BOOKSELLERS RETURN PROGRAM
Our one-year program that gives your book a returnable status, which is a requirement for many retailers.
The Booksellers Return Program is one of the most beneficial services you can purchase to encourage retailers to buy your book. With our Booksellers Return Program, retailers will not only be more likely to stock your book in their store, but they will be more willing to set up book signings and speaking engagements, which also require ordering books.
When a retailer searches for your book in their system, they’ll find it listed as a returnable item, which is a 100% guarantee that they can recover their purchase costs if your book doesn’t sell. Retailers are much more likely to take a chance on an unknown author or title if the book has the Booksellers Return Program, and some chains even have a policy against ordering non-returnable titles. Reap the huge benefit and advantage this service provides.
Also, you don’t have to worry about losing royalties; returned books will not affect your royalty payment in the slightest. Your book will be listed as returnable by Ingram, the largest wholesale distributor in the world. You’ll receive a copy of your book’s listing in Ingram’s database, as a personal confirmation that your book is indeed a returnable title.
Depending on when you purchase the service in regards to the status of your book, your book will be returnable through Ingram within two to seven weeks. It then can take about 30 to 60 days for your book’s returnable status to update within retailers’ systems, depending on each individual store.
Maintain your book’s returnable status after the first year is up at a discounted rate.
Renew your book’s participation for one year in this all-time best selling service for self-published books.
