PublishDrive is an intelligent ebook publishing platform, promising to increase ebook sales for publishers in over 70 countries. PublishDrive allows publishers to control all part of the ebook management process, from production and metadata management through to distribution, business intelligence analytics, sales reports and billing.
PublishDrive sells titles on a royalty-share basis to more than 400 stores and 240,000 digital libraries worldwide including both major stores such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and local stores, schools, universities and public libraries.
It has just entered the rapidly growing audiobook market, and introduced an “earn-as-you sell” payment system, meaning that publishers receive their earnings no matter whether retailers come through with the cash.
PublishDrive was dreamt up by Kinga Jentetics, a marketer with previous roles at Zurich Financial Services and McKinsey. She could not find a reliable, easy-to-use and affordable solution to publish her master thesis about how music affects the image of a country. Once PublishDrive was launched in 2015, it was wonderful to see how global markets reacted to her book. Despite the niche topic, she received purchases from Brazil, Mexico, and even China.
