One of the major benefits of using IngramSpark is the distribution that is offered. When you self-publish with IngramSpark, you have access to one of the industry’s largest global retailer networks.
When a bookstore or retailer wants to order a book, it is typically purchased through a distributor or wholesaler, such as Ingram, instead of directly from the printer or publisher. With Ingram’s Print on Demand service, a retailer can order a title through Ingram Book Company, and the order prints, ships to, and arrives to the customer or store within a few days. The sale of the book is added to your monthly compensation report when it leaves our print facility, and you receive the compensation payment approximately 90 days later.
