  • Can ePubMATIC convert full-color illustrated books, and graphic novels?
  • ePubMATIC has vast experience in converting highly illustrated children books, picture books and graphic novels. These kinds of books are usually most suited to convert as 'fixed-layout e-book' formats, that is to say for devices such as tablets or computers.

  • Are my files safe?
  • The entire platform is under the GeoTrust Inc. https with data encryption to 2048 bits. Our SSL technology makes use of encryption systems for reliable and reserved communications so as to prevent any tampering, falsification or data interception.

  • How quickly can you process an order?

    The payment is always made after delivery, then pay only if you're 100% satisfied. It could not be better protected!

  • How metadata influences your e-book sales?
  • Metadata means, complete information about your e-book to help retailers and librarians sell / catalog it, and to help potential readers know about your book completely.
    In today's cyber world, accurate and more proper metadata of your e-book will definitely reach widely and increase your e-book sales.
    ePubMATIC’s metadata creation tool supports you to create rich metadata very easily without any issues.

  • Why is creating an ebook a good investment?
  • The creation of an ebook, containing mostly text contents, costs 0.59 $ (0.49 €) / page, so a 100-page-book conversion would cost you 59.00 $ (49.00 €).

    When do I reach the break-even point? Consider the following:
    • ebook sellig price: 6.50 $ (5.00 €)
    • distributor and sales store commissions: 25%, equals 1.63 $ (1.25 €)
    to gain back the money you have invested you need to sell... just 13 copies!
    From the 14th copy on you start earning, avoiding book re-printings, return copies, paper pulping... Do you think it is too much for you? If one does not get to sell 13 copies of a book, may it is better to take a career change into consideration! :-)

  • Creating (and sell) ebooks means promoting my own publishing house?
  • Yes! Not only you will earn money with the ebooks that you sell, but also your ebook publishing house will benefit from this in terms of promotion.
    How?
    Let's assume you create 1 ebook and you sell it through a distributor, on 50 stores: there are going to be 50 online pages showing your publishing house name and a link to the website.
    What if I created 10 ebooks? On 50 stores: 500 links to your publishing house's website.
    What if I created 50 ebooks? 2500 links! You would appear in the first positions of Google search results.
    This is because the higher is the number of links pointing to your website, the better your PageRank becomes (see formula wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagerank).
