Providing the best way to buy & sell Usborne books
What does an Independent Usborne Partner do?

The benefits of becoming a Partner
Usborne is committed to providing Partners with everything they need to "write a better story for their family” - be that a supplementary income, a full-time wage or simply a business they can build up & be proud to call their own.
Usborne Community Partnerships is a safe space in which you can grow, both personally and financially. On joining, you will gain access to everything you need to get started and run a successful home-based business. You earn commission on every book you sell, plus there are additional bonuses and rewards as you move your new business forward.
What you get when you join Usborne as an Independent Usborne Partner
- A Starter Kit of new books and business stationery worth at least £150
- Your own website to sell directly to customers, build your brand & grow your audience online
- An online business portal to manage your business and place orders on behalf of your customers
- Access to a wealth of training resources, videos and support materials
- Inclusion into all our company incentives (from free books and free attendance to training events through to luxury holidays) to inspire and motivate you
- Marketing and admin support from our amazing head office team
Most importantly though, your Mentor will welcome you into the Usborne community where you will be able to share your journey and work with/learn from like-minded Partners.
Become an Independent Usborne Partner
Running your own business requires hard work, enthusiasm, tenacity and a willingness to try new things, but it will never be more complicated than putting the right book in the right reader’s hands.
Every Partner’s adventure starts with a box of books and an empty diary. What happens next is up to you – it's your story. You get to make it as fun, rewarding and enjoyable as you want.
