IMPORTANT: You must submit a price campaign sheet if you are awarded a BookBub. Follow these instructions to ensure you don't lose your coveted BookBub deal!
- Set the start date for the campaign at least 1-2 business days in advance of the Bookbub date. Keep an eye on the discount those first days to allow yourself time to resolve any issues at retailers before the Bookbub start.
- You must call out each territory separately in your price campaign sheet if it is not a free Bookbub. Many retailers will convert your price to local currency if not provided, which could result in the incorrect price for non-US territories.
- For example: 0.99 USD may convert to 1.49 GBP (VAT inclusive), 1.37 CAD, 1.35 AUD, or 1.12 EUR (VAT inclusive). If you need 0.99 for all currencies, you will need to call out each currency separately, taking VAT tax into account for the GBP and EUR prices. For 0.99 GBP / EUR, we recommend using 0.79 GBP and 0.99 EUR.
- Special note: Amazon has a minimum price of .99 for AUD, so your displayed price will be 1.09. That is expected. Use .99 AUD as the price, with AU as the territory if you have a .99 Bookbub. (They do accept free for AU.)
- We recommend using http://vatcalconline.com/ to help calculate your pricing. You can reference each European country VAT here: https://www.vatlive.com/vat-rates/european-vat-rates/
