If a startup acquisition in the publishing space has ever looked like a match made in digital heaven, the Ingram Content Group-Aer.io deal is it…the goal is to “make the power of the publishing supply chain, for both print and ebooks, available to anyone at the push of a button…In the same way that distribution is a service, and print-on-demand is a service, and digital fulfillment is a service, now there’s retail as a service.
Aer.io began as a developer of “native commerce” programs that gave publishers and other interested parties the ability to embed links with buy buttons in their tweets and Facebook posts.

Aer.io allows authors to sell direct to readers on their own site or through the social web. – Joel Friedlander, The Book Designer
