How Do I Purchase An ISBN For My Book?
ISBN stands for The International Standard Book Number. It’s a 13-digit number that identifies your book and publisher. If you’re going to be selling your book through a distribution chain, then you need an ISBN. If you’re just going to hand it out to your family and friends, then don’t waste your money purchasing an ISBN.
To purchase an ISBN, visit www.MyIdentifiers.com. The cost for a single ISBN is $125.00 or you may purchase a block of ten for $295.00. If you’re a large Publishing House, then you may want to purchase a block of 1,000 ISBN’s for a rate of only $1.00 each.
You will also need a barcode for your book, which is a separate cost of $25.00. The barcode can also be purchased from the myidentifiers.com website. The bar code is what stores use to scan the book at the time of purchase. It’s important to note that if you’re publishing with a well-established publishing house, then they will purchase the ISBN and bar code for you.
