I’m a Retailer. How do I sign up?
First, you’ll want to go to our Retailer Access Area and register for an account using the controls on the right side of the login page.
It is entirely free.
Then, use our contact form and let us know you’ve registered an account! We’ll work with you to verify your status as a brick & mortar retailer of games or books, and then follow up with approving your account. Make sure you let us know who you are, where you’re located, and how we can get a peek at your store (maybe an online photo gallery, or something else).
Once your account is approved you’ll be able to access the PDFs of all the eligible products for all of our publisher-members. With access to those PDFs, you can start giving them out to your customers when they order the associated print product in your store, by sending them a download code they can use with this website, or downloading copies to your own machine and burning copies to CD, copying over to the customer’s USB drive, or whatever else works for you. It’s up to you whether you want to keep the transaction entirely in-house, keeping the customer’s attention on you as the place to take advantage of this program, or if you’re fine with them coming to our website to download the PDFs.
All we ask is that you not sell our products at steep discounts — a little “frequent buyer program” action is fine, of course.
Please note, we are still in our prototype phase, so the occasional bug may crop up. But we’d love to have you!

I’m a Publisher. How do I sign up?
It is entirely free.
Use our contact form and let us know you’re interested! We’ll want you to buy into our philosophy and our approach — trusting brick and mortar retail stores to give out your PDFs, and giving out those PDFs free of charge with the purchase of the corresponding physical book. You are not restricted by this program – you can still give away or sell ebooks however you like. Learn more about our perspective over on the What Is This? page.
