I have my book direct and uploaded through Smashwords. On the exact same book, one is listed as free, (the Smashwords one) and one is listed at $4.99 (The B&N, because they won't price match, I guess).MacWillard said:I have a strange conundrum here: I signed up for both Smashwords and B&N directly, and posted my erotica series to both sites. All of my Smashwords sales have been through B&N, but I've also gotten some direct sales through B&N.
Is there a drawback to having both a direct upload on B&N and the distribution to B&N through Smashwords? Are my books posted twice (I tried looking and didn't see anything wrong there)?
It splits your ranking. You'll only get credit for the sales of that channel.
