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.

See Important Note further below.
Sales data is updated within 24-48 hours after we receive the order from a seller (bookstore, library, retailer, etc.). Please keep in mind that a wholesale distribution order is not considered final until after it has been shipped.
Sellers have the option to cancel orders prior to fulfillment, so these cancellations can cause fluctuations between sales and compensation data.
Here's an example:
- We received a wholesale/distribution order for a book on January 1st (This sale is listed in the Sales Reports and appeared in the reporting within 24-48 hours after 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 the sales compensation report on January 7th
- The Sales Compensation period closed on February 1st (The compensation amount is now available in the Unpaid Sales Compensation section of the Compensation Report until it is paid and then it will appear in the Paid Compensation reporting)
