Re: [Ingram] POD Sales Report

Thank you Michelle! That "your theory" kind of irritated me.

Re: [Ingram] POD Sales Report

It's not a theory! I've been with IS for a few years and placed orders for my books many times. I have an order in the mail at this time. I am 100% certain that books I buy myself, through my dashboard, do NOT show as "sales".

Re: [Ingram] POD Sales Report

What you're asking is quite unclear to me. You seem to be asking if/when/where the sale of your book to yourself, ordered directly from your dashboard, will appear on a sales report. If that's what you're asking - it will NOT show. If a book is showing on your IS dashboard under the "POD Sales Repor...

Re: [Ingram] POD Sales Report

Neither IngramSpark nor CreateSpace shows your purchases that you made by clicking on the "Order" button on their websites. If, however, you ordered your own book from Amazon or another place, then the sale to yourself will show. You requested a sales report from who? IS or CS? IS generally takes a ...

Re: [Ingram Spark] Switching

The email stipulates "Free title setup on print or ebooks until July 31, 2018! Use Promo Code SPARKS ." which means revisions are not included in this freebie. Bummer, I've got one title which I want to correct about 5 incorrect spellings of scientific names of plants. They are only incorrect in the...

Re: [CS] Spine

For CS there is no number. Even the minimum page requirement of 24 will result in a glued (perfect bound) book. If you want a saddle-stitch (stapled) spine you have to go to IS. I am not sure what the maximum number of pages that they can staple is, but they do it for my 24 - 26-page calendars.

Re: [INGRAM SPARK] Espresso sales

I received a similar report from IS showing that 2 of my books were printed by the Espresso machine in China. I fear that in China it was so that somebody can steal it and start selling it for a steeply discounted price, and possibly with their own name on it! I just did a search on EBM locations an...

Re: [IS Question] lightning source?

LS is for bigtime publishers only. We indies use IS (IngramSpark), a part of LS. Yes, IS works similar to CS, but IS has a $49 setup fee, which means you want to make dang sure that everything is correct before you ever even think about uploading. If you want to do a revision that's $25. So, a lot o...
