Account Setup Steps:
If you have not yet registered for an IngramSpark account, please follow the steps below. If you already have an account but would like to read about the Account Setup Tasks.
Log on to http://www.ingramspark.com/ and click on “Create Account.”
This takes you to our Create Your Account page. You will be asked basic but pertinent information to create your account. Once you have completed the information, please click on the blue “Continue” button to move forward.
You will receive a message similar to the one below:
Thank you, xxxxx for creating an IngramSpark account.
To complete the setup process just click on the link in the email that we just sent to you. You have 7 days to activate your account or you can easily start over by returning to our homepage at www.ingramspark.com.
Open your email to access the account verification link, and then log in to your IngramSpark account using your email address and password used on the Create Your Account page.
After logging in and agreeing to general terms of the site, you will be taken through four agreements. You will be required to accept the Global POD agreement and the Global Ebook agreement, but it does not mean you are required to use those services. It simply means that you have those services on our account if you choose to use them later.
- Global POD - Print-on-Demand (POD) services via our Lightning Source companies in the US, UK, AU, as well as the Global Connect and Espresso POD networks.
- Global Ebook - Ebook distribution services to all of our Ebook Distribution Partners except Amazon Kindle and Apple.
- Amazon (Kindle) Ebook (optional) - If you want to distribute your Ebooks to Amazon Kindle. (You can opt out if you are uploading directly to Kindle).
- Apple (Agency) Ebook (optional) - If you want to distribute your Ebooks to Apple’s US and International iBooks and iTunes stores.
Once you select “I Accept” for the agreements, you will enter your electronic signature and title (e.g., owner). Click on the blue “Sign Agreements” button, and you are ready to access your IngramSpark account!
I have an IngramSpark account
When you first access your IngramSpark account, you are taken to your Dashboard. This is the page that you will see each time you log in. You should notice that there is a section in the middle of the page titled “Account Setup Tasks” with a green checkmark beside “Complete Account Information.” There are still three other account setup tasks to complete before you can move forward with uploading your titles. Once all sections are complete, the red X’s will turn into green check marks, and you can start uploading your titles! For a video guide of account setup and your Dashboard, please click here.
