How Much Does POD Distribution Cost?

INGRAMSPARK 

When you set up your book at Lightning Source/Ingram it is easy to figure out how much each book sold to bookstores will make you. It is also easy to figure out how much each book will cost to print. Each POD book printed by Lightning Source or IngramSpark can be estimated with this formula: Multiply $0.0150 per page plus $.90 for a paperback.  (If you have a hardcover, add $6.45)

There is a one-time set up fee of approximately $50 per book/ISBN.

Books will be purchased by Ingram from IngramSpark at a 55% discount off of the retail price.

 

Example:

$16.99 – Retail Price of Your Book

$7.65   – How Much Ingram Pays Your For Your Book

$4.20  – How Much It Costs To Print A 220 Page Book

$7.65 – $4.20 = $3.45    How Much You Will Make On Each Sale of a 220 Page Book

Createspace works a tad differently.  They sell to Amazon and Amazon’s customers almost exclusively.  DO NOT sign up for Extended Distribution with them… Extended Distribution is done through IngramSpark and YOU ALREADY WILL HAVE YOUR OWN RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.
