View Publications on Computers
There are two ways to view digital publications on a computer:
- Web Viewer: Read free and paid digital versions of MagCloud publications directly from our website.
- PDF Download: Download a digital PDF copy of free and paid publications and read them at your leisure. To view a digital download on a computer all you need is a standard PDF reader to view the PDF you download, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader ®.
Digital publications are for personal viewing on the device of choice - PC, Mac or mobile. Each downloaded PDF is digitally marked to discourage unauthorized sharing. The PDF version can be printed on a home or office printer, but to respect the publisher's copyright, cannot be modified or copied.
Launch Online Publications From Your Site
Publishers can launch the web viewer version of their publication directly from their website or blog. From the Promote page, simply select what you want your embeddable badge to look like, then copy the code provided into the site where you wish to embed the badge.
When readers click on the badge the web viewer will launch. If the publication is free users can view all the pages in your publication. If you've set a price on your publication then users can preview the first three pages and back cover and will be prompted to log in to access or purchase the digital version.
Measure Success with the MagCloud Web Viewer Stats
Publishers can monitor how well their readers engage with their online publications via the Stats section in their account. Publishers can see important web viewer reading stats including the number of total readers, publications read, pageviews, shares, hyperlinks clicked, click through rates etc. for all their collections or a single publication.
Calculate Digital Pricing
You can choose to make your digital publications available for free, for free with print purchase, or for a price ($0.99 or above).
When you set a price for your digital publication, you will earn 70% of that price on all sales through MagCloud.com, and 50% for all sales through the iPad app.
