Is createspace a fake??????

Posted by littlemiss Sep 3, 2018

I have published 2 of my books through createspace and they appeared on Amazon. As I have never received a single Penny for them,

I decided that I wish them removed from all channels. Though I informed createspace about my wish, one of my books still shows available on Amazon. I asked createspace why they did not follow my instructions, createspace said that third parties who have purchased the book are

entitled to sell the copies they have. No I am even more surprised, because as I said, I did NOT RECEIVE 1 PENNY!!!!! So, who earned when copies of MY book were sold????????Is createspace a fake???????

I wish that to be cleared immediately or I will talk to my lawyer as someone must have cheated on me by selling my books and not give me royalties!!!!!

Order was not refunded

Posted by Selbander May 14, 2018

In January 2018 I ordered 10 copies of my book to be delivered to an address in Brazil and I was charged for this order. The books never arrived the destination and on the site of "my purchases" there is a note "This order was refunded", but I never received cash back. I already sent a message to createspace, but didn't get an answer. What to do now?

I have 3 books I have made through CreateSpace.

The 1st one I made 4 years ago printed at a very high quality with every order.


Since then, with my last two books,

Almost every other order is completely, messed up, with cuts on the cover, chopped off edges of the book. Alignment issues inside the book.

Even though Amazon will send you new books, it's extremely disappointing to have to reorder half of all books I order, because their printing process has gotten so sloppy.


I'm currently looking for another online printing option, with higher quality, if you all in the forum could recommend one, that would be great.


My Best,

I've retired a number of titles published through my account, but it recently occured to me that Createspace offers the ability to bring them back into regular distribution, indicating that they're storing copies of these retired titles but not distributing them to the public. Does Createspace have the legal right to keep files of retired titles for possible republication? Is there a way to have books completely removed from Createspace altogether so that they're not just retired, but also no longer being stored by the website? I'm no expert on copyright law but does the author have all the distribution rights, including the right to have retired titles completely removed from Createspace's servers/databases or wherever they keep all these books? Or does Createspace have the right to save and hold onto any retired book they want?

Advice Please: I have uploaded my new book to all distribution channels, and it is available on every one except This is frustrating as I am based in the UK and is my prime audience. Technical Support are apparently looking into this problem, but it is taking forever, and the publication date is looming. I tried to list the book on Ingram Spark as well (thinking that it would list on through their distribution channels) but they advised that it is not possible to list the same book on CreateSpace and Ingram Spark at the same time (despite online forums saying otherwise). My question is, does anyone have their book available on CreateSpace and also on another provider (like Lulu or similar)? What is the best UK platform for POD distribution online other than CreateSpace, that will list on Please help - I'm getting desparate here...

Hi there, I wondered if anybody can please help me with some info on Createspace turnaround time. From the point of uploading my files, how long should I expect it to take for the book to be available to buy on Amazon? Ingram Spark take 14 days, and I wondered if Createspace is the same? I read today that Lulu is MUCH faster. Taking only 4-5 days max, to get the book sent out for proof reading, and then listed on Amazon. This sounds wonderful to me. But so far, it looks like the Ingram royalty is much higher than Create Space and Lulu. I'd hugely appreciate any answers on the turnaround time at Createspace please... (if anybody knows much about the Createspace/ Ingram royalty comparrison, that'd be wonderful and really appreciated too). Thank you in advance X

Distribute elsewhere?

Posted by Slingo Jun 12, 2016

I self published my first book on Amazon CreateSpace and Kindle last year.  Now I am looking to expand to other distribution methods.

1)  Do I have to sign up for EDC (assuming I do)

2)  Can I then offer my hard copies or ebooks to any other distributors?  Such as Smashwords or Bargain Booksy?

Do I need any special permission?

It would be most helpful to know who is purchasing our new Journal.  At a minimum we would like to know the locations they are being sent.  Is it possible to receive this type of information regarding sales on CreateSpace or Amazon websites?  If so, please provide information where it may be found.  Thanks.
