FAQ

Your order ID can be found in the order receipt email, Custom ISBN instruction email (check your spam folder if you don’t see that email), and your user account page here: https://www.isbnservices.com/my-account/orders/ 

Publisher name is either your name or the publishing name that you’ve chosen to represent your books. So for instance this might be John Smith or John Smith Publishing or even Twilight Publishing.

Please do not use the name of print-on-demand services such as IngramSpark, KDP, or Kindle Direct Publishing. When you use those services, you’re expected to provide your own publishing name. 

This is a fancy way of asking for the name of the person who ordered the Custom ISBN :)

If you’re self-publishing you can use ‘Author’ or ‘Publisher’. If you’ve purchased the Custom ISBN on behalf of an organization, use your current job title at the organization. 

This is the year you or your company published your first book or book-related product.
