Re: (Ingram Spark) Wholesale %

The minimum discount for IngramSpark is 30%. However, that won't help if you're wanting to make your book available to bookstores as they will need to inflate the sale price to cover their costs to order the books in. So you will need to set your discount to the standard 55%. Setup promo codes are t...

It's a good glitch to discover. They can do it again anytime. :)

[GIVEAWAYS] Amazon/Goodreads weirdness

In checking my KDP report for November I noticed a strange entry against one of my titles. Amazon had "sold" one free copy and was marked as a "Goodreads Giveaway copy". I also got paid for this "sale". So is Amazon selecting KDP titles for giveaway on Goodreads without the publisher's knowledge? Ha...

Re: [CS] New book ... bad cover

Sometimes it's just processed incorrectly at CS's end. Often resubmitting the same file fixes the problem.

Also, make sure to complain to CS about the faulty cover under the Satisfaction Guarantee, and they should replace the proof copy free of charge.

Re: [INGRAMSPARK] Free setup period extended

@danwiz -- not sure if this was before your time at CS, but they used to charge a $39 fee to enrol books in EDC. IngramSpark could go that route one day and abolish the setup and revision fees, but promo periods can be quite effective as a marketing tool, as is indefinite free setup/revisions for me...

[INGRAMSPARK] Free setup period extended

Good news for those who won't finish their books before the end of November to get free setup on IngramSpark -- they're now offering free uploads until 31 March 2018, using promo code NANO17. Heaps of time!

Re: [CS BARCODES] How to get the price add-on barcode

I'm sure when I was searching for the AU code, the sites I visited were more recent than 2004, but I doubt I could find them now. I guess I'll just leave the add-on code off these books.

Re: [CS BARCODES] How to get the price add-on barcode

Hey Steve, does (can) your barcode generator allow pricing codes for other countries besides the US? I created an AUD code somewhere and can't remember where. When I went to your site, I entered 3 for AUD and 1995 ($19.95) and it created a price for $319.95. Annoyingly IngramSpark's templates only d...

Re: [AMAZON ORDER] Has Amazon ever given you such poor service?

It's nothing to do with IS or CS -- Amazon put caps on customer orders, probably to stop people trying to game the system and reach bestseller status.

I'm not sure why the order has been split or why it's taking so long. You'll have to ask Amazon that question.
