We’re delighted to announce Apple News+ has become an ABC Certified Supplier, following our successful audit of their ‘All you can read sales’ data for Consumer Magazines.
Achieving Certified Supplier status means Apple News+ has completed our robust audit, confirming their systems are capable of providing data that’s compliant with ABC reporting standards.
Certification also enables Apple News+ to share other reporting benefits with its publisher customers. As we can now place much greater reliance on its systems, it's far simpler and more cost-effective for publishers to report ABC copies delivered via this platform.
Jan Pitt, Commercial Director at ABC, comments, “We’re delighted to welcome Apple News+ as a Certified Supplier. Over the course of the COVID-19 restrictions many publishers have reached out to partners to distribute their digital content, looking for those they can trust and who make it as easy as possible to report with ABC. I’ve no doubt the enhanced transparency that comes from ABC certification will bring added benefit to publishers using the Apple News+ platform.”
Our ‘All you can read sales’ reporting category refers to digital editions that a consumer has purchased and viewed as part of a multi-publication package. As a result of the COVID-19 restrictions, we’ve suspended the requirement that there must be a print version of the title. This means that, until further notice, publishers can claim an issue that has 100% digital circulation. To find out more about our COVID-19 reporting changes, please see our Coronavirus information page.
