Publishers can now issue discount coupons

Create an discount coupon for members, authors, instructors, companies ...

You can promote your ebooks with custom discount coupons that recipients can redeem at discount coupons might be a useful item in your promotional toolkit.

If you’d like to enable a user or organisation to buy one or more of your titles at a discount, you can now login to the publisher hub and create a special discount coupon code, just for them.

Just type in the ISBN, the upper limit on the number of copies, and the discount you’d like to offer (say, 30%) and we’ll provide you with a special purpose coupon code to pass on to your customer. In turn, they might forward that coupon code to their users (students, staff, customers…), who can then claim the discount at checkout.


There are lots of permutations to this service. Some scholarly publishers provide discount coupons to textbook authors. The authors, in turn, pass the coupon to their students, who then buy their class texts at a discount.

If you have a promotional idea that involves discounts for special people, we can easily meet your needs.

Just contact us and we’ll be very glad to help.
