Re: Why isn't Ingram giving bookstores the discount I am offering?

I believe that Ingram has its own marketing and

bookstores will not accept Ingram. B & N.

CS is not accepted either in retail stores.

Uh, no. IngramSpark is owned by Ingram Content Group, which owns the Ingram catalogue. Ingram is the largest book distributor in the United States. Most US bookstores obtain their stock from Ingram.

CreateSpace is a printer. If you use your own ISBN, there's really no reason that any bookstore would be aware that CS printed the book unless you told them so.
