Sales Channels


One of the main issues facing self-published authors is how to go about selling their books. Traditional Sales channels such as bookstores are difficult, expensive and time-consuming to penetrate, requiring time spent in visiting stores and chains to “sell” the idea of their books. Once this exercise has successfully been accomplished, a certain amount of capital outlay is required to print what could be substantial numbers of books. Then follow the logistics issues of getting your books to the outlets.

Selling online is, therefore, probably the most cost-effective solution, but issues of logistics can also make this problematic.

SA Catholic Online Books offers its authors a number of sales and logistics channels, including:

Print On Demand Sales

We can make your print book available on a print-on-demand basis on Takealot, South Africa’s version of Amazon, as well as on Amazon itself. Print on demand means you never have to worry about holding stock or mailing out books – simply direct customers to your book’s page on Takealot or Amazon!
