Bookseller Return Program

This program allows your POD Perfect bound/Paperback book to be marked returnable to the brick and mortar booksellers for the life of your book as long as it stays under the FEDP imprint. This program is essential if you want your book placed on a shelf at any of the commercial book sellers. Please visit our FAQ section for further details regarding the return program. If you order this program after your book has been in our system, it will take 15-60 days for the ‘returnable’ status to update in the databases of the brick and mortar booksellers. This is not an automatic global program, this program is active per territory.

If you pick this option, your royalty will be calculated and placed under a trade discount of 53% instead of our standard 40%. The two main components needed to have your book on a shelf require the 53% discount, and the Bookseller Return Program.

Special – If you order the USA territory, you will receive the UK territory in additional at no extra charge. A savings of $649.00
