Frequently Asked Questions
- I’m a publisher, do I need an account?
We recommend opening a free Mixam account to manage orders securely in one location. To open an account, sign up here.
- Do I need to include an ISBN or barcode on my publication?
You don't need an ISBN or barcode in your publication. But you can read more about these features on this Support page.
- What will my buyer receive when they place an order?
Your buyer will receive a confirmation email. This email includes a summary of the order and a unique order number. If they don't find it in their Inbox, they should check their Spam and Junk folders, as emails can land there.
- There is an error in my print files, but I shared the link online - can I cancel my buyer's orders?
You can have the peace of mind that if you find an error in your publication, you can take immediate action to disable your shareable link. While you cannot prevent copies in production or in the shipping stage from reaching your buyers, you can stop orders completely. Log into your Mixam account to disable the link and re-upload your error-free files. When a print expert has completed their checks, we will send you an amended copy of your publication for your approval. Once you are satisfied with your new version and have confirmed your order, we'll give you a new publication link, which you can enable for sharing online.
- What should my buyer do if they have an issue with their order?
If your buyer has an issue during the checkout process, e.g. a payment or website error or a publication is no longer available via the shareable link, call 888.510.1456 or email email@example.com and provide as much detail as possible so we can get them back on track.
If your buyer has an issue with their physical copy, e.g. there is a print error, it’s arrived damaged or is missing, we advise emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at the earliest opportunity. They should provide an order number, overview, and photographic evidence if there is damage/errors.
If a buyer order does not arrive on the estimated shipping date, we advise they contact us 1-2 working days later by email with details, including an order number. Our Care and Resolution Team will work swiftly to respond within a couple of working days. Please note response times can take longer if a case is complex or they contact us during peak season. We also kindly ask that buyers refrain from sending follow-up emails about the same issue, and buyers should check their Spam and Junk folders in case response emails land there.

Some items may include a small, discreet 0.189" (4.8mm) QR code on the last text page and/ back cover, usually in the bottom corner. Every QR code is associated with a unique product number that allows us to track the order from production to delivery.
