    How does Materica work?

    Materica is a self-publishing platform and bookstore. Our goal is to provide creators a place to sell their work without the hassle of dealing with print production and delivery. 

    • All copyright and/or trademark remain with the original author.
    • Keep 100% control over your work. 
    • Monitor your earnings using our dashboard.
    • Set your own pricing and earn 70% royalty. 

    Because there is no need for you to maintain any initial inventory, you are able to immediately monetize your work at very low cost. Materica handles all production and order delivery.

    We highly encourage writers, designers, photographers, and creators to explore self-publishing with us.

      How do I earn royalties, and how much can I earn?

      Royalties are paid out every 18th of the month or the next working day if it falls on a holiday or weekend.

      All listed partners will be given access to a sales dashboard where you can monitor sales and royalties.

      We give our partners 100% control over their own pricing. You are free to set your own selling price. By using our price calculator, you are able to immediately determine the book cost, the store commission cost, and your corresponding royalty per title after each sale. 

       

       

       

      As your partner, we will help market our listed titles to maximize sales. But you will also need to help by sharing amongst your fans and on social media the shop links to your product. 

      With the right pricing and marketing effort you will enjoy considerable royalties from your work.

       

      Who owns to copyright to my work?

      You will retain 100% ownership of your work. Materica and Gutenberg Print Pack Solutions are merely agents of production and sales. You may at anytime decide to discontinue your participation or discontinue the sale of certain works.
