How Does Lulu Direct Work?

Once you’ve connected a Lulu Project to your website through Lulu Direct, your customers can purchase your book directly.

When they purchase, Lulu will automatically charge the payment method you’ve saved with us to pay for printing and shipping. Then, the book’s files are sent to the printer, where we’ll print, bind, and package the book for delivery. Finally, we ship the book directly to your reader.

After setting up all of Lulu Direct’s features, the entire ordering process can be automated, freeing you up to create more content!

Can Each Of My Customers Personalize Their Individual Order?

Yes, with Lulu Print API, you can create personalized books, accept orders through your site with those personalizations, and send the orders to Lulu’s printers.

Our Shopify app, Wix, and WooCommerce integrations do not have personalization options for individual projects. Each book you sell using Lulu Direct must be connected to the Shopify app, Wix, or WooCommerce with prepared files. Complete personalization requires a new file for each order based on the customer’s personalization.
