Do you remember to use Lulu to publish your book? They might want to see these authors' complaints first! From Angela Hoy
Nearly five years ago we released our first report of Lulu grievances. We re-informed ourselves in 2011 and released Lulu Continues to receive Lots of Compplaints. We revisited their boards in 2012 to see what was going on and found a complaint on Lulu's Twitter page.
Unfortunately there are still many problems (of course new ones). Several years ago I released a book about Lulu to test her system for an essay I wrote. Logging into my Lulu bank today, I found they owe me since 2008. On BookLocker.com we immediately contact an editor if we can't get his payment for any at all.
If we are unable to ship your PayPal payment for any reasons (for example, if the PayPal ID you provide is not valid), we will also notify you through your PayPal payment details (and then by email). We would like to discuss some of the Lulu terms in the Lulu Board Terms of Service before quoting some of the new Lulu issues.
The symptoms listed below are less than one year old. There are of course many other problems in Lulu's forums. I' m very disillusioned with Lulu and the level of his services. I received my book on May 12th and it hasn't been delivered to me in New Zealand yet. I' ve been spending a large amount of cash on the development, design and print of my book for a familybirthday (not for a long time now) and my expenses have disappeared into thin air. What did I do?
We wanted Lulu to ship all of our items by post (and negotiate a competitively priced solution ) and offer a quick global delivery of services, hire more technical personnel, and immediately fix things by re-printing and shipping any problems. First, they forgot my answer to their order forms, so they didn't work on my order for two whole week to reformat my e-book.
So I sent the feedback and didn't get a response until I published something in a community board that complained. It was six a fortnight ago, and still no one has reformatted my book. Eight ledgers filed 10 wks ago haven't made it to Ingram yet? What can lulu.com do to help us keep manipulating and exploiting our clients?
Almost 3 sabbaticals ago I ordered a copy of my book..... If LULU's services are of a very low standard, what will LULU do? After waiting almost 7 week for an EPUB translation (well, by "waited" I mean someone took the trouble to tell me that they hadn't handled it for 3 week without letting me know that I had to do more things with the sourcecode), I got the sourcecode today, full of format bugs that weren't included in the orginal one.
I' ve received e-mail based help, but I really don't want to stay 7 longer than this. Anything I can do, or will I pay for the big error I made when I trusted Lulu to do what they say they could? Now, the last case I was waiting without reply for 3 week after sending an e-mail back with the current order/support tickets, then someone else asked if there were any issues.
Since I don't have 7 or even 3 more week to await your response from your technical personnel, I post here in the hopes that someone will actually do something. Now, I've released my first book projects.... I should be lucky, right? Lulu sure knows how to rains a girl's procession.... or at least that's how it starts to be.
I am dissapointed by the image qualities of the photographs in my default s & w book-print. Hello I am very disappointed because I already had five reviews for my book and the appeal was the spread was not large enough or 0.5 that is why it could not be circulated to Amazone.
The following are just two of the scornful answers other Lulu people have given to the above complaints. WE HAVE CHEAPER PRINT-ON-DEMAND PUBLISHING HOUSES WITH EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
