Company Summary

Bitingduck Press is book publisher and the owner of a patent-pending system (WebBytez) for crediting a physical retailer for the sale of a digital product (e-book). WebBytez works by providing a store with optically readable codes that a consumer scans using a smartphone. The smartcode uniquely identifies the Internet merchant (the publisher), the physical store, and the product. This allows any downloadable product to be sold at any venue.
