How to Use Catalog Reports
Catalog Reports are a valuable tool to help ensure that things are going smoothly with your books, before and after they are published on Apple Books. They provide a quick and easy way to check the status of your books, verify series information you provided, see if assets are missing for pre-orders, and get a list of any tickets that need to be addressed. Reports can be requested once per day and are available for 30 days. The file you download is a tab-delimited .txt file.
Types of catalog reports
There are four types of catalog reports:
- Book includes the Apple ID, ISBN, Vendor ID, metadata, release date, and store status for all books that have been delivered into your account.
- Book Pre-Order includes details of pre-order books, such as the release date and the assets required in order for the complete book to release.
- Book Pricing includes countries, clearances, and pricing information for all books delivered into the account.
- Ticket includes details of tickets that have been issued on your books such as the ticket status and reason.
