We're aware of an issue with converting some DOC, DOCX, ODT, and RTF files to EPUB through our Ebook Wizard.

At this time, we're investigating the problem and looking for a solution.

If you've encountered this issue while converting your file, we suggest attempting to create and upload an EPUB directly to our system.

While there are a number of EPUB conversion options, Calibre (Download Here) has shown the best results for creating an EPUB for the Lulu system. Please review their extensive Help resources (Found Here) to create an EPUB 2 that our system can validate.

We've also created this Forum Thread. Post questions here and we'll do our best to respond and assist.

Distance Sales

Lulu collects French Distance Sales VAT for sales to customers in EU countries where the annual sales threshold has not yet been met.  These rates are applied to items printed in France and sold/delivered to a customer in another country. 

Using Malta as an example, the threshold for annual sales has not been met so Lulu is not required to register or collect VAT on behalf of Malta for sales to customers in Malta.  However, EU treaties require Lulu to collect French VAT at the distance rate for sales to customers in Malta.

The following EU countries are subject to distance VAT rates:

Bulgaria

Croatia

Cyprus

Czech Republic

Estonia

Greece

Hungary

Latvia

Lithuania

Luxembourg

Malta

Poland
