Christian Peters just alerted me to the fact that he can choose Spain as a market for his books on the iBookstore. Before today, you could only choose US, UK, France, Germany, Australia, and Canada.
Now, you can add twenty-six new markets for your iBooks: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Replublic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portgal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia,
, Sweden, Switzerland.
To do so, go to iTunes Connect and open the book whose markets you want to add. Then click the Add New Territory button in the upper left corner:
Then, choose the desired country from the Territory pull-down menu, and set the publication date, price, and so on.
I don't have access to all those stores to see if they've gone live yet, but it's definitely imminent. Get your books in those markets quick!
Note: Would it be so much to ask for me to be able to add all the Euro countries at once, with a single date and a single price?
Another note, since Blogger inexplicably refuses to let me add comments: How about a nice little table with checkboxes and entry fields and lots of places where I can choose "select all".
Yet another update: I'm getting "Not on store" errors for Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Switzerland (all non Euro countries). When I click on it I get this message: "No Contract.
You do not have a
contract in effect for this territory. Please work with your iBookstore
representative to enter into a new contract if you wish to sell your
books in the territory in question."
