WELCOME TO THE INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING NETWORK (IPN)
We help Authors in the UK and worldwide publish and sell their own books. We can supply Individual ISBN Numbers (for £15 each); Barcode Images for your ISBN number (£15 each), and/or Registration on Nielsen’s (for £12).
To join our Network and get an ISBN number all you need to do is:
- Complete our Membership Form to become a member. All you need to do is provide is your name, username, email address, and book/publication details (title, author, format). Membership is free and anyone can become a member. If you are already a member, and want to purchase another ISBN Number, please complete the membership form again to proceed to the purchase page.
- Purchase your ISBN Number – Select the items you want from our Purchase Page (ISBN Number, Barcode Images, Registration) and then proceed to PayPal to make the payment.
- Receive your ISBN Number by email. You will usually receive your ISBN Number by email within 24 hours (during business days). If you ordered Barcode Images as well, you will receive these by email too. They will be supplied in 5 formats (jpeg, eps, tiff, bmp & pdf) – you can choose which format to use. If you ordered Registration as well then we will email you to request additional information from you so that we can register your publication on Nielsen’s.
- Attach the ISBN Barcode to your book – Either insert the barcode image into your cover design before publication/printing, or (if your book has already been printed) get the barcode printed onto sticky labels and attach them to the back cover of your book.
