EZBuyButton Buy Book Widget for Authors

Description

EZBuyButton Buy Book Widget for Authors plugin allows you to embed the EZBuyButton on Posts, Pages, and on the Sidebar. EZBuyButton is a “buy now” widget for books. Authors or publishers can create an EZBuyButton for each of their books, and place it on their WordPress site, to increase their book sales.

This buy book widget allows your website visitors to select which device they’d like to use to read your book, and then select their preferred retail store that they’d like to purchase your book from. Your visitor will then be directed to the correct country specific retail store according to their geolocation so that they can now buy your book.

This gives your visitors full control on how and where they’d like to purchase and read your book. This ultimately translates to more book sales, because you are laser targeting your potential book buyer’s preferences.

By first registering for a FREE account at our website, http://www.EZBuyButton.com, you will be able to customize the exact retail stores you want included, as well as the design, color, style, and functionality of your EZBuyButton. Once you’ve created your customized EZBuyButton at our website, you just have to copy & paste the Embed code into your WordPress site after you’ve activated this plugin.

The EZBuyButton widget supports the following retail stores:

  1. Amazon
  2. iTunes (iBooks)
  3. Barnes & Noble
  4. Kobo
  5. Smashwords
  6. Books-a-Million

  6. You can also enter the Book Cover Image URL (or leave this field blank).
