Self Publishing Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

This agreement (the "Agreement") is a binding agreement between the individual ("you" or "self-publisher") and Materica Bookstore, a subsidiary of Gutenberg Print Pack Solutions ("we" or "us"). 

This Agreement provides the terms and conditions of your participation in the Materica self-publication and sales platform and bookstore ("program") consisting of:

  • Copyright or trademarks 
  • Ownership and control
  • Pricing, discounts, and promotions
  • Royalties and Payouts



Copyright and Trademarks

You agree to only submit works that are owned by yourself and are not in violation of any existing copyright or trademarks. You are solely liable for any copyright or trademark infringement claims which may arise during your participation in our program. 


Ownership and control

You retain 100% ownership and control over your work. You may at anytime decide to discontinue your participation in our program entirely or discontinue participation of specific works. We merely act as production and sales platform. 


Pricing, discounts, and promotions

Our pricing calculator is available at your convenience in order for you to calculate your own retail price (selling price) as well as the corresponding royalty from each sale through our bookstore. As store manager, we can at anytime, and without informing you, engage in promotional activities in order to boost store sales. We will make sure that any discounting activities will not result in negative or zero royalties. 


Royalties and Payouts

Participants in our program will be provided access to a sales dashboard containing sales figures and royalty computations. Royalty payout is scheduled every 18th of the month or the next working day if it falls on a holiday or a weekend. 

All participants are required to have Paypal or GCash account in order to participate as a self-publisher. All payouts will be coursed through Paypal or Gcash only.

Only fully paid orders are eligible for payout.


By continuing with your participation, you are consenting and agreeing to be bound by the conditions set forth in this agreement.
