About the Program
The Bits and Mortar program benefits retailers by providing extra value for your customers by providing them with best of both worlds, physical and digital. Whenever you sell a book that offers a print-and-PDF bundle you can also provide the electronic version and keep the whole transaction in-house.
When You're Ready to Sign Up
Once you're ready to sign up for the Bits and Mortar program go create an account and then (after creating and logging into the account) apply for retailer access.
That application will help us verify your status, so we'll ask you 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).
After your account is approved you’ll be able to access the PDFs of all the eligible products for all of our publishers. 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.
We ask is that you not sell our products at steep discounts — a little “frequent buyer program” action is fine, of course.
Remember: You must create a user account before you sign up your store!
