As the publisher, you are able to update pricing information within your IngramSpark account. These price changes are scheduled and are now effective weekly.
You can now submit updates to a book's list price, discount and/or returns option, through your IngramSpark account no later than 11:59 PM US Central Time each Thursday, to have it applied in the Lightning Source system the next day, Friday at 12:01 AM US Central Time. The updates are then sent out to all of Ingram’s global distribution network.
To help with converting this cut off time to your local time zone you can find a time zone conversion tool here.
NOTE: Due to Daylight Savings time changes happening at different times throughout the world, please always check the time for Nashville, TN, to ensure you don’t miss the cut-off time of 11:59 PM US Central Time each Thursday.

HOW TO MAKE THE CHANGES:
You can update the price of your book, wholesale discount, or returns status by logging into your IngramSpark account, clicking on the title of your book, and then clicking on the blue square/pen edit button beside Market Pricing.
This is the verbiage you will see on your account when you submit a price change:
Please select an available effective date from the drop-down list below, prior to submitting your price and/or discount change(s). The price entered below will be made effective on the date you choose as the "Effective Date". You can change the list price for the markets that already have a list price or you can add a list price in a new market. If you need to remove a market, please contact the IngramSpark support team.
If the list price is printed on the back cover of your book, you will need to submit a cover revision for your title in addition to requesting the price change here.
*Please keep in mind that if you are changing a title from returnable to non-returnable, bookstores still have 180 days to return books. For more information on returns, click here.
