Hi Scribe,

Roughly what percentage of your Createspace sales were via Expanded Distribution?

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

True, but if IS printers get overwhelmed they might implement their own delay.

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

I'd really like to know the criteria for how they decide which ones have that delay.

Also, who decides, IS or Amazon? Is it because your calendar is in color?

Who knows.

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

FYI, I also initially used CS's free ISBNs. When they started acting wonky I bought a block from Bowker and (bleh) redid all the covers and title pages with the new ISBNs. I must say that I've been very pleased with IS, both in quality, speed, and significantly higher royalties (The Espresso sales w...

Re: [INGRAMSPARK] Ships from and sold by Amazon?

Yeah, maybe that's what they do. If so, it seems like unnecessary time and effort, but hey, who am I to judge?

[INGRAMSPARK] Ships from and sold by Amazon?

Hi everyone, I was checking my IngramSpark paperbacks on Amazon so see if the listings indicate a delay in shipping. They all say "Available to ship in 1-2 days", which is good. But, they also all say "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com". Why is that? I have to assume IS has its own printers. Any ins...

We do create paperback-ready PDF files for any books that use our conversion service (that is, every...
