We provide eBook conversion and distribution support for book publishers. Publishers typically provide a PDF of the completed book, but we also accept InDesign files and printed books that require scanning and conversion to digital file format. Publishers receive both Mobi and EPUB files and distribution is optional. (Click here if you have a manuscript or click here if you want to learn more about our eBook development service.)
Outsourcing to SellBox is ideal for small and mid-size publishers that do not wish to develop the design, programming and quality control skills necessary to support the fast changing technology landscape of eBook programming. If or when the time comes to bring these skills in-house, we will assist you with training and support.
Our prices are based on a review of your PDF and depend on book complexity and the volume of books you plan to convert. Generally eBook conversion prices begin at $250 but the price ultimately depends on:
- Number of endnotes
- Number of images
- Table processing requirements
- Table of contents—length and number
- Use of sidebars
You receive a completed eBook for review within 10 business days. Rush service is also available.
Quality Control and Testing
Each eBook is put through a multi-point testing process that also includes testing for compatibility with leading eReaders such as those from Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble. We also guarantee they pass EPUB Validation.
Distribution to Online Stores
We advocate direct distribution to online eBook stores and can assist our clients with establishing accounts, or setting up new titles in existing accounts. We assist with selecting keywords, categories and editing descriptions to maximize marketing and SEO effectiveness.

We pride ourselves on our personal service and initiative. If we see an opportunity to improve your title’s reading experience, or enhance the marketability of your title, we will volunteer our thoughts. FAQs about our eBook services.
