Small businesses and publishers also use Lulu Direct as part of their web store. Because Lulu Direct is free to use and connects to popular ecommerce platforms, adding books to your store is simple.
What Are The Benefits Of Lulu Direct?
When you use Lulu Direct to sell your book, customers buy from you directly. You control the price and know exactly how much you'll earn from every sale.
Also, you'll white label all the receipts; your customers only see you and your brand when they order your book.
Can Each Of My Customers Personalize Their Individual Order?
Yes, with Lulu Print API you can create personalized books or other printed content, accept orders through your site with those personalizations and send the orders to Lulu’s printers through the API connection.
At this time, our Shopify app and WooCommerce integration do not have this functionality. Each book that you sell using the Lulu Direct Shopify or WooCommerce connections will need to be connected to the Shopify app or WooCommerce with prepared files. Complete personalization using Shopify or WooCommerce would require a new file for each order based on the customer’s personalization.
