Authors Direct lets you sell audiobooks directly to your listeners without any of the hassle associated with running your own e-commerce store. Audiobook purchases are instantly delivered to the Authors Direct mobile app for listening.
To participate in Authors Direct, you must have your audiobooks submitted through Findaway Voices.
Findaway Voices gives you access to the world's largest network of audiobook sellers and everything you need to create professional audiobooks.
Don’t worry, when you sign up, you can choose to distribute your audiobook only to Authors Direct or take advantage of our wide distribution network. The choice is always yours.
Getting started is easy! At minimum, you must be signed up as an Author and distribute your audiobook(s) with Findaway Voices.
Once you’re an author subscribed to Voices, you can sign up for Authors Direct from the Marketing tab of the Findaway Voices dashboard, or simply click here.
There’s a one time author setup fee of $99 and then only $19.99/month. You’ll gain access to awesome new improvements and features, including the ability to sell audiobooks in the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as the new Authors Direct dashboard. Authors Direct provides everything you need to sell directly to your customers.
This monthly fee allows us to handle all customer service, credit card fees, tax requirements, and much more on behalf of all authors so your main focus can continue to be writing great books.
Authors Direct allows you to customize your merchant page to make sure your audience sees the look of your own brand.
Customize items like the header banner, small logo, and even your author bio/introduction. You can also provide a URL link to your website, email list sign up, etc.
First, check and see if there's any answer to the issue at the Authors Direct Help Center.

Please note that Authors Direct does not support customer refunds at this time.
As long as the title has been distributed through Findaway Voices for at least 7 days, additions to your storefront are immediate.
