Publishers buy advertising space or time from retailers, then use that space or time to promote these books through other outlets such as bookstores or other retail stores.

Co-op advertising provides publishers with increased book exposure and sales growth; retailers may utilize co-op ads to draw customers into their stores.

Both retailer and publisher should agree upon its terms in advance, with the publisher making sure the retailer is promoting their books while finally keeping an eye on sales generated from co-op ads to ascertain whether they are effective.
