Direct-to-Consumer Electronic and Print Content Sales from Your Website, Made Easy
Reach your readers directly through internet-based ordering and online sales of printed books and eBooks with our Sheridan Connect eCommerce solution. To ensure a pleasant shopping experience for your customers, we create a branded eCommerce site that links seamlessly with your existing website. Sheridan hosts your eCommerce site and manages the shopping cart experience as well as payment processing—allowing you to focus on what you do best, creating and marketing your content.
Single Fulfillment Solution for both Print and Electronic Content
Sheridan Connect’s primary function is to catalog your available book and journal anthology products and offer them for sale in multiple formats such as eBooks, softcover, and hardcover. When a consumer makes a purchase, eBooks are made available instantly for download or online reading. Print orders can either be fulfilled from a traditional warehouse or produced on-demand by Sheridan and shipped directly to the consumer.
Content Protection Options
Optional Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology ensures your downloadable eBooks are restricted to authorized users only. If you need protection with more flexibility, online reading (an alternative to DRM) offers enhanced study tools—such as flashcard and study guide creation—along with the ability to restrict printing or make content available for reading offline.
Easy. Empowering. Effective.
From administrative tools that allow you to instantly add titles and update pricing, to real-time reporting and analytics showing consumer buying behavior, Sheridan Connect makes the process of direct-to-consumer selling a breeze.
