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.

How do I get to zero (0.00) revenue and sell only on Lulu?

Maybe a strange question, but I do not wish to make any revenue, I'm just making the book available at the manugacturing cost.


I thought there was an option previously available to sell only on Lulu, but I don't see that now.  When I go to the pricing, it gives me a minimum price I must set which gives me revenue on Lulu.  I enter the maximum discount, but I still end up with $0.80 revenue on Lulu.


Any help you can give me?


  • Your book has an ISBN, hence the reason there is an automatic retail markup.


    If you publish a version without the ISBN, you can sell it only on Lulu at the manufacturing cost.

    This requires you to create a new project, choose the Sell Only on Lulu option when you enter the book title.
