Can I advertise and sell my Products: Music, Clothes, Designs, Art, Etc.. on your platform? How much is the cost to do so?
Yes you can add your Product(s) to our shop library. This includes any Product where applicable to your needs. The below mentioned are interchangeable and applies to any Product not limited to only Books. Certain PRODUCTS may require a higher initial fee and additional taxes and fees. Here are the FAQs and requirements as it relates to e-products/media.
Based upon feedback and questions posed to us, we have decided to rewrite these instructions to make it easier to understand.
We have 3 options to choose from when adding your Product to our catalog:
Product Redirect Link Option (PRLO):-
You submit the basic details of your Product, (picture, short description, price, features, external link to your Product, etc...) we add your Product to our catalog shelf and the link that takes the visitor directly to your Product via your page whether it be on Amazon or your personal page.
My Product Payment Gateway Option (MPGO):-
This option is like the "PRLO" where you submit your Product information and the link where you would like to have your customers pay for your Product directly from our store page. Instead of rerouting them to your personal page as referenced above, they can check out via your private payment gateway whether it be $Cashapp, $Paypal, etc... This benefit is for those who do not have a personal webpage store but rather the customer pay them directly using your own payment links on our platform.
KVI Product Payment Gateway Option (KPGO):-
This option is where you will use the full benefits of our available payment gateway to have your buyers purchase your Product(s) directly through us. By choosing this option, it comes with many perks and features, unlike the above options that do not (since you will be handling your business through another 3rd party medium). Contact us to inquire about the benefits if interested in this option. Payouts will be sent to your bank or cash account twice a month or on the 1st and the 15th of every month.
Our original post listed that the cost for "MPGO" was $10.00 and the cost for "KPGO" was $5.00, which we stated was in the form of a deposit. This initial fee is more like a setup fee for using our platform. Of course we need to maintain our website and pay for extra upgrades. We said "deposit" because we know that people tend to change their minds often. Usually when we set these things up it takes time and work to do so and then to have someone cancel... Well you get the idea. So here is the break down on cost.
The cost to use "Your Own Payment Gateway" to receive payment is $10.00 initial payment (deposit), This $10.00 setup fee includes the price of your unique GTIN/UPC Product bar-code number which we will assign to your Product. If you choose to cancel after your initial setup fee, you will have 7 business days to cancel or before your Product page goes live. We will notify you before making your page live. We must receive your request to cancel by email on the 7th day after your initial setup fee at (See contact links above). You will be refunded your initial fee minus the cost of the Product bar-code number which once assigned to your Product title cannot be used on any other Product. You keep this bar-code forever and can use it on any other platform you choose related to your Product. The bar-codes are non-refundable.
The cost to use "KVI NETWORK CREATIONS" payment gateway to receive payment is $5.00 initial payment, and $1.00 (tax and fees we will deduct) per every sale made for your Product on our platform. This $5.00 initial fee (deposit) does not include the price of your unique GTIN/UPC (Product bar-code number). If you choose to cancel after your initial payment, you will have 3 business days to cancel or before your Product page goes live. We must receive your request by email on the 3rd day after your initial payment at (See contact links above). You will be refunded your full initial payment of $5.00 if you qualify. The GTIN/UPC Bar-code price is optional and separate from this package.
If you should provide us your own qualified GTIN/UPC/ISBN number we will need proof of purchase (where applicable) and or written statement that the Bar-code actually belongs to you and not another Product or person. Our issued Product bar-code numbers can be scanned and used anywhere in the world and links to our store and your Product or Product link. Having your own GTIN/UPC/ISBN number does not waive any portion of fees required above.
Prices and fees are separate for each Product you choose to add. The same terms regarding refunds and cancellations; regarding Product Bar-code assignment applies to each individual submission.
You can register for an account with us based on the option you choose above. If you did not choose the "Premium Package" option above, registration is optional. If you did choose the "KPGO" option then you are required to register by following the following link(s).
After signing up for an account, we will be notified; we will then use your credentials to set you up with a "Sales Account" (SA) to access your Product and other features. We will create you an account and send you the request to the email you used to register so that you can personalize your log-in access and password. We advise you to take advantage of the two-way authentication and additional security options to protect your account.
Please allow us time to review your application request and respond. Signing up for an account does not guarantee approval or access, as we have the right to screen, accept, or deny access to any user. If you are not approved, we will gladly refund your money.
By adding your Product to our library comes with numerous mutual benefits and discounts too numerous to list relevant all your needs, advertisements and promotions. Contact us for more details. Please be advised that we are adding features and upgrades constantly. If you opted for the "Premium Package" and do not cancel within 3 days, we will create and design a spotlight showcase for you and your Product to advertise anywhere you like. You will also receive 25% off any of our publishing services we offer via our website. By referring others to us and generating new qualified leads and signups, you will also receive free gifts and perks (contact us for details).
There is no catch. We are a new domain built from the ground up, that was established in 2021, and we are only looking to expand by offering mutual benefits and services through networking with other creators and entrepreneurs like you.
Unlike other Product platforms we add your Product and details to our library free of charge (we do all the work). You get 100% full royalties for your Product and we only charge you for taxes and fees if you use our store payment gateway. We are required to pay taxes at the end of the year and we need support to help us continue to provide you with services and deals; and to help maintain the website. Feel free to help us by contribution through:
Prices and fees are subject to change at anytime. If you are a current subscriber to our "Premium Package," your subscription does not change. All new submissions thereafter - all changes will be in effect.
We accept all forms of Credit Card (CC) payments, including ACH (US and Intl. Sales), Check, Money Orders, and the popular gateway services provided through $Cashapp, $Paypal, and Stripe.com (US and Intl. Sales)
The following describes how to submit your book, but you can follow the same format and parameters to submit other PRODUCTS as well.
We require a current error free copy of your PDF e-Product or electronic version of your Product to which we will connect to our store by download link, so when customers purchase your Product, they can download the Product immediately after purchase automatically. We can provide the link to your e-Product or if you have a link to your e-Product via Google Drive, Drop-box etc... we can use that link as well. By submitting your Product to us you are acknowledging without fraud and deception, under penalty of perjury that you are the official author of the Product and you hold all copyrights and ownership for the works within or have permission to use said contents.

When you submit your works to us, we not only share it on our platform, but we also give you a free honest review and rating of it. When I say honest, we meant "honest". I admit, I will never consider myself the best of what I do when it comes to my craft, but I do know this, that I love what I do, and my work comes from the heart, it's my passion.
Each and every day, I strive to become better, increase knowledge, and invent new ideas and original styles. One thing I love about when people review my work is the "candor" to which they review them, even if it hurts. In contrast, one thing I do not like when people review my work is when they lack the understanding, discernment, objectivity, and open-mindedness to comprehend the diversity...style of unique art and creativity.
In other words, would you take advice or criticism from someone about how you drive a car on the highway, when that critic has never owned a car in their life, never had a licence, and never driven themselves, on the highway? Would you hire a defense lawyer to represent you on appeal when their entire career was working as a prosecutor? I think not, you would have concerns right?
Most reviewers or critics (I say based on experience) are so used to a certain style, genre, or work of a previous author or creator that their bias blinds them to the fact that there are actual talents out there that are new, unique, and revolutionary. I read many author biographies that seem to have the same thing in common: "They were influenced by previous famous authors". I think most even try to emulate or adopt the style of their mentor. That's not a bad thing. The question is, who are you and what is your raw style of creativity if you had no one to emulate?
Personally, I would rather pave my own style of writing; make my own trail that when people read my work they will say, "Hey, this is different". I'm not sure if I'm there yet, although I've had some consistent reviews about the uniqueness of my work, but this is what I strive for. After all, I was always considered a trailblazer. To go against the grain of what everyone is used to...the norm.
There are many reviews out there that are excellent reviews but how many of those reviews came from friends and family, or were paid reviews? Yes it's true, for the right amount of money you can pay anyone these days to give you 5-star reviews to boost your product or sales, but is this actually helping you when it's not an honest review? Reviews from family and friends are often bias reviews because they may feel compelled to leave you a great review because they know you personally.
Many viewers, readers, or shoppers also tend not to read your work or purchase your product because it lacks a review or a number of reviews; moreover you lack a number of followers on their standard rating scale. They look at this as a lack of credibility. That may be true in a sense, but sometimes, most of the greatest of works, the would-be-famous of people, were those who were past up because of this very notion and stigma, and it only took one or two people to give that author or product a chance ultimately opening the floodgates to their fame. Ever seen the show "Shark Tank"?
So, if you are a unique writer who consider yourself different, or whom people consider your style or writing weird and odd, then you are at the right place. Odd and Weird does not make you an outcast, it only makes you independently bold and different. Is different such a bad thing? It depends on your personal perspective. This is the discernment, the empathy, the ability and vision to look outside the box...that we can provide to you when we review your works.
We always encourage written reviews and ratings on the services we provide to learn how to improve. You may give us your review below. Thanks in advance.
In addition to leaving us a review we are always looking for fresh ideas. If there is anything we can do better or if you have a public questions feel free to post in the comment forum section below marked, "Leave A Comment".
If you would love to post your work on your own, the requirements are still needed, but you may do so by visiting and signing up for membership at our community space. You can access the link in the top menu section of this page by clicking on the "Spaces" link.
You do not need to be an expert writer to submit, but you do have to be 18 years of age or older, or have the permission of a legal guardian or parent to submit your literature to us if you are under the age of 18.
Since this is our first initiative, although we require edited and readable submissions, we are offering a light edit of your work before posting them to our blog, free of charge (up to 50 words), if one is needed.
If however you require a more deep-dive edit, we have several editors on hand that can work with you to get your literature professionally up to standard (with unlimited revisions). We will work with you on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is simply to showcase different styles of literature, genre, and culture to our many viewers.
