1. Go to Control Panel > Publications or Control Panel > Content > My inventory:

2. Click on Upload, and this window will pop up :

3. To upload your PDF, EPUB, or MP3, drag the file to the box or click and choose the archive from your documents.

If you're going to upload a PDF, here are some recommendations for you to be able to provide your readers a better experience.

4. Complete the information that you want your publication to have and the metadata as well.

The only mandatory field is the title.

5. Once you have filled in the fields that you want you can click Publish and wait a few minutes until the publication finishes to process.

We share with you some clarifications about the fields to load:

  • Name: Required. It is the title of your publication.

  • Description: add a description of your publication to catch your users, it will be shown in the book's file when you click on Purchase.

  • Prices: set the price of your publication in up to two currencies.

  • External ID or ISBN: add an identifier for your publication or the unique identification code for books. You can also use it as a field to uniquely identify your publications if they are not books.

  • Collection: this will help you to create sales plans or shelves. Adding any alphanumeric character will create a collection.

    For example: if you put in the collection field "Premium access" to some publications and "General access" to all the others, you will be able to create two plans, one for the general public and another one for those who purchase a Premium plan.

  • Keywords: Add keywords so that your readers can quickly find the post. When your users use the search engine in the main section, the publication will appear among the results.

  • Date and time: this is the date corresponding to the edition or publication. You can also use it to internally order the publications in any way you want, as long as it is not a requirement for the publication (e.g. date of edition of a book). Note that if the date is after the upload date, the publication will be available from that day.

  • Language: choose the language of your publication. You can choose between Spanish, English, Portuguese and Italian.

  • Audience: indicates which audience the publication corresponds to. You can choose between Children, Teenagers or Adults.

  • Private material: here you can add additional material that will only be visible to users with access to that publication. For example, you can add a link to a video, additional text, a video, etc. First, you must enable this tool, here we show you how to do it.

  • Metadata: you can add the metadata fields you need. As standard we include:
    - Collection,
    - Category,
    - Author,
    - Country,
    - Publisher and
    - BISAC.

    None of these fields are mandatory, you will be able to use only the ones you need and the others will not be shown anywhere in your Library or Store.

    For the rest of the taxonomies in which you will load your metadata, you will be able to use them both to build carousels in your store, as well as to create filters in the top menu.

  • Offer preview: enable this option if you want to allow your readers to preview your content, which will be 10% by default.
    Also, choose if you want to ask the user to log in to access the preview.

The indicated percentage can be modified only for PDF and MP3 files. You must write to us so that we can do it from our side. Please note that the change applies to all publications.

  • Mark as free: choose which publications will be freely accessible to attract new users that you can then transform into subscribers. At any time you decide you can modify this option and it will no longer be available for free. (Depending on the plan purchased you can modify this functionality. (Remember that from here you can review the features of the plans)

    • Request Login: decide if those users who can read the free publications must register previously (to capture their data) or if they can access freely (for example to send in a mailing campaign and giving direct and simple access to those who read).

    • Free until: set the date when it will stop being free so that you don't have to remember to change it. This option is ideal for launching or marketing campaigns.
