Are my books returnable?
Publishers grant booksellers the right to return unwanted or overstocked copies of books. IngramSpark allows you to designate whether or not your titles can be returned. Many booksellers will not stock books that are not returnable; however, the cost of the returned books is deducted from the proceeds of your titles.
How much does IngramSpark cost?
IngramSpark offers competitive pricing specifically designed to give small publishers looking for print and distribution services the best possible value and return.

What formats do my books need to be in?
For print books, you need a PDF of the cover and a separate PDF of the interior content. Learn more about print books here. Ebooks require an EPUB file of the interior content and a JPEG of the cover.
Do I need different ISBNs for my ebook and print book?
Yes, you need a different ISBN for each format of your book. If you have a hardcover version, a paperback version, and an ebook version of the same title, you’ll need three different ISBNs to represent them in their various formats.
