Online Christian Bookstore
So, how do I make money with my online Christian Bookstore?
Your store will be created for you and comes fully stocked with thousands of Christian products from major distributors including Anchor, Appalachian, New Day, and Spring Arbor. Since your shopping cart and credit card processing system will be built directly into your store, you can start selling products from day one!
Each distributor assigns a standard wholesale buy price to their items. That is your baseline cost. On average, our distributors give our retailers the full industry standard discount, which is 42%. To that should be added the transaction fee and the credit card fee. The difference between the total cost and your selling price is your profit.
The consumer retail discount level (the price your customers pay) can be customized by each online store. You are free to select the discount you wish to sell at, from 0% to just under 25% of retail. The retail discount level can be set as a uniform rate for all products, or can be set by product category - for example you may sell everything at say a 10% discount, except Bibles at 20% and Jewelry at 25%. Our flexible pricing model allows you to choose how you sell products.
Below is an example as to how you would earn revenue...
|Line Item|| |
Sell at Full RRP Retail
Sell at 20% Discount
|Cost Of Product (example: 42% discount from RRP*)||$29.00||$29.00|
|Transaction Fee (5% to 4% - Depends on plan. Based on RRP*)||$ 2.50||$ 2.50|
|Credit Card Fee (Average of 3.5% + 35c per transaction)||$ 1.85||$ 1.55|
|Example Net Profits||$16.65||$ 6.95|
As a store owner, you can also create coupons and apply them to individual products, all products or product categories. Coupons come in three types, percentage off, dollar off coupons and fixed value coupons. For example, you can create a coupon to sell an item at a fixed price, an extra 5% off, or an extra $1.50 off the price. Our coupon system offers maximum flexibility. Track coupon usage to see which marketing techniques are effective. If you use coupons, remember, this is money that you are giving back to the customer - and its coming from your bottom line.
Offer your internet clients instant savings, and yet also raise revenues for your bookstore, local school, Girl Scout group, reading club, charity or similar!

- 95% of the products are between a 35% to 50% discount.
- 5% of the products fall outside of the 35% to 50% discount range, meaning greater than 50% or less than 35% (directly based on distributor pricing).
Why do you charge a transaction fee?
There is a significant operating cost to looking after your customers' order after their order has been placed. Should an order go missing or be incorrect the technology department provides the support needed to complete and fulfill the order. The transaction fee covers the costs incurred in providing these services and are extremely cost effective. It also covers the time spent with distributors should there be a problem with the order.
