Edelweiss is a unique digital catalogue platform that publishers use to efficiently manage their catalogues and review copies as well as their sales and marketing processes.
About Edelweiss in the UK
An American company, Edelweiss by Above the Treeline is used widely in the U.S. and Britain, working with many bookshops, wholesalers, and publishers.
Edelweiss is free for end-users such as booksellers, librarians, reviewers, and other book professionals. They use it to discover titles that are being introduced to the trade, access proofs, and collaborate with publisher sales teams. There is a fee for publishers to post their titles and use the system for catalogues, sales presentations, ePOS analytics, and as a proof platform.
Publishers in the UK and Ireland receive discounted pricing
Already a client of a US distributor on Edelweiss?
Maximize your sales and marketing by creating your own Independent Publisher Listing (IPL). An IPL allows you to have a publisher page in Edelweiss for your titles only, with your branding, which will be active in both the UK and US markets. This means that you can create your own catalogues and users can search for your publishing house in Edelweiss. Your distribution partner still manages the US data feeds for you and maintains your titles in their catalogues, but you can:
Direct traffic to your Independent Publisher Listing in your marketing efforts
Create unique catalogues with collections of titles
Add sales and ordering information for potential buyers
Manage digital proofs and promotions without the intervention of your distribution partner (additional fees may apply)
Take advantage of lower UK-only pricing for IPLs
Create both UK and US-facing catalogues
Give your own sales teams access to Edelweiss tools
Supply a UK data feed to supplement your US partner's feeds
Include titles for the UK market that are not distributed in the US
Edelweiss is the book industry's largest platform to market, sell, discover, and order new titles. It's used by over 250 publishers and distributors, representing well over 8,000 publishers and imprints.
