You can sell your publications on Issuu with our Premium and Optimum plan. But given the unprecedented situation we're all facing as a result of COVID-19 where the importance of digital content is growing, we will make Digital Sales, which is normally a Premium feature, available to all Issuu users for free starting Wednesday, March 25th, and remain free through end of July, 2020. In addition, we will waive our revenue share requirement, giving 100% of revenues from digital sales to our customers, leaving only credit card transaction fees.
