Thinking about Selling with Us?

Welcome to Curriculum Crossroads!  Do you love to create great educational materials?  What a coincidence!  We love to sell great educational materials.  We’re so thrilled that you’re thinking about selling with us!

What is a Digital Title?

A digital title is any title that can be opened by a computer or mobile device.  They can be in any number of formats, including PDF, ePub, Mobi, mp3, and jpg.

Selling on Curriculum Crossroads

On this site, you can sell original educational resources from your very own store.  It’s easy!  We promise!  Just set up your store, tell us about your titles, upload the files, and then set your prices.  We take care of things from there and pay you royalties for each and every sale.

At Curriculum Crossroads, we view our relationship with publishers as a partnership.  Publishers provide quality educational resources for students while Curriculum Crossroads provides the selling platform and marketing for those products.  We do expect publishers to recognize their own role in the success of their business and do their part to help make it a success.

Publisher Account Options

We offer four different types of publisher accounts.  You’re free to choose the type of account that works for you.  Please read below for descriptions of each type of account:

Exclusive without Targeted Marketing

This type of account awards you 85% of each sale on this site with no transaction fees.  The “exclusive” part means that you are entitled to sell your titles on Curriculum Crossroads along with your own site (not another distributor), as long as the prices on Curriculum Crossroads are the same or less than the prices on your own site. Even though this account does not receive targeted marketing, there are tools for publishers to market their own titles and publishers are encouraged to have outside avenues for marketing (websites, blogs, pages on social media platforms, etc.).  Titles under this type of account may receive limited marketing from the random rotation of titles through the marketing queue.  This account is great for:

  • established publishers
  • publishers who have established marketing avenues
  • publishers with a wide variety of products
