Why should we use AfricanBooks.com instead of one of the big-name eBook sellers popular today?

AfricanBooks.com caters to African writers which these other big-name companies do not. Even in 2022, these big-name companies do not pay author royalties to African-based banks or mobile money platforms, meaning that most African-based authors cannot earn royalties on the most popular platforms. Due to this, the content by African-based writers is severely limited on those platforms, making AfricanBooks.com the largest hub for African content worldwide! We offer a wide selection of original works at friendly prices.

What does it cost to use AfricanBooks.com?

AfricanBooks.com offers FREE publishing to authors and publishers. This means that it is completely free for authors to upload and publish their books. When a reader goes online to buy a book, the author is paid a royalty for each book sold, and the platform takes a small percentage to help us pay for the hosting costs we incur to keep the platform running. That’s it! Post for free and get paid! We take all the risk, you get all the reward.

Do you have to be African or based in Africa to use AfricanBooks.com?

Not at all! Our site is available to everyone! We are building a global community at ABC, one that loves to read and is not hindered by continents or borders. That said, we do cater most to Africans because many of the other eBook platforms have been inaccessible to them up to this point.

Can I share an eBook I bought with others?
