Sample Chapters for Books

6 0 2

We are primarily a bookstore, and would like to offer sample chapters of some of our titles. We have both print and digital books. Digital books are managed with the SendOwl app.


Is there a way to offer customers a preview or sample chapter of a book before they purchase it?

Maybe linking to a PDF of the sample chapters? Shopify can host those files, and then you can add a link to them in the product description or on a button somewhere on the product page.


To upload a file (instructions from Shopify docs):

Not a bad idea, except we are using an ERP integration to handle all of our product info, including descriptions. All product data is synced from our ERP to the website with some integration software. So unless the link for the PDF file is sitting in the ERP it won't work... and unfortunately we cannot have URLs in our ERP.


Any other suggestions?

Wow, it sounds great! I like such initiatives. I also try to do something like that; I provide business law task help for the Essayontime users and all money I send to the animal's shelter. I think that is a good platform to start to make good things. I have a degree in law and work for the international company so that I can provide high quality content. I think that it's great when you can make someone's life better.
