Nettpress Memberships and Transactions
How Much Is Nettpress?
What is my monthly membership for?
We only charge for Nettpress Pro upgrade options (Nettpress Premium is coming soon). These options include powerful tools that make marketing your book to the world easy.
How does Nettpress billing work?
Every new Nettpress Pro or Nettpress Premium (coming soon) member subscribes for free with a 30 day trial. At the end of your trial you will automatically be charged for your selected membership upgrade. you will then be billed on the anniversary of your membership purchase date monthly. You can cancel anytime or downgrade to free again if you choose.
What is the Nettpress billing cycle?
Your Nettpress monthly membership will be processed each month on the date you upgraded your membership after your free trial. If your billing date is scheduled for a date that does not occur in a given month, you’ll be billed on the last day of that month instead. Monthly charges are billed at the beginning of your billing cycle and may take a few days after the billing date to appear on your account as Nettpress.com.
Why does Nettpress use Stripe for check out?
Nettpress uses Stripe for all transactions because it is the safest credit card processing available today. Your details are NEVER held by Nettpress or by Stripe so nobody can hack us and get your details. That is why we chose Stripe as our merchant facility.
Is Nettpress a secure site?
You can be assured that whatever you subscribe to on our site is secure and we promise that we will never sell your details to any of those horrible marketing companies or anyone else ever! Your information security is of the utmost importance to us and we would never betray your trust by selling or giving it to anyone… period!
Why do I pay transaction fees and what are they?
Every time you buy something in a store the shop pays a merchant transaction fee to the bank on the purchase and they build all of these costs into the price you pay. Like retail shops we have this type of fee when you pay your monthly membership but we have included it. Our merchant facility charges us transaction fees when your books are sold as well so we are forced to hand these on to you at a flat rate of 6% for book sales. There is no profit in this for us. Unfortunately the banks get us every time!

What does Nettpress do for me?

Wouldn’t that be fantastic! You would walk away with a spring in your step and know the world respected your work just like Nettpress knows it should be because every author has an audience… now with Nettpress that audience can find you!
With Nettpress it will be easy to promote your stories and who knows, Netflix or Hollywood might ask to make it into a hit movie – the ultimate prize for your efforts.

How is Nettpress different from other publishers?
TRADITIONAL PUBLISHERS AND CURRENT SELF-PUBLISHING SOLUTIONS
Traditional publishers are focused on making you pay large fees for their services and then making you pay AGAIN through high commissions on your book sales. Traditional and other self-publishers (the others) come with cumbersome baggage left over from their past old fashioned business models.
NETTPRESS IS DIFFERENT
At Nettpress it’s all included for FREE. We are focused on YOUR SUCCESS because we know that when you’re successful so will we be.
We’re built for the future – nimble and flexible to suit a modern world, that’s how we can be free, making it fair for everyone. New or established writers both have the same opportunities to be famous and profitable with Nettpress.
What genres is Nettpress accepting at the moment?
All genres, all of the time. There is only one exception – we don’t allow propaganda that has the intent to bully anyone or promote violence toward people in the real or digital world in any way. Don’t test us on this!
How do I make a submission to Nettpress publishing?
Just subscribe and publish instantly through your Author Dashboard…. There is no archaic submission process.
How many books can I publish per month?
As many as you like…. There is no restriction to the number as long as it is YOUR work of course.
Do I retain my copyrights or does Nettpress?
You do! It’s your work not ours and we will never claim any rights to your work, that wouldn’t be fair. We’ll just be the proud publisher when you’re successful. That’s another reason why we don’t take any of your book sales profits! So this means that when you get discovered by Hollywood or Netflix, it’s all yours!
Can I get my book in hard copy through Nettpress?
Not directly yet… but we have printing partners that we trust and will help you prepare your manuscript in the appropriate format so it is super simple to deal directly cutting out the middle man. We do this to save you money and time. Win win. Then once they’ve been delivered you can sell them in your Nettpress Author Bookstore!
Can I get my ISBNs through Nettpress?
Not directly yet… but we are working on becoming an international reseller. We show you the best way to buy your ISBN numbers and what you need to do to create barcodes for them for free as part of The NIB Step by Step guides that you get access to when you become a member. ISBN numbers are the best way to track your copyright worldwide!
Can I register my books with my national library through Nettpress?
No because this is different in every country. You will need to contact your local national library registrar directly. We link to major directories but for now we suggest you contact your local library for your local process. We have a whole section dedicated to this subject inside the members area.
Is marketing my book through Nettpress easy?
Yes! We have a whole section on how to do this in our step-by-step guides (The NIB) and you can use our exclusive Nettpress marketing tool THE NIBBLER in conjunction with the social sharing buttons and the Blog writing and promotion tool that are available to Nettpress Pro members. (Temporarily Included!)

What is the Nettpress Affiliate Club?
We pay you money through your Nettpress Affiliate Club (NAC) for spreading the news about Nettpress Pro and other paid for Nettpress products and it is completely free and easy to start earning. The affiliate marketing program comes on line automatically when we start charging for Nettpress Pro so watch this space. In the mean time why not create a free publishing account and learn why all authors should have a Nettpress Publishing account.
Why does Nettpress pay me to tell others about Nettpress?
Because we know that word of mouth marketing is the most powerful endorsement, so we are prepared to pay you handsomely for your efforts.
