The Global Exchange service allows Italian publishers to distribute and sell their titles worldwide through a print-on-demand system.
The service is provided by Rotomail Italia in partnership with Ingram Content Group, it allows publishers to place their titles in the Ingram catalogue and distribute them worldwide through a unique global distribution network in collaboration with local printers and retailers.
The publisher accepts the contract about the Global Exchange service.
The publisher selects the titles from their own catalog that they wish to distribute globally and uploads them to the Global Exchange archive, entering the necessary metadata and defining the distribution markets and their selling prices.
Titles become part of the Ingram catalog and are distributed to markets selected by the publisher during the upload stage.
When one of the titles is purchased, it is printed on demand and sent to the bookstore or final customer who placed the order.
Publisher can track the sales performance of their titles from the "Compensation Report" section.
