A Scribd collection is a bunch of documents that are grouped together. If you have organized some of your Scribd Store documents into a collection, you can sell them together as a bundle. Users will be able to pay once and obtain access to read and possibly download all the documents in your collection.
More information on collections
If you have more than a handful of works available on Scribd, we recommend organizing them into collections. You can organize works by genre, series, length, or another organizational scheme. You can also use collections to highlight your most popular works. Collections will be featured on your profile page. To learn more about creating and managing collections, see the following articles:
If you have a large number of works available on Scribd, there are many advantages to selling them both in collections and individually.
By offering works together in a convenient purchase, you'll encourage readers to purchase more than they would otherwise.
You can offer a discount to encourage users to buy a bundled set of content.
It makes purchasing multiple related works an easier, better experience for your customers, leading to happy readers!
What kinds of collections can I sell?
In order to sell a collection, it must meet several requirements.
All the documents in the collection must be uploaded by you.
There must be at least one document (preferably two) available in the collection.
It must be a public collection.
How do I sell a collection?
To sell a collection, go to the collection's page while signed into your account by browsing My Collections. Click on the "Settings" tab, then scroll to the bottom of the page to see the selling options. Check the box marked "Sell this collection" and save changes.
How do I price my collection?
When you mark a collection as sellable, you can then choose how you would like to price it. The price will default to being the sum of the prices of the individual documents in the collection. However, we recommend that you set your collection's price lower than this default. The discount percentage will be shown to potential purchasers and will act as an incentive for them to buy the collection together rather than separately.
How do users purchase the collection?
Once your collection is sellable, it will be advertised to users in three places.
On the collection page itself there will be a buy button.
On every buyable document in the collection, there will now be two buy buttons; one for the document alone and one for the collection.
When a user is purchasing an individual document in a buyable collection, they will see an upsell to purchase the collection instead.
