How to know who buys your book
Web Features

Hi Jack

Thanks for the reply. I look forward to it being developed. Also, when do you think we will be able to upload hi res PDFs of our books if we want to design something more bespoke, or do you think it will always be through booksmart?

Cheers Jim

How to know who buys your book

It seems odd that the only way you can keep tabs on who has bought your book is if you sign up for the "set your price" option. I am not in the USA so for me that is not even an option. I much prefer Blurb over Lulu but with this faclility Blurb really fails to deliver.  With Lulu I am emailed when a book is sold and it shows who has bought it. Surely this the first and foremost function any person selling books online would require?

 Be cool if this function was created, sooner rather than later :-)

Cannot see record of sales of my book

Hi Allison

I am in the UK. I looked at that option but I could see it was US only, is that the only way I can track my sales? I would have thought I would get an email or something to inform me of when a book sells? Seems a shame as I am now totally unaware of when my book sells and who has bought it :-(

I have a number of photography friends who seemed keen, would have been nice to keep track.

I have just put a book live, I made my first sale last night, a friend bought a copy. However I can’t see anywhere on my account to inform me of the sale. I have looked in the sales section but there is nothing. Does it not register until it has been shipped? Should I get an email to inform me?
