The Sales by Region report allows you to see where in this world your print books are selling through Ingram’s Global Distribution Network, and where your ebooks are selling through CoreSource.
This is a heat map that gives you an overall picture of the world and where your titles are selling in each continent and country.
The darker the green, the more sales there were.
The option to zoom in to the reporting is only available in the Full Report and is not available on the Main Dashboard or Sales Dashboard.
You can hover over an area in green to see how many sales there were in a continent or a specific country and use the scroll bar to zoom in for a closer view of sales.
You can use the + button to zoom in and increase the size of an area in the heat map. Use the – button to reduce the size and click on the button with the house icon to change the map back to the original image.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As part of our reporting redesign, we have completely overhauled how we report sales data to you. The sales data you are receiving in the new reporting is more up-to-date than ever before. Whereas the classic sales data was not reported to you until 24-48 hours after a distribution order was completely closed out of our system, your new sales data is updated within 24-48 hours after we receive the order from our retail partner. This means you see your sales happening closer to the date of transaction than ever before. However, please keep in mind that an order is not considered final until after it has been shipped. Retailers have the option to cancel orders prior to fulfillment, so these cancellations can cause fluctuations between your sales and compensation data.
Here's an example:
- We received a wholesale/distribution order for a book on January 1st (This sale is now available in the New Sales Reports and appeared in the reporting on January 1st)
- The order is printed and shipped to the retailer/bookseller on January 5th. (Retailer ship times may vary)
- The order is posted to our sales compensation reporting on January 7th (This sale is now visible on the Print Sales Report in the Classic Sales Reports)
- The Sales Compensation period is closed on February 1st (The compensation amount is now available in the New Unpaid Sales Compensation section of the Compensation Report)
