Warehousing & Consignment
At Porchlight, we have something that most authors and many smaller, niche publishers don’t: warehouse space. In addition to that, we have a robust retail platform, customer service team, and logistics operation ready to be put to use alongside that, all of which can be leveraged by self-published authors or others that may need such readily available solutions.
We have seen a dramatic rise in self-publishing and alternative publishing platforms in the past decade. What we have not seen is a rise in logistics to move those books in anything other than a piecemeal way. That may be fine for many, if not most, authors, but if you’re on the speaking circuit or have a larger platform that moves books in bulk, you need a better backend, and we offer one that is already built and ready to use. We can even, in many cases, set it up to work on a consignment or buy-back basis.
Porchlight has been offering these services for three decades. It was, in large part, how we got into selling books in bulk in the first place. So put your mind at ease by putting our years of experience and operations to work for you.
