Another important factor related to selling your book online is to make sure that you

public.
We have seen that in the past, there have been incidents where people have p ut their
books (or other similar intellectual properties) up for sale on a website and they fall
victim to frauds, losing their rightful money. Fraudsters hack into the database of the
website and walk away with whatever they require, without leaving a single print of
their theft behind.
This is something very serious for you as a publisher, because you have to receive
payment for each copy sold. In the modern world today, even if you have a contract
with a publishing website or the likes,
they will not give you more than a
small amount of principle to buy the
rights, making you sell your book.
A clause in the agreement that you
sign tethers your financial rewards.
That clause clearly states that you will
get a commission out of each copy
that sells. If the publisher is feeling generous, he will include bonuses for you. For
example, if the book crosses a certain number of copies sold, let us say about five
thousand or ten thousand, and then the bonus amount depends on the expected
number of copies sold and is subject to negotiations from both yours and the
publishers' side.
