In October 2000, Pearson Education commissioned eBooks.com to provide ebook marketing and fulfillment services. Since then, publishers around the world have relied on eBooks.com for ebook solutions that meet their changing needs. In that time we’ve developed an impressive set of tools designed to make publishers’ lives simpler and their businesses more profitable.
You know that we know what we’re doing with ebooks. Our technology stack is mature, stable and secure. It hosts millions of items from thousands of book publishers. We’re ingesting 30,000 new titles every month and delivering them securely to readers in every country in the world, plus the International Space Station.
