Does my eBook have to have an ISBN?

No.

Your eBook does not have to have an ISBN, which is why SolaPress offers an option that does not require you to purchase an ISBN for your eBook.

There are some retailers, like Apple and Sony, who will not “carry” your eBook without an ISBN. If you want to make sure your eBook appears on these and other sites that require an ISBN, then you’ll want to choose SolaPress’ Option 2.

Also, without an ISBN, your eBook will not appear in Bowkers Books in Print. Bowkers is the industry standard for libraries and bookstores to browse to find titles for their collections. With more and more libraries and bookstores offering access to eBooks, not having an ISBN for your eBook will cut you out of this market.
