Booklisting Levels

Open Merchant

In an "open merchant" format, authors & publishers can list with booksXYZ and sell elsewhere, or they can sell through us. If a publisher chooses the latter, we:

  • generate a unique web address for each of your titles that can be used in e-mails, e-newsletters, websites, and the like (e.g., Audubon: A Retrospective);
  • provide tools for instantly and constantly updating your information;
  • provide tools for marketing and promoting your titles;
  • process credit cards through our secure server;
  • provide accounting records;
  • and most importantly, provide an on-line platform that booklisters and readers know they can trust.

In addition, booklisters offering more than two titles are provided with our PrivateShelf™ feature, a unique web address that will list only their books (e.g, The Center for Louisiana Studies, Coaches Choice).  For publishers with more than 25 titles, we can also design a custom navigation bar, as can be viewed down the right side of these two examples.

We offer four levels of listing for titles on booksXYZ, and a website service. Each level offers more services and benefits than the levels following it.


Full Service Listings are for books sold through our website for a $10 one-time fee per book (to a maximum of $100 for booklisters with multiple titles, i.e., all books after the first 10 titles are listed at no additional charge), with 85% of the sale price and all shipping charges coming to the author/booklister. All of our profits go to education nationwide.

Please note that Full Service listings sell at over 10 times the rate as the other three listings.

Full Service Listings provide all basic bibliographic information: Title, Subtitle, Author, Cover Type, ISBN, Dewey Decimal number, Library of Congress number, Price, Number of Pages, Cover type, Shipping, Three Subject Codes, Binding, Paper Weight, if Dustcovered, if Acid Free Paper, if Coated Paper, if Neutral pH Paper, Copyright Year, Keywords for search engine optimization, a Brief Summary, number of BW and Color Illustrations, Recommended Readers' Ages, and the Printer/Publisher. Full Service listings also provide two book cover graphics: a 20K graphic in the general listings with other books, and a 40K graphic in the separate book page. Also, the separate book window will include a 500 word synopsis, a 500 word excerpt, and a 500 word compendium of reviews and comments from critics and/or readers.

Search results for Full Service titles appear like this, and includes the cover, the title, author, cover type, and a brief description.

Basic Listings are for books sold through our website for no up-front fee, with 85% of the sale price and all shipping charges coming to the author/booklister. For Basic Listings, booksXYZ provides the same services listed under "Open Merchant", above. All profits above overhead costs will go toward education nationwide.

Basic Listings contain all "Affinity" information, but without links to other sales websites. The author's name may serve as a link to the author's booksXYZ website, or to any other author website where the book is not sold. The title of the book will be a link to a separate book page that shows Title; Author; Price; Shipping Costs; Total costs; ISBN; Dewey; Printer/Publisher; Category; Subcategory; No. of Pages; Book Binding; Cover Type; Paper Weight; if Dustcovered; Author's Personal Website; and Recommended Readers' Ages.

As noted previously however, Full Service listings generate over 10 times the sales that Basic Sales do.
