comment Why is distributing an audiobook so much more complicated than POD or eBooks?
@rolfedh, at this point I have published with both, and so I can say from direct experience that their requirements are not the same with regard to what country you are in. With Kindle, I was able to apply directly. With ACX, I had to use an American intermediary.

I'm sorry, but your answer doesn't quite reflect the reality. I have now, at this point, published my book on ACX, CreateSpace, and Kindle, and it was not simply a matter of order of steps in the process that made a difference. I was able to upload and publish Kindle and print versions with no hassle whatsoever. With ACX, I had to work through an American intermediary. I did not encounter the same issues for all three versions as you suggest. The process for audio was significantly more difficult.

comment How important is a BISAC Category?
Thank you for responding. I haven't searched for a book by category since ten years ago when I was last physically standing in a bookstore. In any case, what I'm asking is, where these BISAC categories are used, because, for example, Amazon asks for its own separate categories.

@DaleEmery, why does having createspace listed as a publisher matter to you?

So, an ISBN is tied to the particular published edition, a particular physical manifestation of a title. I thought it was a reference to the content, and that all physical manifestations were, in essence, children of that content that inherited the same ISBN. If I've got that right, it seems that having an ISBN tied to this Amazon publication is basically harmless.
