Changes to the list price, wholesale discount and returns option are now scheduled weekly! Price changes are different than other metadata updates because they affect your publisher compensation and distribution orders.
You no longer have to wait to make these changes only once a month. You can now update the pricing, returns option or discount more quickly, to meet a bookstore's requirements for an in-store event, as an example. Only changes to the list price, wholesale discount, and returns option are updated 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.

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.
