This month’s insecurity – Why do I get more sales through Teachers Pay Teachers and Scribd than Google Play.
That doesn’t make sense, does it? TpT and Scribd are tiny compared to Google Play. Yes, I do promote TpT in my Ask a Tech Teacher sidebar, but Google Play doesn’t offer a store widget. I’d have to separately link each book (anyone know differently?). I’ve spent more time setting up Google Play than either TpT or Scribd (it’s more complicated to me), but got much less in return.
Anyone have a similar experience? Or a different one? Does anyone sell on Google Play?
