Paperback distribution: how long it takes
Once you add a PRINT request, and if everything appears to be correct, you'll only need to wait for the retailers to put up the book on their websites. Here are their respective timing:
StreetLib store and Totem
The paper version of your book will be available for sale on our store within 48 hours at the latest.
StreetLib store is the store dedicated to readers, who can buy the books distributed by StreetLib in all available formats: ebook, paper, audiobook. Totem, on the other hand, is the B2B store dedicated to independent bookstores, which can buy copies of paper books with a dedicated discount.
It will take approximately 10 days for the print book to be available on Amazon (IT, DE, FR, ES, UK, COM, JP).
Nota Bene: During the file synchronization, you may see the note "not available" on the page on Amazon. Don't worry, It's only a matter of file management that will be sorted in the following week or so; If, after a week, the book still appears as not available, don't hesitate to write to us.
IBS, La Feltrinelli, Mondadori, Webster/Libreria Universitaria, Il giardino dei libri
The print book will be available on these online stores within 7 working days.
NB. Il giardino dei libri selects books that deal only with the following topics: Alternative Medicine, Body-Mind & Spirit, Psychology.
Bookstores and wholesalers
Distribution in physical bookstores (only in Italy) takes place via Fastbook/Libri Diffusi: it will be active within 5 working days. If you have any problems ordering your book from physical bookstores, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The same timing applies to wholesalers: Centrolibri and Terminal Video.
