In my search for new platforms and links to use for social media I came across Payhip: https://payhip.com
Here's the lowdown when I tried pubhip....
1. No hosting fees.
2. Low 5% transaction fee - don't forget PayPal or Stripe's fees, they apply I'm sure. But 8% charge is better than say 30%.
3. Upload your book in several different formats.
4. Mobile accessible.
5. Gives you a different link to promote your book.
6. Authors set any price or if authors want...readers can set the price.
I don't see a whole lot of marketing going on, but the spirit of indies might drive traffic to Payhip and make it a success if they so choose. So, TRP will be putting our books on yet another platform. At the very least it gives us a) exposure and b) another link to send our readers to!!
Been checking out that link. I'm currently looking to get my first novella published and this seems like a good idea. Don't suppose you've had any feedback from it, have you?
