Set up your Blurb Photo Book for sale on Amazon

1. Finish your book, upload, order, and review a printed copy to make sure your book is ready for global distribution. 

2. Sign up to sell your book, which enables you to sell your photo book on Amazon.

3. Go to your dashboard and click the button Sell My Book.

4. Enter information about your book on the Book Details tab. Click Save & Continue when done.

When finished setting up your book, click Save & Continue.

6. On the Review and submit screen, give your book details, pricing, and format availability a final review. Then indicate that you have reviewed your book, understand ISBN ownership, and agree to the distribution services agreement. Click Submit to submit your book to Amazon.

7. You should see a confirmation at the top of the screen "Your book has been submitted to Amazon.com and will be listed within three days."

How to find your book on Amazon

One day after you set your book up for sale, go to Amazon and search for your book using your ISBN. If you used your own ISBN, search for that number on Amazon. If you had a Blurb-provided ISBN, you can find out what that number is by following these instructions. You can also search using your author name or book title, but ISBN is a more precise search.
