XinXii Signs Distribution Deal With Scribd

XinXii Signs Distribution Deal With Scribd Streaming eBooks Subscriptions Scribd scored a victory today in its battle to be the largest ebook subscription service. It's just signed a deal with  Xinxii, the Berlin-based ebook distributor, to add more indie published titles to the Scribd catalog.

Xinxii clients can now elect to distribute their ebooks to Scribd and earn 70% of the net proceeds each time a book is loaned to a reader. To be more accurate, all titles carried by Xinxii will be automatically added to the Scribd catalog unless an author opts out by 20 March.

Scribd has also worked out deals with Smashwords, BooksonDemand, and Draft2Digital. Readers can enjoy indie published titles distributed by those firms for $9 or 8 euros per month.

  1. But is what constitutes “net proceeds” still a bit fuzzy?

    I’m betting it is. At the end of the day, 70% to the distributor still leaves an ever-shrinking amount to the authors themselves.

    When the ebook subscription bubble finally bursts, it’s not going to be pretty.

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I distribute through BookBaby and XinXii and so now have to cancel one of them for distribution to Scribd.

    BookBaby also distributes to Scribd, by the way.
