Ordering and Customer Service Information For Retail And Wholesale Accounts

Indiana University Press is distributed to the trade by Ingram Academic Services, which is part of Ingram Publisher Services umbrella of brands. Ingram Academic is a full-service distributor for many major publishers and offers easy ordering options, fast delivery, and excellent service – all at publisher direct discount prices.

Account Setup

If you currently conduct business with Ingram Publisher Services or Ingram Academic, you should already have an account established, and no further action is required on your part.

If not, an account with IPS should be requested. Please visit and follow the prompts under “New to Ingram?” to begin the setup process. Specify that you would like to set up an IPS account.  Feel free to contact the IPS Customer Service Department at [email protected] or 1.800.937.0152 if you need assistance.  Ingram accounts can be set up for IPS (publisher direct) ordering, Ingram Book Company (wholesale) ordering, or both.  To receive higher discounts (publisher direct), your account must be set up for IPS ordering.

Placing An Order

There are many simple options for placing orders with IPS / IA.  Active customers may already be accustomed to ordering via EDI, iPage, email, or phone. iPage is Ingram’s B2B ordering website.  After your IPS account is established, go to and follow prompts under “New to iPage?” to register for an iPage login.  

When using iPage, you must place all Indiana University Press items in the Publishers 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 publisher’s direct discount. Orders must be placed through IPS to receive publisher direct discounts.


Purchases made through IPS will generate an IPS invoice. Account statements may come from Ingram Book Company if you purchase from multiple Ingram companies (such as Ingram Publisher Services and Ingram Book Company).
