COMPARATIVE COST OF TWO EDITIONS

I have two versions of one of my LULU books, one in English and one which has beeen translated into Russian. The urls, resepctively, are:

http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/%d0%a7%d0%95%d0%a2%d0%92%d0%95%d0%a0%d0%a2%d0%9e%d0%95-%d0%95%d0%92%d0%90%d0%9d%d0%93%d0%95%d0%9b%d0%98%d0%95/16064988

 

Both are A5, with colour cover and black and white interior. Why is the Russian version, which has more pages, cheaper than the English one (£5.97 and £4.63)?

  • Books are priced based on the binding, size, and number of pages.

     

    I had a look at the files used for both projects.

    The Russian version has 201 pages and the English version has 301 pages.

     

    I also noticed in the English version that the last page of the book is labeled as #149, but there are 301 pages in the file. It looks as if the book repeats itself beginning on page 150. Perhaps you revised the book, uploaded a new file and forgot to remove the previous file?

     

    This would account for the price difference between the books.

  • Thanks for your help. You were right - the old pdf had not been cancelled after the revision. Relief!
