ISBN Identification

$49.99 per Item


... in YOUR name, so YOU keep the rights!

Planning on selling your book in stores? You'll need an ISBN.

An ISBN is a unique number that identifies a book. Many books have the same or similar titles, so bookstores and book distributors use an ISBN to be sure they're ordering the correct book. If your book doesn't have an ISBN, bookstores (including online bookstores) won't carry it.

Each version of the book (paperback, hard cover, ePub, MOBI, PDF, audiobook, etc.) has it's own unique ISBN. So you might need 4 or 5 ISBNs just for one of your titles. That's why it's best to buy your ISBNs in blocks of 10, 100, or even 1,000. Keep in mind that once these numbers are assigned, they cannot be re-used.

At Alpha Book Publisher, you can buy ISBN numbers and barcode packages that include:

  • setting up your account with Alpha Book Publisher, where all bookstores and book distributors go to find your book

  • purchasing ISBNs in singles, or in blocks of 10, 100 or 1,000

  • generating unique barcodes for each of your ISBNs purchased.
