SELLING eBOOKS ON OTHER RETAILER SITES.

I just want to know if I can sell my eBook published by Lulu on other retailer sites which are not Lulu patners?

    Using a Lulu ISBN, no.

    If you mean ePubs then this is a list they will, or possibly will be, listed on via Lulu >>

    You can publish elsewhere, but not with a Lulu ISBN, but I am not sure where there is left to publish judging by that list which Lulu adds to often.

     

    If you mean a PDF then they cannot have Lulu ISBNs anyway so only remain for sale on Lulu.

  • I use three different retailers, Lulu, Smashwords, and KDP.  However, each retailer publishes the book separately, each using its own ISBN or ASIN as the case may be.  The book retains the same title and the same content, but must adhere to the format and publication requirements of each retailer, all having slightly different requirements.

     

    As far as I know, there is no way that you can sell a book published by either retailer on another retailer's site.  I could be wrong.  :-)

    It depends on the clauses they have, but you cannot use one place's ISBN or whatever with another publishing site.

     

    But as far as I recall none of those demand exclusivity and the copyright is yours, so you can publish wherever you want.

     

    I publish printed and ePubs via Lulu and 'Kindles' direct with Amazon.
