Author Arena FAQs
Do I have to sign a contract?
You have to sign a contract agreeing to our terms of business and giving us permission to sell your book through our Amazon Seller Account, but you won’t be tied in for a period of time. We just ask you give us 30 days notice.
Do I need to have an ISBN to be able to use this service?
Yes, you need to have an ISBN so we can add your book to Amazon.
How do you know how much stock to hold?
We'll make a decision on this together based on sales projections. We can then set low and high stock levels. Once you hit the low stock level, we'll let you know and you can order more. If you have an event coming up or a big marketing push, you can easily order more for stock.
Is there a minimum order?
Yes. There is a minimum order of 100 copies to use this service.
Do you charge for storage of my stock?
No. We figure we've got the space which we pay for anyway so storage of your stock is free.
What is the difference between your fulfilment service and Author Arena?
The Author Arena is for people who want to sell their books on Amazon but don't want all the hassle of setting up and managing an Amazon Seller Account. Fulfilment of orders received through the Author Arena is included in this service.
Our fulfilment service is for orders from different platforms; this may be from your website, an event you held or Facebook etc.
For authors who want to sell their books on Amazon and another platform both services will be used.
Why join Author Arena rather than Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)?
While KDP is great for first-time authors, they only offer a fixed royalty rate of 60%. With Author Arena, we do not take a cut of your royalty, so you receive 100% of the profit from each sale.
Author Arena also gives you greater control. For example, you can run price promotions or even free giveaways. You can also run sponsored ads in the UK – something currently unavailable on KDP.
