Apple Reveals New Service for Authors to Sell Directly in iBooks

http://www.maclife.com/article/news/...tly_ibookstore

Quote:
Apple sent us an e-mail today with details on how someone could sign up to sell their own books in the iBookstore. Their books would have to adhere to these criteria: each one would need to have a 13-digit ISBN, be in ePub format, validate against epubcheck 1.0.5, and contain no unmanifested files. If you are not familiar with any of these Apple suggests working with their aggregation partners.
In addition to these requirements you will need to have a US Tax ID, a valid iTunes Store account with a credit card on file, and an Intel-based Mac running OS X 10.5 or later.
Looks like you need an Apple Connect account to get info.

If you publish through Smashwords they do all that for you, plus you don't need the tax number. Check out "How to publish on Smashwords." http://www.smashwords.com/about/how_..._on_smashwords

But if you're outside the US, and don't have a US tax ID (TIN or EIN), Smashwords has to keep back a 30% withholding tax from your payments.
