Features and Benefits
Multiple e-book formats
ITSI Admin, our publisher platform, supports PDF, reflowable EPUB2 and reflowable EPUB3 e-book formats.
Any content distributed to ITSI is automatically encrypted with 128-bit AES encryption upon uploading. Open files are not kept on the platform thereafter.
No charge to upload content
Upload as much content as needed to the ITSI platform as uploading content is free. The ITSI Distribution Fee only comes into effect when content is actually sold.
There are no membership or hosting fees required.

Through ITSI Admin, our publisher platform, publishers have direct access to their own content. There is no need to wait for ITSI to change metadata or manage titles on a publisher’s behalf, although we will gladly assist.

Online retail store available to clients, internationally
Content uploaded to ITSI Admin, our publisher platform, can also be made available for purchase on our online retail store, which is accessible to readers globally.
System training offered to publishers on the ITSI platform
Should publishers prefer more in- depth training on how to use our publisher platform, either tutorial videos can be consulted or in-person and telecom training can be arranged.

A word from our clients
“Wonderful customer service, Nadia. You set the standard! I also had some time to explore the ITSI platform and now even more impressed. I’ve been publishing eBooks since 2012 and by far ITSI’s is the best and easiest to use.”
I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for the service offered by Ms Shishavele to Study Toolbox. Her friendly, helpful support guided us through an intimidating process for first timers uploading ePubs! This level of service is a rare find nowadays. Thank you so much; I know that this is part of a team effort.
