Distribute via Ingram

To thousands of bookstores worldwide

Sell your book via the Ingram network, the world's largest book distribution network with over 39,000 book wholesalers, retailers and libraries. All books sold via Ingram are printed by Lightning Source, one of the world's leading print-on-demand (POD) printers. Low cost POD digital printing and the widest global distribution make this a great choice for many first time authors.

How it works

The commercials

POD icon

Print-on-demand

Ingram distribution is only available for print-on-demand books. There is therefore no print run, inventory or warehousing costs.

Royalty icon

Royalties

Net Revenue = Wholesale Book Price – Production Costs

So for each book sold, you receive the wholesale price, less any production and publishing costs. Shipping fees are paid by the person buying your book. Royalty revenue is paid on the same day each month. For more detail on royalties please see the Royalties section of our terms.

Retailers

Books are made available in the US, Canada, UK, Continental Europe, Australia & New Zealand via over 39,000 wholesalers, retailers, libraries and stores. These include: Amazon, Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble, Bertram Books, Blackwell, Book Depository, Chapters, Espresso Book Machine, Fishpond.com, James Bennet, Ingram, and Waterstone's.

Books sold via Ingram can be ordered into physical “bricks & mortar” stores but it is up to the individual stores themselves whether they choose to physically stock your book. In order to incentivize the retailer, it is recommended you offer a wholesale discount of 40%-50%.
