Editor's Note: This article was originally published in October 2017 and reflects the announcement at that time. Learn more about Issuu Digital Sales.
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.
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.”

Rest assured that Issuu will remain the #1 place to easily access great free content that you can’t get anywhere else. By growing both free and paid content in one place, we’ll continue connecting readers to an even larger array of meaningful content that wasn’t easily accessible before.
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.
