What should I do if I receive spam from a Lulu account or suspect other abuse of a Lulu account?

If a Lulu account sends you spam or if at any time you suspect that someone is abusing a Lulu account, please bring this behavior to our attention using our Email Support Form. Some examples of account abuse include the following.

  • Accessing your account without your permission
  • Sending spam with links to Lulu storefronts or products
  • Other abusive behavior as outlined in the Community Use section of the Lulu Membership Agreement

I replied to a Lulu Support email. Why haven't I received a response?

If you submitted a support email to Lulu and didn't receive an auto-response acknowledging receipt of your request, your system is probably blocking emails from Lulu.

There are several reasons your system may block Lulu emails: your ISP may be blocking them, your system or networking firewall may have Lulu.com blacklisted, or the Lulu emails may be identified as spam. Please check your email application and ISP representative to find out why you are not receiving our emails.

Make sure to add "Lulu Support" <[email protected]> to your spam filter whitelist so emails from lulu will get through.

  3. Click the Payment Contacts link in the My Revenue panel on the left side of the page.
  4. Click the Edit button next to the Payee Contact information you want to change.
  5. Click Save Payee Information aftermaking your edits.

Why was my account disabled?

If your account has been removed from Lulu, the material you uploaded to Lulu was in blatant disregard of our Member Agreement. Lulu only permits distribution of your own work or work that the owner specifically granted you permission to use. Lulu will delete your content from the system if it is found to violate the Member Agreement.
