Quarterly stipend, paid for referrals, and helping to support Binc!
GET PAID FOR REFERRALS
Refer a self-published author and earn a $35 referral fee when we select the book for placement. Refer an author with a manuscript and earn $300 if we decide to publish the manuscript through our hybrid publishing platform.
Books are shipped on Feb 1, May 1, August & November 1. As long as you submit your photo of the in-store display by the 15th of the first month of each quarterly placement, we will pay your store a guaranteed quarterly stipend of $50. If you do not post your photo by the 15th, your store will not be paid the stipend, but you are still eligible to receive referral payments.
HOW WE SELECT OUR BOOKS
Self-Published authors, authors published by small (traditional) publishers, and authors published by hybrid publishers submit their books to DartFrog at no upfront cost. Our team of evaluators thoroughly examine each submission. Books that pass our evaluation criteria as bookstore quality books are selected and placed into specially branded DartFrog sections in our partner bookstores. For books that do not pass our evaluation standards, the author has the opportunity to buy a detailed evaluation in which we identify the changes that are required. DartFrog also publishes our own books through DartFrog Plus, our hybrid publishing platform. These books are placed into all partner bookstores upon publication and promoted directly to 3200+ book clubs.
All DartFrog selected books are available for order directly through Ingram. DartFrog takes no percentage of your sales. You earn the full royalty from Ingram on every sale.
FULL RETAIL PRICE OF FIRST COPY
We send your store one copy of each title. You keep the full retail price of that first copy when it sells. All subsequent orders/sales are at the normal discounted rates you have with Ingram.
We make a donation to BINC for each submission received. So, when you refer any author to DartFrog, you are helping to support BINC.
