IngramSpark Live Chat

UPDATE! (See Section Below)

In today’s world, you’re used to 24/7 access to anyone you want. So if you’ve tried using IngramSpark’s online chat feature, you may have been disappointed. Frustrated. Annoyed. Because most of the time, they’re offline. There’s simply no one there. Especially if you have questions about misprinted books or other issues. So what are the hours for IngramSpark Live Chat?

They Aim to Please

For those who have used IngramSpark live chat in the past, these reduced hours may be a shock. For a long time, they were available just about any time of the day or night. Though this may be confusing, don’t get upset.

In our experience, IngramSpark is eager to please and quick on the response. Despite being a large, international company, they work hard to make sure their customers are happy. So while they may not have open chat support at all hours, they go out of their way to field your questions and find resolutions to any problems you may have.
