7. E-junkie

E-junkie is a really great site which let you sell your eBooks by taking $5 per month as subscription fee. But the good thing is that gives you 100% royalty per sale of your products. You need to submit your eBook in PDF format on E-junkie. The best thing I like on E-junkie is that it will stamp the buyer’s name, email and their unique Transaction ID on the top-left of each page of the PDF book they receive before they download it. It will protect from the non-intrusive way to discourage buyers from sharing their PDFs which is really so great.
