Vendor of Record

If a publisher decides to change the terms of a title from returnable to non-returnable simultaneously with submission of the title to Lightning Source’s print on demand program, retailers may treat Lightning Source as the Vendor of Record. At that point, the retailer can return already existing stock to Ingram for a period of 180 days following submission as a non-returnable title to Lightning Source, and the publisher agrees to reimburse Lightning Source for the cost of said returns in accordance with this returns policy.

Returns can affect publishers in both positive and negative ways, making it important for publishers to understand the nature of returns in the book world. If you have any questions, please contact customer support.
