Be the CEO of your Book
Setting the final MRP same or more than Min MRP is encouraged if you plan for only online distribution. If you have future planning of making your book available over physical stores, setting final MRP same or more than Risk-Free MRP is recommended. Brick & mortar stores often look for 50%-60% margin over the MRP so that they can provide a huge discount to their customers. We highly suggest to keep final MRP high and we can always make your book available over our store, Amazon, Flipkart or any other portals. Once we assign ISBN and set MRP, changing MRP may need additional processing time and cost, so it is safer to keep MRP high and provide discounts which are always in your control.
For books with black & white interior, we maintain at least 80-90 GSM of above-average papers whereas, for full-color interiors, we provide 90-120 GSM papers. In the case of board-books, we usually go with 700 GSM high-standard boards. Providing highest production quality is our speciality. If curious, you can buy any random book published by us and compare the quality with any of the available books by any other national or international publishers. You will see the difference.
NOTICE: The above calculation for cost per book and royalty is valid from June 1, 2017. Any publishing package payment received by us dated older than June 1, 2017, should go with the old cost per book and old royalty checker calculations. All of the cost-per-book calculations are estimations, which may vary based on market price.
MRP = Cost per book + Royalty + Platform Commission
