Sell Digital Magazines

Issuu is fueled by millions of creators publishing thoughtful, original and independent content. Starting today, these creators can sell digital magazines and their fans can buy them, all on the Issuu platform.


We believe that all publishers should be able to thrive and build a livelihood, creating the work they’re passionate about. We believe that fans want to support and engage with the creators they love. And we are launching Digital Sales to do just that.

We announced that Digital Sales was coming at Generators Summit two weeks ago, with great press coverage including Business Insider and Inc, and we’re excited to now open this up to all eligible publishers on Premium and Optimum plans.

The Best Solution for Hard-Working Creators

Publishers deserve more than a system that just emails a PDF to readers. We’ve made sure to build the core features publishers truly need:

  • Fast, direct payments through Stripe

  • Works beautifully on any device

  • Easy 10-minute setup

  • Offer single issues or subscriptions

  • Sell from social media or your website

  • Control and optimize cover prices for your business

  • Only verified purchasers can read full issues

One of our early customers, Paul Vitale of Sweet Paul, put it best, “We’re thrilled to leave our old digital subscription solution behind – the user flow is amazing on Issuu, both for our setup, and for our readers’ purchase experience.”

Stay Tuned for More

This is a big step forward in ensuring magazine creators can build their livelihoods online. We’ve got even more planned to help publishers market and sell their magazines, so stay tuned.
