The Outpublish program is a hybrid publishing program that gives our writers the best of both worlds - the professional expertise and guidance of traditional publishing along with the freedom of Self-Publishing.
This program combines two powerful forces to create one great outcome - an innovative, multi-layered approach that provides writers with a platform to get their work out there and be seen by millions. In addition to providing all the benefits of traditional publishing (e.g., editorial guidance, design, distribution), Outpublish also allows authors to retain ownership over their work and make money through book sales and even keep 100% of the profits.

Writers who publish using the Notion Press Platform get 60% or 80% of the net profits from the sale of each copy of the book, depending on the distribution plan selected
Let us assume, the MRP of a book is Rs.100, and the production cost of the book is Rs.30/-. Now, the profits would be calculated as
Profits = MRP - (Distribution Cost + Production Cost)
= Rs.100 - (50 + 30) = Rs. 20
Rs.20/- would be your earnings per book when sold via Amazon.in, Flipkart and all other eCommerce sites and in retail stores.
Notion Press charges a 20% distribution fee on all online store orders to account for Payment Processing and Order Fulfilment Charges.
Profits are calculated as Rs.100 - (20 + 30) = Rs.50
Author Earnings if you have chosen the Outpublish Program (100% net profits):
Notion Press Online Store= Rs. 50
Other Stores = Rs. 20
Author Earnings if you have chosen the India/International Distribution (80% net profits):
Notion Press Online Store= Rs.40
Other Stores (Amazon, Flipkart)= Rs.16
Author Earnings if you have chosen the Basic Distribution (60% net profits):
Notion Press Online Store= Rs.30
Other Stores (Amazon, Flipkart)= Not Applicable
