Sell ePub

Status: Tell Us More
by Emerging Expert on ‎04-15-2013 12:20 PM

Best Buy makes a lot of money selling Kindle and Nook.  Why not carry ePub books for sale.  There are at least 2 ePub vendors out there that I know of that carry 80% of the worlds ePub books in multiple formats. 

 

This would be an online endeavor. 

 

Offer Silver Premier members a 10% discount on ePub

 

Best Buy could even set up kiosks in their stores that would allow people to purchase books right there and just plug in your reader or connect via USB and down load the book instantly or have it queue to a server to allow the customer to download it right away via Best Buys in house Wi Fi (if such a thing exists)

 

However, and don't know this, but I suppose Best Buy may already have legal agreements in place with Amazon and B&N that forbids them from selling ePub.

I guess it's possible we have contracts that prevent us from carrying this content, but it never hurts look into it. Given we carry a large selection of tablets and eReaders I can see how selling these books could make sense. Does anyone else want us to sell this content? Remember to vote for an idea if you like it.
