Frequently asked questions
How do I publish a digital book on Publior?
File types that can be converted to digital books:
Sales via PAC:
We give you alphanumeric book activation codes that are good for up to 12-month of access to the Publior App (Publior Activation Codes). You can then distribute them through your sale channels according to your needs.
Where does the buyer-reader enter the PAC codes to activate your books?
After the student or teacher purchases a code they will need to download the Publior App on their device and create a free account. They then enter the PAC code in a special cart field on the shelf titled BOOKSTORE. Instantly the book will appear on the first shelf titled MY BOOKS.
How long can the reader have access to the book?
From 15 days to 12 months depending on your publishing plan.
Timespan between the issuance of PAC codes to the publisher and their activation by the reader:
The time starts from the moment the activation codes (PAC codes) are issued by Publior and delivered to the publisher. In general, a waiting period of up to three years applies, provided that the annual cooperation contract is renewed. For longer periods, a special analysis and agreement are required.
Minimum number of PAC codes produced per book:
Cost of a 12-month PAC code for the publishing house:
From 1 to 3 Euros.

For example, if the second programme is chosen by the publisher, each code for the book would cost EUR 2. The publisher will advance Publior EUR 3000, which covers up to 1500 activations within the timespan of a year. If a total of 2100 codes are activated during the same year, the publisher will pay an additional EUR 1200, i.e. EUR 2 x 600 codes (2100 minus 1500). Unactivated codes paid under guaranteed sales will not be carried over to the following year. Settlement is made at the end of the year based on activations. This means that the publishing house may issue a greater number of codes than the guaranteed sales. It will only be charged if they are activated in the agreed period. Activations are tracked live via Publior Author, where special data export software is provided for interfacing with commercial programmes.
Special discounts apply for a total of 10 books or more.

Does Publior include a free authoring tool for the creation of books?
Yes, you get 5 seats in Pubior Author. More places are available upon request.
Is there a possibility of revised publication after the first year?
Yes, provided that the material continues to be hosted by a third-party server after the free authoring period has ended. The cost of hosting material is not compulsory. It is calculated based on the size of the files. The cost starts from 600 euros per year for hosting 10 books. (5 GB)
Is there a possibility of integrating several titles in one digital code (activation of two or more books per code)?
Yes, when there is e.g. a separate student book and exercise book, then both books are activated simultaneously with the same code. There are publications where a single code activates simultaneous access to a total of five different books: student book, teacher book, teacher guide, lab guide, and teaching cards. Additional books (up to three) activated as a single book title are not charged separately.
Is it possible to create an activation code that activates a digital library containing dozens or hundreds of books?
Yes, a unique code can provide total access to an online library (PLAC - Publior Library Activation Code). The cost of library codes (PLAC) depends on the number and size of the books, as well as on whether the individual books are simultaneously released as stand-alone publications. The cost of PLACs starts at EUR 3 for up to 50 books, and the minimum guaranteed sales quantity is 2000 codes.
Can i publish books for offline use?
Yes, once you have completed authoring and adding interactive elements to your book, we check the contents at your request and create, for an additional one-time fee, a desktop version that you can distribute either via CD or download link with or without an activation code. Offline versions have no LMS and can be installed freely, or on a predefined number of PCs. For example, 1000 codes may be issued for an offline book, where each code allows installation on not just one but five PCs. To activate the offline code, an internet connection will be required -just once- during the activation procedure. Special MSI versions of your offline books are available for automatic installation on school networks.
