Frequently Asked Questions
Why Should I Use This Instead Of Kickstarter or Indegogo?

Will You Publish My Work?
That depends on what you want. We are open to it. You can either get SELF-PUBLISHED with Daastan OR you can raise money and get published with the publisher of your choice.
Are There Any Other Hidden Charges?
NO! If you get published with us, we WILL NOT charge you anything except the fixed fee mentioned to get it started i.e 1000 PKR. If you want to take out your raised amount then corresponding dollar conversion charges and transaction charges through bank will be applied.
Explain What is Self Publishing With Daastan?
Daastan, for the first time in Pakistan is introducing SELF-PUBLISHING for writers and poets who can not access global self-publishing platforms.
Our mission is to make publishing faster, cheaper and affordable for Pakistani writers and poets.
We work more or less like Amazon. For example, once you self-publish with us, we would be dispatching your book to anyone who orders it from any part of the globe.
For the time being, we will NOT be selling E-books to anyone but in near future we do plan to start this system through an app.
