Notion Press is a publishing platform for authors from around the world. We make it easy for you to create, publish, and distribute your book in Print and as an Ebook.
You retain all the rights to your book! We exist to help you reach the market via our distribution partners and act as a publishing label. We work with a non-exclusive publishing agreement meaning, we don't own any of your content and you can even publish it elsewhere if you wish.
ISBN stands for 'International Standard Book Number'. It's basically a 13 digit identification number that booksellers and libraries use to identify books, magazines, newspapers or other publications. Separate ISBNs are assigned for the paperback, hardbound and eBook versions of your book.
You can track the sales of your book on your author dashboard. You can also see your earnings, track payout and order copies of your book at a subsidised price.
The inventory is Printed-On-Demand (POD) based on sales velocity to ensure that the book does not go out of stock. Notion Press works with its various print partners across the globe to make sure your book is printed and delivered to your buyer within the turn around time. This ensures that the latest version of your book is always available when readers order it from the Notion Press Store or various eCommerce sites.
Profit is calculated as the difference between the MRP and expenses incurred during the production and distribution of the book.
Profit = MRP – Expenses (Distribution Cost + Production Cost).
Writers who use Notion Press Publishing Platform get 70% of the net profits from the sale of each copy of the book.
Sample Calculation: Let us assume, the MRP of a book is Rs.100, and the production cost of the book is Rs.30/-.
Now, the profit would be calculated as
Profit = MRP - (Distribution Cost + Production Cost)
Profit = 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 Notion Press Publishing Program (100% net profits):
Notion Press Online Store= Rs.50
Other Stores= Rs. 20
Earnings from eBooks vary based on the type of distribution your readers have chosen while purchasing and also factors like data transfer fee based on the size of your eBook file. Some of the different ways an eBook can be sold are,
Since it is difficult to predict how your readers might consume your content, the final earnings for each eBook sold can only be determined after a sale has occurred. Notion Press deducts a 20% processing fee from your monthly eBook earnings to account for international tax deductions, exchange rates and wire transfer fee.
Profits from print book sales in India:
All print books sold via Indian eCommerce sites are reported on your Author Dashboard as soon as orders are confirmed and determined for each month. Your earnings for each month is paid out within 40 days from the end of the month the sales are reported in.
For example, all sales for the month of January are paid to you by the 10th of March.
Profits from International print book sales:
Print copies of your book are sold via various international eCommerce sites and are updated on your author dashboard every 90 days after accounting for any returns and taxes levied on the book in each geography where your book sells. Your earnings for each month are paid to you in the subsequent month.
For example, all international sales in the month of January are updated on your dashboard in the month of April and the profits from January are paid to you on the 10th of May.
Profits from eBook sales:
eBooks are sold across the world by multiple retailers. eBook sales across various retailers and geographies are reconciled and updated on your dashboard every 90 days. Your earnings for each month are paid to you in the subsequent month.
