Draft2Digital is shuttering Google Play and Playster
 
 
 
 
Draft2Digital will no longer offer
Google Play or Playster distribution.
 
Part of our job, at Draft2Digital, is to ensure that any distribution partnerships we offer are structured and maintained to a set of standards. We do this so that authors can continue to receive the same level of high quality that we’ve always offered, and can continue to trust that we are protecting their interests. Occasionally, this means vetting distribution channels to decide whether they should be included or excluded from our service.

As such, we have determined that distribution to Google Play and Playster are not in the best interest of our authors, and we will be removing distribution to these channels.

GOOGLE PLAY
Google Play’s current terms of service create a relationship with distributors like D2D that is neither manageable nor scalable, forcing authors and aggregators both to take extreme measures to be listed. Pricing changes, requirements for account management, and other restrictions imposed on our authors make Google Play an unattractive option.

Effective October 30th, Draft2Digital will no longer offer Google Play distribution, we will be closing our Google Play Distribution Beta program, and all titles will be taken down at that time.

PLAYSTER
We have been closely monitoring distribution via Playster for several months and have determined that the platform lacks the level of stability we require for our distribution partners. As a result, we will be removing Playster as a distribution channel for new books and ensuring that all books currently listed are removed as soon as Playster is officially closed. This is in the best interest of our publishing partners.

NOTE: Authors who are currently listed with these channels through Draft2Digital will be able to leave their books in each channel for the time being, but once the program is fully closed these books will no longer be available.
We always regret having to remove options for our authors but doing so in this instance allows us to continue to provide you with the best possible opportunities for getting your books in front of the right readers. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to keep Draft2Digital’s distribution at its current level of high quality.

Happy publishing,
The Draft2Digital Team
