Frequently asked Questions
How does crowdpublishing work?
To help get our books off the ground, we invite readers to buy ebooks and pre-purchase advance print copies. This enables us to raise funds for print production costs. Money from these pre-sales is held, pending completion of the campaign. Once we have raised sufficient funds, the print book is produced and distributed to eagerly waiting booklovers. If the goal is not reached and a campaign is unsuccessful, we refund the full amount of the print pre-purchase immediately. In the case of ebooks, these remain our readers' to enjoy. For more about how Magpie works, please see 'How We Work' in our website's main menu.
How do I read a Magpie ebook?
We've made it easy to get ebooks up and running on all devices, so our digital editions are accessible to anyone with a smartphone, tablet, computer or e-reader. We provide you with two ebook formats (.epub and .mobi) within a compressed .zip file. Double click the .zip file to open its contents, which include easy-to-follow instructions on which file to use for your device and how to read it. If you have any difficulties, you can contact us for support: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When will my purchased book arrive?
Our ebooks are emiled out to booklovers as soon as they are purchased. In the case of the print version, our schedule and funding goal are focussed on getting books to mums well in time for next Mother's Day. So, because it takes between four and six months to produce, print, ship and distribute a physical book, yours will arrive within up to six months of its pre-sale funding campaign closing (that is, by April 2019). We note that, as a publisher, we know the ins and outs of book production – so, unlike books purchased on crowdfunding platforms, where first-time booksellers can become unstuck when it comes to delivering their books, you can trust that our books will arrive when we say they will.
How do I give a book as a gift?
Ebooks: We send you an email containing links to digital versions of the book. This is a single-use link, so if you wish to gift it you can forward on to the person of your choice. Print books: If you wish the book to be sent directly to the lucky giftee, simply put their details in as the shipping address. Each order can specify one delivery address only, though, so if you are ordering for both yourself and for someone else, we recommend you request delivery to your own address and forward the gift copy on yourself. Alternatively, you can process separate transactions, with separate delivery addresses and shipping charges if you wish.
What happens if the funding target is not reached in time?
If we are close to our goal, and production schedules allow, we may be able to extend the time of our pre-sale funding campaign. But if the goal is not reached and a campaign is unsuccessful, you will be refunded the full amount of your print pre-purchase immediately. Your ebook remains yours to enjoy. If you have pre-purchased both a print and an ebook, then you will be refunded the print portion of your pre-purchase.
Where can I get my book shipped to?
As a New Zealand publisher, we are initially focusing on distributing in New Zealand and Australia. We have, however, also provided shipping options to North America and the United Kingdom – in time we will be developing fulfilment arrangements that mean books can be shipped to these countries at local rates, but for now shipping rates for these reflect international shipping charges.
How will I know whether the book I am supporting has successfully been funded?
We will email you when the crowdpublishing campaign for your book has finished and let you know if the funding target has been reached and the book is going into production. We will also let you know when to expect your book.
Can I cancel or change my pre-purchase before the goal is met?
No, once you have purchased an advance copy you are unable to cancel your order. We will refund an order if the campaign is unsuccessful, however, or if your book arrives in unsatisfactory condition.
How secure is it to buy on www.magpiepulp.com?
Payments are processed through shopify.com, which allows you to pay via Shopify Payments powered by Stripe, and via Pay Pal or G Pay, which have comprehensive buyer protection policies.
