ISBN Number Registration

We Do ISBN and Barcode Registration

Print on Demand will always recommend that self publishers register their titles with our ISBN number registration services, especially if books will be sold through traditional book stores or online book stores.
Much like our fingerprints do for our own identities, ISBN numbers serve as a unique identifier for books all around the world.
Having an ISBN number enables your title to be tracked and found by booksellers, libraries, book wholesalers and distributors in South Africa and around the world. It is also a crucial step in being able to market and sell your work on online book stores like Amazon.
If you intend on selling your book at all, we suggest that you take advantage of our barcode generation service to place a barcode on the back cover as well. Please note that these are “once off” costs.

For ISBN Number Registration We Require:

  • The full name of the title.
  • Name and address of author or publisher – we wouldn’t recommend the use of a pseudonym for the registration name.
  • Contact details: physical and/or postal address, telephone number, cell phone number, fax number, email address
  • Is the publication available in one or more formats i.e. print only or print and eBook, etc?

Frequently Asked Questions


How does ISBN Work?
An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book, a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country.
