Since 2010 PublishersMarketplace.com has provided a premium service to literary agents, scouts, authors and other qualified independent publishing professionals for accessing Bookscan‘s comprehensive database of actual, weekly print book sales data from around the country — built right in to the familiar, easy-to-use PM website and interface. Now we are pleased to add an upgrade option to the Bookscan PM service, adding real ebook sales data on a monthly basis from the PubTrack Digital Service, at a very reasonable additional fee — and once again, with the simple look-and-feel of PM.
PubTrack Digital presents actual, complete US ebook unit sales, as recorded on the books of the participating publishers, since 2010. Our service provides unlimited searching by author name, and will show the most recently-reported month’s sales, the year-to-date sales, and the lifetime sales for each title. It also includes PTD’s monthly bestseller list of the top 100 ebooks. Currently over 400 publishers report sales through PTD. (Note that PubTrack Digital reports monthly—not weekly—and on a time-delayed basis, with results posted approximately three to four months after the fact.)
We are very pleased to continue and expand upon our relationship with Bookscan, and to offer the community expanded access to these core sales databases. Our new PTD service is available as an upgrade to Bookscan PM customers only — and all publishers of any size remain serviced directly by Bookscan only. Please view the pages linked within this story for more information, as well as to apply for enrollment.
