About the Service Features Enrollment Form

Nielsen Publishers Marketplace BookScan provides unlimited searches of the BookScan US point-of-sale database. You can search by:

  • ISBN
  • Author Name
  • Title

Each title match initially presents sales numbers for the most recent week; the year-to-date; and the title's lifetime, with breakdowns for the retail and discount/other (which includes online, mass merchandisers, and specialty retailers) sales channels.

More detailed data screens show weekly sales data for up to the past 13 weeks, with breakdowns by sales channel and geographic region; DMA sales districts; and/or week-by-week sales since the book's release.

Author reports show headline sales for all of a particular author's works on a single page, in order of publication.

Weekly bestseller charts show sales figures for the top 50 or 100 titles across over 70 sub-categories. There are general lists; a dozen fiction genres; more than 40 nonfiction categories; and over 15 specific lists for categories of juvenile fiction and nonfiction.

Our special Sales Tracker lets you store up to 10 ISBNs in a single list for regular reference. (And you can upgrade your account to store more ISBNs if you wish. Regardless, you can look up and view reports for as many ISBNs as you like.)

Nielsen BookScan is the industry's only source of actual book sales, captured from the major bookselling chains, hundreds of independent booksellers, major online booksellers, mass merchandisers, grocers, and specialty and nontraditional outlets. Subscribers have access to a complete list of reporting stores.

Nielsen estimates that they capture over 70 percent of general trade print book sales in the US. View a list of reporting stores covered by Nielsen PublishersMarketplace BookScan.

For ebook sales, we now offer Bookscan subscribers an optional upgrade to access the separate PubTrack Digital service. It provides unlimited  searches of their publisher-reported ebook sales database.
