Canada's biggest eBook retailer is bringing its popular service home!
In May 2017, we were excited to announce that Rakuten Kobo was rolling out Kobo Plus—a new revenue-sharing model for authors distributing eBooks to the Netherlands and Belgium.
Now we’re just as excited to announce that Kobo is bringing the same great opportunity to its home turf, with the launch of Kobo Plus Canada!
Not only is Canada the place Kobo calls home, it’s their strongest performing territory, where they have the most reach. So opening up the program there is a huge opportunity for authors.

If you’re already participating in Kobo Plus, there’s nothing more to do. Your books will automatically be included in the new territory!

The Kobo Plus Payout Model is based on the number of readers subscribing and reading books through the service. This is a little different than some other subscription models you may have experienced. The revenue-sharing model is based on the number of subscribers that Kobo Plus gets.

The more subscribers the service has, the more revenue there is to share.

And now, with Canada joining the Netherlands and Belgium, the pool of subscribers is bound to increase. More people to discover your books!

Here are some of the advantages of opting in to Kobo Plus through Draft2Digital:

  • No exclusivity—While you’re enrolled in Kobo Plus, you can distribute your books to any other online bookseller that you wish! There’s no exclusivity requirement to be in the program.

  • Royalties—Royalties are based on the current Kobo Plus Payout, which increases as subscriptions rise. Your royalty share is based on a formula that takes into account the Minutes Consumed—the combined number of minutes read by paying subscribers in a given month.

  • Reach an expanding market—Now that Kobo Plus is expanding into the Canadian market, you’ll reach English and French-speaking readers as well as the Dutch-speaking readers in the Netherlands and Belgium. More opportunities to reach more readers and to earn more revenue! All with no extra effort on your part.

Draft2Digital and Kobo have always had a great relationship, and we’re
thrilled to offer our authors this chance to reach even further. Welcome to
the North!
