London based SnapMeUp is offering a new service for established businesses to earn commissions on ebook sales. The company will offer the ability for customers to scan QR codes via their smartphones or tablets to purchase ebooks. The businesses taking part in this will earn a small percentage of each sale.
The new product has been developed by Enterprise Nation and publishers, Harriman House, with support from international payments provider PayPal, which is the payment platform powering purchases. Not only can you buy one of the twenty ebooks the company is launching, but also the print versions, too.
Initially, SnapMeUp has partnered with Staples stores to facilitate the ebook sales process. Recently the company has partnered with 50 Bizspace business centers to offer the books there, as well.
Many of the books that are available can be read on myriad of platforms and are meant to be software agnostic. You can use ePub for reading in iBooks on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod, or on the Kobo reader, or any other open ebook reader software of devices. The books are also available in a Kindle friendly format to read on their entire line of e-readers and tablets.
