ISBN Product Details

"ISBN" stands for "International Standard Book Number".

The ISBN identifies a book or other book-like product (such as an audiobook) in a specific format and edition, but also the publisher. If an ISBN is obtained from a company other than the official ISBN Agency, or one of its channel partners, that ISBN might not identify the publisher of the title accurately. This can have implications for doing business in the publishing industry supply chain.

The purpose of the ISBN is to establish and identify one title or edition of a title from one specific publisher and is unique to that edition, allowing for more efficient marketing of products by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors.

If you are located in the United States, or a territory of the USA (Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, America Samoa, as well as military bases and embassies), Bowker is the official registration agency of the ISBN.

For more information about the ISBN standard, or if you are looking for the ISBN Agency in your jurisdiction visit the International ISBN Agency.

Number of ISBNs What Are Your Publishing Needs? Cost
Single ISBN A person who would purchase only one ISBN for $125 is often printing a single version of a single book. Purchasing a single ISBN is not adequate for those who wish to publish multiple versions of the same book (Hardback, Softback, EPUB, MOBI, PDF), or for people who plan to publish more than one book.

10 ISBNs

Why a Block of Ten (10) ISBNs is the most
commonly purchased ISBN package.

Most publishers, and Self-Publishers, publish at least three to five (3-5) versions of a book (Hardback, Softback, EPUB, MOBI, and PDF). Each version of a book requires an ISBN. Buying a block of 10 ISBNs for $295 is usually enough for at least two books. Those who purchase blocks of 10 ISBNs are typically self publishers who have researched their needs and realize this is the most cost effective purchase for their needs.

100 ISBNs A block of 100 ISBNs is usually purchased by more prolific self-publishers and small independent publishers. Purchasing a block of 100 ISBNs for $575 is usually sufficient for multiple versions of 20-25 books. If you are planning to publish 3-4 books, consider this option as you may begin to determine that you need more than 2 blocks of 10 ISBNs. A block of 100 ISBNs will begin to be a less expensive option.
