Ingram accounts can be set up for IPS (publisher direct) ordering, Ingram Book Company (wholesale) ordering, or both. To receive higher discounts, your account must be set up for IPS ordering. Note that IPS can only distribute books to customers who are exempt from sales tax.

There are many simple options for placing orders with IPS. Active customers may already be accustomed to ordering via EDI, iPage, email, or phone. iPage is Ingram’s B2B ordering site. After your new account is established, you will receive an email prompting you to create an iPage password.

When using iPage, you must place all Indiana University Press items in the Publisher Direct Discounts cart for publisher-direct pricing. If you will be placing your orders electronically, you will need to use the IPS SAN Number, 6318630, to ensure you get your full Indiana University Press direct discount.
