So you've decided to take part in the KWL Promotions Tab beta program. Now what? Here are some great tips for submitting your title to Kobo promotions:
1) PLEASE! Do not blindly submit to every promotion you see! Take the time to read the promotion descriptions, and make sure your title fits all requirements, and the theme of the promotion. Submitting the third book in a series to a first in series sale is not going to win you any favours with our merchandiser.
2) Submit your best title! Unless specified otherwise, we typically only accept one title from a single author for each sale. We receive a high number of submissions, so we try to not to overfill our sales with a single authors books. Again, you're not going to win any favours with the merchandiser by mass submitting all of your titles.
3) Default price. What is this you may ask? Any price you input when submitting to a promo is the price you want your title to be during the promo. Whether that is the regular price of the book or a discounted price will depend on the promotion.
30% off sales
In these sales the discount is provided by promo code. The price you input should be the regular price of the book.
Price drop sale
For these sales you need to drop the price of your book to be included. It will usually say "$4.99 or less" or something similar. You are inputting a discounted price according to this rule.
Buy More Save More sale
For this type of sale you need to input the regular price of your book, as the discount happens during the checkout process.
The default price of your book depends on where you live. If you live in Canada, and the default currency of your book is CAD, when submitting to our sales, you will always be asked to put in the CAD price first. Then you will be asked to also include any prices that are required for the particular sale.
Please also not that we receive a high number of submissions to each promotion, so your title may not be selected every time, even if it meets all of the sales requirements.
