One important aspect for your company is the variety of sources of revenue. Don't want to be too reliant on a single resource for your cash, because if it runs dry, you will immediately feel the pain and your company can be doomed. Amazon/Hachette was the trigger for my own move into selling directly on the book market, although I have been selling quotes on-line for several years.

In person, I now use Selz for my e-bookand (coming soon) non-fiction sells directly from my website. I wanted to be able to use Paypal or debit cards as a client, so I wanted both of them.

It' also integrated into the myAweber e-mail mailing system so that I can create a customer buyers' mailing, separately from the persons who are downloading my free material.
