Listing is Free.

We want you to succeed. That's why we handle the entire distribution process for you with a single contract and absolutely no listing fee.

We take a small percentage of the royalties when your audiobook sells. We only make money when you make money.

Let's break it down.

Say you set your list price to $10 — here’s how the money is paid out for each sale. In this example, an a la carte retailer is paying 40% royalties, and sells the book at list price.

You keep 80% of the royalties.

We manage all the payments and royalties and then pay you monthly.

There are a variety of business models used by different distributors.
Actual numbers will vary per sale.

Distributor Details

While our distribution fee is always just 20% of your royalty share, the different business models used by retailers and libraries will impact that number in significant ways.

Some business models will pay you up to 50% on every sale and others will offer slightly lower pay outs with broad exposure to listeners who can check out your audiobook as part of a subscription.

By selecting all (or most) of the distributors on our list, you will achieve a balance of maximum royalties and broad audience exposure — that's a strong sales strategy.

Getting to know the different models is an important part of understanding the many ways your audiobook can be sold and the value of using an array of distributors to get it out to the world. Read more about each business model and how your royalties are calculated here:
