Readers in Finland have a new store to buy eBooks from. Book service provider Kirjavälitys and publishing technology firm MPS Limited have partnered to launch an online eContent platform in Finland. The project went live this past November, but will fully up and running by the end of January.
The site sells and distributes eBooks from Finnish publishers to Finnish customers, as well as to international buyers. The eBooks in the new store will be available in PDF and ePUB form, and the site will include both a Finnish version and an English version.
MPS gives all participating publishers a tool that converts files to ePub and enables DRM. Their platform also hosts the content, distribution and e-commerce services.
