Partner Program FAQ

What is the standard commission on a referral?

Our key products, IndieReader Professional Reviews and IndieReader Discovery Awards (IRDAs), have a standard 30% commission.

For example, our Standard Pro Book Review is $299 for a 7-9 week turnaround.  Your commission would be $89.70. Our RUSH Review is $399 for a 4-6 week turnaround.  Your commission on those would be $119.70. 

The cost of the IRDAs is $150 per book per category, making your commission $45.

How can I best promote IndieReader to my users and network?

IndieReader is one of the original author services and review companies. We genuinely care about giving authors a way to get reviews for the books they’ve worked so hard on, and to promote their work. We offer products that are the same quality as our major competitors (ie Kirkus Indie, BlueInk) at about half the price. We are simply the best value in paid indie book reviews.
