First, you need a subscription to a Premium or Optimum publisher plan. For each sale, Stripe, our payments provider, will automatically take out a transaction fee (generally 20-30 cents, plus a percentage usually under 3%) and a 30% Issuu commission fee. The rest of your revenue will be automatically posted in your Stripe account.
Stripe is a leading online payments platform, and we’re partnering with them so publishers can charge for their publications and collect credit and debit card payments from their readers. When you first set up your publications for sale, you’ll be able to connect an existing Stripe account or create a new one for free.
Readers can purchase your magazine from directly within the preview edition or via a direct link. Readers can then read the full edition on issuu.com, and in the free Issuu iOS and Android apps. Readers can use any device; no need to download any Flash plug-ins.
Readers will pay in advance and automatically receive access to your latest issue and future issues. Subscriptions do not auto-renew. You’ll be able to customize subscription duration, number of issues included, and price. You can also choose to not include a publication in a subscription, and make it available for single-sale only.
To entice readers to purchase your magazine, you can select which pages to include in a free preview edition, which will appear on issuu.com and in the Issuu mobile apps with a prominent BUY button. You can also embed it on your website, blog and social media.
During the upload process you can choose to allow purchasers to download the PDF. However, for the best experience, we recommend that readers access and read their purchases on issuu.com or in our free iOS and Android apps.
