Whether 1 or 100 copies are ordered, FastPencil sells POD (print on demand) books and eBooks. When a print book is purchased, it is produced and shipped to the buyer. Using the POD method, the author does not have to purchase or store a large inventory of books.
- When publishing a print book, authors are asked to purchase the distribution service plus at least one book proof (at "author cost"), in addition to shipping, handling and taxes. The reason we require that at least one book is purchased is to ensure that the expectations and quality of each publication, and that it is approved for distribution.
- When customers order a book from the FastPencil Marketplace, readers are able to purchase the book at retail price, the requested quantity will be added to the shopping cart, in addition to shipping, handling and taxes.
Typical shipping options, at varying costs, may include:
- FedEx Ground Home Delivery
- USPS Express
- FedEx Ground
- FedEx 2 Day
