Actually, I'm wondering if the deal would be broader than that. When Kobo partnered with W.H. Smith in the U.K. recently, I read that a commission of *all* sales at the Kobo site from British customers will go to W.H. Smith. Even if a customer goes straight to the Kobo store, bypassing W.H. Smith altogether. (Since the Kobo store is completely separate, I imagine this agreement was made to allay fears that sales commissions will soon be worthless since W.H. Smith customers would probably start going to the Kobo store directly.)

I would think the same type of deal would be made here - a percentage of all sales made in Canada will go to Indigo. They brokered that deal with another country, and I can't imagine them wanting anything less for themselves.
