe).

    NOW I can…… good job !!!

  27. FINALLY!!!! This is fantastic news. Now I can put my book out there. Have really been hanging for this for ages.

  28. FANTASTIC!!! The wait was well worth it. I’ve already recieved copies of my first book and am waiting for a copy of my second to arrive. With three more sitting in queue I’m going to have to make time to get a blowhorn and a soapbox so I can share the good news with everyone!!! – Given.

  32. “we send you a check every month” is the showstopper here. Currency doesn’t matter, the European banking system is all-electronic. Handling pieces of paper is a manual process involving at least three bank employees, and the bank charges for the privilege, a minimum of 10 EUR. Add my time for going to the bank office and waiting at the counter, and from a check of EUR 17.50, there will be nothing left (or worse).

    I’d love to publish photo books, but until you offer payout by PayPal, or by direct electronic transfer (without charging ridiculous fees for that) this is a no-go. It’s just not worth it.

    If you want to go “international”, you should offer international payment options as well. Checks were old-fashioned 20 years ago here!
