Ingram Advance -Ingram Advance is a monthly print catalog that Ingram Book Group distributes to booksellers and libraries around the world. Titles are eligible to be included in Ingram Advance only once when they are first released. Therefore it is imperative that if you are interested in this opportunity, it must be ordered with your initial POD/Print order. With this marketing opportunity, Ingram will produce a short description of the title—using your short and long description as a guideline,  retail pricing information and a color cover image will also be included.

Distribution - Ingram's 13,000+ customers, 6200 book retailers, 7000 librarians and 120 international accounts. 6 titles are listed on each page of the catalog.

Titles submitted to Ingram Advance will not appear in the catalog until 3-4 months after the title has been submitted to Ingram—titles are submitted to Ingram approx. 24 hours after final approval of your interior and cover proofs. The three to four month lead-time is attributed to the lead-time necessary for print production processing of the catalog.

This program can only be purchased if your book is returnable - please see our Bookseller Return Program in the next column over.

Bookseller Return Program-This program allows your POD Perfect bound/Paperback book to be marked returnable to the brick and mortar booksellers for 24 months. This program is essential if you want your book placed on a shelf at any of the commercial book sellers. Please visit our FAQ section for further details regarding the return program. Optional renewal will be invoiced at 449.00 per territory regardless of which territory you are renewing, and must be paid within 60 days of anniversary date of this program. If more than a 60 day time period lapses in participation of this program, the cost to restart your participation will be $649.00 per territory, regardless of which territory is being re-instated. If you order this program after your book has been in our system, it will take 15-60 days for the 'returnable' status to update in the databases of the brick and mortar booksellers. This is not an automatic global program, this program is active per territory.

If you pick this option, your royalty will be calculated and placed under a trade discount of 55% instead of our standard 40%. The two main components needed to have your book on a shelf require the 55% discount, and the Bookseller Return Program.
