Publishers: How You Save Time & Money with Pubnet
Who should use Pubnet?
Pubnet is for publishers who currently take orders manually from their customers and want to reduce costs by trading efficiently with a growing base of thousands of stores.
If you can answer “yes” to these questions, then Pubnet is for you:
Do you currently have many retail accounts who order directly from you?
Do you want to increase the revenue you receive from orders currently going through wholesalers or other third parties?
Do you want to save time and reduce errors by automating and centralizing the flow of purchase orders, acknowledgments, and shipping notifications through your order fulfillment system?
Are you capable of sending and receiving documents via EDI?
Still not sure if Pubnet is right for you? Contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

What does it cost suppliers to use Pubnet?
After an initial setup cost, publishers, wholesalers and distributors pay an annual fee based on your specific use of our network (the quantity of data sent to and from your bookseller accounts), so pricing varies. Pubnet is always free to retailers after an initial setup fee.
Smaller publishers have told us they consider the initial setup and subscription costs to be low and well worth it. Contact us and we will be happy to give you an estimate.
Is it hard to get started with Pubnet?
If you are currently able to send and receive common documents via EDI, the short answer is “no”. In fact, many new vendors are up and running in days.
And, if you do run into problems, our experienced support staff will be happy to work with you at no additional cost until any technical issues are resolved.

Pubnet vs Pubeasy: Should I use both?
If you have an EDI-capable order processing system and are able to fulfill orders directly, then Pubnet gives you access to a wider network of direct retail accounts. If you are a mid-sized or larger publisher with the ability to share price, availability and order status information via SOAP, then let Pubeasy help reduce your customer service costs.
