Earn from Day One

Did you know that Usborne Books & More consultants earn 25% commission starting with their very first book sold online, with an opportunity to earn up to 37.5% commission on personal sales? The sky is the limit with the income you can earn too! More on that in a bit! 

No Inventory Requirement

While consultants have the option to take out inventory for events, there is no requirement for consultants to hold inventory. Consultants can run their business entirely online and exclusively from their e-commerce site if they choose to, with no need to order or handle books to distribute or ship them to customers.

Teambuilding is a Choice

Consultants are never required to "recruit" other consultants in order to earn commission on their own sales. While it's exciting and rewarding to recruit others to come alongside us and to enjoy all of the amazing benefits that our company offers, it is possible to earn commission on our own sales without relying on others. Team UBAM takes pride in helping families discover our high quality books and compensating consultants for their hard work and talents sharing our extensive product line and business opportunity.

No Requirements

UBAM is unique in the direct sales industry in that there are no monthly requirements, minimums, or sales quotas for consultants to meet. This business is truly flexible and completely no-risk! Consultants do not have to spend money in order to make money. When consultants promote to the leader level, there are minimum requirements in order to maintain leader status to ensure that leaders are supporting their teams.

The Sky is the Limit

There is absolutely no ceiling or cap to what you can accomplish or the income that you can earn with Usborne Books & More. It's also important to note that consultants will always make more income on their personal sales than their upline will make on their sales. With this in mind, a consultant has the ability to earn more than their leader! The beauty of this business is that it's about working on a team, supporting others, collaboration, and helping our teammates find their passions by utilizing their unique talents and honing their strengths.

High-Quality Products

Our goal with team UBAM is to get as many high-quality books and products into the hands of families, nationwide. Our books are affordable, unique, and second to none. Our host rewards program and our school and library programs are all extremely generous and help us to accomplish this goal! We love our mission and can stand behind its purpose. We are making a positive impact on our children's future and families through our important mission! 

Consultant Training & Support

UBAM home office offers company-wide training and resources in the consultant back office and through in-person and virtual events. Exclusive team training and resources are also offered in order to support consultants at all stages of their UBAM journey so consultants can scale their businesses to whatever level they choose.

Exclusive to Consultants

While a limited selection of Usborne and Kane Miller titles are available in book stores and gift shops, it is only through a consultant that the general public will have access to the full range of titles offered in our complete UBAM collection. UBAM is also strictly against sales of our titles on Amazon and is working to eliminate UBAM titles that are available to be purchased on Amazon.


Usborne Books & More operates under the parent company known as Educational Development Corporation. EDC is a publicly traded company under the ticker symbol EDCUS. Because of this, EDC is subject to all auditing, regulations, and you will find that financial data is available to the public.

Earn from Sales, Not "Recruiting"

Did you know that Usborne Books & More is a member of the Direct Selling Association? According to the DSA, "MLMs are legitimate businesses, and members are carefully screened by the organization to ensure that they are not pyramid schemes and don't use deceptive practices. The Federal Trade Commission agrees there are legitimate MLMs." According to investopedia.com, "The vast majority of pyramid schemes rely on profiting from recruitment fees, and seldom involve the sale of actual goods or services with intrinsic value." No one in our company earns a profit in any way from the purchase of a UBAM starter kit or signing up as a consultant.

Growing up I was first introduced to Usborne Books and More at a young age when my mom had purchased books for our family. Since then, I've fallen in love with the books and the company's mission to promote literacy throughout the country.​
