Docstoc Launches DocStore, Online Marketplace to Buy and Sell Premium Professional Documents

by Jason on August 12, 2009

Today, we are proud to announce Docstoc’s inaugural foray into the world of online content sales with the creation of Docstore.

Docstore is leveraging itself as the iTunes of documents, allowing users to purchase forms from such established publishers as Legal Zoom, Real Deal Docs, 4Expertise, Ready Built Forms and many, many more all in one place. Rather than eliminating free documents, DocStore will compliment the 5 million free documents already available on the site and allow users to purchase premium documents while still browsing free content as easily as ever.

With Docstoc growing faster than ever, this was the perfect time to join with premium content providers to sell top-notch business, technology, legal, and educational content on Docstoc.

With the release of DocStore, we are also debuting our brand-new proprietary viewer. In addition to providing more options and being supremely user-friendly, it enables consumers to preview documents while protecting the publisher’s content. The new viewer restricts user access to a full document prior to purchase, allowing consumers to see only a portion of the for-sale document.

Docstoc provides a number of tools for its DocStore partners/publishers including an advanced copyright filter that prevents their documents from being re-uploaded to Docstoc after purchase. In addition, publishers have access to custom, real-time statistics and reporting to easily monitor the demand and sales of their content.

DocStore is initially launching with 12 partners, but we are welcoming new publishers, large and small. Any party interested in selling their content through Docstoc can visit http://www.docstoc.com/partners/ or email bizdev@docstoc.com for more information.
